This product features 15 slides with arrays of Christmas items. The class will discuss the multiplication facts represented by the arrays. Then there is a 10 slide power point of word problems for students to make arrays to solve. I bring in little bags of candy for students to use to make their arrays. After the lesson they get to eat their candy---they love it! There is also a BONUS problem tied to each word problem.
I do the slides one day with the class as a whole group. A few days later I put out the 15 array cards in a math center for them to write the multiplication facts. There is a student answer sheet for this activity. Then a couple days later I put out the 10 word problem cards for them to solve on their own during center time. There is also a student answer sheet for this job. I have also included answer keys for both centers.
So you are getting a whole group lesson and 2 center activities all in one! Be sure to copy, laminate and cut out the slides to use in your centers.
