I love implementing Guided Math into my Math Block! However the key to success with Guided Math, is to provide fun content-related centers for the other students who are not meeting with me that day. In addition to, it is important to change centers on a consistent basis so students do not get bored. I created these booklets to help with that! These booklets focus on mastering multiplication facts using an interactive approach. These can be created separately or added into an already existing math journal. You can store these booklets individually in small baggies and place in a basket at specified centers. You may also wish to use these as an activity during your Guided Math or use during a whole-group lesson. After students have completed all of the booklets, they may either mount onto a double file-folder lap book or keep booklets in a Baggie for future reference and skill practice.

Students will read each multiplication equation and draw either an array or an equal group picture model to express their thinking. Students will then write the multiplication equation and the product under their array or pictorial model. I purposely did NOT want the product to be written on the provided equation because I want students to be able to quiz themselves once the booklets are complete— I didn’t want the product to be exposed until the flap is lifted. On the “Factors of” page, students will shade in the factors of the specified number. Students may color their cover page however you see fit. I like to have my students trace in marker or crayon and color lightly with crayon. Students will then cut and order pages. Pages can either be stapled into a booklet, glued onto a double file-folder and later used as a reference for practice, or glued into a journal as an additional interactive piece to an existing math journal
