This multiplication set includes three activities and addresses the different representations of multiplication that your kiddos need to know! Detailed directions are on every student page so students should be able to be independent. Perfect for your math centers, daily practice, or a most enjoyable and productive Friday afternoon lesson!
Included in this twelve-page resource:
1) Cover page
2) Multiplication facts (through 12 x 12) - Facts are in a list rather than in table form for easy student reference.
3) Partner game one - Students fill in ten bowling pins with two- and three-digit products from the multiplication tables and then solve the problems on the playing cards, crossing off a pin every time a card matches the product written on a pin. First one done wins! Space is given for students to record ALL facts on all cards pulled because I think writing down the facts helps them to stick just a little bit more!
4) Partner game two - Students use the playing cards to do battle for the higher product, crossing off one bowling pin every time he or she pulls the higher card. Space is given for students to record ALL facts on all cards pulled. Student with the most pins crossed off wins!
5-6) Individual activity - Perfect for independent practice! Students pick ten products from the multiplication tables to fill in on the bowling pins. They then generate a representation for each one using words, arrays, word problems, pictures, or repeated addition. An example is given of each type!
7) Bonus practice page - number lines! An example is given plus space for students to write three multiplication facts and create a number line representation of each one.
8-11) Playing cards - Sixty-two lovingly-crafted cards which include NO NUMBERS! Each two- and three-digit product from the multiplication list is included at least once (up through 12 x 12). Every card has either words, repeated addition, pictorial representations, arrays, number lines, or bowling word problems, so students will get a terrific chance to see multiplication represented in all of its glorious forms! Print on cardstock and laminate so your cards can live a long and happy life.
