Product Description

The distributive property is the foundation for algebra and one of the most effective ways of developing mental math skills in third through sixth grade. It comes naturally to some, while most need MANY opportunities to explore this important idea.

This simple game is something your students probably played in first grade to compose 10. Now it evolves to composing products up to ANY quantity! Simply write numbers of your choice on a bunch of foam shapes or counters (you can probably get plenty from fellow k-2 teachers ;) and spill them onto a picture. "I spilled 8 threes. 5 fell on the image and 3 fell on the white space or the table.

5 x 3 = 15 which is one PART. 3 x 3 = 9 which is the other PART

So the WHOLE is 8 x 3 = 24.

Spill the counters... Show the partial products in the part whole models & solve.

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

INCLUDES:

• 14 Tween friendly images to "spill" counters on!
• 5 Different Recording Sheets
• Visual instructions (for teacher AND student centers)
• Differentiated Samples

OPTIONS:

• Works great for partial quotients division too!
• Kids can level themselves up as they master facts!
• Struggling learners get LOTS of repetition in a more natural, engaging way! Encourage students to say each fact aloud as they write. Challenge them to quiz each other on the facts they remember from the day's activity!
