This set of 103 pages worth of cards ranging from 1/1 all the way to 144/12 are intended for students to use during small group instruction or during centers. There are a total of 12 sets of cards/ games. Each set of cards has a different color so that it is easy to separate them out. It is suggested to print and laminate possibly using cardstock.
There are many uses for this:
-DIVISION: These are a must have when learning why 144/12 (or any / fact) is equal to 12 (or any other answer).
-MULTIPLICATION: By purchasing Multiplication Concrete Model Game, you can also teach your kids the same thing with division models.
-FACT FAMILIES: Also by purchasing this and the Multiplication game mentioned above, you can model fact families for Multiplication and Division!
How To Use:
-Fantastic for small group instruction when first introducing multiplication to kiddos who are seeing it for the first time.
Intended to show students how multiplication can be shown in a picture, my students understanding has increased when it comes to introducing division. Students simply match the division sentence to the matching picture. For example: if student pulls a 144/12 card, they want to find the picture that shows 12 groups with 144 pictures in all and then determine that 144/12=12 pictures in each group.
-While in small groups students learn about "loops and groups". Simply explained, if a student draws a card 25/5, the student will draw what that would look like by drawing 5loops (circles) and putting 1 tally in each group until all groups are equal and a total of 25 tallies have been given. Then by looking at their loops and groups, students can determine that 25/5=5. I would suggest teaching students this so they understand why 25/5=5 as with any other division fact.
