This main purpose of this graphic organizer is to help students remember to do their multiplication problems off to the side, to keep them organized, and to not erase or cross them out.
I know how hard it can be for students to keep their long division organized! Use these organizers to help them remember to organize their work and keep their multiplication problems off to the side.
- When they do a multiplication problem and realize it is too low or too high, they should put a red box around it. This is so they know this problem was not used, but they might be able to use it for future problems.
- When they do a multiplication problem that they will use in their quotient, they should highlight it in yellow.
This strategy has really helped my students!
