Low Prep Multiplication Journal includes 84 pages of interactive journal activities to use as an introduction to the concept of multiplication, its different models of representation, and for practice with fact families 0-12. Interactive journals are a great learning asset for students, but all the cutting and gluing of traditional interactive journals takes away valuable learning time in an already cram-packed day. This interactive division journal requires low prep and cutting or gluing!
