Multiplication of Whole Numbers is a skill to practice all year! These math stations can help! 5 different station board activities are included. Print and fill the pockets! (Instructions for making the boards can be found below.) No laminating and minimal prep work saves you time! Print on colored paper to spice things up! When the unit is over, simply put the next unit in and you are ready to go!
If your district uses the TEKS Resource System, this unit matches perfectly to Unit 2!
If your district uses something else, the problems are rigorous and are aligned to the standards!
This Math Station Board groups student expectations CCSS- 4NBT.B5 and TEKS- All processing, 4.4B, 4.4C, 4.4D, 4.4G, 4.4H and 4.5A that address fluently multiplying whole numbers using a variety of strategies, rounding whole numbers, and representing multi-step problems using strip diagrams and equations with a letter representing unknown quantities.

*This is the same as Unit 1 and 2*
Fact Fluency begins with learning doubles, fives, ones and zeros and progressively teaches strategies for learning all of the facts. Students don’t just memorize the facts; they work on strategies for finding an answer to an unknown fact. 6 games are included. These games can be used for any fact strategy group! Best of all- the games can be played with a student’s own cards! One student can be working on perfect squares in the same game as a student working on double doubles! Differentiating a station is key! This helps with scheduling- no need to worry about which fact group kids are in!
