Multiplication: Multiplication Practice Paper - Sticker Rewards
Use this to help you teach common core 4.NBT 5
Working on two - four digit multiplication by one digit is not always the most exciting activity to do in class. It's a lot of repetition... practice, practice, practice. I created this product to add an extra reward element and hopefully to make it a tad more fun.
Students use the graph paper squares to write and solve whatever problems you give them. The graph paper is good when kids get started because it helps them keep everything lined up. Above each box is a place for a sticker. Use whatever stickers you have... even something as simple as a little start will work fine.
There are two sheets. One has taller boxes to provide space for two digit by two digit problems. They will need the space to do the addition part.
In my class, I introduce a problem. The kids write the problem down and solve it. I quickly walk around checking to see if they got the right answer. If they did, they get a sticker and move on to the next problem you give them. If they don't get it correct, they need to check and correct their steps, resolve the problem, and hopefully earn the sticker.
You could even use this as a math center once the students know the steps to multiplying. You give them the problems you want them to solve. Give them calculators to check their answers (they need to show all steps, of course), and then if they got it right, they can take a sticker to put on their own paper.
Use this however you see fit in your math class.
I always appreciate positive feedback, so thank you for taking time out to let me know your thoughts. Hopefully they are positive :-)
