This packet includes 3 manipulative mats including 2 for multiplication and 1 for division. Mats are printable in color or in black & white on 8 1/2 X 14 inches paper. Children begin to develop a deeper understanding of multiplication as they visualize repeat addition, skip counting, and times tables as multiplication. Students can build arrays on the times table chart and use the division mat to illustrate repeated subtraction and skip counting. Students may also express the breaking down of groups into subgroups as division. Two versions of the record book cover are included along with 4 templates for interior pages. Students can practice repeat addition, skip counting, times tables, repeat subtraction, and division independently, in small groups, or model along with the teacher as they learn these basic principles. Teachers guide students through rich discussion on the processes as they use manipulatives for hands on practice and exploration using an Elmo for whole group and 1 or more sets of manipulatives in small groups. Easy to use instructions are included along with helpful tips for differentiation and scaffolding. A take-home parent letter is also included for copying. This packet can be used for individual instruction, small group, whole group, mentor teams, afterschool tutoring, intensive intervention, homework, parent involvement, Special education and homeschool use. The activities can also be used as games and math centers. See my Teacher's Helpers store for a free comparative product download.
