This set of 4 guides is helpful when learning long multiplication algorithm or as an accommodation for students with special learning needs. The pages use alternating grey and white rows, which is helpful for students with perceptual challenges. For some students, plain white can seem to blend together and make the numbers look jumbled. This page also uses horizontal and vertical lines to help align the problem, and separate the digits to allow for successful computation. Each page offers a slightly different level of support for the student.
Start with page one and work the students down the steps, then they may be ready to go to regular lined paper, while some students may always perform better on this grey and white page. Take out the alignment, and perceptual challenges and a student can focus on the steps of long multiplication or long division. These are a great way to teach young ones how to line up their work. Don't save this kind of thing for kids who struggle; it can be useful for all.
