I've created a Multiplication Lap Book that can be used as teaching and practice tool. I have found a lot of great multiplication lapbooks, however none of them exactly met the needs for my 3rd graders. I created this lapbook to best teach what my 3rd graders need to know to master multiplication, in particular having them understand the foundations of multiplication. I hope you find it useful for your students as well.
*If you laminate the lap book the students can use dry erase markers for practice with the lap books, which allows for a whole lot of use out of the lap books.
The lap book includes:
*Number Cards and equation symbols (Print as many as needed to differentiate)- .Use these cards to have students practice multiplication and division problems, demonstrate properties of multiplication, or create fact families.
*Multiplication Flash Cards for 0 to 12 facts- Students can use as them to study facts by memory, or along with the multiplication chart to demonstrate the facts using the array blocks.
*Array Blocks- These small blocks can be used for students to create arrays to demonstrate and solve multiplication (or division) facts/problems .The blocks can also be used to demonstrate multiplication or division using the grouping method.
*Number Cards, Array Blocks, and Multiplication Fact Flash Card Pockets for storage
*Multiplication Practice Chart- includes a place for students to demonstrate a multiplication fact using arrays or groups and repeated addition.
* Multiplication Properties Flipbook with definitions and examples
* Bonus Multiplication Vocabulary Flipbook- Includes defintions for factor, multiple, product and array.
*Detailed Direction Page with Pictures.
*There are so many different ways this lap book can be utilized to practice multiplication as well as basic division. The lap book is set up in way you can adapt it to fit your own classroom needs. . I personally plan on laminating the lap books for my class and using them as a teaching and practice tool. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like any ideas of how to use this item in your classroom!
