What educators are saying

Once again, another resource that changed the dynamics of my small groups and added what was missing. Thank you!
Thanks!! This looks to be a a great resource for helping students master multiplicative thinking which should really help with the upcoming proportional reasoning unit.


Developing a deep understanding of multiplication concepts and estimation is essential...but we want students to be fluent with computation too, right? But are you tired of multiplication worksheets for computation practice?


There is no doubt that students need many opportunities to practice the computation skills they learn. Will asking them to complete multiple worksheets filled with multiplication problems accomplish this? SURE! That being said, I think we can design learning opportunities that are richer, encourage thinking and reasoning, provide opportunities for math dialogue and debate, and…gasp…are fun!

What is included?

3 sets of number cards that are used for each included activity. These cards are low ink and can be copied on colored paper or cardstock to help keep things organized. The three sets (Sets A, B, and C) allow you to either differentiate within your class OR to use Set A (single digits and low double digits) early in the year and then use the larger numbers later. Set C includes two and three digit numbers to multiply. You have tons of options!

  • 4 different “class challenges”. Use these as a warm up to your math class, as a review of addition/subtraction throughout the year, or as a great test prep activity. Directions for each are included on one page.

  • 4 whole class or small group learning activities that reinforce computation through cooperation, reasoning, and estimation. Directions are written to fit on one page so they can be included at centers for students to use as guides if needed.

  • 3 sets of task cards (one for each number set—3, 4, and 5 digits). These cards are perfect for math workshop, small group instruction or review, or even enrichment. They vary in levels of challenge and are great for individuals or collaborative learning. Each set comes with blank recording sheets as well.

I hope you find these activities both fun and meaningful. Check out the preview for more information about what is included.
