The 6 pages with box method problems use the same numbers as the 6 without box method so you can choose to use one method, the other, or both. If you choose to teach both, you can show the students the problems side by side. I like to teach my students partial products without the box and with the box and let them choose which method works best for them.
The practice pages are perfect for guided practice, partner work, independent work, math workshop, reteach, small groups, or homework.
