This, 3 in 1, game set offers several levels of play taking students from the concrete to the abstract and allowing for differentiated instruction. This game focuses on Common Core standard 3.OA.9, where students identify arithmetic patterns and explain them using properties of operations. The first set of cards allows students to develop a conceptual understanding of multiplication by seeing a model for each problem. Once students have this basic understanding they can move onto a semi-concrete level by playing a matching or concentration game with the second two sets of cards. In this game students should match the model with the correct multiplication problem. The final level of play, using the card set with basic multiplication problems, gives students multiplication practice at the abstract level. Finally, you can assess students’ understanding by having them complete the recording sheet.
**Tip—Print more than one copy of the game board and have small groups play at different levels based on their level of understanding.
