This product can be used in centers for students to practice their 2-12 multiplication facts. You can laminate the cards and use beads as counters. Students will pull cards and create the correct amount that goes in each group to find the answer. The card shows the amount of groups as well as repeated addition to help students relate the two. Repetition will really help students get the idea of how to multiply using manipulatives so they have a better understanding of the concept.
