This learning center is designed to help math students understand the primary ideas behind basic multiplication and teach students to use language to create multiplication story problems. The adorable manipulatives will capture your students' attention and deepen their understanding of multiplication. I use this with my students and they LOVE it!

Lesson Plan and Tips:
Model for students how to use the manipulatives to answer the word problems, write your own word problems and complete the fact family triangles. Allow students to work in pairs or independently to answer the word problems, write word problems and complete fact families for each of the factors. This also works great as a center.
Teacher Resources and Preparation:
Cut out the items on the teacher resource pages and place into plastic bags labeled 1-12. Use packaging tape to attach the dividend star to the bag or just insert it into the bag as well.
