.......Understanding the basics when it comes to Multiplication facts.
This is a great pack to use when introducing students to the basic multiplication facts, or it can be used with fourth and fifth graders to review the concept of multiplication.

In this past, I have had to work with fourth graders that have had trouble mastering the multiplication facts. I found that many still don't even see multiplication for what it is, repeated addition. This pack would be great for me to use with a group like that to take them back through a basic understanding of ideas related to multiplication.
You can use this multiplication packet as individual pages, or you can use it to create a multiplication book, which is probably what I would do.
I have included a cover page if you choose to make the multiplication book. One cover is in color and one is in black and white that the kids can color.
There is a 'poster' page (inspired by my other many posters in my store) for each fact from 1-12 (no zero page, so please know that ahead of time).
On each page, students are taken through the concepts of skip counting, drawing a picture of a multiplication fact, drawing an array of that same fact, completing the basic multiplication facts for that number, showing repeated addition for each fact, and using the commutative property to rewrite the problem.
In addition, there are two other pages that could be copied onto the back of the poster page. One is where the students draw a picture for each multiplication fact. The second page, which is my favorite to use, shows and array for each fact. I have already added the arrays using dots, but I suggest that you have the kids turn that into a grid array.
I feel sure that this will help your students better understand the concept of multiplication, and they will have fun doing it. Plus, they will have a cute book once you are done introducing the facts. :-)
