I created these after finding a need with my own students
who really needed frequent multiplication review.
We write the factors inside the shape and
then solve in the white space after the equal
sign. The students don’t seem to mind
multiplying when they can figure out the
shape code! I also allow those finished to color
in the scene if they wish. It can serve as a basic
review of 2-Dimensional shapes as well.
The “theme” of the Beach could work for beginning of the year when coming from summer vacation, as school gets out for the summer, or any Beach themed week or unit you might be having!
