For your convenience, I have provided pages that demonstrate the strategies I taught my students when introducing this lesson. I created them to give my students additional multiplication practice. I thought the task cards would be more engaging and less intimidating that a worksheet.
These task cards are separated into 3 categories (multiplying 2-digit, 3-digit, and 4-digit by a one digit number) because this is the order in which I exposed them. Feel free to use them one set at a time or all at the same time, whatever your students need.
For whole class instruction, I tape them around the room for “Scoot” and the students rotate at their own pace. I will either go over the answers as a class, allow students to self check upon completion, or I grade them myself.
For small group instruction, I allow the students to work in predetermined groups of 4-6 kids and solve the problems together. I provide them with an answer sheet to self check.
OR I use them during my guided math center rotation so I can use with students one at a time.
These task cards were made specifically for 4th graders in North Carolina. These task cards satisfy partial criteria for CCSS 4.NBT.5.B.5.
