Not throwing in the need for carrying right away is a great way to slowly introduce this kind of multiple-step problem without overwhelming students.
VERY easy to implement.
1) A SMART Notebook file with numbers color coded and separated by place value. Great for learners that struggle with multiple steps, because it scaffolds the support of adding in the 0 in the one's place and the addition sign for that last step in 2 by 2 digit multiplication.
2) Color Coded Steps Shown on a Completed Problem. Perfect for giving as a handout to students to reference when introducing the content, or applying it on their own.
3) Three printable worksheets with the same color coding, grid-form separation of place value, and the zero and addition sign support shown on the SMART slides. Great for assessment, or for having students follow along as you work through the problems on the board.
4) One worksheet without the support listed above. Great for assessing comprehension at the end of the lesson(s). Can also be printed in black-and-white to scaffold the use of color-coding.
