Mollie People help your little people learn the multiplication process using Multiplication Windows!
Use the "Partial Product" page in a sheet protector with dry erase markers. This large mat makes monitoring student work easy! The information boxes at the top contain reminders and helpful hints to use during the multiplication process. In addition, the color coding on the window reminds students which factors to multiply and where to put the products. The gray bars to the side help students keep the addition lined up to promote adding success.
Use the "Multiplication Practice" page to allow student to practice the process independently.
Then transition to the page which blends the Partial Product Model with the standard algorithm. This handy mat logically shows how the partial products fit into the algorithm.
If your students are having trouble carrying properly on 2 x1 digit problems, see my store for a great activity to help. Also, see more multiplication ideas and grids. :)
