This is his first lesson with multiplication while he has been working with me. We skip counted prior to starting and talked about grouping in skip counting. The cards I used are from Math-Aids.com. There are a ton of materials on this website! I snipped a couple of examples of the many flash cards they offer. Best of all their resources are FREE!
We all know students need the foundational skills to be successful in multiplication. Do you have any ideas or activities you would like to share? Please leave them in the comment section below. We can all benefit from shared ideas! Teachers are just so smart! Don't you agree!
I'm putting my first Farley's Currently in this post. Below the Currently is a fun link for 4th of July Subway Art from FiveArtHome.com. Samantha gave me permission to share it with my friends. I have already printed mine and put it in a frame. Enjoy!
