Multiplication Monday

So we have been working on multiplication for a couple of weeks.  We have done "Circles and Stars", cut and pasted arrays, and practiced using multiplication to solve repeated addition problems.  This Monday, we did a "Multiplication Around the Room" activity.  I used it as kind of a pre-test, informal assessment, to see where the kids were at.  I love any activity that gets my students moving and speaking about math.  I enjoy listening to their conversations, and seeing if they are using their math vocabulary to clarify and explain their thinking.  This activity provides a fun opportunity for students to do just that.  Take a look:

Mrs. Rios Teaches: Multiplication Around the Room Activity and Center

I just print, cut, and hang the station cards around the room.  I don't own a laminator, so I just dropped them into a plastic page protector until I can get to my local teacher store.


The kids had a great time moving around the room and writing the multiplication number sentence that was represented on each of the 20 station cards.  I plan to do a lot more of these type of activities after our CST test in May.  They will have a lot of energy to release after that, and activities like this might just save what is left of my sanity.  If you are interested, you can find this activity here in my Tpt store.
