One of my favorite parts of being a third grade teacher is teaching multiplication.
Mainly because their excitement level is through the roof.
I created this resource to enhance our math curriculum.
Students brainstorm things that come in groups of different numbers:
2 – mittens, shoes, earrings, nostrils
3 – sides on a triangle, wheels on a tricycle
4- bases on a baseball field, vertices on a quadtrilateral
Then they use these lists to write and solve word problems.
Which I make into a bulletin board display and ultimately into a class book.
