Our focus in math workshop this week has been on representing multiplication in various ways—repeated addition, arrays, groups, etc. I introduced this concept by having the kiddos watch a couple videos at home along with doing some example problems (since I’ve been flipping my classroom in math). They used Kidspiration to help them visualize multiplication using groups.
Today the kids worked in groups to make posters that represented particular multiplication facts in various ways using Lita Lita’s adorable Halloween clipart.
They also had a chance to complete a Spooky Array QR Code Scavenger Hunt, which is a new freebie in my TpT store. This one follows the same format as all of my other QR code scavenger hunts. Students find the "Start" phone and scan the QR code to reveal the first multiplication fact. They must then find the phone that displays the corresponding array. Each QR code leads them to the next phone until they complete the scavenger hunt.
Later this month we'll be using my Halloween Multi-digit Addition and Subtraction with Regrouping Freebie as well as my Witch's Hat Fact Family Center.
