So out with the old...
...and in with the new!!!
WHAT was I thinking with that first one, right?!?
I also updated the Array Cards:
The Array Cards Pack has the cards for multiplication facts 1-12.
The Activities for Array Cards Pack includes 8 task card activities for students to do independently, in small group, or whole group.
And I now have a discounted pack with BOTH products!!
So, what is special about these products?? Well, there is ample research (and a little bit of common sense!) to support that fact fluency helps students be more proficient in other areas of math. They aren't having to focus on "what's this fact" when they are completing an algorithm (such as long division). Ya know, it just makes sense to have the kids know their facts! Period! ;)
Array cards are wonderful little visuals to support the students' learning of multiplication facts. Each card has the dimensions on the front and the total area on the back:
We all know how important visuals are, especially if students still do not have a concrete understanding of numbers. Students will not only see the fact with its product, BUT they will see how much the product is. They will see the arrangement of the number of squares that make up the product. They will see and compare the area to other arrays. Students will be able to see and hold a visual representation of each fact (1-12) in their hands. And for students struggling with fact fluency and/or spatial representation, this will be a powerful tool in their hands! So play a game with them, match them, have a discussion about them--there are many possibilities and much to be learned.
