We have been working on double digit multiplication in math
using area models and the kids have a pretty god grasp of this, so it's time to
move on to using the standard algorithm.
In trying to make the transition, I made this anchor chart
based on one I found on Pinterest.
and created this foldable to show where the numbers
in the algorithm method come from.
On the inside of the foldable the kids stapled a copy of the anchor chart.
Hopefully, this will make the transition smoother.
What do you think?
Do you have any tried and true methods that work for you?
and finally, I am linking up with Farley over at
for the December Currently
So, What have you been up to?
