Building an Understanding of Multiplication 3rd Grade Math Lesson Plans TEKS: 3.4D, 3.4E, 3.4F, 3.4K, 3.5B, 3.5C, 3.6C

Building an Understanding of Multiplication. These plans are for 12 days of instruction. In this unit, students represent multiplication facts through the use of context. The models for this unit include objects, pictorial, area models, equal groups, arrays, strip diagrams, and equations. Students use the properties of multiplication to solve one step problems. Basic fact strategies- doubles, doubles plus one, double doubles, 5's, 10's and 9 are taught. This unit prepares students for division!

I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress. There are 17 skills in this unit! A student data sheet is included for students to reflect on their own learning for the unit. A teacher tracking sheet is included to make small group instruction easier!

Each day contains objective, learning targets, materials, whole class teaching activity, guided math activity and closure with an exit ticket and answer key for most days.

Whole Class teaching in this unit contains:

  • KWL
  • Word Splash
  • Math Huddle (Math Talk)
  • Mini Lessons
    • Connection
    • Teaching Point
    • Active Engagement
    • Link to Ongoing Learning



Games in this unit include:

  • Fact Pictionary
  • SCOOT: Make an Area Model
  • SCOOT :Extension
  • Find the Area
  • Beat the Teacher
  • Multiplication Puzzles

This unit is designed to print and go! I keep mine in a binder. You can put each day and all of the materials for that day in one sheet protector.

I hope this unit helps you with Guided Math by providing a whole class teach, active engagement, guided math activities and exit tickets for almost everyday- you can't beat $1.25 per day for a complete unit!
