3rd Grade Math Lesson Plans Building an Understanding of Multiplication 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.

KWLWord Splash
Math Huddle (Math Talk)
Mini Lessons (Connection, Teaching Point, Active Engagement and Link to Ongoing Learning)
