This unit is about multiplication of whole numbers. Students will learn strategies using properties of multiplication, arrays and area models as well as the standard algorithm. They will represent and solve multi-step problems using strip diagrams and equations. They will also practice rounding skills.
I have broken down each TEK into Learning Targets to make it easier to track student progress and make working in a PLC easier. There are 14 skills in this unit! Each learning target contains intervention and enrichment skills. 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. You can use the Learning Targets to get ideas on Intervention and Enrichment skills.
Whole Class teaching in this unit contains:
- Mini Lessons
- Teaching Point
- Active Engagement
- Link to Ongoing Learning
Games and Engagement Activities in this unit include:
- Scavenger Hunt for 2 Digit x 2 Digit with Partial Products
- Mirror- Properties of Multiplication and Area Models
- Partner A/B Activity for using the Standard Algorithm
- Matching- Equation, Strip Diagram, Word Problem and Solution
- Ghost in the Graveyard- Representing Multi-Step Problems with Strip Diagrams and Equations
- SCOOT- Rounding to the Common Place Value
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!
