Arrays and repeated addition with cereal makes such a fun small groups lesson or math center in 2nd grade or 3rd grade to introduce students to multiplication… they make rectangular arrays with cereal then either write a multiplication equation or repeated addition equation to represent their picture
Haley Gayoski. Due Date 11-18-18. This is a cute idea to do as a bell ringer or an exit slip to assess students' knowledge of addition. Each student will create a different equation and will not be able to copy off of another student so it serves as a fair assessment. A classroom management tip would be to reuse these to practice both addition and subtraction.
This has been such a fun Center. I could see their little brains working and their problem solving skills emerging today, as they worked with the pentominoes to strategically fill the empty space. So many concepts can be explored here: spatial reasoning, number, shape, and area. #earlynumeracy #playbasedlearning #reggioinspired #reggioemiliaapproach #reggioteachers #kindergarten
