Students will be able to multiply up to the ten times table.
Students will be able to explain multiplication strategies and key terminology using peer supports.
Tell students that you are going to display images and you want them to think about what they are looking at. Explain that they will then discuss their observations with a partner before sharing with the whole group.
Display images of different multiplication strategies without numbers. For example, show skip counting as blank lines separated by commas in a sequence. Give students time to think to themselves.
Instruct students to turn and talk to a partner about what they noticed about the images. Listen for students to name the strategies and make the connection to multiplication. Call on volunteers to share what they discussed with their partner.
