Multiplication Models

Multiplication Models

Modeling multiplication with pictures and charts can be helpful for some kids. If a child is struggling with a problem, try using a drawing to show them how to solve it.
Teaching students multiple multiplication strategies can help build their conceptual understanding. Many students don't understand why the standard algorithm works, so area models and partial products can help with getting to know the multiplication process.

Close Reading

It can be fun to tie in real-life facts and nonfiction texts to a fiction reading. If a child is reading a book about dinosaurs, for example, show them a dinosaur-related news article, Youtube clip, or fun fact to boost their learning.
One way to increase student engagement and understanding while they read novels is to make connections to nonfiction topics. Bring in news articles, Youtube clips, and more to help them understand the context of a novel.
