### Google Slides Multipilcation Game

Important for all 3rd graders, multiplication is a gateway to higher math. WIth this self-checking Google Slides game, students practice multiplication facts with equal groups, arrays, and number lines as well as solving real-world word problems. This activity has 25 problems that also have some practice with the Properties of Multiplication. Great for distance or hybrid learning situations. Discover and learn more! #twoboyadndadad

### Teaching Multiplication during Distance Learning

Teach the concept of multiplication virtually using a document camera, software and Zoom (or Google Meets). See how using everyday objects like beans and cups can visually show the concepts of equal groups and arrays. Use virtual tools to show multiplication on a number line. Even with distance learning, 3rd graders can learn how to multiply when the teacher uses visual models. Discover and learn more about teaching multiplication on my blog! #twoboysandadad

### Doubling and Halving Strategy for Multiplication Fluency

Multiplication fluency does not have to be elusive! Sure, students need to practice, memorize and understand the multiplication facts. But that doesn't always achieve fluency with the facts. You also need to teach students multiplication strategies such as adding a group. The multiplication strategies help students when they just can't recall or remember the facts. Discover and learn more about how to teach these strategies! #twoboysandadad

### Practice the Multiplication Facts

Print out these color or black and white versions of these game boards for students to practice the multiplication tables 2 through 12. This is a fun game in which students practice the multiplication facts with arrays, equal groups, skip counting, or any other strategy. This activity can be done remotely using a document camera or played independently at home. Game boards are available in 5 different themes. Discover and learn more! #twoboysandadad

### Fun Multiplication Practice for Third Grade

Print out these color or black and white versions of these game boards for students to practice the multiplication tables 2 through 12. This is a fun game in which students practice the multiplication facts with arrays, equal groups, skip counting, or any other strategy.

### 3 Tried and True Ways on How to Teach Multiplication

Teaching multiplication in third grade builds on second grade practice with repeated addtion by using an array. Arrays, equal groups and number lines are my prefered visuals for developing conceptual understanding of multiplication. This animated PowerPoint uses all three strategies for multiplying. Students make connections across all three strategies. They follow along with the printables and show their thinking about multipication. Discover and learn more about multiplicaiton…

### Learning Multiplication is More than Memorization!

Teaching multiplication in third grade should be planned over the entire year. Sure, we initially teach the concept, use hands-on activities to problem solve and then practice. But, how do we get students to multiplication fluency? That involves teaching strategies, memorization, practice, games, learning the properties of multiplication and even homework. Learn more about my year long plan for helping students learn multiplication and achieve fluency. #twoboysandadad

### Doubling and Halving Strategy for Multiplication Fluency

Multiplication fluency does not have to be elusive! Sure, students need to practice, memorize and understand the multiplication facts. But that doesn't always achieve fluency with the facts. You also need to teach students multiplication strategies such as using the distributive property. The multiplication strategies help students when they just can't recall or remember the facts.

### Distributive Property of Multiplication - Tips and Ideas

When you're third graders are starting to learn about the Distributive Property of Multiplication, is it rough going? It's a difficult concept to teach as well as learn. But I have found activities and approaches that help conceptual understanding that builds to procedural fluency with this multiplication property.
