We started our daily tournaments between monsters using our multiplication skills. The children love this and always root for the monster they hope wins with the largest product.
So far we have had 10 tournaments and the children are getting faster and faster at solving the problems.
We are also learning skip count songs for each multiple using an amazing series of songs and scripts. The children are using two wonderful multiplication apps called Sushi Monster and Multiplication Math Matthews App on their iPads. Once a week we take a timed multiples test and they are improving. Although many need the multiplication chart . Those 6s, 7s, 8s, and 9s!! Whew!
In small math groups, we continue to work on the multiplication algorithms and practice skip counting & solving problems using our multiplication skills.
