My students have been working REALLY hard on learning their multiplication facts. I know I had posted recently about the multiplication chart in my classroom and the word wall that we use, but this post will go along with that theme. Every day for HW my class studied and practiced their multiplication facts using a log, just like a reading log. In class we took speed tests, quizzed each other on flashcards and used fact triangles. I have 30 students in my class and I am SO HAPPY to say that ALL 30 passed and mastered their facts from 0-10. In honor of this accomplishment, we had MATH DAY!!!
For math day, we started with a bagel breakfast, followed by sharing our math projects and watching a movie.
Our math project was to create and wear a t-shirt with a self-made multiplication problem on the front and the equation on the back. The kids had a blast making these shirts and quizzing each other.
