We are working on multiplication in class!

An array is a rectangular pattern of items arranged in columns and rows.

When we describe arrays, we write the number of columns first.

Therefore, this array would read 6 x 3!

Try the array activities posted here for additional practice.

A Game to Print and Try at Home: Racing Rectangles….click link below to print out the grid for playing.

Racing Rectangles is a game that can help reinforce arrays and multiplication.  Students, working in pairs, take turns rolling two dice.  Each student must choose a different colored marker or crayon to use.  The student outlines and fills in a rectangle that matches what they rolled.
For example, if the student rolled a 4 and 3, that student would fill in a 4×3 rectangle on the grid.  The player then writes the total number of squares inside the rectangle.
A player loses a turn when his or her rectangle cannot fit on the game board.  Play continues back and forth until neither player can’t draw a rectangle.
Students count up their total of squares they colored.
The winner is the one with the highest number of squares filled in.
Here is an example of what a game board might look like…

Here’s an online lesson explaining how multiplication and division are related.


We are currently working on identifying number patterns using a hundreds chart. These two activities online may help students review at home.




Students! In 2016, we will be focusing on word families with spelling dictations each week.

Please try out these interactive games:

This online activity is designed to help readers recognize word patterns and learn about onset and rime. Students are first asked to select a vowel, and are then presented with a series of words to sort into short-vowel word families. Students can then print their completed word family chart and use it to practice reading the words fluently.
