We have been using Miss Giraffe's Arrays Arrays Arrays!
We got a little punny and made Arrays of Sunshine.
I had students roll dice, the first number they rolled was the rows, the second the columns. They drew an array, wrote both repeated addition problems, and then the multiplication problems.
We watched brainpopjr. earlier in the week on arrays and repeated addition and made notes. I had students draw and cut out a large cloud on a white sheet of paper. From that they wrote a paragraph about arrays/multiplication on it.
Students had to do quite a bit of work and they turned out super cute!!!
You can get my outlines for the sun here!
