Lesson Plan Description

This half day of lesson plans is broken down into 3 separate segments (30-60 minutes each) addressing interpreting products: using groupings and arrays, repeated addition and skip counting (3.OA.A1). These lessons include: key math vocabulary, helpful student notes for reference, guided and independent practice of concepts, and a game to reinforce the concept of interpreting products using arrays.

  • Segment 1: students will recognize the relationship between multiplication and repeated addition and show products in multiplication as a multiplication equation matching “a” number of groups with “b” number of objects in each group.
  • Segment 2: students will recognize the relationship between multiplication and repeated addition and show products in multiplication as an array of rows and columns.
  • Segment 3: students will show products in multiplication as a multiplication equation matching “a” number of groups with “b” number of objects in each group and show products in multiplication as an array of rows and columns or an area model.

These lessons can be taught over the span of a half day or you can use the lessons independently, broken up over several days.
