I wanted to keep this week low-key and review some of the things we were working on before we jump into new units. I thought today would be the perfect time to bring out Multiplication Monsters:
This activity was so much fun! We had worked with these monsters way back when at the beginning of the year when we did Monster Math, but today we reviewed multiplication, arrays, and fact triangles.
There were 24 cards I laminated and scattered around the room. Kids had the answer sheet packet and worked to find the card, copy down the info given, then fill in the rest of the info.
There were five pages altogether, so kids didn't finish, but I plan on leaving these cards in our math center for them to finish during this week I also used winter-themed monsters in this packet (instead of the summer-themed ones found in the beginning of the year packet) and the kids loved them :)
I loved this way to help us get back into the swing of things, review some multiplication facts, get out of our seats for a while and move around the room.... all good things after two weeks off!
If you're interested, this packet is available in my TpT Store. I hope you are all enjoying your week and I'd love to hear how you get your kids back into the swing of things after a long break.
Have a great evening :)
