Lay the foundation for multiplication by introducing your second graders to the concepts of skip counting and repeated addition. This lesson can be used alongside Up, Up, and Array, or separately to reinforce these important skills.
It's not enough to just memorize the multiplication table! It helps students to know how to explain their strategy to find the product too. Teach this lesson on its own or use it as support for the lesson Slap and Roll Timed Multiplication.
