Multiplication Anchor Chart (plus free task cards!)
It's my final Anchors Away Monday post, as my InLinkz membership expires later this week, and I don't plan to renew it at this time. I'm such an anchor chart fanatic, though, that I anticipate sharing more anchor charts on my blog in the future. :) My final anchor chart focuses on the steps of multi-digit multiplication.
I came up with the acronym "Many Zoos... Many Animals" to assist students in remembering the steps in a two- or three-digit multiplication problem: multiply, zero, multiply, add. As you can see, I also color-code the steps. I would work through the problems on this anchor chart with students, so most of this anchor chart would be white prior to the beginning of class.
I created the following resources to aid in teaching this skill:
In keeping with the zoo theme, I created this FREE set of twelve task cards. Just click on the image to download!
