Grade Level – 3

Content:

    Multiplication Facts – “The Fours”

Benchmarks:

    Math Standard N.FL.03.11:

    • Find products fluently up to 10 x 10.
    • Find related quotients using multiplication and division relationships.

Learning Resources and Materials:

    • Multiplication flashcards for reference
    • Kidspiration software for recording and images

Development of Lesson:

      Introduction:
      1. Students will be divided up into ten groups and assigned a corresponding number 1-10.
      2. Each group will then write a two line “rap” about their number multiplied by four.
        (e.g. ” Four times two equals eight. This class sure is great! “)
      3. We will then compile these mini-raps into one classroom rap.
      4. The students will rehearse until they have memorized each multiplication fact of four .
      5. The class will perform their creation and record it on Kidspiration.
      6. Teacher will later pair the performance with graphics of the facts and create a fun video for the students.

      Methods/Procedures:

      • This lesson follows previous instruction on multiplication facts and the facts of four will be reviewed beforehand.
      • The students will be placed in groups based on their learning styles. Their learning style was determined previously through a learning style quiz. Students with intrapersonal, musical, etc. learning styles will be separated to ensure greatest effectiveness in each group.

      Accommodations/Adaptations:

        If any child with special needs is not be able to work well in groups with other children, the teacher should help them personally to create their own “rap”.

      Assessment/Evaluation:

        After our classroom rap is created and learned by all, there will be a test on the multiplication facts of four. The students’ scores on this test will demonstrate the success of this learning activity.

    Closure:

      As a class, we will reflect on the test scores. If this is a successful lesson, I will consider incorporating music into other lessons to help reinforce various topics.

Teacher Reflection:
