Multiplying x3

Today we worked on multiplying by 3 using our number lines that we created last week.  My students loved using their colorful number lines to solve math facts.  After a 4 long days of testing, this cutting and pasting activity was just what they needed! 

My class talks. They can talk a lot. When they talk, they usually stop working.  So today, instead of mindlessly cutting and pasting (which can lead to a lot of talking) I called out their names and they had to say the fact they were cutting or pasting.  Everyone finished!  Some of my slowest workers even finished first. 

Look at this pretty number line.  This student is very creative!  She was saying the facts in her head as she colored them. :)
