In this class, we will build each line of the multiplication table with some visuals, and then memorize and practice the facts by singing them on melodies from pop culture. While we sing, we will look at slides of arrays that use the characters from the songs we sing. I will demonstrate how to use the songs to answer multiplication problems and we will practice with the chat box to apply this skill. We will then take have two minutes of quiet focus time while we work on the "One Minute...
Students will be able to quickly answer single digit multiplication problems.
Most of my teaching background is in music, but I have also taught over 1,500 hours core curriculum based ESL classes. In addition, I work with Utah Opera Outreach program and work with grade school students to compose children's operas that reinforce science and social studies core curriculum.
A practice sheet will be given each week. Students should complete the sheet and write their time down each day (5x).
3 files available upon enrollmentIf we have time at the end of class, I will show the students how to make "Wall Quizzers." Students need the printed multiplication cards, scissors, tape, and one piece of cardstock or heavy paper.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
