Lesson 1
2 & 5x Using Doubles and Skip Counting
In this first lesson we will start with doubles addition to work on 2x facts, as well as skip counting by 5's for 5x facts. We will also go over the foundational multiplication concepts of repeated addition and groups. We will practice these facts with a game of multiplication BINGO.

Lesson 3
Skip Counting by 10's & 11x
In this lesson, we will start with a quick review of 2 and 5x multiplication facts. We will then move on to use the same skip counting strategy to practice 10x facts and then 11x, by adding one more group. We will review these facts with a game of Snakes & Ladders, where students will be asked a multiplication fact before each turn.

Lesson 5
3 & 6x Strategies
In this lesson, we will begin by review all of the facts we've learned so far with a quick fact retrieval exercise. We will then introduce 3x and 6x by using the known 2x and 5x facts and then to add one more group. This will take some practice, which we will do using our multiplication BINGO game.

Lesson 11
7 & 8x Mnemonic Device Strategies

Lesson 12
Review
This lesson will be additional practice and review of the last lesson.
Students will become fluent in single digit multiplication facts.
This is an area that I had difficulty with as a child, and I really wish someone had used this approach with me. I have had much success with students who thought they would never master their multiplication facts. This approach is especially helpful for students who have a learning disability in math, or a language learning disability such as dyslexia which effects this area of math.
This class is suitable to all learners, but will specifically support learners who have a learning disability in math (dyscalculia), and have been unsuccessful in mastering multiplication fact fluency.
- deck of playing cards
