Common Core Aligned Multiplication Lapbook (Giveaway)

We started our unit on multiplication last week.  Having started the year by completing almost 2 weeks of reviewing multiplication facts, I thought this would be a breeze.

However, after spending every waking moment reading over the stinkin' lovely Common Core standards, I realized that just knowing the facts weren't enough.

Honestly, I knew that.  Really I did.  But, I figured 4th graders came to me knowing how multiplication works.

Um, wrong.

So, I created this lapbook to help us understand multiplication.  



Common Core Mumbo Jumbo to follow...scroll down if bored.


4th Grade Common Core Standards Addressed:
4.OA.1- Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison
4.OA.2- Multiply to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparisons
4.OA.4- Find all factor pairs for whole numbers 1-100.
4.NBT.5- Multiply whole numbers

3rd Grade Common Core is addressed, too:
3.OA.1, 3 OA.3, 3 OA.4, 3 OA.5. 3 OA.7, 3 NBT.3 (Basically the same as above...but more).  

I'm having my students create the foldables in their notebooks, though, instead of creating the lapbook.  Also included are some options if you are short on copies (like me).

I'm also working on some task cards for 4.OA.1~Interpreting a multiplication equation as a comparison.  I'm going to use those in my math tubs next week.  

If you are interested in the lapbook, I have it for sale in my TPT store for $4.  

However, (and this is for those of you who scrolled down....hope you figured out where to pick up reading)....

I'm going to give away 5 copies.  I will pick using the random generator on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. EST. 

Here's how you can win:

1) Pin the item
2) Make a comment telling me that you pinned it.

That's it.

On your mark, get set, go!

Oh, and thanks for pinning....much appreciated!

**Update**

Winners have been chosen.  Thanks for pinning!
