I originally taught this lesson in first grade, but then used it in second and third grades as well. In third grade the book The Napping House became the context for a multiplication lesson. After graphing the little houses by the number of feet in each, I had my students help me figure out a multiplication problem to represent the row of houses with 8 feet. I explained that since there were 5 houses with 8 feet in each, we could write the multiplication sentence, 5 x 8 = 40 to describe how we might find the total in that row. Then I had students work with partners to find the totals for the other rows and then add those totals to find the total number of feet for all the houses. It was a great multiplication lesson! Hope you'll try it too!<br /><br />Stephanie SheffieldAnonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01257857226731038307noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4746027850336066537.post-2460336599223044432014-07-01T15:12:24.140-04:002014-07-01T15:12:24.140-04:00What a fantastic lesson!
