Arrays are one way to start learning multiplication. You learn about columns and rows and how that works into the equations.
We have been doing some starting of multiplication at our house and I thought it would be fun to have something new for it!
Today I have a baseball-themed array task cards with matching worksheets.
This is printable is a part of the Baseball Themed Week.
A lot of time we want something quick and easy to work in a math center. We don’t want to have to fuss with tons of changes and not a lot of work put it together.
These cards and matching worksheets are great for that.
There are 12 baseball themed array task cards. They have numbers 1 to 12 on them to match up to the worksheets. I recommend laminating the cards to help them last longer.
The first worksheet has you write an equation two ways. You look at the task cards and write the equations like 2×5=10 and 5×2=10. This works well for those that already know about arrays or just need a quick review.
The second worksheet has you write in rows and columns. This allows them to see that either way the answers are the same.
The third worksheet has you write in 4 things to work on learning rows and columns. You find out how many in the rows and columns then you answer equations question based on columns and rows. This gives them a good idea of how they are grouping things together.
What you will find in these printables:
- 12 baseball themed array cards with numbers 1 to 12 on them
- 3 worksheets that ask for information based on the arrays
- 7 pages of printables
