Everyone loves ice cream so what a fun way to engage your students as they learn the concept of multiplication! This fun filled, hands-on math pack will give your students 2 weeks of multiplication math centers. The focus of this unit is to introduce your students to the concept that the "times" symbol means "groups of." Students will complete activities where they match the multiplication sentence, groups of, pictures, and answers to make ice cream cones and sundaes.
I am not fan of loose sheets so I staple together a copy of the tracking sheet and a copy of all the worksheets together to make a booklet. I record any observations I make about the child and after marking their daily work I record how they did each day. This is a great way to give your students constructive daily feedback. At the end of the week I send the booklet home for the parents. They really appreciate being kept up-to-date on their child's progress and the booklets are a great review for the end of unit test. You can always keep the tracking sheet for documentation as well. Since this unit covers 2 weeks I have included a tracking sheet for each week.
