3 x 2 digit multiplication

We began our day by warming up our brain.  I happened to come across a critical thinking activity that uses multiplication.  This activity was from:  Groundworks:  Reasoning about Numbers (Creative Publications, 2005).

Next, we had to do our estimation180.  At this point, I think the kids would revolt if we tried to skip it!

I gave a short pretest on 3 x 2 digit multiplication using a Kahoot and was extremely pleased with the results!  Therefore, we spent little to no time reviewing the process and completed six problems.

We used the last 30 minutes of class working on a Spiral Review to review specific skills.  As we learned in the beginning of the year, if we do these math skills a little every day, we grow our brain!  I found it on Teachers Pay Teachers.  It is specific to Texas TEKS for 5th graders.
