Practical/ drawing activity:
Children make or draw arrays,
Step 1: Pick two 1-digit number. E.G. 4 and 3
Step 2: Make or draw the array to show this (the children could use counters, small balls/ toys, objects they have) - Make an array to show 4 lots of 3.
Step 3: Write the multiplication sentence - 4x3 = 12
If the children make arrays and you get an opportunity too, please send over a picture.
