Just a quick post tonight.  Assessments don’t have to be long and stressful.  They don’t have to include multiple choice answers.  They don’t even have to take tons of planning.  They only have to assess whether or not the kiddos mastered the learning objectives.  Here’s an assessment my 3rd grade teachers wanted for the different representations for multiplication.

    Thanks Donna – This is exactly what I needed for my 5th and 6th grade remedial math students. They are really struggling with seeing a fraction in multiple ways. This put it all in one place for them without having to create it myself 🙂 Thanks for being awesome!!

    Thank you! Some of my 5th graders still struggle with this, and I can see extending it to decimal and fraction multiplication as well.

    Dumb question: Do they right all of this out themselves or do I do part of it. I am a fairly new homeschool Mom & I am trying to find ways to see if my daughter is understanding the concept of multiplication.
    Thank you,

      Not a dumb question at all! This activity was designed to be an assessment, so it assumes the kiddos have worked with manipulatives and models leading up to this.

    Hi, I’ve been looking through your blog and finding things to print off – this is one I’m printing to save for the end of the year – hoping we’ll get to a little multiplication by the end of 2nd grade. Thanks for sharing! Sara
