Math Multiplication Activity

Math Multiplication Activity

The students learnt doing multiplication by a yet another strategy that is with the help of strips where in they were given stripes of 2 colours. Now for example the colour given was pink and green. Now if they have to calculate 2*3= 6 then hey had to place 2 strips of any one colour vertically which denoted that the calculation is for the table of 2 and now 3 horizontal strips were to be placed on it. Students had to now count the intersection points which led them to the answer 6. The same was done for the table of 3 and then randomly the equations were called upon. 4*6, 5*8 and so on….

Highlights of the day – 14th February.

Lang:
Read the story ” Berenstain bears get their kicks” and made a story book related to it. This was integrated with U.O.I and to what skills u need to play the game and how you should play the game, having no bias towards a particular game.

Math:
“Bangle activity” was done with the help of chanas to teach multiplication. Groups of 4-5 learners were formed. 10 bangles were given to each group. They had to put all the 10 bangles in pairs on the table and then put chanas in each bangle. E.g. 3 chanas in 1st bangle is 3, 3 chanas in 2nd bangle makes 6, 3 chanas in 3rd bangle makes 9 and so on. This was one another way they learnt multiplication.

Homework:
Complete the story book with the cover page and learn the new spelling.

UOI:  Alphabets were written on the floor randomly in a matrix square. Students were grouped in 3 to 4 teams and in the first round teams were given time to make words from the alphabets written on the floor. In the second round students had to show the words that they made by jumping the blocks of letters on the floor in a given time limit.

The learners played this game in pairs. One participant tied a cloth on eyes and the other participant guided the blind partner towards the cat drawn on the white board and thus by cooperating with each other have to tail the cat. Students also wrote down self reflection on the same.
