TeachTransform’s 4th Grade Multiplication develops the process of multi-digit multiplication through use of concrete and pictorial models, and scaffolded algorithms. With a focus on differentiation, activities include interchangeable templates with models to meet individual student needs.

Silly characters and contexts keep students interested and develop problem solving grit. For example, students model multiplication in Testing the Sparkle Box and A Strange Cast of Characters. And they use mental math to find patterns in multiplication.

For 2-digit by 1-digit multiplication, choose among stories with both a higher or lower number set and among templates tailored for different models, allowing all students to read the fun stories and to practice the models that meet them where they are.

4th Grade Multiplication includes activities for the whole class, small groups, centers, intervention, and guided math that build the academic language of the operations.

Each activity includes:

  • CCSS
  • Setting Up for Instruction
  • How-To Guide with full teacher directions including questions
  • Thought Extender Questions to help students get ‘unstuck’ and focus on the math concepts
  • Answer Key
  • Content explanations to deepen teacher understanding of fraction concepts
  • Instruction extras to support implementation of instructional strategies

Tutoring & Intervention

4th Grade Multiplication activities can be used for Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 instruction in 4th grade. The activities can also be used to catch 5th graders up and fill in gaps without loss of rigor or time. For example, for 5th graders struggling to understand the process of multi-digit multiplication, use Welcome to Elf Country or Rocky Road. For students who need more practice, use The Robot Assistant or Lucy Dynamic’s Invention. Are your 4th grade students having trouble remembering their facts? Back up to Section 2 in 3rd Grade Multiplication & Division for activities to practice each strategy. 

Instructional Alignment from Grades 3–5

Not only is the content aligned among the grades, but the instructional strategies are too. For students who are “growing up” with TeachTransform’s instructional materials, you can expect them, with a little prompting, to give an answer that includes a why, to use sentences to explain their thinking, to question each other in small groups. This lightens the instructional and cognitive load in each grade and leads to mastery.
