This printable booklet complements the Montessori Short Bead Chains and targets concepts of multiplication. Your students can complete this booklet alongside their work with the chains or as a separate extension activity. The file includes a full color answer key booklet so they can check their work independently.
Children are guaranteed to practice the following important lower-elementary math concepts as they work: 1) Skip-counting and its relationship to multiplication; 2) Repeated addition and its relationship to multiplication; 3) Arrays and the way in which they represent multiplication.
Preparing this booklet is just as easy as printing out a worksheet but way more fun for your students to complete. Simply print it double-sided, fold it in half, and staple the edge. Voila! You have a fun and engaging booklet for your learners.
