Whether you are new to digital classrooms, or have been using them for a while, these back-to-school multiplication strategies activities for in person or digital classrooms are just what you need to be prepared for the back-to-school season. Especially for those teachers that are required to do distance learning.

If you'd like to skip the article and just buy the  Multiplication Strategies Bundle, that's cool. It comes with the task cards seen below, plus a multiplication strategies flip book for reference.

Multiplication Facts Task Cards

The multiplication facts task cards cover facts 1-10 or 1-12, depending on each school's curriculum. Each task card is separated into factors and students will write or type the answer to the multiplication sentences in two ways. This reinforces the commutative property of multiplication.

I hate it when I invest in something and later feel like what I purchased was not worth what I paid.

Alternately, I love it when I can provide teachers and homeschool parents with quality resources that they can utilize.

For that reason, I compiled a free resource containing ONE task card out of every task card in my MEGA bundle. That way, teachers can try the resource before they make an investment.
