HowLongHowManyGame

How Long, How Many:  One way to play this game is after you place the rod rectangles on the paper, such as 4 of the sixes (dark greens), you can trace the rectangles and label them (4 of 6, or 4 x 6).

    I saw this on Pinterest and thought it would be a great way to teach him his multiplications. He is in the 4th grade and like any other child doesn’t like to sit still long enough to study, I feel putting this into a game was a great idea.

      It’s a fun game. I got the idea from Marilyn Burns, a delightful mathematics educator. She has written a wide array of books offering many engaging activities that children enjoy.
