About BMS Mental Routine Lesson Plans:
Learn about the whole Building Multiplicative Strategies package
This package gives the questions and lesson plans for six mental routines that will help you build your students’ ability with multiplicative strategies. Central to this process is helping students to acquire and use the language of multiplication and the package offers a word-wall that will help in this respect. The mental routine will enable you to observe:
- who is participating and who is not
- what strategies the students are using
- how confident students are with the strategies.
The material is also set within the context of an inquiry that will enable the teacher to show where the students started from and where they have reached in their exploration of multiplicative thinking.
The download for this product is a .zip compressed folder that contains 2 files.
When decompressed, the folder contains a .pdf file describing the 6 mental routines..
The Lesson Plan file is accompanied by Teacher Slides for use during the mental routines.
This download is intended for personal use and should not be shared with other teachers.
