Tweet Arrays

I am back...breaking the double post rule a day . I could not wait to show you what my kids did this week!  It is very Tweet :)

We started with using many of the manipulatives we have in our classroom. Labeling row s and columns. Defining arrays (pre-assessment).
Created array books, used array task cards and took a few post-assessments....and so much more!

According to my kids an array is... (I copied these from their assessment sheets).
- Soldiers lined up in rows
- Organized ways of putting something away
- Something that is put together in rows and columns and it can help you count good
- Some rows and columns that are put together and help you count stuff
- A quick and organized of arranging something
- It has rows and columns and looks like an army of soldiers

I see a theme here....rows, columns and soldiers :)  Not sure what I said about soldiers, but it made a great impression.

Something so tweet!  Find here.
You can find all of these in there :)

What do you think? 

My tweet son will help me pick a winner. Leave me some love. I will pick 2 winners tomorrow night.

  1. This looks awesome! Our test book only has one lesson about arrays and they are SO important to understanding multiplication and how it works. Would love to have these for next year!

  18. I tell my students to imagine rows an columns as if they are sitting in a movie theater. The people next to them are in their ROW. The people sitting in front or behind them are in a column.

    This is a super-cute set! Thanks for offering a freebie!
