I posted here about Multiplication Songs and Tricks from Ginger’s website Ginger Snaps. I love teaching math concepts – or any concept! – through song, chant, or rap.

Have you heard of Laura Candler? After teaching for 29 years, Ms. Candler created the Teaching Resources website and has a love for collaborating with teachers. She has resources for free and for sale, view her website here.

The second student listens and places cut-out number tiles in the correct positions. Both students compare place value strips and then switch roles.
