## MOnster Math

Temple University Lesson Plan

Subject Area: Math Grade Level: 3rd

Concept/Topic: Multiplication Time: 1 one-hour class period

Lesson Background:

a. Students need to know how to multiply to complete knowledge of basic skills. In order to learn multiplication, students must understand addition and subtraction.

b. The teacher must be aware of current student math knowledge. The teacher must also know how to break down multiplication into addition in order to explain it to students.

Curriculum Standards:

CC.2.2.3.A.1 - Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and division9.1.3.B - Recognize, know, use, and demonstrate a variety of appropriate arts elements and principles to produce, review and revise original works in the arts.

Objectives:

SWBAT complete multiplication problems using the Monster Mash Dance

SWBAT use the Monster Mash Dance moves to understand the concept of multiplication

Materials and Technology:

Teacher Materials: Monster Mash dance video; white board; markers

Student Materials: Monster Mash dance video; multiplication worksheet.

Step-By-Step Procedure:

1.

a. I will show students the Monster Mash Dance Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ8DOL-KeWw) and have them particpate in the dance at the end. I will tell them to count how many sets of the "Mummy Walk" there are and to count how many mummy arm moves are in each set. I will write their answer on the white board in the form of "2 sets of 8".

2.

a.

b.

c.

Students will be assessed by how many problems they complete correctly on the worksheet

Write the multiplication problems out as addition on the worksheet next to the multiplication problem. 4x2= 4 sets of 2, or 2+2+2+2 = 8.

__Procedure (LEARNING PLAN)__**:**Materials and Technology:

Teacher Materials: Monster Mash dance video; white board; markers

Student Materials: Monster Mash dance video; multiplication worksheet.

Step-By-Step Procedure:

1.

**Engagement/Introduction**:a. I will show students the Monster Mash Dance Video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJ8DOL-KeWw) and have them particpate in the dance at the end. I will tell them to count how many sets of the "Mummy Walk" there are and to count how many mummy arm moves are in each set. I will write their answer on the white board in the form of "2 sets of 8".

2.

**Exploration/Explicit Instruction with Modeling and Guided Practice**:a.

**Explicit Instruction**: I will draw 2 sets of 8 on the white board using tally marks and explain that 2 sets of 8 the same at 2x8, which when we count out the tally marks equals 16. So there were 16 mummy arm moves in the video. I will explain that we can multiply using addition. Two sets of 8 is also 8+8 = 16. Three sets of 8, or 8x3 would be 8+8+8 = 24, and so on.b.

**Modeling**: I will model the concept to learners by doing this procedure with two more dance moves from the video. I will dance the moves to help me count them.c.

**Guided Practice:**Students will watch the video, do the dance moves and fill out a multiplication worksheet that contains a problem for each dance move in the video. For example, 4 sets of 2 howls is 4x2 = ? .__Evaluation:____Attachments:__Students will be assessed by how many problems they complete correctly on the worksheet
