Teach multiplication & division with this *FREEBIE*

So I just created this new multiplication & division mini-packet that introduces the concepts of multiplying and dividing.  Please keep in mind that this packet does not teach long division or multi-digit multiplication.  It is, however, a great tool for showing students that multiplication is simply repeated addition and division is repeated subtraction.  I used this division trick with my second graders last year and they absolutely loved it.  Also, it helped them to see how division is related to multiplication and subtraction.  Just for being my awesome readers, you get a free sample of the packet:
This packet aligns with the following Common Core standards:
2.NBT.A.3, 2.NBT.A.4, 3.OA.A.1, 3.OA.A.2, 3.OA.A.3, 3.OA.A.4, 3.OA.B.5, 3.OA.B.6, 4.OA.A.1

For the entire packet, click here.  If you don't already have a Teachers Pay Teachers account, sign up for one here:   It's a great way to get other free printables, and even to start generating your own income.

Thanks for following!
