Multiplying by 9: A Tip You Won't Forget by The Teacher Treasury is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.
Based on a work at http://www.theteachertreasury.com/free-downloads/a-helpful-tip-to-remember-the-next-time-you-multiply-by-9-mini-poster.
Believe it or not, one of my 8th graders showed me this trick and it blew my mind!
Some of you may be thinking, this isn't a useful resource because it doesn't help the student understand the concept of multiplying by 9 and that's understandable. However, I've taught 4th and 5th grade special education and little tricks like these are a lifesaver and confidence booster when students encounter multiplication problems. I really hope you find this helpful too.

I gave this sheet to my students for homework at least twice a week. Every night my class was required to read for at least 30 minutes. I would often give them this 3 question worksheet to quickly assess their knowledge of their book. Keep in mind, several of my students were well below reading level and still reading picture books. This sheet works well with shorter books students can read in one sitting or I'm sure you can use introduce it once readers have completed a chapter book.
4 pages, 15 questions
Students are asked to solve word problems involving basic
addition, subtraction, multiplication and division skills.
Read each of the following math problems carefully.
Re-read the problem to make sure you understand.
Show your work and circle your final answer.
For this quick assessment, I included the definitions of maximum, minimum and median at the top to remind students of the difference. When teaching special education, I often provided students with just a little more information than usual to help them feel more confident about completing activities.
Now that you have read the story “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”, think about the author’s purpose of this non-fiction tale. Why do you think the author wrote this particular fable? What moral do you think the author wants readers to learn from this story? Why do you think nobody believed the boy at the end of the story? Use supporting details from the story to support your answer.
In your answer, be sure to:
Check your writing for correct spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation.
The story “The Three Little Pigs” is about a wolf who wants nothing more than to eat the three little pigs. Now, think about the wolf in “Little Red Riding Hood.” After thinking about the two characters, tell how the two wolves are alike. Afterwards, tell how they are different. Use supporting details from both stories to support your answer.
In your answer, be sure to

Rural Communities have: farms, animals, few people, lots of land, tractors, etc.
Suburban Communities have: lots of houses, few big buildings, less people than urban communities, etc.

This lesson requires students to round 2 - 5 digit numbers to the nearest Tens, Hundreds and Thousands Place.
Students are also asked to estimate the sum or 3 - 4 digit numbers.
The lesson also includes the following word problems which ask students to round their answers to the nearest Tens Place:
1. The students in Mr. Marshall’s class all have different reading books in their desks. Ahmad has 12, Jackie has 7, Michael has 5, Kendra has 11 and Patricia has 6. Estimate the number of books they have in total.
2. Sarah's father has a huge movie collection. She counted 5,458 movies. About how many movies would you say her father has if you round to the nearest tens place?
3. Mrs. King has 44 students in her class. She has more than any other teacher in the school. Ms. Black comes close with 39 students, but Mr. Anthony only has 27. Estimate the number of students in those three classes. Round your answer to the nearest tens place.
4. There are 365 days in a year. Estimate the number of days in the year to the nearest tens place.
This can either be used as a homework assignment, in-class practice, quiz or test.
Hope this helps =)

1 snack pack of M&M candies (per student)
My students ALWAYS love this lesson!
I've successfully completed this activity with 2nd, 4th and 5th grade classes.
This activity can be done in 8+ Steps.
The provided steps include:
Step 1: Before you open your bag of M&M candies, guess the total number of M&Ms in the package.
Step 2: Open your package and count the total number of M&Ms.
Step 3: What fraction represents the number of each color candy in your pack?
Step 4: Answer the following questions:
1. Which color M&M represents the largest fraction?
2. Which color M&M represents the smallest fraction?
Step 5: Eat one of each color M&M.
Step 6: What fraction represents the number of each color candy in your pack?
Step 7: Answer the following questions:
3. If you give 2 red M&Ms to your teacher, what fraction of your remaining M&Ms will be RED?
4. Write the fraction that represents the number of M&Ms that are
5. Which color M&M represents the largest fraction?
6. Which color M&M represents the smallest fraction?
Step 8: Eat all of your M&Ms.
For 2nd graders and SPED classes, the directions were always read aloud and we completed the entire activity together step by step.
With smaller 4th and 5th grade classes, I allowed students to complete the entire worksheet on their own as I would go around the room checking on their progress and understanding.
With larger classes, I would recommend having students pair up in groups of 2 to complete the assignment together. Each student should still receive their own pack of M&Ms and their own worksheet, but the following additional steps should be taken to ensure that all students understand the concept of fractions, numerators, denominators, etc.
--> Before students begin, instruct them to STOP and put their pencils down after STEP 3. Once all (or the majority) of the students have completed STEP 3, call on various students and ask them the following questions:
1. What fraction of your M&Ms are (color)? How do you know?
2. Does that color represent the numerator or the denominator?
3. What is a numerator?
4. What does the denominator represent?
5. Which color M&M represents the largest fraction? How do you know?
6. Which color M&M represents the smallest fraction? How do you know? (You could also ask another student: "Is he/she correct?"
Before allowing students to complete STEP 4, instruct them to answer the 2 question in STEP 4 and when finished do the following:
1. Put your pencil down, stand up and push in your chair
2. When both you and your partner have completed STEP 4 and are both standing with your chair pushed in, switch seats.
3. Sit down and DO NOT TOUCH your partner's M&Ms.
4. Review their answers in STEP 3 AND STEP 4 by looking at their group of M&Ms
5. Circle any incorrect answers.
6. When both you and your partner are finished reviewing STEP 3 & 4, discuss your incorrect answers. If you disagree on a fraction, raise your hand and ask the teacher to review the work.
7. When you have finished reviewing the answers, put your pencils down, stand up and return to your seat to complete STEPS 5-7.
After students have completed STEP 7, they should repeat the review process after STEP 4.
Finally, they can all eat their M&Ms.
Hope this helps =)

All of my students loved this game! I used it as our routine activity between lessons for grades 2-5. Once students get the hang of it, one round game can take less than 5 minutes.
Once a student yells "SCATTERGORIES", I would make everyone put their pencil down and that person would have to stand up and reveal their answers in each category to confirm their win.
I would often reward winners with stickers, treats and small prizes.
You can also use this game to spark dialogue within the classroom. Ask other students to confirm the people, places, songs, movies, books, authors, etc. mentioned by their classmates. If few students know very much about the given responses, it's a great opportunity for the student who selected that answer to teach his/her classmates about that particular person, place, object etc.
