**We decomposed frations and wrote them as multiplication expressions.**

__Lesson 1__Ex: 2/5= 1/5 + 1/5...decompose the fraction first. Ask the question...How many 5ths are there? Answer 2, therefore 2/5 is the same as 2 x 1/5.

**We wrote whole numbers as fractions and explained the concept of why it works with division. Students rewrote problems and then proceeded to multiply.**

__Lesson 2__Ex. 3 x 1/4 = 3/1 x 1/4

3/1 is the same as 3 divided by 1 = 3

I showed models as well.

Students solved several problems in which they rewrote the whole number as a fraction and multiplied to solve the equation.

**We created multiplication expressions to model multiples.**

__Lesson 3__Ex: 2 x 3 = 6 x 1 therefore

2 x 3/4 = 6 x 1/4

__We created models of multiplication sentences.__

**Lesson****4**__We practiced the multiplication algorithm.__

**Lesson 5**__We practiced word problems.__

**Lesson 6**Centers-I created flash cards with multiplication problems that students can solve. They also were required to create their own story problems using the cards and how to model the problems. They also created screen chomp videos that showed if they understood what they needed to do to solve these types of problems.

I will post my anchor posters when I have time. I hope this helps for those that are struggling with CCSS.
