Teacher Web (featured left) had kids roll dice and create groups of stickers. Next, they created a multiplication problem from the groups they made.
For instance, kids rolled a 4 and a 6, so they created four groups of six (6 x 4 = 24). After they wrote out their multiplication problem, they could go back and check their work by counting all the stickers in the groups they made, adding them together.
(Note: Use 2 different colors for your dice, so kids don't get confused when making groups.)
