There are many you tube videos on it. My husband and I experimented with it but I was fearful to show it to my kiddos because I could not get it to work with numbers that included a zero. I haven't tried your way with the colors though, that might help. Could you get it to work with zeros? Any advice to squish my fears of teaching the kiddos a more paper/time consuming way of multiplication?

You might be interested in a FREE site called Xtra Math that I've been using with my class all year... it is a quick daily drill of basic facts ( + - x and /) that you can program, and it tracks everything for you! My kids love it, and I've really seen progress!!<br /><br />Erin :)Erin Bhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12953921721733529970noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5202102119215739734.post-6519615439290824162013-01-17T16:35:37.041-05:002013-01-17T16:35:37.041-05:00How cool!

Instead of saying 6 in the hundreds for example..write 600. 19 tens would be plus 190 and then the 10 ones would actually be plus 10 to get your 800 in the first problem. It's like reinforcing the idea of the actual place value when you multiply the 2x3..(20x30) instead of just the h column with the 6.<br />Thank you for sharing!!! <br />Michele<br />Michelehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04674675143629781926noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5202102119215739734.post-30030285617697617362013-01-16T21:08:29.711-05:002013-01-16T21:08:29.711-05:00my guys are also seriously struggling with their f...my guys are also seriously struggling with their facts. it's so frustrating because it is so instrumental to every other concept (ie, the equivalent fractions we are working on right now!), but I can't spend days on end teaching facts. I understand the push towards a conceptual understanding of multiplication and division, but sometimes I wish we were still in age of drilling kids on their facts until they know them. :/Rachelhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/07074397899413441071noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5202102119215739734.post-10358355009388812752013-01-16T19:43:34.642-05:002013-01-16T19:43:34.642-05:00aaaahhhh, I get it!
