    I will use real/concrete items as we begin our unit on multiplication. Then, I will have students start working with base 10 blocks and manipulating them to demonstrate a stronger understanding of factors and products. Eventually, I hope that students will be able to just use numbers and steps to find answers. I love it when students are able to point out math connections when they see things. Examples: an egg carton with a dozen eggs, a dozen donuts in a box, our rows of desks in the classroom, the stars on the American flag.
