To begin this lesson, let’s look at the In Focus task. Can you think of all the ways to count the fish?
Yes we could count them all and we could count on from 4.
How about using multiplication to solve the problem?
Look, we have 3 groups of 4. How could this be helpful?
Can anyone count in fours? Let’s count together- 4, 8, 12
3 groups of 4 is written as 3 × 4 = 12.
Please write the equation for 2 groups of 4 and 1 group of 4.
Now look at the guided practice. We are using pictures to help you work out the answer?
Well done 👍5 groups of 4 or 5 x 4 = 20
