Mathematical Mondays: Multiplying with Decimals

My fifth graders have been working on multi-digit multiplication with decimals for many weeks.  Some of my students are continuing to struggle with this concept for various reasons.  Some students do not know their facts, others are having troubles with the multi-digit multiplication process, some make addition mistakes and others are just careless.  I am planning to spend one more week going over this and decided to make some centers.

I was searching on Pinterest and came across this anchor chart which led me to Teaching with a Mountain View.  (I am making this chart to go over with my two classes)
When I got to her blog I remembered that I had bought this bundle at the very beginning of the school year.  Not only is it perfect for this week, but I already bought it!!!!  Lucklily I have new ink and pack of laminating pouches.
I will be pulling small groups this week while they work on centers and task cards.  I will see three groups each period. 

Here is a video that I watched to help explain a strategy to share with my students.

I found a great website that allows you to create free worksheets,  I like the graph paper on the bottom.  It has many editing options.
