Balancing concrete (manipulatives) & abstract thinking skills  (pencil and paper) can be quite difficult in the elementary classroom. Not everyone is at the same stage, which is why math centers and teacher small groups lessons are the best type of math instruction. However, what is "terrific" in this world and what you can ACTUALLY fit into your schedule are two different things! :)

These task cards can help you!

Lesson Idea for Teaching the Associative Property of Multiplication: Using white boards and five students, have them stand at the board. Give three students one number each. For example, 5 3 and 2. Then have one student be opening parenthesis and the last student be the closing parenthesis. Have an "audience" classmate arrange them, with guidance if needed, to organize the students into a problem. (3 x 2) x 5= then have them select a student to answer the parenthesis part first and stand with their white board saying 6. Have a new student solve the last step of the problem, 6 x 5= 30. 

Next, involve another student to rearrange the problem and parenthesis. Continue to call students up to the front with their whiteboards until it has been solved each time. After three to four rearrangements, you can then discuss with everyone that Ah-ha moment that no mater what, it is always 30.

Extend the Lesson:
To continue with the skill on a higher level, use the task cards to find the unknown factor. For example...(4 x __) x 2=40.

Common Core State Standards 3.OA.B.5
Apply properties of operations as strategies to multiply and divide. Examples: If 6 × 4 = 24 is known, then 4 × 6 = 24 is also known. (Commutative property of multiplication.) 3 × 5 × 2 can be found by 3 × 5 = 15, then 15 × 2 = 30, or by 5 × 2 = 10, then 3 × 10 = 30. (Associative property of multiplication.) Knowing that 8 × 5 = 40 and 8 × 2 = 16, one can find 8 × 7 as 8 × (5 + 2) = (8 × 5) + (8 × 2) = 40 + 16 = 56. (Distributive property.)
