    I love how it gives you ways to build the background, activities, and movies that can be shown at the same time. These lesson plans and resources for home connections is a great way to get parents involved!

    Oh wow, this Educators site is the best!! I checked out the lessons on Arrays. At first, I went to the link called “Arrays Activities for Kids.” They had 4 Hands on activities that would work well in the classroom or as a home assignment. The activities seemed easy to implement and would promote student engagement.
    I also went to the “Arrays Background Information for Teachers and Kids.” This section had some really good information explaining how arrays are important to help learn multiplication. I plan on getting this information in the hands of my parents.

    • Great, Nita! So happy you’re finding the resources helpful!
