Closure Let them put away Fact catchers in their backpack and have 1 last exit ticket
question for them right before we leave the room.

Student - Have 2 Part pre made Fact catchers 1 for front example and 1 for coloring/
Accommodations fact writing.
- Let students see multiplication answers while creating Fact catcher just in
case they forgot or misplaced sheet.

Self Reflection  I will gauge my student’s needs (for time) as we experiment with the Fact
 I will observe if the students find this was of practicing multiplication facts
fun and effective
 Could this be used for older children in different subjects ( SS memorizing
