PRESENTATION  TEACHER’S ACTIVITY  PUPIL’S ACTIVITY 
STEP 1 MENTAL MATHS  The teacher begins the lesson with some mental calculations Calclate 1 2 + 2 + 2 = 2 5 + 5 = 3 4 + 4 + 4+ 4+ 4 = 4 3 + 3 + 3 = 5 2 + 2 + 2 + 2+ 2 + 2 = 6 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 7 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 8 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 9 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 10 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 + 5 =  Pupils respond and participate 
STEP 2 CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT  The teacher • Writes the following word problem on the board. Tacha has 5 apples. Janice has 2 times as many apples as Tacha. How many apples does Jabu have? • Reads the problem. • Asks: What is the story about? (apples) • Asks: What numbers do you see in the story? (5 and 2) • Underlines these numbers. • Asks: What is the question? (How many apples does Janice have?) • Underlines the question with a wavy line. • Lets the learners read the problem until they read it fluently. • Draws the diagram as follows. • Explains: When you say 2 times as many, it means if Tacha has 1 group of 5 apples then Janice has 2 groups of 5 apples. • Asks: How do we write the number sentence for Janice’s apples? (2 × 5 = 10, 10 apples.) Why? (Because Janice has 2 groups of 5 apples.) • Lets the learners draw the diagram and write the number sentence with its answer in their classwork books. • Lets a learner write his/her multiplication number sentence on the board for correction.
CLASS ACTIVITY The teacher • Writes the following word problem on the board.
I have a 4 m piece of string. How long would the string be if it was 3 times longer?
• Reads the problem. • Asks: What is the story about? (String) • Asks: What numbers do you see in the story? (4 and 3) • Underlines these numbers. • Asks: What is the question? (How long would the string be if it was 3 times longer?) • Underlines the question with a wavy line. • Lets the learners read the problem until they read it fluently. • Draws the diagram shown below on the board. • Asks: How do we write a number sentence for this story? (3 × 4 = __) Why? (Because there are 3 groups of 4 circles). • Learners solve the problem. Let the learners write the number sentence with the answer in their classwork books. (3 × 4 = 12, 12m) • Lets a learner write his/her multiplication number sentence on the board for correction. If some learners still write the number sentence as repeated addition, let them write the multiplication number sentence under the repeated addition. Gradually they need to shift from repeated addition to multiplication.
 Pupils pay attention and participate 
STEP 3 CLASSWORK  Draw a diagram to calculate the answer. 1 What is 4 times 5? _____ 2 What is 3 times 4? _____ 3 What is 6 times 3? _____ 4 What is 8 times 2? _____ 5 What is 7 times 5? _____ 6 What is 9 times 4? _____
 Pupils attempt their class work 
STEP 4 HOMEWORK  Draw a diagram to calculate the answer. 1 What is 5 times 3? ______ 2 What is 7 times 2? ______
 The pupils writes it in their homework book 
STEP 5 SUMMARY  The teacher summarizes by reminding the pupils that in this lesson we have learnt to multiply using number sentences.
She marks their class works, makes corrections where necessary and commends them positively 

PERIOD 3: 5 times table
PRESENTATION  TEACHER’S ACTIVITY  PUPIL’S ACTIVITY  
STEP 1 MENTAL MATHS  The teacher begins the lesson with some mental calculations Count forwards and backwards in 5s up to 50.  Pupils respond and participate  
STEP 2 CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT  The teacher • Writes the word problem on the board.
There are 5 balls in a bag. How many balls are there in 1 bag?
• Reads the story several times. First read it quite slowly but then read it using a normal speed of reading. • Draws the diagram below on the board while learners place 5 bottle tops horizontally across their desks. • Asks: How can we write the multiplication sentence for this drawing? (1 × 5 = 5) Why? (Because there is 1 group of 5 bottle tops.) How many balls are there? (5 balls) • Lets the learners draw 5 circles in a horizontal line and write the multiplication number sentence 1 × 5 = 5 next to the drawing in their classwork books. • Says: This is 1 times 5, writing 1 × 5 = 5 next to the drawing on the board. • Continues this activity with 2 bags, 3 bags, and 4 bags. • Draws the diagrams underneath each other and write the number sentence next to the drawing each time. • Lets the learners read the number sentence every time and draw the same diagram and writes the multiplication number sentence in their classwork books.
CLASS ACTIVITY The teacher • Asks some learners to come to the board to complete the 5 times table up to 10 times 5, following the diagram in Activity 1. 5 × 5 = 25, 6 × 5 = 30 until you get to 10 × 5 = 50. • Once all the number sentences are written on the board, asks: Do you notice anything about the answers to these number sentences? (They end in 0 or 5, the answers increase by 5 each time). • Says: We have found a pattern in the five times table. • Lets the learners continue to complete the 5 times table by drawing in their classwork books.  Pupils pay attention and participate  
STEP 3 CLASSWORK  NOTE: Learners may use bottle tops to help them do this activity.
The Grade 2 class is going to the zoo. Each car can take 5 children. How many children can go to the zoo each time?
Complete the table.
 Pupils attempt their class work  
STEP 4 HOMEWORK  Complete the number sequences counting in 5s: 1 0, 5, 10, ____, 20, ____, ____, 35, 40, ____, 50. 2 50, 45, ____, 35, 30,____, 20, 15, ____, 5, 0.  The pupils writes it in their homework book  
STEP 5 SUMMARY  The teacher summarizes by reminding the pupils that in today’s lesson we have learnt the 5 times table. 

PERIOD 4: 5 times table
PRESENTATION  TEACHER’S ACTIVITY  PUPIL’S ACTIVITY  
STEP 1 MENTAL MATHS  The teacher begins the lesson with some mental calculations What is the multiplication number sentence?
 Pupils respond and participate  
STEP 2 CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT  The teacher • Gives each pair of learners a set of multiplication cards (5 times table). • The learners should cut up the cards. They should write the answers on the back of each card, to prepare them for use in this and other lessons. Make sure that they write the correct answers on the backs of the cards. The learners should put their cards in order from 1 × 5 = 5 to 10 × 5 = 50 on their desks. • Asks: What is the pattern in the answers? (The answers increase by 5 each time). Learners turn their cards over to show the answer side up. The teacher says a multiplication problem from the 5 times table. Learners grab the card with the correct answer.
CLASS ACTIVITY The teacher • Using the 5 times table cards play the following games. • Explains one game at a time. When the fast learners become tired of the first game, let them move on to the next game. You should walk around the class and make sure all of the learners a playing a game and having fun learning the 5 times table. • Helps learners who have not understood the rules of the games if necessary.
Game 1 1 One learner picks up one card at a time and reads it out loud. 2 The other learner gives the answer. 3 Learners take turns to ask and answer questions, checking the answers at the back of the card each time.
Game 2 1 Both learners draw a card from the pile. 2 They say the answer to each other. 3 The learner who gets the bigger answer is the winner. 4 When you have completed the cards, you can play the game again but this time the learner who gets the smaller answer is the winner.
Game 3 1 Lay all the cards out with the answers facing up. 2 Pick a card and say the multiplication number sentence for which the number you chose is the answer. 3 Take turns.  Pupils pay attention and participate  
STEP 3 CLASSWORK  Complete the table. Write repeated addition as multiplication.
 Pupils attempt their class work  
STEP 4 HOMEWORK  Complete the table. Write repeated addition as multiplication.
 The pupils writes it in their homework book  
STEP 5 SUMMARY  The teacher summarizes by reminding the pupils that in today’s lesson we have learnt the five times table.
She marks their class works, makes corrections where necessary and commends them positively
