Arrays in 2nd Grade

So since we have finished testing I have been pulled to sub 4 of the 5 days!!! 3 in 5th and 1 in Second. I prefer 2nd! In second they were doing arrays! I was so excited because I had been working on an array pack! So I got to try it out! We made an anchor chart.

They had fun coming up with what shape to do for the arrays (notice the D's bet you can't guess what that child's name starts with) and how many rows and columns. Then I let students build arrays on the ELMO. 

They loved it! They totally got it too! About a minute into the anchor chart and one asks "So is this actually multiplication?" Yes smart student, yes it is!
