What are some solid strategies to use to help students who miscount when drawing arrays or draw arrays incorrectly to multiply?
Also, what strategies do you all use to help students thoroughly answer all parts of a question (underlining, boxing verbs, highlighting steps, etc.)?

For lining up arrays correctly try using grid paper or loose leaf paper turned horizontally. That also works for lining up 2 or 3 digit computation problems.

For word problems you could prepare a separate answer sheet. For problems with several questions you could try this:

ex: #10
a. ____________________
b. ____________________
c. ____________________

Adjust the length and number of lines based on what a correct answer would need. BTW, having a separate answer sheet is usually easier and faster to check.

Great strategies RetiredKat! You are truly a wealth of knowledge. Both strategies sound effective and easy to teach. Will definitely implement both strategies with the students next week.

That's very sweet of you. Actually I've just been around a long time and have picked up a trick or two along the way.

I'm on the email list for "This reading mama". If you sign up for her blog she'll send you passwords for some really nice FREEBIES (my favorite word). This a.m. her email has a password to access multiplication/division flashcards. Each card has the 3 numbers in a triangle. You cover up one number and the student tells you the missing number.
