This is a great way to practice and consolidate the timestable for the 2 - 12 multiplication tables in the classroom.
These easy prep cards can be used for 4 fun and engaging games that can involve the teacher or allow children time to work in groups or independently.
Game 1 – Racing Line
Line up the cards in a row, either shuffled or in order. Row length can vary based on ability. Students race to identify the answer and get to the end of the line in a speedy time.
Game 2 – What’s the Question?
Line up the cards in a row. Row length can vary based on ability. Students race to identify the question based on the answer.
Game 3 – Speed Draw
Best played in teams of 2 – 4. One person deals a card out and the first player to call out the answer wins the card. The individual with the most cards at the end wins.
Game 4 – Flash Friends
Played in groups of 2 – 4. One person flashes up one side of the card. The remaining children in the group either call out the answer or record in on a whiteboard. Points are gained for correct answers.
Other Suggested Activities
Using these cards children can identify the common multiples easily. The colour coding of the cards support children see how different times-tables can derive the same answer.
Students can use these independently to improve their multiplication recall.
Great used as either what’s the answer or what is the question flashcards.
