I teach 3rd grade math and am always looking for new ways to engage my students in learning their multiplication facts. I will be building a file for each fact, so as my students move up, they will have focused, specific practice on the fact they are currently working on. If you like these activities, look for the others in the future. Kids LOVE Building Blocks, so I am hoping this will make a difference with them. I will still do consistent timed tests, but am hoping these activities will help them understand the concept of multiplication. They will then be able to transfer this knowledge to new learning such as area, perimeter, fractions, division, distributive property, and more.

I do not own rights to ANY building block you choose to use, so this is your choice. You can find building blocks used for these activities at any department store, toy store, dollar store, flea markets, and from friends who are willing to donate. The goal here is for your students to have fun learning multiplication.
