Children love this activity.
4 differentiated 'Cootie Catcher.’ - (we call them 'chatterboxes' over in 'lil old England!) The repetitive (and competitive) nature of this resource caters for all abilities, from those trying hard to master their facts to those who want to learn their tables inside out and backwards!
A bit of cutting followed by some origami style folding, leads to these interactive visual and kinaesthetic activities, based on the childhood 'fortune teller' game. Fantastic speaking and listening opportunities, encouraging children to use appropriate mathematical vocabulary.
Typical questions range from,
'What are 3 lots of 10?'
'What is the product of 7 and 10?'
'Give two multiplication facts for the numbers 90, 10 and 9'
Emphasis is given to learning division facts alongside the multiplication facts, to encourage understanding of the inverse relationship between the two operations.
Use as starter, plenary, brain break, small group work, intervention groups, etc ... and popular with parents as homework.
Bit cheeky, but all the other times tables Cootie Catchers .... or Chatterboxes, are available in my store :))
