It's time to practice those bigger multiplication facts (7x7 to 12x12) with a partner and have fun at the same time!
A fellow TpT teacher asked me to make a second penguin dice game, and said she had dice with the numbers 7 through 12 to use with it. I knew that I did not have any of these dice, so I made my own! I used a Sharpie and foam cubes from the Dollar Tree (The blog post about this is HERE
). Another way to make your own would be to put stickers on the surfaces of regular dice, and write in the numbers.
Here's another great idea (Thanks, Cynthia!). For an extra challenge, use four regular dice and have students add each pair together before they multiply.
Simply place this Penguin Dice Game in a clear page protector and make two of these special dice. It can be played with game tokens or two colors of dry erase markers. That's it!
My students love playing this with a partner. It is just one simple tool that helps lead to the fluency/automaticity/memorization that is required in third grade by the Common Core State Standards. Of course, it can be used for review in other grades, as well!
The game comes in color, but will print just fine in black and white. I leave copies at a math center, or use them for early finishers. I even use it as a reward. I hope you enjoy using this free penguin partner multiplication dice game in your classroom!
This Free Multiplication Dice Game is meant to fit perfectly into a larger product, my Multiplication Memorization Tool Kit, 100+ pages of multiplication magic! You can check it out by clicking HERE
Happy Teaching with Multiplication Games,
