Print cards on card stock, and cut out. Hand the cards out to students, and then pick a student to go first. Student reads card using "I have... Who has... format. The child with the correct answer reads his/her card. Play continues until all cards are read.
You can do partners, individual play or use at a center or in small groups.
Time the students, then have them try to beat their best time!
This is an easy and fun way for students to understand the foundations of the area model and begin developing multiplication fluency!
