Bundle Description
This fun math facts game and parent outreach program work together to ensure mastery of math facts. At school, students break into two teams to play the math facts baseball game. Each inning consists of four 36-problem timed tests: addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. (Kids take one base for every test that’s 100% correct.) At home, parents support students with the multiplication coaching kit.

Math Facts Baseball provides a fun way to practice. It’s perfect for fourth or fifth graders who almost – but not quite – know their multiplication facts. The multiplication facts grid helps you figure out which facts kids need to study. As they focus on those, mastery comes quickly.

What’s Included in the Facts Baseball Game:
• Four teacher pages: Teaching the Facts, Math Facts Baseball, Multiplication Clinics, and More Ideas
• Multiplication Facts Grid
• Four sets of facts tests, each with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems
• Class scoreboard

If your students are “almost there” or “just a little rusty” with their facts, play one inning every day for nine days. If they still need some practice, try two innings per week. If your kids still need quite a bit of practice, play once each week. Each inning provides great practice of all four fact groups – and the friendly competition of this game motivates them to practice even more!

The coaching kit provides materials for parent outreach and teacher record-keeping. The parent and teacher team up and coach the child. First, they determine which facts the student knows. Then, the student practices only those facts. With persistence, everyone in the class moves closer and closer to mastery.

What’s Included in the Multiplication Facts Coaching Kit:
• Parent Letters – Three forms are included: a letter explaining the process to parents, a letter informing parents of specific facts students still need to learn, and a blank piece of Play Ball! stationery for your own personalized letter.
• Strategy for Learning 36 Facts – This page provides guidance for the process of systematically teaching multiplication facts.
• Facts Clinics – A step-by-step process helps parents, teachers, and/or homeschool providers guide children to learn their facts.
• Facts Grids – The fact grid is an essential piece of instruction. It records which facts a student knows (and more importantly, does not know). Two forms are included, one for home and one for school.
• Score Sheet – This handy checklist helps the teacher keep track of which facts each student in the class knows.

This game and coaching kit have been a hit in my classroom for many years. I hope your class will love it too!

Enjoy!

Yes, fluency with multiplication facts is helpful. But conceptualization is even more important. For better understanding of factors and multiples, check out this bundle.
