Multiplication Boot Camp Workbooks.
Skill-building, confidence boosting, self-paced, from skip counting to division. Repetition and challenge are the key to success.
Engaging and fun, my kiddies are snatching these off me!
Common Core Standard 3.0A.01
Designed and illustrated by Caroline Marks.
PRINT AND GO! 20 worksheets in each booklet. Children self-mark and take responsibility for their own learning, answer keys included! Just carry out the quick test at the end of every booklet, save loads of valuable time! Once they pass, they go right onto the next multiplication table. Use in any order you like. Use from start or to fill gap. Perfect for weak areas.
I teach tables EVERY DAY to the children I tutor. I have combined my experience and creativity to produce this BOOT CAMP MULTIPLICATION booklet for you to use with YOUR children. This booklet starts with skip-counting and introduces the inverse operation gradually, allowing the children to make their own connections with division. You can purchase the complete bundled set here:

Have I tried to aim this workbook at boys? You bet! I have loads of them with maths issues. However, I’ve used it with girls too and they LOVE it. The kids are ASKING me if they can do these booklets. They literally LOVE them.
You can print as much or as little as you need to suit your pupils. The booklet is produced so that children can work through it alone or with help. Younger children will need somebody to read some of the instructions to them, older children can just get on with it. Once they are set up they should be able to work through with little help.
All the kids need is this booklet and a pencil. You can provide cubes, beads or other manipulatives (such as soldiers) to help them.
You can print the pages full size or A5 size as a booklet (looks great) and is a perfect size to work on. If you have access to a binder then you can bind them large or small, or if not, then stapling them does a great job.
Please let me have your feedback, I would love to know how you get on.

A few ideas:
If you've got a whole class then why not split them into troups or base camps? Set up assault courses that involve multiplication facts, march out the tables, involve parents, set challenges and targets or hold award ceremonies. Get some great props and resources, soldiers, tanks, medals ... the only limit is your imagination.
Teach those kiddies their tables and set them up for life.
