The Multiplication Fact Fluency Fans Resource was developed to aid students in massive oral practice of multiplications facts. One paper is used over a long period of time. No need for wasting paper and printer ink. This resource makes for a great Math Center with partner work!
Each multiplication fact fan has a student fan intended for students to give answers verbally, not in written form. A second fan includes the answer key. Students work in pairs checking answers. A variation is to have parents and students work together as homework partners.
After a student is confident in the math facts, timing may be introduced. I suggest a two minute time. Student mark the last fact verbalized and tries to “beat” the time on their next attempt. Students are improving upon their own time.
Once the student is able to complete the entire fan, they may “test” with the teacher or other support staff. A Multiplication Recording sheet is included for students to color as they progress.
The resource comes with each math fact 1-12, mixed 0-5, 6-10, 0-10 0-12, (mixed facts).
To create a fan, print the two math fact pages back to back, setting your printer to "flipping on the short side". I like to print mine on colored paper for each math fact. Then accordion fold the page.
Variation 1: Students may start at the bottom and move up each column.
Variation 2: The students start on a different column each day.
