This self-paced multiplication facts training program for times tables from 2 to 12 is a fun way for your students to memorize their multiplication table while pretending to accomplish a space mission. The space mission makes it a fun and engaging math game while developing fact mastery. This pack aligns to common core standard 3.OA.C.7
This download has everything to get you started. Included are decorations for the multiplication math game “Mission Multiplication”, a google slides/PDF introductory math activity that will get your students to understand the zero and identity properties of multiplication as well as walk them through other important multiplication vocabulary. After the google slides introduction, your students will complete a lap book which will be used to store all of their training papers AKA two practice worksheets for each times table 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, & 12. The lap book also is a place where students will store their multiplication facts flash cards and track their data. As soon as your students have a verbal exam with you, you will hole punch the correct mission to mark it as MULTIPLICATION MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
PDF versions of both google slide documents are included in case you do not use google slides in your classroom.
STUDENT PROCEDURE: Students will work at their own pace. They have facts flash cards, 2 practice sheets for each factor they need to master before signing up for a verbal review. They then get a hole punch and move on to the next mission, in other words another factor.
Also included are eight MP3's which are set to a tune with accompanying posters that can be printed out. These multiplication songs are great for skip counting and a great way to warm up to new math facts. There is also a separate PDF that has embedded audio so that you can keep this on your chrome books (or shared computer) so students can listen on their own time. ((Does not work on ipad))
