You have never seen multiplication facts taught like this before! I have created a multiplication story to go with each fact students have to memorize in the multiplication times table for facts 0-12. This multiplication stories freebie aligns with 3.OA.7.

Check out the full resource for ALL multiplication facts HERE!

Over the past few years, I have realized that memorization of multiplication facts doesn’t come easily to all my students. Flash cards just don’t work for some students. I came up with these stories to help students that struggle to remember their multiplication facts.

I created a “character” for each number. Students associate each number with a character. Then, when they think of a multiplication fact, they are thinking of what happens when the two characters meet each other. My students LOVE these stories and memorization has become something FUN and ENGAGING in my classroom. I think your kids will love these stories just as much as mine have.

This freebie includes stories for the 0 and 1 facts. Interested in the stories for facts 2-12?
