Looking for a fun, whole class, interactive activity to practice multiplication facts that requires virtually no prep? Multiplication Facts Timed Practice provides a neat and fun way for students to practice multiplication facts, and the only prep needed is to print the student Recording Sheet!
Kids love activities involving "Beat the Clock." On this PowerPoint, the 2's - 12's tables are randomly grouped and a single fact slide is presented. Each fact slide is timed for a 6-seconds response before advancing to the next slide. The student recording worksheet is provided for students to record their answers to each slide. Then at the end of each table's group of facts, they check their answers with the 'Check Your Work' answer-key slide . Students will enjoy the ability to self-evaluate their performance.
There are a number of ways to use this multiplication practice. It can be used as a whole class independent practice, or it can be used in a FUN GAMING FORMAT where the class is be divided into teams for a teams challenge. Then it can be used in a math center for independent practice or cooperative small groups. You can use it in any creative way you can think of whenever your students could benefit from extra multiplication facts practice.
Multiplication Facts Timed Practice is a great activity for Common Core Math 3.OA.7 and for continued practice for 4th and fifth graders to reach the goal of becoming fluent with multiplication facts by the end of 5th grade.
