After learning the basics of multiplication I use these flashcards to help students master the basic multiplication facts.
Each student has their own set of cards which they will cut out once they pass the certain fact. For example, a student has to pass off their x1 before they can cut out their x2 flash cards. In order for students to pass they have to take a little quiz. (I have not included the quiz yet...but I will)
I have included two copies of these flash cards, one that is colored and one that is not.
For those who use the one without color, I suggest printing each set of facts on a different colored cardstock that way students can easily tell which color cards (or multiplication fact) they need to practice.
