Students in upper elementary need to have their multiplication facts memorized, and should be able to recall answers without stopping to think. Unfortunately, multiplication instruction is often rote and monotonous, leaving kids bored and discouraged.
This document is composed of 15 different multiplication games - including materials and game boards - for kids to play while practicing their facts. Some are whole group games, others are intended for pairs or small teams in centers or small group work.
Also included are 20 pages of worksheets for extra practice and review, as well as a story that illustrates the role of patterns in multiplication.
