Multiplication is one of the most important math concepts, yet teachers year after year are constantly reinforcing the skill that should be mastered by the end of third grade. Students need time to learn their multiplication facts. This product allows me to approach multiplication in a relaxed and supportive way that stays with students long-term. I can assign one set of facts per week, starting with the easiest facts they already know through skip counting (0, 1, 2, 5, 10), and working our way through medium (3, 9, 11) and harder facts (4, 6, 7, 8, 12). During the week, we practice facts each day using flash cards, playing multiplication games or singing songs. Students build momentum and confidence as they pass each test and realize memorizing multiplication facts isn’t as challenging as they originally thought. Multiplication transforms from a scary and foreign math concept to something that's fun and easy to do.
