Students need to learn their multiplication facts! This product eliminates the need for time consuming prep to practice their fluency facts. No need to spend your precious prep time printing worksheets. No more need to grade each one. No more need to use up paper when we have technology to help students learn skills. This power point is easy to access and can be used over and over for years to come. You can even modify it and add more slides.
From the third grade forward, students need to be able to fluently multiply. A better way to practice than printing worksheets is to pull up this power point and read and repeat it aloud. Seeing the facts and saying them out loud activates learning pathways for both visual and auditory learners. I suggest if you have a cd player to also play an upbeat instrumental music selection in the background. To get the kinesthetic learners on board, have the students clap, stomp, jump or another body movement after each math fact. The first two slides also include the name and explanation of some multiplication properties that are important in later grades.
Students will want to race to say the next math fact before you hit the next button. This is another way to use this power point.
Simply pick one or more slides you want the students to practice daily. You will be amazed how a 3 minute warm up will help your students grow. This is a great warm up before your main lesson. It will quickly build your students confidence in math.
Each slide comes with dynamic transitions that excite students to learn and look forward to the next math fact. Each slide contains multiplication facts through 12. To activate the animated transitions, be sure to view this power point in the presentation mode, not the edit or view mode.
