Looking for ways to make multiplication homework fun and engaging? There definitely aren't enough hours in the school day for kids to learn all the multiplication facts so sending home a game made for homework is ideal.
Multiplication strategy games contain 15 black ink games that have been designed to be used for reviewing multiplication strategies. They are perfect for homework but can also be used for morning work, as a math center or to place in your sub tub.
Each game has a fold-down section which illustrates the multiplication strategy that should be used when answering the equations. This can be opened if the child is unsure of the answer. If you are using the games for homework, parents can also use this section to read about the strategy. A recording sheet which requires that the child writes up to twenty of their facts is included.
