Do your students need help mastering their basic multiplication facts? Do you have students at various levels?
Here is a fun, easy to learn game, that will have your students learning their multiplication facts without realizing they are studying!
There are 11 game boards included. Each game board is for practicing a different fact from 2-12. Students take turns finding the sum of two dice and then multiplying the sum by the factor they need to practice. Students mark their product on the game board in an effort to connect four squares joined by sides. Each group of four gets the player 1 point.
Everyone in the class can play the same game, but each child can be playing with a partner that needs to work on the same facts that he/she does.
Even special needs students can play this game. You can scaffold this game by allowing student access to a multiplication chart. While students are using the multiplication chart, they are not only becoming proficient at using the chart, they more they practice locating a fact, the more likely they are to be able to recall certain facts without referring to the chart.
