Grades: 2 and up
Number of Players: 2-5
Object of the Game: Be the first to color a box on the top row
This is a quick game that helps students practice a set of facts. Sheets for 2 through 9 are included. Each group chooses a number to work on for multiplication. They take turns rolling dice and multiplying the number by the practice sheet number. The repetition helps students practice their facts in a fun way.
Laura and Jake want to work on their 4 Facts, so they grab the 4 Product Practice Sheet. Laura goes first and she rolls a 10-sided die while Jake holds the sheet (so Laura can't see). Laura's die lands on 4. Laura knows that 4 x 4 is 16, which she tells her partner. Jake agrees and hands her the paper to color. Then, they switch rolls. Jake rolls the die and Laura holds the sheet.
This continues until on of the players colors the top box. Anyone can win, even if the top box is the ONLY box they've colored in the whole column.
Have fun! :)
