FREEBIE: Sweet Multiplication - A Fun Way to Practice Multiplication Facts
Success is sweet...when your students know their multiplication facts!
Fluency in math facts is crucial for students in order to progress successfully through math concepts. However, boring math drills are not motivating for students. This product will motivate your students to memorize their multiplication facts.
This multiplication facts fluency bulletin board is a fun way for students to learn, practice, and know their multiplication facts (up to 12). As students learn and practice their multiplication facts through fact quizzes, they build a fake ice cream sundae. Each level has a part of the sundae. For example, once the students know all of their x0 multiplication facts, they earn their place mat. After they know the x1, they glue their napkin to the place mat, x2 they earn their bowl, x4 they earn their first scoop and so on. Once they know all their multiplication facts up to 12, they earn a real ice cream sundae! The visual representation of what each student has mastered is a great reminder of what they still need to practice.
