Product Description

There are nine different THIRD GRADE MULTIPLICATION MATH CENTERS included in this product! There are also five different choice boards included so you can easily integrate the stations into your math block.

Third graders will love using these math centers to practice their multiplication skills! These centers align with standards 3.OA.1 and 3.OA.7.

The nine multiplication centers included are:

-Independent Worksheet

Students complete a worksheet by themselves to show their knowledge of multiplication equations.

-Partner Worksheet

Students work with a partner (cooperative learning strategies encouraged!) to solve the multiplication worksheet together.

-Five Error Analysis Writing Prompts

Students analyze what five students did wrong when solving multiplication equations and write about what they know. The multiplication error analysis prompts include repeated addition, the commutative property of multiplication, skip counting, drawing arrays, and using equal groups.

-Task Card Game

Students answer each multiplication task card. If the answer is correct, the student rolls two dice and records their score. With each turn the student takes, they earn more points. The student who has the most points at the end of the game wins!

-Race to Match Game

Students race each other or the clock to match up multiplication facts to the answers as quickly as possible. A recording sheet has been included as well to allow for self-reflection.

-Line Them Up (Team Game)

Students race in partners of in teams to beat the other team. The students have to line up the multiplication equations in the correct order in order to get to the finish card. Each team has the same cards, but the cards are in a DIFFERENT order. This game is a class favorite!

-Multiplication Math Sort (Cut and Glue Activity)

Students cut out the multiplication math sort equations and glue them in the proper place on the math sort page. Students can complete this independently or with a partner in a math center. Answer key provided for self-check.

-Multiplication Tic-Tac-Toe (10 boards included)

Students solve each tic-tac-toe board by playing with a partner. The first board includes multiplication facts with the factor of one, the second board includes multiplication facts with a factor of 2, and each board progresses through each of the factors all the way to ten. Differentiate and choose the board that is appropriate for each pair of your students or put them all in a math center!

-Multiplication Acorn Puzzles (set of 12)

Students put together 12 acorn puzzles that show an array, a multiplication equation, and an answer when the puzzle is completed.

The great part about these math centers is that they are easy to implement in your classroom. The centers can be used with the choice boards included or without the choice boards! Simply implement the math centers into your classroom however they work best for you!

Each of the games or worksheets can easily be completed independently, with partners, with groups, or in a whole group setting.
