'The Great 38' is a fun and motivating strategy for learning times tables.
It is time to party! Learning your times tables just got a whole lot easier!
I have devised a list of 38 'essential' times tables to focus on. This fact list has been created by removing all the 'easy' and 'repeated' times tables from the master list of 0x0 to 12x12.
I have removed the x0, x1, x2, x10 and x11 facts that are very easy for students to memorise.
I included only ONE of each multiplication 'TWIN' - for example, 3x4 is included but NOT 4x3.
You must insure students know their easy facts and turnaround facts.
I have included a students reference sheet clearly showing all multiplication facts and the 'Great 38'.
A poster for each set of times tables, with just the 'Great 38' clearly shown in black, so students have a visual reminder of just how few facts that need to work on (seeing ALL of them on display is overwhelming).
2 sets (with and without answers) of drill / fluency flashcards and 5 timed test worksheets is also included!
Your students will LOVE this strategy and practice!
