In this quick and easy freebie, there are half-page and full-page wheels to meet your needs. This is perfect for any elementary students learning their first multiplication tables, including special education students, and would make an exciting math center! This activity can encourage collaboration or can be an engaging independent assignment.
- Let students color the wheels and add a paperclip to the center to complete the spinner. Laminate for the chance to play repeatedly!
- Have students play with the spinner, filling in the outermost ring with appropriate solutions. If students are playing in pairs or small groups, students will take turns spinning and answering. The winner can be the student who answered the most, or the student who filled in the final space.
- Differentiate by allowing students to use their favorite strategies (skip counting with fingers or manipulatives), allowing students to work in teams to show their work in solving the problem (e.g. an array), or by adding multiple choice options in each space to choose from.
