Teaching TImes Tables





Recently, I was asked about teaching times tables to young students. In 2nd grade we DO help our young ones understand the operation of multiplication with LOTS of manipulatives. After direct and guided instruction, I have found the best way for them to practice is with each other. Friends can be the great teachers! Once I know that my students understand the concept or multiplication... I encourage their practice time to be fun, exciting and interactive. I created these one page math games for each multiple 1-12. They are darling printed in color, however, they look terrific on bright cardstock and laminated for duriblity. The only manips they need are dice, chips and spinners.


My kids enjoy playing them at school and at home with siblings and parents.
Math CAN be fun! :)







Each game board is $1... however...


(and then 30% off between Aug 1-6)
I hope these help your kiddos!
