  • Using Manipulatives to teach Times Tables
    draw on their paper If they roll 3 for example they draw 3 circles They roll the die a second time The number they roll is how many dots they put in each circle So if they roll a 4 they put 4 dots in each circle This gives them 3 groups of 4 dots They count the dots and that s their score for the round Each student plays 4 rounds The highest score wins Times Tables Once your students understand grouping they are ready for times tables While the old method of rote learning repeating the tables over and over until they are memorized can still be used many students learn better if you use methods that engage their minds and the rest of their senses Play a memory matching game Make a deck of cards with the problems being learned such as the 3s from the multiplication table and turn these face down on one side of the play area Make a second deck of cards with the answers and turn these face down on the other side of the play area The student flips over a card from the problem side then goes to the answer side and flips a card If the answer is the right card then both are left face up and the student gets another turn If not then both are turned back over and the next student gets a turn This game can be used in any size classroom Just divide the students into teams and give each team the needed cards As the students learn more of the times table problems and answers can have more variety allowing them to practice more than one set at a time Word games There are several types of word games that can help

  • Creative Ideas for Teaching Times Tables
    then the problem is 3 x card value and the student should answer as quickly as possible This can be done individually or students can be divided into teams with teams trying to get the most cards answered correctly Divide the deck in half Flip over one card from each half and answer the problem For example if the two cards flipped over were 2 and 3 then the student would say 2 x 3 6 Pairs that cause hesitation or that the student cannot answer show where the student is having trouble or needs further practice As with the first game this can be done individually or students can be divided into teams Divide students into teams Shuffle the deck and deal each player 6 cards The first player names a Target Product This number must be the product of two cards in the player s hand Each player then shows pairs of cards in their hands that are factors of the target product Everyone must agree that the cards are factors The players get the sum of all of their correct factors as their score for that round The cards are shuffled and dealt again The winner is the first player to reach 100 Variations of this game could include changing the winning score using three or four cards to reach the target and playing with partners Play Bingo Instead of calling out spaces on the game cards the teacher calls out multiplication problems Students place their markers on the answer to the problem Teach quick tricks Not all of these tricks make multiplication faster but they do provide a quick a way to check answers When multiplying by 10 just add a 0 For example in 3 x 10 move the 3 to the left and put
