10 Ways to Practice Multiplication Facts

Getting your students to practice multiplication facts can be a challenge.  I have compiled 10 ways to practice multiplication facts, that my students have enjoyed.

1.  Use the traditional flashcards to play a game of Sparkle, multiplication style.

2.  Students roll two dice, then multiply the 2 numbers they rolled together.

3.  Create a memory game–one card contains the factors, the other contains the product.

4.  Dominoes-students draw a domino that is face down.  They multiply the dots on either side of the domino together.

5.  Play Pick-a-Card with a set of flashcards.

6.  Number Draw-no materials needed except your fingers!

7.  Play Ask-n-Switch which is a whole class game using flashcards.

8.  Multiplication War with a deck of cards.  Students each draw two cards, then multiply them together.  The student with the largest product wins the round.

9.  Math Poke-A-Fact.

10.  Multiples pyramid-students practice writing the first 10 multiples (or amount of your choice) for a given number.
