Make Multiplication Facts Fun!

I am old enough to remember chanting times tables in class. Yes that's how it was done many years ago and Yes it was BORING! But it actually did help to cement these facts into my brain.

Learning multiplication facts doesn't come easily for some kids! But luckily today you don't need to have kids chant and chant in rote form.
There are lots of different ways to review facts and help kids to develop mastery of multiplication facts.

Of course my favorite ways to do this is with games. I developed my Tic Tac Toe games to help do this and I have another set of Multiplication games also.

Here are some FREEBIES that help to make multiplication fun!
 

Catch the Monkeys Multiplication Game

In this game, the players move around the board trying to catch the monkeys! To catch a monkey they have to answer a multiplication fact!

   
 

Tic Tac Toe

With these game boards kids are playing regular Tic Tac Toe with one difference - they have to answer a multiplication fact before they can put down a O or X.
 
             
 
These are my collections of board games that focus on multiplication facts!
 

Tic Tac Toe Multiplication Facts

This set contains 24 game boards that focus on multplication by a particular number so that kids can practice times facts for just one number, e.g. x7 and also multiplication by mixed numbers.
