FREE MATH LESSON - “Multiplication Fact Practice Activity FREEBIE”

by Chrysti's Class
3rd - 4th Grade

This fun activity will help students with the harder multiplication facts. Great for Remediation, Centers, Fast Finishers or as a Whole Class Activity.

Many students become overwhelmed when trying to learn their multiplication times tables. This resource will help you and your students make the task less daunting.

The Multiplication Monster Match Activity is designed to give students practice in the harder equations although the resource includes suggestions for helping students learn all their facts using some fun tricks. If they practice the tricks then they only need to memorize about 12 facts or less. These tricks are included in this resource.

The activity comes in 2 versions to meet student needs.

Congratulating students for their success is important so I have included GENERIC certificates for you to use in any way you want.

As always my resources are available in color and black and white for your printing needs. This resource has a color and black and white copy for all pages.

 3 Tried & True Games to Teach Place Value & Rounding
By Kathie Yonemura of Tried and True Teaching Tools
 Beginning of the year. . . I used to be so tempted to skip teaching place value because it seemed too simplistic, assuming kids knew how to read larger numbers. Plus I wanted to get on with the "real math":multiplication and long division. WRONG! Developing number sense and place value are critical to understanding ALL math!

  Never Give Up... Persevere!
By Deann Marin of Socrates Lantern  
 If you've never used read aloud picture books with your middle schoolers, you should consider it. Not only do picture books get a point across, but they're fun, images are beautiful and they don't take much time.. You can easily come up with ideas to reinforce what you've read. 
 A Cheer For Spelling
By Gini Musamanno of Reading Spotlight 
 Spelling practice does not have to be boring! Try this cheer to add some enthusiasm to weekly spelling words.
The Left Angle Mystery
By Vicky Rauch of Scipi
Geometry is probably my favorite part of math to teach because it is so visual; plus, the subject lends itself to doing many hands-on activities, even with my college students. When our unit on points, lines and angles is finished, it is time for the unit test. Almost every year I ask the following question: What is a left angle? Some of the responses I have received over the years are disheartening.
5 Steps to Creative Classroom Projects
By Renee Heiss of  All-American Teacher Tools
Have you ever noticed that someone else's class has developed much more creative writing assignments, science fair projects, or fundraising strategies? Well, either that person is extremely lucky, extremely gifted in motivating his or her students, or simply using proven methods to stimulate creativity. Chances are, that person is simply familiar with the 5-Step Creativity Process
