I am always trying to come up with new ways for the kids to brush up on their multiplication and this is such a fun way to do just that. I read the problem and they have to think of what the answer is and then look for it on their card.

Flashcards are only fun for so long but can you really practice multiplication enough?! It just makes math so much easier in the long run when they know them so well. At first you may need to play slowly depending on the grade level but eventually you get to the point where you try to see how fast you can go through.

Attached is the document I made for us to play. It has 3 playing cards and the problems I used to make them.

This definitely makes me want to come up with some more games to practice multiplication because this was a huge success.
