Learning basic multiplication facts is a challenge for many students. Students need to memorize basic facts so they will be able to answer them quickly when solving advanced math problems. Students that do not memorize basic multiplication and division facts often struggle with math in the higher grades. So how do you motivate kids to learn their basic math facts? Simply reciting facts or practicing with flashcards is not enough to get kids excited to learn. Instead, try some hands-on games that make learning math facts more fun! Game: Multiplication Draw. Number of players: 2 or more. Materials: A deck of 52 playing cards; Blank paper & pencil for scoring. Each number card is worth face value. Jacks, queens, and kings are worth 10, 11, and 12 respectively. Aces are worth 1.To play the game, shuffle the deck of cards. Player 1 picks two cards from the top of the deck. He will then multiply the cards together. For example, if player 1 drew a queen and a 3, he would multiply 11 and 3 to get 33 points. Each player takes turns drawing two cards, multiplying them, and writing their products on the score sheet.When the the last card in the deck is drawn, players add the products on the score sheet. The player with the highest score in the winner.
I should have known better, but I did not check on her at the beginning and then I got busy. So, sometime later, she brought me 50 sentences of "I will not disobey my parents again." She had just practiced misspelling "again" as "agent" -- 50 times! I am not certain that we ever really got that fixed. This issue of NOT practicing mistakes is extremely important. Parents should not give worksheets as busy work and teachers should only use them if you are going to have a non-math teacher substitute. White boards with supervision are always a better way to practice skills. If you need some time to do chores, your child will get much more benefit by helping you with the chores. And maybe you can work in a little discussion of numbers or counting while you do chores together.
