How to Get Your Students to Love Practicing Multiplication Facts with a Freebie

It seems like it is Multiplication Season for Third Grade Math students. My students practice their multiplication facts for fluency and mastery several different ways in the classroom.  

Sometimes we play multiplication games. Here are our favorite...
* Rolling for Fluency
* Factor Find
* Memory 
Tic Tac Toe.  

Occasionally on a Fun Friday, we will play an all class game of Multiplication Basketball, Multiplication Bounce Off or some other type of game show forum (I do love recreating a Family Feud set up in the classroom with buzzers)  

Other times we practice writing times tables in...
* shaving cream
sidewalk chalk
* Window Markers 

All of these practice opportunities are valuable and engaging for my students.  I know my students enjoy these diverse methods to increase their fact power.  

However, I think one of their "all time favorite" ways is to practice their math facts through color by number activities.  I play classical music or relaxing jazz music while the students work independently or with a partner to solve and color their facts.

I have created several different color by code activity resources for holidays, special occasions and numerous other packets for times table practice . My newest creation incorporates Cats and Dogs...who doesn't love a cute kitty or adorable pup pic :)

I made a free sample just for you.  If your students need additional practice mastering their multiplication facts, grab it below.

Bottom Line: Knowing multiplication facts with mastery is so important for higher math concepts.  I find when I have students practice their multiplication facts in numerous ways, it helps them memorize and recall their facts with more ease.
