Thanksgiving Math FREE Fun to Entice Your Third Grade Math or Fourth Grade Math Students


Gobble! Gobble! It is almost turkey time. That means it is time to integrate Thanksgiving FUN with math. The days leading up to the holiday can busy and hectic.  Why not take that time to brush up on multiplication facts.  Knowing multiplication facts with instant recall is so important for numerous other math topics including greatest common factors, least common multiples, multiplying integers, and multiplying fractions.   I even use multiplication myself for long division as I think of the inverse operation to help me solve division problems. Full disclosure: I know my multiplication facts faster than my division facts.  Ssssh, don't tell my students. 


So grab your brightest and most colorful crayons and let's get started!  What a GREAT way to have your Third Grade Math students, Fourth Grade Math or even your Fifth Grade Math students review their multiplication facts for fluency and accuracy than with Multiplication Color by Number Activities?  My students love coloring and I love the quiet and calmness it seems to bring in my classroom. I have even been known to play relaxing Enya or slow jazz while children work in small groups or independently on these worksheets.   


Don't believe me? Try it yourself.  I created this Thanksgiving Multiplication Worksheet just for you.

If your students enjoyed practicing their multiplication facts with the freebie above, check out these Thanksgiving Multiplication Color by Number Activities on TPT.  Each page focuses on a different factor. So some of your students can be brushing up on their times 2 or times 10 facts, while other students can be focusing on more challenging facts like times 8 or times 12.  I say differentiation is key to mathematical confidence and success.
