I LOVE playing games (not gonna lie, I've been known to get a little too serious about a game or two of Monopoly). But it's not just me. My students LOVED playing games. I've never seen such an engaged group as when we played math games during Funday Friday. Do you want to know the best thing about math games for the classroom? Math games are not only fun, but they're an incredibly good way to practice math skills! They turn boring ol' math practice into a fun, motivational exercise. In fact, games are so much fun that students don't even know that they're learning! Sshhh..just don't tell my students. I want to share 8 fun multiplication games that you can use in your math centers. One reason I love these multiplication games is because they don't require you to buy anything special. You can use materials you already have in your classroom. So dig out the dice, playing cards, math counters, and let's play some math games!
Those days of forgetting their math facts? Staring blankly at a multiplication problem? Adding or subtracting when they should be multiplying? Done. Gone. Over. Those days are in the past! Today we’re going to learn how to teach multiplication facts to our students with disabilities so that they build conceptual knowledge and retention.
