Fun, strategic games to practise times table facts. Laminate and use again and again. The original files contain boards for the 2-9 times tables and an additional file contains versions with 11 and 12 times table calculations added. All times table boards come in colour and black and white versions. I recommend printing in A3 if possible but A4 is okay.
Multiplying Games: Two children (or two pairs of children) take it in turns to write an answer over a times table question on the board. Ideally they use a different colour whiteboard pen, however if this is not possible they could add an initial or symbol each time too. First to get 4 in a row - vertically, horizontally or diagonally - is the winner. The times tables questions are designed to print in faintish grey (on the black and white versions) or white (on the colour versions) so as not to get in the way of the children's answers. It works especially well if pupils roll a dice to determine which column they should answer a question from. The columns are numbered 1-6. If the column is already completed, they could either miss a go or roll again.
Differentiation: All 2-9 times table versions come in a differentiated format too, with sidebars added, featuring all answers listed in numerical order. This works really well with lower ability or younger pupils who require a little more support. They can score through the number they have used each time.
Dividing Game (2-10 time table): There is a set of cards to go with the division board. Print 2 sets on different coloured card for each game being played. Children take it in turns to lay a card down on a matching answer box. The cards are the right size to work with the division board when the division board is printed in A3. If printing the board in A4, scale down the cards to match. I've included the cards in Word format too, for convenience.
