‘Times Tables Twisters’ is a great resource that gives you differentiated activities that can be used to combine the learning of times tables with the writing of tongue twisters.
It can be delivered as a class lesson or used by individual children on their iPads.
The children meet different characters who, like many children, were finding the learning of times tables difficult, until they came up with this unique way of remembering them.
Each PowerPoint lesson describes, in detail, how the 6, 7 and 9 times tables can be used to create some interesting tongue twisters.
This resource contains:
- Three PowerPoint presentation lessons one for each of the times tables – 6x, 7x and 9x.
- A PDF containing a set of differentiated grids that the children can use to help them create their own times table tongue twisters.
- An Excel sheet with the same set of differentiated grids on that can be used by children with their own laptops and/or iPads.
- A set of teachers’ notes with follow up ideas.
As well as having fun with words the children are creating their own mnemonics to help them remember their tables.
All the money raised from the sale of this resource goes to a local charity for children called MedEquip4Kids.
