Division I Have Who Has Game

Its an oldie but a goodie! I have, who has is a favourite with my kids. The reason this resource came into being is because we lost a few of the cards I have had for years and years and our game was kaput. Thus my fresh, new and colourful card game helping us to learn our math facts with multiplication and division. Use it for small guided math groups or centres activities. Perfect for 3rd grade, 4th grade and 5th grade students. Try these out for FREE!

The multiplication cards in my store are an entire class set, with 36 cards showing multiples and factors to practice our multiplication tables up to 10s.
Besides the usual way of playing it across the class, we have been timing ourselves to see how our fluency is developing and improving each week. The kids absolutely LOVE this competition that they have with themselves.

These can of course, also be used for small guided math groups and math centres activities.
For those of you who aren't as old as I am (!), I have included teacher instructions too. 


Enjoy!

Maths: Multiplication and Division Worksheet

Beat the Clock game. Excellent starter, especially if you want them to settle down really quick, I normally put 10 minutes on the stop watch. They then have to complete the questions as quickly as possible they then mark down the time they finish and as a class we mark them. Pupils can try and improve their score and time each time. You can easily change it so it can include decimals to make it more challenging.

Multiplication & Division Puzzles

Included in this pack are 9 multiplication puzzles and 9 division puzzles to practise times tables for x2 to x10

How to use:
Simply print the sheets, laminate so they last longer and then cut the hexagons. Students are to then join the hexagons together using multiplication or division facts. The final shape should make a ‘flower’ shape with a hexagon in the middle and 6 around the outside.

These differentiated puzzles can be used in any spare 5-10 minutes. As an early morning consolidation activity or as even as an extension activity for early finishers.

These puzzles cover the NC Programme of Study:
