Set of 18 Times Tables Fun Grids ideal for homework

(0)
This resource contains 18 separate times tables grids. Each contains a number of separate tasks and they are ideal for weekly homework sheets or to be used in maths lessons as a quick starter. I have used these very effectively with my class in preparation for the times tables check that is coming very soon. There are 11 sheets related to each of the 2 -12 times tables followed by 7 further sheets relating to mixed times tables. There is space for working on each sheet. They contain multiplication and division ‘find the missing number’ or ‘hole in the wall’ questions, there is also a cut out of a times table grid and a triangle of blocks which asks the child to calculate products of previous numbers. I have used these sheets in class as a timed exercise once a week - and there is space on the sheet to record the time taken per child. If you like this resource - let me know and check out my other maths related resources on this site. Thanks
