I shared this pic on Instagram (follow me for more FlapJack love!) and had a few requests to explain my stations I used for practicing multiplication facts.
So here goes:
Station #1 – Poke Cards
These cards I have created myself. They are lots of fun and students check each other for accuracy. These are my Factor Friends poke cards.
Station #2 – SMART BOARD
Students play a Factor Friends Smart Board game that I have created.
Station #3 – CandyLand
CandyLand – This is one of the first resources I created. It covers missing factors and properties of multiplication.
Station #4 – Multiplication Jenga
You can read more about this awesome game by Rachael Lynette at Minds in Bloom.
Station #5 – Chinese Checkers Multiplication
I found this game for $1 at Dollar General. I added a pack of multiplication flashcards with the answers on the back. Students quiz each other and must get their problem right before they may take a turn.
Station #6 – BINGO!!
No explication needed here!
Station #7 – Arcademic Skillbuilders
I have three computers (thankfully), so I have saved this awesome math website as an icon on the desktop for students to click on and play.
Station #8 – Laptop Smart Board Games
I have two Mac laptops and I donated one of my own for students to play review games from my Third Grade Smart Board pack. This game is Candy Multiplication Arrays.
Station #9 – Wrap-Ups
A teacher donated these to me and the students love ’em!
Station #10 – iPad
I have a folder of multiplication apps on each student iPad. Students know to go directly to that folder and choose a game to play.
Station #11 – Bottle Cap Multiplication
Lots of fun! For details on how to play this, go here.
Station #12 – Dominoes
This was donated to me also by a teacher. If a group has connected a lot of dominoes, I let them snap a picture of their work with one of the iPads.
