This bundle includes everything you need to teach multiplication facts for fluency and understanding! You’ll find no prep games for every week of the school year, a math fact booklet for each set of multiplication facts, AND a multiplication tool kit that’s FULL of resources.
Multiplication Fact Booklet
These multiplication fact booklets can be used to help students understand the concept of multiplication, as well as memorize multiplication facts. There are eleven total booklets (2 facts-12 facts) that are each eight pages long. At the end of each booklet, there are two pages that can be cut out and used as flashcards. On each page students will:
-represent the multiplication fact on a hundreds chart
-write another multiplication fact using the commutative property
-create an array to represent the multiplication fact
-model using repeated addition
-identify the number of groups and the number in each group
Teaching students these multiplication strategies, will be a tremendous help to students as they work on math fluency and automaticity. The booklets can be used as morning work, bell work, extra activities for early finishers, or even homework. There are two versions: one version will allow you to make front to back copies to save paper, and the other version is for front only copies.
Weekly Multiplication Games
Get your students to ask for MORE multiplication practice! These 30 weeks worth of multiplication games that are PERFECT for homework and would make a great center or station activity. All of the games are no prep, and the only materials needed are common household items. This makes learning multiplication facts fun!
There are 30 different multiplication games that can be sent home as a weekly multiplication game. The games are all so fun that students won’t realize they’re studying multiplication facts as they are playing! The games are organized by materials needed: playing cards, dice, common household items, and electronic. I have only included three electronic games, since I wanted the games to be accessible to all students.

This resource is to be used as a tool kit to help your students achieve success with multiplication facts. This program is designed to have students work on one set of facts a week. Students are able to move at their own pace through their multiplication facts, and there is a focus on both fluency and automaticity.
With this program, students are expected to complete seven multiplication activities each week. Students should complete the activities in the given order to allow for developmental and conceptual understanding. The activities can be part of a math warm-up, math rotation, or even a special 10 minute math fact block. The resources are organized by set of math facts, so you can print and prep each set of student practice pages easily, without shuffling through multiple pages to find exactly what you need.
- Multiple Representation Task Cards-Students match an equation with a corresponding array and repeated addition problem.
- Multiplication Flashcards-There are three sets of flashcards for each level of multiplication facts. The first set focuses on concrete representation, where students use snap cubes or counters to model each multiplication fact. The second set of flash cards focuses on pictorial representations, where students have a pictorial representation of the fact on the flash card. The third set of flash cards focuses on abstract understanding. This is where students work on the flashcard in a traditional way. I recommend printing each level or set on a different color paper.
- Multiplication Strategy Notebook-For each set of facts, students will complete a page in their Multiplication Fact Strategy Booklet. Students should model a different fact with a factor of the set of multiplication facts they are working on using different strategies. Students will model the problems with a grouping model, number line, and two arrays. Students also explain HOW to use a strategy to solve the set of problems.
- Word Problems-To help students conceptualize multiplication problems, they should also solve multiplication word problems. There is one page of multiplication problems for each set of facts. Students solve two multiplication problems that include that factor. Then, students write two multiplication problems, one where the number represents how many are in each group and one where the number represents how many groups there are.
- Individual Fact Practice-These are self monitored quizzes, where students do not race a timer to finish a certain number of questions. Instead, students time themselves to see how long it takes them to complete all of the questions. Students will graph their progress to encourage meta-cognition.
- Study Plan Bookmarks-These help hold students accountable for practicing their math facts at school and at home.
