DD is learning her multiplication tables. Yesterday, I shared the multiplication practice worksheets I made for her in the Pokemon theme. I made her some cards with some of her beloved Pokemon characters. I’ll share it here in case anyone else is interested!

We’ll use these cards to play a game called Fast Track that we made years ago. This was an idea I got from the wonderful book, Games for Math: Playful Ways to Help Your Child Learn Math, From Kindergarten to Third Grade (affiliate link) by Peggy Kaye. When she’s going over the 4s, for example, she’ll turn over the card (let’s say 4×9), figure out the answer (36), and then move ahead nine spaces.
You can use this for number recognition, addition, subtraction, multiplication … the possibilities are really endless!
If you like these cards, you might also like the Pokemon themed multiplication practice sheets that I shared a couple of days ago as well.

Learning the Multiplication Facts: As my daughter moved into learning her multiplication facts I looked around for the kind of multiplication practice that would help her. The math book she was using went through the math facts a bit too quickly for her. She needed quite a bit of repetition and wanted bright, colorful worksheets. I wound up making my own sets of practice pages and games. She loved that! Be sure to check out our Multiplication Bundle here: Learning the Multiplication Tables 2s thru 9s. Scroll down to see the links to these individual packets below.
Each of the Multiplication Math Packets I made for ED had a different theme. And as you will see, the packets progressed from fairly easy, straight-forward pages in the first packet to mixed multiplication and division problems by the time she was working on her 8s.
What order did she learn her math facts? 2s, 5s, 10s, 3s, 6s and 7s (because those skip counting songs were easy for her!), 4s, 9s, 8s.
Many of these are all on sale individually or you can buy the bundle of all these materials. ~Liesl
