Last week DD played many, many rounds of Fast Track. This is an idea I got years ago from Peggy Kaye’s wonderful book, Games for Math: Playful Ways to Help Your Child Learn Math, From Kindergarten to Third Grade (affiliate link). We used the little Pokemon-themed flashcards I made for her a month or so ago… she’s working hard on those multiplication facts!
This is a homemade board with several start squares, several win spaces, go back one space, triple move, double move, lose a turn and things like that. We’ve used this same board for years!!
We also have a printable version of the game board above here: Ultimate Math Gameboard for Any Math Fact Practice.
She used the multiplication cards below, figured out the problem and moved around the board using the higher number on the card (rather than going around 44 times!).
Meanwhile, I’ve been working on a new St. Patrick’s Day multiplication math pack for her and will be sharing those (hopefully) in the next day or so!

Here are some fun outdoor math games that we played when the weather warmed up last year. They are good for *any* math practice!:
