Groups of Multiplication Mat

There are many types of math to work on as kids get older and multiplication can be a hard tone to do.

I like to change up how we learn or review our learning of multiplication and one way to do that is to work on groups of something.

And that is what today’s math printable is all about. This free Groups of Multiplication Mat has a fun way to work on multiplication in groups with a hands-on learning mat.

This printable has a few parts. It has two types of mats with and without numbers. These are the mats you make the groups on. They are simple pages so you can print them on white cardstock or color cardstock.

There is a set of groups of multiplication flashcards. These cards have numbers from 1 to 12 in the printable for each number. You can see I printed each number of a mix of color cardstock. This helps me know what number is in what group. I put them all on a ring to keep trace of the cards.

There is also a spinning mat you can use. It has numbers 1 to 12 on two spinners. You can use clear spinner or paperclip and pencil with the spinner.

You spin both spinners and get two numbers. Then you build those groups of numbers on the mat. We use unifix cubes for this, but you can use any hands-on items.

If you don’t want to use the spinner then use the flashcards. I like to put out 12 cards for them to work on. You can start with the same number. You could just do the groups of 2.

Another way to use the mat is with dry erase markers. You can put the page in a sheet protector and then draw anything on the squares.

There is a sheet that has you write the groups of sentences and then the multiplication sentence that matches. This is a great way to work into more multiplication. You can use the spinner for the numbers.
