What is Multiplication?
It is one of the four basic operations of arithmetic.
Multiplication means to add groups of items together. Another way to say that is that multiplication is repeated addition of the same number.
And this game is working on learning the multiplication math facts in a fun and different way. You have the equations on the outside of the board and the answers on the inside of the board.
Each of the boards has multiplication for 1 to 12. Each board works on one group of multiplication at a time.
You can see an example of the board below.
There is also a recording sheet that kids can use. It allows space for the board and several of the equations.

How to use the Multiplication Game Boards
One of the first things I love about these board games is that they are black and white. This means you can change the colors of them during the year!
You move around the board and cover numbers that are the solution for the multiplication equation. You want to get 4 in a row if you can. You can see we are using mini erasers for the moving around the outside and glass gems to cover the middle. This allows us to reuse the games.
You can have two players at the same time. You can use the erasers for the outside and dot markers in the middle. If you want to reuse the page then try different colors of clear counters or unfix cubes for the middle.
Don’t forget that you can record what problems they do on the board. This allows you to reuse the boards over and over.
Another fun way to use the board is to put the board in a sheet protector and use a dry erase marker to circle the answers.
There are loads of ways to use these and they are fun for kids to review their multiplication math facts!
