5 Ways to Teach Multiplication Facts During Summer Break
Are you using the Summer break to work on math facts? Working on multiplication facts doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, there are some simple ways to practice while having fun.
Take advantage of songs
There are many multiplication and skip counting songs on YouTube to help with number sense. We are big fans of Mr. Demaio and his multiplication songs. He does a great job of making it fun. Add in multiplication songs that can be played in car rides or in the house during the summer months.
Play math fact games
Whether playing math fact bingo, multiplication matching, or other math fact games, you are sure to help cement these skills. Take some time to look into different math fact games to help work on these skills.
Have a skip counting challenge
When working on skip counting or math facts, randomly challenge your kids to work on them. The challenge can be to add one more fact on, learn just one more fact than they previously knew, or just outperforming their previous skills. Having a skip counting or math fact challenge can be a fun way to practice.
Do math facts in a different way
Using things like legos, playdough, or linking blocks to build math facts can be a fun way to practice math facts. For some children, the hands-on learning component can help them to better remember these facts. For some variations, write the math facts in shaving cream or flour for a different sensory experience.
Play online math games
There are many online math game sites that will help your child practice. We are big fans of prodigy math games as they are helpful. However, you could also use a free math facts drilling game to help practice doing math facts quickly.
