Here's a great idea for multiplication facts
...and like any great idea it was stolen from another teacher (Mrs P-W, two rooms down) who found it on a web-site somewhere.
For the day, all kids in Year 4 were given a sticky label with a multiplication fact written on it - this became their new name for the day.
Here's 48 and 64....
...and 108 having a chat with 56....
...and 63 with 144!
We all had to use our new "names" for the whole day. It was a great way to get the kids to think multiplication and to remember a few of those harder facts.
Teachers also participated - I became Mr 42 (or 6 x 7). (Douglas Adams fans may see the significance)
