Multiplication Bombardment (Submitted by Shawna) NEW
Spread paper plates out on the floor. Write multiplication problems on index cards (or use
flashcards) and place upside down on plates. Players throw bean bags or paper airplanes at
plates, turn over the card and say the product. If correct, he keeps the card and it is
replaced with a new card. If wrong, turn card back over for another player to try to hit.
Player with the most correct “hits” when card are out (or time is up) wins.
POW (Submitted by Rob and Kim) NEW
Materials: set of flash cards, postit notes
This is a quick & easy flash card game that allows students of all abilities an equal chance to
win. Write the word "POW!" on several postit notes (approx. one POW to every 810 flash
cards) and stick the POW notes on flash cards throughout the deck. As you go around the
room, students take turns answering one fact at a time. The object of the game is to collect
the most flash cards, by answering the facts correctly. If they answer correctly, they get to
keep the card. If they answer incorrectly, they do not get to keep the card. If their fact has a
"POW!" on it, they surrender all of the cards that they have accumulated so far. Play
continues until you reach the end of the flash card deck or after a predetermined amount of
time has passed. Students love the randomness of the game and how quickly the game can
change.
Break My Eggs
Write numbers in the bottom of egg cartons.
Put two manipulatives in the egg carton.
Close the lid and have the students shake the carton and multiply the two number together.
They can play as teams and keep score
FACTS BASEBALL (Contributed by Lisa)
Choose two teams.
Set up 3 bases, teacher is the pitcher (with flashcards)
Students are shown fact card, he states the fact and the answer. If he is correct he moves
to 1st base. I he misses it, he goes to the end of the line for the next student to try. (use a
different flashcard).
Each time a student answers correctly, the runners move around the bases. The only time
the team scores is if someone makes it all around to home plate. You may want to add
some doubles, triples or homerun cards (challenging) for a variation. Three strikes and
you're out The next team plays. Use the chalkboard (or a homemade board) to keep up
with the score and outs and innings.
When a student misses a fact, I can guarantee you that they will not forget it again.
When I missed one, I would figure out the answer when I sat down and would never miss it
again. It was embarrassing.
The team that is up to bat stands in a line. The other team sits in their desks until their turn
to bat. We changed teams every 9 weeks so we could name our team.
This game can be used for any math game using flashcards ( Addition, subtraction,
multiplication, and division).
If you like baseball you will love this game

Play “Domino Deal” for Math Review!
Math Facts
All ages
The time for mastering math facts is now! Your child can get a review of addition, subtraction,
multiplication and division facts in an interactive game using dominoes you probably have. Give
your student a much needed break from those drill sheets and have some fun at the same time.
“Domino Deal” will motivate your child to practice math facts and prepare her/him for the
more challenging math that lies ahead!
What You Need:
· dominoes
· paper
· pencil
What You Do:
Level 1:
Deal a stack of dominoes to each player. Player 1 begins by pulling a domino from his stack and
adding the top number to the bottom number on the domino. For example, if the domino’s top
number is 4 and bottom number is 2, Player 1 adds 4 +2 = 6. Player 2 repeats this process using
a domino from her stack. Both players should write the sum of their dominoes on a piece of
paper.
Level 2:
Both players multiply the two sums together. The player who calls out the correct answer first
wins the round. Continue playing in this way until one player wins 10 rounds!
Level 3:
Take the game to a higher level by adding a couple of steps. Both players should pull two
dominoes from their stacks and add to get a total for each domino. Next, players multiply the
two sums from their dominoes and compare answers. The player with the highest number after
multiplying wins the round. Continue playing in this way until one player wins 10 rounds.
Level 4:
Practice division facts by reinforcing the concept of “fact families” while playing. For example,
if your child pulls two dominoes whose sums are 5 and 3, then multiplies to get 15, remind her
that 3, 5 and 15 make up a fact family:
3 x 5 = 15
5 x 3 = 15
15 ÷ 3 = 5
15 ÷ 5 = 3
Yet another option!: Practice subtraction facts by playing yet another version of the game.
Instead of adding the two numbers on the dominoes, subtract the smaller number from the
larger number. Then multiply both differences and compare the answers for a winner
