Once your child is done working on these printable single digit multiplication worksheets, you could play a few games!

  • Multiplication Hopscotch: Here’s a twist on the classic game of Hopscotch. Once you’ve made your hopscotch grids with chalk on the pavement, fill each grid with a number. Then, call out a multiplication problem like 5 X 3, and have your child find the right number to hop to! You could make this game more challenging for older kids by filling each grid with objects that denote a number instead of writing down the number itself. For example, for a grid with number 2 on it, you could place 2 toys!
  • Time Table Buzz: Pick a time table and practice it with this fun game. If you’ve picked the 5 times table, kids must say numbers in order and as soon as a child lands on a multiple of 5, they must say “buzz” instead of the number!
  • Multiplication Cards: As the name of the game suggests, all kids have to do is keep drawing pairs of cards and multiply them. You could split kids into two teams to play this awesome game! Whichever team finds the maximum number of right answers to multiplication problems wins.

Multiplication Made Easy

  1. Avoid memorization: Relate multiplication to addition when you teach your child. Starting with memorizing multiplication tables might be challenging. They might struggle with it and this could demotivate them. Instead, show your child what happens when you repeatedly add the same number over and over.
  2. Multiply by 0 and 1: Teach kids about the properties of 0 before you move on to other numbers. These help build a better foundation for learning multiplication.
  3. Talk about the Commutative Property: No matter what order you write your numbers in, the product of two numbers remains the same. Teach your kids about this commutative property to encourage them that multiplication can be simple.
  4. Set Time to Practice Verbally or in Writing: Giving your kids some time to practice the multiplication tables, both verbally and in writing will help build math confidence. You could even make a catchy song of it.
  5. Always Visualize: Try to use objects as often as you can when you teach kids multiplication. Merely listening to you or reading about multiplication might drain them. It’s always better (and fun!) to use objects that appeal to them. You could use toy cars, soft toys, etc!
