Are your kids learning multiplication facts? One of my kids is in the beginning stages of learning times tables at our house. We played a fun little array multiplication grid game recently that helped teach the concept really well.
This game is easy and cheap to put together. You may already have the supplies available.
What is Array Multiplication?
The multiplication grid game is a great game for teaching about array multiplication. Array multiplication is when you arrange objects, pictures, or numbers into columns and rows, for instance three rows of four apples.
Arrays are so useful when trying to teach multiplication concepts. We like to use small objects- counting bears, beads, mini erasers, or pennies to help teach this concept, too.
This game is a simple & easy way to teach array multiplication through using graph paper.
How to Play the Multiplication Grid Game:
To play the multiplication grid game, you will need 1 sheet of graph paper (laminate it if you want to make it reusable), 1 pair of dice, and some dry-erase markers. Optional for kids new to multiplication, give kids a multiplication table to help them get the totals.
It can be played with 2-4 players.
