we practice our times tables every day for 510 minutes at the start of math. i have them focus on 6's for several weeks then move to 7's, 8's, 9's, and then 12's. we do something different every day.
a couple activities:
*arrays: i cut a piece of grid paper to the appropriate size for the factori think the size of the squares is .5 cetimeter??? kids are in pairs; each have their own paper, they take turns rolling a die marked 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 12. whatever they roll, they outline that many rows of 6's. then they write the equation (8x6=48 inside). the person who fills up paper first is winner (or has the most when time is called)
*physical times tables. i call out problem "8x1", they call out 8, then i repeat while we draw an 8 with a part of our body. go through all the 8's.
