Math Multiplication Class Games

We play "Around the World" almost every day in my math class. While the students love to play, I'd like to find something different to do to practice our multiplication facts as a class.

Do you play any other fun games similar to "Around the World"?

We play my version of bingo.

I fold unlined paper into 25 squares.
I place a list of products on the board and the students copy one product in each square. The students choose where to put the product as there are no traditional columns.
At the beginning of the year there are only 25 products but as the year progresses there are more than 25 products on the board and the children chose which ones to use on their paper.
Each product can only be used once.


I call out the fact (6x4)
Class repeats the fact and the answer (6x4=24)
When student has 5 in a row they call bingo
(there is no free space)


I have sets of plastic bingo markers that we use.
While we are playing the only thing on your desk is the paper and the markers. No pencils or pens allowed.

We play one game each day and reuse the card for a week or two. (students put their name on the back of the card and it is collected after the daily game. otherwise we lose too much time with lost or missing cards.)

I have inexpensive pencils and bookmarks as prizes.

What about the "I have, who has?" game? Are you familiar with that? It's quick and simple.

My kids love Multiplication 4 in a row. I have boards laminated that stay in my room that my kids can get and play with a partner anytime. I attached the document that has a copy of the board and the rules for the game.

Math Baseball!!

Divide the class into 2 teams they line up side by side in 2 lines. Choose 3 bases (sets of desks, corners, etc).

Team A bats...I hold up a flashcard and the person at bat (first one in line) has 5 seconds to say the correct answer. If they get it right they go to first base. Team B is mouthing wrong answers to try and trip up the batter. Play coninues like this until Team A gets 3 outs or 5 runs. Then it switches and Team B bats. Every once and a while I'll throw in a double or triple flashcard.

My kids also really love arond the world... anything to make math more fun

Write multiplication problems on popsicle sticks, on 5 of the sticks write the word "buzz", put sticks in a cup, students sit in a circle and take turns picking a stick out of the cup, if they can answer the multiplication problem correctly they keep the stick if not they put it back, if they pick a "buzz" stick they have to put all their accumulated sticks back in the cup. Go until all sticks are gone or your just out of time, student with most sticks wins.
I've haven't played this with this year's class yet, but the last couple years my classes loved this game.

Thanks Lola! That sounds so fun! I have a ton of popsicle sticks that I can use up for that game.
