When your kids are having trouble with their multiplication facts it can be frustrating for you both. And when they don’t like practicing their facts, it’s even harder! No more! This no prep thanksgiving multiplication pack will provide entertainment and fact practice at the same time! Plus it’s no prep so just print and go!
I wanted to create this pack first and foremost for Baloo. He’s getting so good with his facts but needs a little more practice. He does not do well with boring activities. He just zones out!
So I needed something a bit more exciting. The answer is, of course, candy. He will do worksheets for candy. Whatever it takes! But also, having some visually engaging pages with activities that are more than “do these facts” can help him.
I’m going to feature some of the pages. This is not everything in the pack. There are 15 separate activities in the pack with a total of 21 pages. Plus a separate download for minute timed tests.
Pages of the No Prep Thanksgiving Multiplication Math Pack
Turkey Spinner Multiplication! Spin, multiply, and color! You can use a dot marker or color in the turkey. For kids who enjoy coloring, I would do the latter!
Multiplication Number Line! I love this visual with the jumps. I feel like it helps the understanding of multiplication in general.
5 in a Row! Basically BINGO with dice. Roll two dice, multiply, add your equation to the bottom, and cover the appropriate space. When they get 5 in a row, they win!
This is a smaller version of the times tables for kids who may feel overwhelmed with the entire thing! Just covers a few numbers.
My favorite page is the Multiplication Search. We started by solving all of the problems and then searching for them.
It was fairly challenging! But there was a lot of repeating the fact while searching for it “8 times 3 equals 24…8 times 3 equals 24…”.
