- Use these cards as a whole class warm-up activity or during numeracy rotations.

- Use the multiplication language cards (groups of) before moving on to the multiplication symbol cards.
- Print and laminate for long term use.
- This resource also includes spare blank cards for you to write on extra number sentences.
- Use these cards as a ‘constant’ during daily numeracy activities and task time.
- Use the laminated number cards to represent the final answers to the number sentences.
- Make smaller copies for children to cut and paste into their maths books. Children then draw a pictorial representation of each number sentence.
- As with the addition / subtraction relationship – at a later stage you could also introduce the relationship between multiplication and division. Reverse the multiplication games to create division equations. For example, after making 6 groups of 3 popsticks to make 18, use this set up to create 18 shared by 6 is 3 each.
- Use these cards with our Math Activities Baseboard Kits.
- Children find all the number sentences which equal a particular number. Use the numeral cards – choose a numeral, children then find all the equation cards which equal this numeral.
- Use string, small hoops, or plates to create a ‘group’ template, then use different objects to represent the number sentences.
- Ask children to pick a card then connect plastic blocks or unifix cubes to make ‘rows’ or group pop sticks with rubber bands. Alternatively, thread beads onto string grouping by colour, size or shape.
- Children could also circle or colour in a number line or grid paper to represent each group.
