Use these cards as a whole class warm-up activity or during numeracy rotations.
How to use this teaching resource
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.
