As students work to memorize their multiplication facts, I try provide many different opportunities for them to practice. The students set a goal. Once they know which facts they want to memorize, I give them the freedom to choose how they will accomplish their goal.
Some students love using technology. I have a class website that links to games and videos that I think can help them. They love the website Multiplication.com I like that they can target a specific goal and practice the facts they need for that goal.
One way I encourage them to practice is by asking them which multiplication facts are easiest for them. Of course, the answer is usually 2s, 5s, and 10s. When I ask why, they tell me they know how to count by those numbers.
This year, as some students were trying to learn how to count by 8s, I decided to make somethings to help them.
