Ideas for practical activities

Write out the multiples of the times table you are practicing with your child and lay them on the floor. Ask your child to jump onto the answer to the calculation you say. E.g. If you say 4x3, they should jump onto 12.

 

Make three set of cards.

Set A - has the the calculation on one side and the answer on the other.

Set B - has the calculations 

Set C - has the answers

To practice multiplication

Lay out set A with answers face up and show your child cards from Set B one at a time. They choose the card that shows the answer and checks the back matches the question you just asked.

To practice division

Lay out set A with calculation face up and show your child cards from Set C one at a time. They choose the card that shows the calculation to the answer you have shown them and checks the back matches the answer you just showed them.
