How to Play These Fun Multiplication Games
This is a simple BINGO game, but the goal is that every child is working on their facts. In my house, one guy tends to shout out the answers and the other little one takes advantage of it. So here is how we played it so that both my boys were practicing their facts.
First, pass a card out to each player.
Next, have each one quickly give the answer to the expression.
Now, they get to mark the answer on their bingo cards.
Then you get to pick up the cards and pass another expression to each player.
This continues until someone has five in a row.
Learning multiplication facts does not have to be boring. It can be fun. And adding games to practice time makes it so much more fun. I hope your children enjoy this game as much as we have.
