Multiplying can be a challenging math topic to dive into. Try having fun with them by using these ant life cycle multiplication cards. While I have tons of counting cards, I still this is a fun way to jump into multiplication.
You can have the student clip the correct answer with a clothes pin, place a counter or manipulative on top of the answer, laminate them and have them write with a dry erase marker. My kids enjoy using the clothes pins still so it’s an added fine motor activity paired with math.
These printables include the 2 and 3 times tables up to 12. I was able to get it up to the 5 times table but will need to figure out a new way to do the larger numbers since they can get quite high. The rest of the printables including I spy and skip counting sheets are included in the Living Life and Learning Lab.
My son had a tough time with multiplication so we did a lot of skip counting to get things going first. When my oldest was younger we had an online game that taught him how to multiply but it is no longer available to individuals, it was a wonderful learning tool for my son who loves video games and it made learning math fun.
