Learners use different resources to practice multiplication by making arrays

# Counters (e.g. bottle tops)

## Pick up six (×)

Learners practice multiplication by placing counters on the board.

## Pick up four

Players use dice and counters to help them practice addition.

## Two clips – multiplication

Players improve their multiplication skills.

## Two clips – addition

Players team up to improve their addition skills.

## Bonds to 5

Learners use a 5 frame or hands to practice numbers that make up 5

## Race through 10

Learners try to identify number names and sequences.

## Array card layout

Learners use counters or cards to build as many different arrays as possible in order to understand multiplication

## Build arrays

Players use counters to build arrays when they roll a dice.

## How many more?

Learners compare numbers using one-to-one matching of counters.

## Spill the beans

Players use beans to practice their bonds to ten. Ten beans are placed in a cup and a certain amount is spilled out, the players have to say how many they think are left in the cup.

## Get through, five alive

Played one team/person against another. Each team gets 5 counters (so need to have two different colour counters). The team that gets the most counters to the end wins.

## Friendly tens

Players make 10 to add. They use the board to identify how much is needed to make 10. One of of the values has to be 10 before adding.

## Build a Snake

Players learn to add or subtract using bottle tops. The learners try to build a snake using bottle tops.

## Snakes and Ladders

Players use a dice to play snakes and ladders. They have to shout out the number they are at before they roll again. The winner is the one who gets to 100 first.
