Learners use different resources to practice multiplication by making arrays

# Activity

## Add Five Cards

Learners practice addition and addition strategies

## Maths 24

## Venn diagram

Learners practice sorting and clarifying using Venn diagram

## Two clips – addition

Players team up to improve their addition skills.

## Salute: × and ÷

Players in groups of threes use playing cards to practice multiplication and division.

## Fraction pictionary

Players use playing cards to practice fractions and division skills

## Bunny ears

Players use their fingers to show numbers.

## Addition bingo

Players use dice to practice addition skills by calculating the sum of the rolled dice.

## Multiplication bingo

Players use dice to practice multiplication skills by calculating the product of the rolled dice.

## 5 and …

Learners use hands or beads on a string to recognise numbers from 6 to 10 as being made of 5 and another number.

## Bonds to 5

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

## Multiplication game

Learners practice addition and multiplication using dice.

## Find arrays

Learners identify the arrays in the pictures and complete the tables on each activity sheet .

## Bee arrays

Players get 3 or 4 hexagons touching to each other in a line or other configuration as shown on the game board (3 will take less time and may be more accessible for Grade 1 learners)

## 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 close to 100?

The goal is to fill up the grid to get it as full as possible while using the space as efficiently as possible. Draw arrays on the grid to see how close you can get to 100. How many squares do you have empty?

## Skip count mazes

Learners must find a way through the mazes by counting in 2s, 3, 5s and 10s

## 12 or 24

Learners formulate addition, subtraction, division and multiplication sums from 12 and 24.

## Double and halves (×2 and ÷2)

Learners identify numbers that are double of the other.

## How many more?

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

## Make 10 memory

A version of memory where players must find cards that add up to 10.

## Make 10 (Cards)

Learners use playing cards to practice numbers that make up 10. The winner identifies the most pairs.

## Total three

Players take turns to roll the two dice. Do calculations in addition, subtraction and multiplication each time they roll.

## Close to 100

Players use a pack of cards to practice addition. In pairs learners deal out six cards each. Uses four cards to make the highest two digit numbers that have the biggest number possible close to 100 when added together.

## Nice or nasty

Players use understanding of place value to compete against their partners to make the largest number using playing cards.

## 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.

## Faces and Puzzle Grid

FACES: Players use the clues to work out which name goes

with each face. PUZZLES: find what number

each picture stands for.

## Build a Snake

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

## Beetle

The goal is to throw dice to help draw a beetle insect. Each body part represents a specific number on the dice, which will determine the final score.

## Cross out singles

Players use a dice to fill in the squares, they then add the rows, columns and diagonal. Numbers that are shown once are to be crossed out. The winner has the highest final score.

## Pyramid sums

This activity provides the learners with lots of practice in adding and subtracting. When a number is placed at the top of the pyramid, they must understand how to use addition to help work out subtraction.

## Blind Duplo

Players use duplo blocks to form various shapes in pairs, while one is blindfolded. The one blindfolded will feel the shape using finger to count remaining circles in order to duplicate the shape.

## Make 10, 20 or 30 (Grid)

Learners find numbers that add up to 10, 20 or 30 in different shapes. Learners

can write sums circled using as many different ways.

## Shakedown

This is a game about counting backwards from 10 and shaking your arms and legs at the same time. The whole class does the actions at the same time

## Salute – addition

Players in groups of threes use playing cards to practice addition and subtraction. The captain gives each player a card and they put it on their forehead (salute). The captain tells them the total of the two cards. The players have to guess the number on their card.
