A set of loop cards (x2 – x12) to practise times tables for the whole class or for small groups in station teaching!
Times Tables Loop Cards
Times Tables are a vital part of many mathematical concepts particularly as children to 5th and 6th class. If the children know their times tables it gives them an automatic headstart when learning new concepts as they are not held back due to a lack of knowledge with their tables.
In my class we do a lot of tables work at the beginning of each lesson from writing out the multiples of a given table, using tables boards and answering quick fire tables questions or playing games with tables.
I also have a set of Jenga which the children love to use when practising their times tables.
Times tables Loop Cards
These are a massive hit in my classroom. My friend actually reminded me about them as she was using them in her room. She divides her class in two. The first half start with the loop cards (on a given table) and see how quickly they can complete them. Then the second half do it and the team that do it the quickest win.
