I would like to share a great warm up game for maths time for students who know their times tables. It is great for promoting quick thinking and fast recall of these facts.
You need a multi-sided dice. This will be the number you multiply by. Choose a 6, 10, 12 (or 20 if you want to be able to go up to 12 x but dont have the right dice). Laminate or slide into a protective sleeve to use again.
Roll the dice once (or have the teacher pick) what is the number to multiply by each time. Here I have gone with 5.
Roll the dice. Each time, multiply your initial number written in the corner by the number rolled. In the pic, I would be doing the equation 5 x 3 (3 being the number rolled).
Continue until there is a winning number.
