Do you have a child who is working on multiplication facts? This free printable multiplication dice activity is perfect for reviewing multiplication facts in a fun, hands-on way. My daughter loves dice games, so this has been her favorite math activity for the past couple weeks! We have been having so much fun with our favorite double-dice.
To prep: Print the multiplication pages and laminate them to use many times.
To use: Select a printable. For kids who are new to multiplication, use the mat that has only one problem on it.
This will help them focus on solving one problem at a time and prevent them from being overwhelmed.
Roll the double-dice. Write the number on the large dice in the large box and the number on the small dice in the small box. Then, solve the problem and write the product in the final box.
For kids who need to work on multiplication fact fluency, use the alternate sheet that has space for 14 problems at a time.
Let them work at their own pace or pair up two similarly skilled kids and have them race against each other to finish the page.
Only one student? Have her race against herself.
My daughter does not *love* math, but she went so fast through this activity! It showed me she is a lot more fluent in her facts than she was letting on… I guess I will have to challenge her a bit. *wink*
I’ve included a pink and an orange set of printables, so that kids can pick their favorite. Involving them in even simple choices like the color of their work page, helps them to take ownership of their learning.
Do you have these double-dice? If not, get the double-dice here. There are so many great activities you can do with them!
