Only the best maths games manage to hit both areas. Here is a real fun game from the My Little Poppies website that will help children practice all of their Times Tables.
I love to practice math facts and concepts through play. My kids have an absolute blast playing and have no idea they are learning!
This simple Times Table game is a lot like the game of ‘Hot Potato’. In this version, dice are passed around a circle of players and everyone hopes they don’t end up with all of the dice!
Noisy, fast and great fun.
If you are wondering about the 12-sided dice, you can substitute them for a mini pack of 1-12 cards (see the download button, below). Of course, if you are using number cards then you can select which numbers go in – only use the 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 11 and 12 cards (for example) if those are the tables your children are working with.
You could also use ‘normal’ 6-sided dice if you want to play with multiples up to 6×6.
However, if you really want to play with 12-sided dice – and they do add a great ‘feel’ to the game (and have hundreds of other uses), you can find them in good toy shops or here – 12-sided dice at AmazonDownload two sets of 1-12 Cards
