I wish I'd known about multiplication games when I was in school. I think it would have made a big difference.

You see between second and third grades I changed schools. At my new school all the kids knew their multiplication tables. I was the only one that didn't.

My mom tried to get me to practice my times tables. I just wouldn't do it.

As a result, I didn't learn the times tables until I was in the sixth grade.

This won't happen to your child.

Why?

Because you are taking the time to learn how to help your child learn with these multiplication games.

I've got just a few games and activities for now but my site is growing every week. Check out the multiplication games below. Your child will love them!

Whisper Counting

This multiplication game is a fun way to help children learn their multiplication tables.

Draw a grid with numbers in it. Make the width equal to the number you want to skip count. (In the example chart below we skip count by 4’s.)

Count the individual squares out loud with your children. Start with the lowest number and end with the highest.

Count out loud again and this time say the skip count number louder than the rest. In my example you’d say “one, two, three, FOUR, five, six, seven, EIGHT etc.

Repeat several times each time saying the skip count number louder and the other numbers softer.

Finally, finish by saying only the skip count numbers and none of the others.

Variations Of This Multiplication Game:

You can clap on the skip count numbers to provide emphasis.
