I made these Multiplication flashcards for my students and use another copy as award bookmarks. They are priced at $2.00 and also include a large poster version.


Another great way to help students to memorize these facts are through music. Check out these multiplication songs on CD.

Thanks for the tips! I'm going to be tutoring a 4th grader at the end of the month 2 days a week who is struggling with basic multiplication. These ideas will be helpful! :-)

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
