Multiplication Practice Cards {the Best!}

Do you remember learning your "times tables?"  I remember that they were on the wall in the form of paper ice cream cones in 2nd grade.  As I was trying to help Jay learn his times tables, I wanted something easy to work with and that was portable.
 
This is what I came up with.  I made these Multiplication Practice Cards for Jay about a year ago. 
These {little} houses are easy to make and made learning them easier.
 
 
 
The reason I love them and think they are {the best little idea} I've had for awhile, is because you don't have to haul around a whole stack of flash cards.  Just 12 little houses make up the whole set.

Also, it's easy to see how the numbers compound.  I think that makes the multiplication make more sense.  When Jay was learning them I would tuck a house or two in my purse when we went to the doctor's office or give him one to look over in the car if we had a bunch of errands to run.  
 
 
I was going through some math supplies and found them again.  So Kay had a fun time quizzing him on them :)
 


To make {This Little Project} you need:

3 pieces of brown construction paper
6 pieces of white paper
6 pieces of colored paper
a stapler
an exacto/craft knife

1-Start by cutting the white and colored pieces in half so they are half sheets of paper (8.5x 5.5.)  These will make the front and back of the "houses."


2-  Cut 12 triangles of brown paper to fit your "houses."

3- Use your craft knife to cut "doors" into the colored pieces of the houses.  I just eyeballed this and then used the first one as a template to make the others.  Remember to just cut 3 sides of the door.  You need 12 doors on each "house."

4- Now staple the white papers to the back of the colored "houses" and staple the roof on.

5- Title the houses (1-12) and write the problems on the outside of the "doors" and then the answers inside the door.
 
 
 
Your child can quiz himself and check to see if he is right.  Or his little sister could too!


I love it when learning gets a {little} easier :)

Most beginning guitar teachers naturally look around to see what other teachers are doing in hopes that copying the approaches of others will help them build their businesses. The bad news is, MOST guitar teachers are unsuccessful. This means that when you copy what other teachers are doing you are only setting yourself up for the same failure. joneruizguitar
