Good Times Await with Multiplication Worksheets
Most children struggle with multiplication for a reason: It is a really difficult skill to master. And just when a kid gains a firm grasp on one multiplication concept, another one is introduced that’s just as tough (if not more so). So what’s the best way to remain one step ahead of the multiplication freight train? Well, in this case, the answer is simple: practice.
That doesn’t just mean memorizing multiplication tables (although that’s important). Rather, parents should consider turning everyday activities and objects into interesting (but instructional) multiplication problems. For example, practice skip counting by pouring a bunch of nickels on the counter and asking your child to count by fives, then do the same with dimes and have her count by 10s. Or next time your kid is watching a football game, ask him how many points his favorite team will have if they score five touchdowns and how many points the other team will have if they kick three field goals.
