Printable Multiplication Tic-Tac-Toe Game
But first, let me tell you about our newest obsession. Do you have a little one struggling to learn their multiplication facts? Check out MULTIbandz!
My youngest son was pretty worried about entering third grade this year. He dreaded having to learn all those “really REALLY hard” multiplication tables. Thankfully, there are some fun tips and tricks to make learning your multiplication facts easier and even fun!
What are MULTIbandz?
These trendy, colorful bracelets are a great way for your kids to learn their multiplication facts while on the go. Slip one on their wrist and remind them that they can practice memorizing their multiplication facts while in the car, sitting at the doctors office or even waiting for the teacher to pass out worksheets.
Each silicone bracelet features a different set of multiplication tables, such as 1×1=1, 2×1=2, 3×1=3 and so on, all the way through 12. When your child has memorized the problems on their wristband, reward them with a new one! The goal is to “GO FOR GOLD!” and reach the gold wristband featuring the x12 tables, but as an extra reward for learning the first 5 sets, wristbands 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 glow-in-the-dark.
Rylan has been wearing his MULTIbandz to school and all of his friends want a set of their own. They’ve been a big hit!
Even my older kids are loving these MULTIbandz. They like to test their multiplication skills, coming up with fun “punishments” for each other if they forget the answer, such as “run to the tree and back” or “do 10 jumping jacks really fast.”
If you’d like more information on MULTIbandz, find these bracelets on Amazon.
As always, give your children plenty of encouragement as they learn each new times table. And don’t forget to have fun!
But back to the Multiplication Tic-Tac-Toe game –
Of course, we couldn’t let you go without a free printable (because that’s what we do!). My kids are obsessed with Tic-Tac-Toe, so why not combine their favorite game with a little multiplication fun?!
The rules are simple –
Just like a regular game of Tic Tac Toe the object is to get three in a row. Only, in this version, the player must first solve the multiplication problem before claiming their square. They can then write in the answer to the multiplication problem in the square (using different colors for each player) or claim their square in the typical X’s and O’s style.
