Seven Fun and Easy Ways to Motivate Students to Practice the Multiplication Facts!

Are you struggling with ways to motivate your students or your own children to practice those multiplication facts? Well, I have seven fun and easy ways to motivate students you can implement right now!

activities for practicing multiplication facts:

1. Call the math practice a GAME! Kids love games, so tell them they are going to play a game!

3. Give each child a blank piece of paper and call it “Sticker Sheet”. Then let them choose a sticker as they complete a problem or play the game! I like to buy stickers from the Dollar Spot at Target! Stickers are great motivation when they’re practicing multiplication facts.
