Looking for an easy way to practice multiplication for kids? This game only takes two minutes to set up, but can be played again and again to challenge kids and incease multiplication fact fluency. Plus, you can adapt it to work on other skills as well!
The students read the passage independently, then travel around the classroom answering the questions on butcher paper. There can be 3-4 stations with each station asking a question about a story element (i.e. one on characters, one on setting etc). Each stations has enough squares for each student in the class to write their answer. The question can be posted on the butcher paper, or on the wall. Students must support their answer with evidence from the story.
