While you may be able to teach basic multiplication sooner I have found the optimal age to be between 2nd and 3rd grade. Its no secret that multiplication can be difficult for some students and you will often find yourself revising and repeating multiplication lessons to recap as the difficulty increases.
As a result, I’ve found that most parents go through a lot of workbooks and worksheets. The cost of which can quickly add up. So I’ve been on a mission to create some of my own that you can print off using your home computer
In this case, I’ve gone with a winter theme. These snowmen have purposely been left blank so you can color them in as an extra activity if you wish to do so.
There are 11 sheets which make up this complete workbook. They vary from easy to hard difficulty and can be printed off as many times as you like.
Consider making these an in the car activity or simply adding an extra layer of protection to them by laminating each sheet using a laminator and some laminating paper. You can buy both items on Amazon at a really good price – ours must be over 10 years old!
Then simply use a dry erase marker and you can wipe away the answers and retest the child as many times as you like without needing to print out an extra workbook (although it still might be worth bookmarking this page just in case).
Alongside some great worksheets, you’re going to need some tutorials and quality games up your sleeves to make learning this often difficult subject fun. That’s where books such as Games for Mathematics comes in. This was one of the first books I purchased as a homeschooling mom and I’ve zero regrets, seriously, this book has saved my bacon more than once.
