In honor of the 2nd week of the Virtual Curriculum Fair I’ve got a special treat for you! Free, full-color printable triangle cards for practicing the 6x6 to 12x12 multiplication facts.
I recommend printing these on cardstock. Laminate if you wish. I detest printables that require me to cut all the way around each individual object---it's messy, time consuming, and paper wasting---so these are designed to minimize cutting. The lines are a medium gray to make it a little less obvious if you are little off the line, too. ;) Each card covers one fact family, so you can use the 6, 7, 42 card to practice 6x7=42, 7x6=42, 42/6=7, 42/7=6. Each factor has its own color and products are a combination of the two factors on that card (the product is the color of one factor outlined by the other factor). Hopefully this will help your visual kiddos.
Have your child cover one number with a thumb or clothespin to test herself (self-checking).
Have her copy out the four math sentences for each card.
Match up like products.
I’m sure that you can think of some other ideas.
Note: This is a doc file (for some reason it didn’t want to convert well to pdf, but it converted pretty well to doc)---you should be able to print directly from google docs. Let me know if you have any trouble with it.
