I think DD’s going to love this one! She’s working hard to memorize her multiplication facts and I put together different types of practice pages for the next couple of weeks. There are 8 pages. As always, it is free to download.
St. Patrick’s Day Multiplication Pack
I hope someone else find this useful! If you do, I’d love to hear from you here or over at my Facebook page.
By the way, on my facebook page I keep a running list of all the posts I’ve done. You might want to take a glance over there to see a quick synopsis of all the posts I’ve done the past few months. It’s a quick easy way to see what we’ve been up to lately.

Last week DD played many, many rounds of Fast Track. This is an idea I got years ago from Peggy Kaye’s wonderful book, Games for Math. We used the little Pokemon-themed flashcards I made for her a month or so ago… she’s working hard on those multiplication facts!
This is a homemade board with several start squares, several win spaces, go back one space, triple move, double move, lose a turn and things like that. We’ve used this same board for years!!
She used the multiplication cards below, figured out the problem and moved around the board using the higher number on the card (rather than going around 44 times!).
Meanwhile, I’ve been working on a new St. Patrick’s Day multiplication math pack for her and will be sharing those (hopefully) in the next day or so!

Although I have a couple more posts about our trip, I thought I’d first share a couple of the games I made for the kids for Valentine’s Day since it’s quickly approaching. As always, these games are free to download. The first set are multiplication worksheets and game boards to practice the 4s and 6s times tables.
**DD only started working on these today (Monday) and I saw there was an error on her paper. I corrected it and re-posted the packet.
There are five multiplication worksheets. The basic templates look like this…
Download the free Valentine’s Multiplication Worksheets.
I also made a set of multiplication game boards for DD to practice her 4s and 6s times tables.
How To Play:
- Cut out the game cards on page 3 and shuffle. Place them all in a pile.
- Each player needs one token to move around the board. Place token on start.
- Take the top game card and multiply it by 4 (or by 6 if using the 6s gameboard).
- Move to the next available space with that product. For example, if the player draws a 6, multiply 6×4 and move to the next available 24 space on the board.
- The first player to arrive at finish with one of the three numbers indicated wins the game.
I’ll also be sharing a couple of other Valentine’s math games I made for the other kids: division and doubling. Stay tuned for those.

DD is learning her multiplication tables. Yesterday, I shared the multiplication practice worksheets I made for her in the Pokemon theme. I made her some cards with some of her beloved Pokemon characters. I’ll share it here in case anyone else is interested!
Click here to download the Pokemon Multiplication Cards
We’ll use these cards to play a game called Fast Track that we made years ago. This was an idea I got from the wonderful book, Games for Math by Peggy Kaye. When she’s going over the 4s, for example, she’ll turn over the card (let’s say 4×9), figure out the answer (36), and then move ahead nine spaces.
You can use this for number recognition, addition, subtraction, multiplication … the possibilities are really endless!
If you like these cards, you might also like the Pokemon themed multiplication practice sheets that I shared a couple of days ago as well.
Also, if you can check out my Facebook page for a quick overview of all the posts I’ve done. Plus, I love when people say hello!! ~Liesl

I asked DD to choose a few of her favorite Pokemon characters and used these to add a little flavor to her multiplication practice sheets. If anyone is interested, you can download and print them off for your own kids.
Multiplication Practice Sheets 3s through 6s (Pokemon Theme)
DD has been using a bunch of different resources in starting to learn her multiplication tables. She still has another page left of her Pete the Cat Multiplication by 4s that I shared a month ago or so (middle top in the photo below). She’s also making her way through Math Mammoth Multiplication 1 (now $5.00, though I got it on sale a year or two ago). We also got a Multiplication book by Carson-Dellosa ($4.49) that has cute pages.
If you find these useful, I’d love to hear from you either here or at my Facebook page! Over there I keep a running list of all the posts I’ve done. It’s a quick way to see past posts you might have missed. ~Liesl
