This resource is aimed at pupils in middle classes or SEN pupils at the beginning of work on multiplication. After they have learned their multiplication tables, this resource can be used a form of practice for them or it could be used as a form of assessment.
Cut up the sheets into twenty separate cards and laminate them individually. Pupils should look at the multiplication table at the top of the page and place a clothes peg on the correct answer on the bottom of the card from the four options given.
This pack could be split up into two packs of ten if so desired by the teacher
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can work out the answer from their knowledge of multiplication tables. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of multiplication. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
We frequently gave activities such as this for homework to our SEN pupils. It gave them the sense that they had homework like everyone else and it also allowed the parents to see what Maths topic we were currently working on.
This activity could also be used as an independent work task completed by a pupil in their work station.
