In the beginning of every mathematics lesson, the students of Five White choose an activity they would like to complete in order to help them learn their multiplication tables. The students can choose from the following activities.

Play online multiplication games.

Create a rap/pop song about a multiplication table.

Create a poster of a multiplication table.

Complete multiplication activities on the iPads.

Time yourself as you complete a multiplication grid.

Play a multiplication game with a host and contestants.

Create your own flash cards and test yourself or someone else.

Take a look at Five White enjoying the multiplication activities. Miss Azzopardi loves watching the students have so much fun while they are learning!

What activities have you completed?

Have they been helping you learn your multiplication tables?

I have done a rap. Watching these raps made me learn from them. But I have to say that if you write your own rap it will make you learn more for sure! Before I made the 6 times tables rap I have to be honest I didn’t know one bit of the 6 times tables. Now since i wrote it I memorized it yayyyy!

I loved your rap . I made one too, they were awesome and of course you can learn from them even though it’s your own. I memorised the 4,6 and 7 times tables all from the raps on our blog It’s so awesome.

I think all those videos are really good and i know all my 6 , 7 and 4 times tables off by heart.We all tried really hard and before i knew my 6, 4 and 7 times tables but i didnt memorise them and now i have.

i know all those were good videos especially yours. I learnt the exact same time tables from watching those videos and even our own raps can teach us a lot , it was really hard to memorise them before but know look at us were time table wizards!

I have played the game with the host and the contestants with Isabelle and Simone if you saw back at the picutres. To be honest it was kind of hard but I tryed and kept on trying till I got the answer right. yes It helps me because i get a few right now because I have been practicing.

I did see the photo of you guys playing the host and contestant game it sounds like you are certainly awesome at it. I had a turn at the game and at first it seemed hard but then i got he hang of it just like you. I definitely believe that you are amazing to keep trying and trying , i agree that it can certainly help us all , just because you practised.

I loved watching all of those videos.They have helped me to learn my 6 and 7 times tables off by heart now when i’m doing a times tables test i will get them right.

I agree the video’s were awesome.They have helped me learn a lot too especially the 6 times tables,it’s so awesome that you have learnt them off by heart now.

The videos were awesome.I learnt alotand I am learning still from my 4-12 times tables , I created a rap and i also played a game of who can say the answer to times tables the most quickest I learnt alot all thanks to Mis Azzopardi.

I loved watching all those videos. They have helped me to learn my 6 and 7 time tables and I love the videos. So much they have help me and i will get them right

The activity I’ve done was play online multiplication games, Completing multiplication activities on the iPads, Creating a poster of a multiplication tables and Playing a multiplication game with a host and contestants.

Hi my name is Andrea and Im one of the students in yr 5. It is a very good way to learn our multiplication and we have many other smart ways! What are some of the smart ways yr 6 learn multiplication?

Thank you for replying to our post. Most children in year six, count everyday to help them remember and practice multiplication. In year six, we do lots of projects where we need to use all the multiplication we have learnt in the younger grades. Sometimes we even create our own tutorial videos, just like you did! Maybe we can share them with your class one day. Keep up the great writing. We are really enjoying reading your posts.

We have really being enjoying the activities in class.It is a very fun way to learn, I was in one of the videos with the two girls after we watched it we learnt a lot, thanks for commenting.

As I was in one of the raps I know my six times tables\.
And watching the other videos makes me even smarter cause i also know my 6, 7, and my 4 times tables.

It was really cool to write the raps and be in one of the videos.I watched the other videos and it helped me revise my times tables now we are geniuses.

I loved watching the video clips. I think they really help students learn their multiplication tables – great idea. Me & Moufid listened to the raps together. I also timed Moufid as he completed the multiplication grid.

in class i had been learning quite a lot of things (i never expected)
and those raps they are awesome and now i almost know all my multiplication tables.

The activitys that i have been doing are timing myself, the rap, ipads,timestables compotion and they have been very helpful of making me learn my timestables and it was very fun to play and do all of these activitys
