Addition and Multiplication Move 1


Hey friends!  So, I just wanted to come home today after a long day and make something!  This is a game I first saw in the Nimble with Numbers series, but I wanted to prettify it and give it a Valentine's theme.  I can't remember what they called it, but I call it Move 1, because you can only move one paper clip at a time.  There are two versions--one for addition facts to 9 + 9 and another for multiplication facts to 9 x 9.  I also included a multiplication/division chart for support.  Click here to grab yours.  I hope your kiddos enjoy it, and I'd love to read comments about how it works out for you!

  1. Thank you! You have no idea how awesome it is to have so many resources to choose from, for whatever your students need. I have SUCH a diverse class this year (from about K-4 skills) and it is impossible to teach without lots of different resources.

    Thank you for making it a little easier!

  3. I call the multiplication game, "Multiple Madness". It is a must have for any teacher who is teaching or reviewing multiplication. The kids love it! Not only does it help learn facts, it also requires strategic thinking. Thanks so much for sharing this freebie!

  11. Love this, and all of your products! Just one thing I wanted to mention, on the second one, the product 15 is missing. For some reason, my kids always get 5 x 3 right away! We changed it on ours but I wanted to let you know. Thanks again, and keep them coming!

  12. Yes 15 and 27 are missing from the multiplication one so we changed one of the '21' squares and one of the '14' squares?
