Times Tables


Little-N has been working on his times tables. The Montessori curriculum has plenty of activities to help practice the times tables. We chose the three times table and worked with the following activities.

Multiplication with the bead stair. He wrote out his own question cards, with answer cards and a control of error on the back. He uses his cards to play a memory game.



Multiplication board.


3 bead chain and writing the number sequence.






Multiplication chart looking at the three times table.


Written multiplication chart.


3 times table on the hundred chart.


Multiplication on the peg board.

A few years ago Little-N worked with these materials to gain an understanding of multiplication. He has now revisited the material to help him with memorisation of the times tables.
Once he is confident with the three times table, we'll choose another one and work with the materials again.

This is unrelated to your post, but how are all of you doing with the current riots that have broken out in the UK?

Has lil-N said anything about what's happening around him in the UK?

Keep Safe
