I have also made a short 5 min clip to show how it works!

This scaffolds the structure of short division with the 3| on the outside of the vertical line, the |15 on the inside and the answer above.

]]>I watched a clip from Waldorf maths and loved these times tables stars! Join the last digit on the circle to make a pattern. The templates are here https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/times-table-stars-11183992

Here’s another clip to show you 4s and 6s but I have made templates for 2s up to 13s!

Single and double digit multiplication are also shown using Multiplicative Thinking Blocks.

Level 1: two players each use one hand and the winner is the first to say the sum (+) of the fingers on both hands. Addition to 10

Level 2: two players each use both hands and the winner is the first to say the sum (+) of the fingers on four hands. Addition to 20

Level 3: two players each use one hand and the winner is the first to say the product (x) of the fingers on both hands. Times tables to 5 x 5

Level 4: two players each use both hands and the winner is the first to say the product (x) of the fingers on both hands eg if I put 7 fingers and my opponent 4 fingers, the winner is the first person to say 28. Times tables to 10 x 10.

more levels:

>the difference between the fingers

>multiple players – play with three or more!

** Only allow zero to be used once by any player
