Tables Tennis 2

Age Range: 7 - 11
By: David Holmes

This game is a great way of helping children to practice their multiplication tables:

1) Choose two well-matched children.

2) The children alternate in saying a times table. You could also ask them to count up in (for example) 6s from 2.

3) There is an element of competition to 'return' the action to your partner, and thinking ahead is encouraged, as well as simple mental arithmetic skills.
