Timestable snap

Pack of playing cards

I use a pack of playing cards with the kings, queens, jacks and aces removed, to play timestable snap games. These help children to practice their timestables in an enjoyable way. The game is played by sharing the cards out amongst the players. Each player takes a turn to place a card face up in the pile. The child has to shout out the answer to the multiplication correctly. If they get it wrong the next player can say the answer and steal the cards. The player with the most cards at the end, wins the game.Two cards can be multiplied together or a child can be asked to multiply a given card by a specific number. The cards can also be used for addition and doubling practice.
