Simple games to play at home to practise instant recall of addition and subtraction facts

• Matching Pairs (pelmanism). Arrange calculation and answer cards, in a grid formation, upside down on a table. Take it in turns to turn over two cards, one at a time, and leave them in position. If they match (calculation = answer), the player keeps those cards. If not, they turn them back over and the next player takes a turn. The aim is to remember where you saw the calculations/answers so that after one card is turned you may remember where the required matching card is positioned. A great game for training the memory as well as learning number facts!
• Dominoes – match ends to make a given number, e.g. 10. How long a line of dominoes can you make?
• Snap – at the same time, two players each turn over a number card (e.g. playing cards with the picture cards removed), from two shuffled piles. If they make a given number (e.g. 8), say “Snap!” and keep the pair. The winner is the player with the most cards at the end.
• ‘Fact Flaps’- use as a prompt to help them ‘peek’ at the answers if stuck when playing a game

MULTIPLICATION AND DIVISION FACTS

Ways to learn times tables at home

• Counting in sequence, e.g. 0, 7, 14, 21 …….84, as you walk home from school, walk upstairs etc.
• Chanting times tables facts, e.g. 7 x 0 = 0, 7 x 1 = 7, 7 x 2 = 14, ……. 7 x 12 = 84
• Multiplication square – child to complete it themselves and use as a prompt to help them find answers when playing games
• ‘Finger Flaps’ and ‘Fact Flaps’ - use as a prompt to help them ‘peek’ at the answers if stuck when playing a game
• Play Matching Pairs (pelmanism) [See addition and subtraction for how to play]
