    Multiplication Board Races
    By Rachel

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I have an idea that my third graders love! However, I must admit I "stole" it from a colleague. I divide my board into 8 sections and call 8 children to the board. I tell them which multiplication set to do and then say "go!" As each child gets finished, I tell them their time and they write it at the bottom of their section. They absolutely love these races! And needless to say, they have to know their facts in order to finish quickly. I usually give some type of reward to those who finish under 2 minutes. I also let those who finish under 1 minute race me - they love trying to beat the teacher!
