    You can play a game called "Buzz"

    1. Kids all sit on their desks.

    2. You choose the multiplication table you want to explore.

    3. You show the kids the pattern. For example, if you choose 4 x tables, the pattern is 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 26, 28, etc. The pattern is that the ones repeat, 4, 8, 2, 6, 0, 4, 8, 2, 6, 0.

    4. Kids sit on their desks. First kid in first row starts by saying one. The next kid says 2 and so on. Every kid that gets to a multiple of 4 OR a number with four in it says "buzz". So for the four times tables, it would be 1, 2, 3, buzz, 5, 6, 7, buzz, 9, 10, 11, buzz, 13, buzz (because 14 has a four in it) etc. Go all the way up to 100 and all the way backwards from 100. Good for kids in grade 4 and up and they really like it and it really WORKS!
