LD is just starting out with his 7 times tables. We've been singing many rounds of our 7s skip counting song:
Row, Row, Row Your Boat...
7, 14, 21
Gently down the stream...
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily...
42, 49, 56, 63
Life is but a dream...
70, we've arrived.
And here's a game I made to play with LD this next week for practicing 7x4 through 7x9. Here is the link to the game board I made if anyone's interested. [LD liked this so much that I made another board to review his six times tables 6x4 through 6x9--at that same link.]
Here's how to play the "Catch the Mouse" game:
**Use a wooden cube and write the numerals 4 through 9 on each side. Each player takes a turn rolling the die and multiplying by 7.
**The object is to try to catch the most mice by placing two of your own markers on a mouse to capture it.
**Let's say you roll a 4. Multiply that by 7 and place a marker on the 28 mouse. The next player rolls. If there is just one marker on the mouse they can bump the other player's marker off the mouse. If their own marker is on that mouse and they place a second marker, then that mouse has been captured.
**The game ends when all mice are caught. The winner is the player who has caught the most mice.
