The five times table is often learned by rote as a rhyme. Research suggests that table tests of this rote learning can be the start of maths anxiety, hindering the learning of maths for a lifetime. BUT good mathematicians are often NOT good rote learners!!!
When you share these games with your child they will discover that multiplication by five can be connected to real life through playing with 5p coins.
Play the second game several times and as your child learns strategies to win they will be powerfully working with the five times table forwards and backwards! The final activity is a classic one used to add understanding of a concept when saying a rhyme. Taking turns with your child will be a special opportunity to extend this learning even further. Have fun anywhere, anytime.
