Mixing Collective Nouns and Multiplication Facts...Huh?

Are Multiplication Facts getting the better of you?



When I was in the classroom, I would see the stress in my students' eyes when they needed to solve a multiplication fact without assistance.  Some children just get it and others need a lot of practice.

This fun little multiplication puzzle will make multiplication facts a little less daunting, and students are rewarded by completing the puzzle to reveal a collective noun for a group of animals.

You are probably thinking..."What kind of a reward is that?"

From past experience, when students learn new vocabulary that goes with everyday things, that not everyone might know, and it is discovered informally, they thrive on it.  Students will love discovering the quirky (if I can call it that) collective nouns which their parents will probably not even know.  How my daughter loves to come home and 'teach' me something which she thinks I don't already know!




The collective nouns are not difficult but provide them with a 'step up' from their peers and family members and they will enjoy sharing their new found knowledge.
