It’s multiplication with a St. Patrick’s Day twist! Fun, no-prep and great for working on times tables.
Once we get towards the end of February, it feels like the hardest (or rather coldest!) part of winter is done, and we can finally start looking ahead to spring.
Along with the soon-approaching month of March, comes St. Patrick’s Day, which is celebrated on the 17th day of the month.
And with St. Patrick’s Day on the horizon, it’s definitely time to dig out some fun themed resources.
Today’s post is all about St. Patrick’s Day multiplication worksheets. These are perfect for practising times tables whilst also getting into the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day.
Let me tell you a bit more.
What is included in this resource?
This digital download contains 11 different single-page worksheets for practising multiplication facts.
Nine of the worksheets practise a single multiplication table (2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s and 10s).
The last 2 worksheets are called ‘All Facts 1’ and ‘All Facts 2’. As the names suggest, these worksheets practise a selection from all multiplication tables (from 1 x 1 up to 10 x 10).
How do you complete these worksheets?
On each worksheet, there are ten multiplication questions.
For each question, the numbers 1 through 10 are represented by a St. Patrick’s Day themed picture, like so:
Use the key at the top of the worksheet to decode each number sentence.
Then, finish the number sentence by writing the correct number in the box.
Do these work well with a class of children?
The nice thing about these worksheets is that they make differentiation easy.
All children in the class can be completing the same activity, but working on the particular multiplication table that they need to practice.
If you have children that know all their multiplication tables and simply need to keep them ticking over, you can photocopy the two ‘all facts’ worksheets back-to-back to make a double-sided 20-question worksheet!
Is there an answer key?
You betcha! There are answer keys for all worksheets included.
The answer keys are easy to use so your child (or students) can even mark their own answers.
