Chanting the Multiples

Grade 3, Grade 4, Grade 5

Created by:

Activity Instructions

Display the banner and encourage your class to recite the multiples while engaging in any form of physical activity. Adding some form of cross-body movement while reciting the multiples will speed up student’s retention. Let students take turns coming up with movements to do while reciting the multiples. (Movement ideas can be found in the Math & Movement Training Manual for Elementary Schools.)

When students become familiar with the multiples, they will want to challenge themselves by turning their back to the banner while the class is counting. The students who do not know the multiples will be more engaged when they can see the skip counting numbers on the banner and thus be able to count along with the class.
