Great Selection of Numeracy Games for Kids ks2


Here is a good selection of numeracy games for kids Ks2. I am sure many ks1 (up to year 2)  children will also find these enjoyable to play. What is learning without games? I think game should be compulsory in all subjects, even when you go to university!  ☺

 Learning is more enjoyable when a variety of resources are used. I think it is vital to use  both auditory and visual techniques for all students no matter what age group. Some would argue that you should teach to a student's learning styles, but I believe that no learning style has any better outcome than another.

Therefore it is probably best to use a variety of style and this will engage all aspects of learning.  Here are some of my recent games. I have tried to make them for all types of learners. Let me know what you think.

Use different techniques when trying to help your child. Let them watch a video on times tables, listen to songs, play multiplication times table games, count pasta, do worksheets and just have fun!

Learning in Pairs and Small Groups using Printable Multiplication Games is a Great Way to Give Them a Sense of Achievement


Learning together in pairs and small groups by playing a printable board game is a great way for kids to learn. Learning together encourages children to learn from each other and feel confident talking and assisting each other to get the right answer. It is good practice of social skills as students have to communicate with each other by not just talking, but also by listening. Doing any type of work in a group or pairs is a good practice. Many schools have realised this which is why they do peer to peer assessments and put students into groups and pairs to do projects and class work.


The British Council state that working in pairs and small groups should not be underestimated. Even very young learners can become more independent by allowing them to work in small groups or pairs.  Some of the benefits are:

Printable Multiplication Game Football Game! 1: Gives learners more speaking time.
2: Gives them a sense of achievement when reaching a team goal.
3: Allows them to talk with students they would otherwise not need to speak to.
4: Gives them confidents and better social skills.


I have developed my printable board games to be played in groups of two or above. Fir example, the snakes and ladders game can be played with up to four players.   My game is just a twist on the traditional snakes and ladders game. It is for all age groups, as they can use a multiplication chart to help them if they are stuck.

Thus, small groups and pairs are a great way to for children to learn at all ages. I can be done at home or in the classroom and is not restricted by the ability of a child.

Why design multiplication games printable for Ks2 why kids are allowed to have fun learning maths

I decided to design multiplication games printable for Ks2 as I wanted children to enjoy and have fun learning the multiplication tables. 

Having fun learning maths does not mean that children or even adults are not learning. It means that they will be more relaxed, less fearful and have a positive learning experience.

One the first games I developed was a printable multiplication snakes and ladders game. Why? Well most kids and adults have played snakes and ladders at some stage in their life and I wanted a game that was easy to play with the added information of learning the times table. I even added some literacy - in the form of snake names! I have even designed a printable multiplication cootie catcher / fortune teller game for kids to learn the times tables and still - yes- have fun!

Printable Multiplication Games For KS2 and SEN


I remember teaching one of my younger students online. Yes, that' right. I used my snakes and ladders online with her on Twidddla! We were having such a good time and she was close to winning. Laugher could be heard in both of our voices. After the lesson, her mother spoke to me and asked how she was doing. When I stated she was doing very well. The mum replied that she was not sure as she had heard her laughing. See, we all see laughing in a classroom as negative, but it is not. This little girl has now learned her times tables. I used a variety of resources, my printable multiplication games,  multiplication songs, multiplication drill worksheets. They all have their place in helping our children learn! This is why I decided to design multiplication games printable for ks2!

PRINTABLE Unique Multiplication Boat Game!




Learning the multiplication tables is an important element of maths. It is the cornerstone whereby kids can go on to develop their mathematical skills. This skill will allow them to manipulate numbers and understand the basic concept of skip counting and adding on. However, this can be a boring and tedious process for many children and one that parents and even teachers may shy away from, particularly if a child having problems learning the multiplication tables. I, as a parent, totally understand the frustration. If parents understood just how important learning multiplication facts are, then they would spend more time and resources ensuring their child understood and could recite most of the times tables by heart and the rest by a process of deduction.

 
When my son was younger, I decided to start to teach skip counting as soon as I could. We would do a little each day. I would also combine this with basic multiplication tables such as the 1s and 2s. He then became familiar with the concept of grouping and skip counting but at the same time he was learning them off by heart. By the age of 9 he knew the times tables by heart.  I know that practice makes perfect. There is no need to bore your child to tears with endless lessons one day and none another day. Instead do a little each day. As my gran used to say, ' little and often is better than none and then loads!'

 I  have  also found that my students respond to little and often. Parents tend to panic; this is normally right after parents' evening when they have been informed that their child does not know the tables!  Having not taken much interest prior to this, all of a sudden parents are scouring the internet, looking for maths books, workbook or just about anything that will help. I have done this with my own children!
 
I wanted a way for my students to learn and have fun. I also wanted to have fun! I decided that playing multiplication games was a fun and cool way for kids to learn. Yesterday, after playing my football times table multiplication game, another student challenged a student to a rematch! That says it all! Printable Multiplication Games Are The Way To Go!
