The resources in this blog post are a perfect fit for the **third grade classroom**. You may use them as early finishers or math centers for students to practice their fact fluency. Fill out the form located at the bottom of this post to receive the **free printables**!

**1. Multiplication – Dot Math**

I made this activity specifically to be used with **dot markers (affiliate link)**. There are 3 mats per fact (1-12). Each mat increases in difficulty, so you can differentiate as needed. This is a perfect early finisher that students will want to get to 🙂

**Directions: **

- Use a pencil and paperclip to create a spinner. Spin
- Multiply the factors
- Find the product and color with the dot marker

This can easily be turned into a **partner game**. Each student can pick a color and **their goal can be to get 4 in a row**.

**Laminated Version **

You can save on paper by laminating the cards *(or putting them in sheet protectors)*. **Students can then use cute erasers to cover the product**. The emoji erasers pictured below are from amazon. **Click here** for the affiliate link.

**2. Multiplication – Clip Math**

This math center was also made to bring some fun and color into the classroom. I wanted a fact fluency center that students could practice, self-check, and reuse as needed. This activity covers facts 1-12 and is meant to be used with clips.

**Directions: **

- Place a clip on the product
- Check your answer (on back of card)

You can use a variety of fun clips from the Target dollar spot. 🙂 Subscribe to download the free resources.

**3. Multiplication – Dominoes Game**

This dominoes activity brings some fun into math centers. It can be used as a printable where students color the dominoes to match. You can decided to place the sheet inside a sheet protector to save paper.

**Directions: **

- Pick a domino
- Draw the domino
- Write the equation

This dominoes game can easily be turned into a **partner game**. Students place several dominoes facing down, each selects a domino, and creates a multiplication equation. The rule can be the lowest product wins or the highest product wins.

**4. Multiplication – Free Online Games**

My third graders enjoyed math magician. This can be assigned as a computer center or played whole group when you have less than 10 minutes available. Students loved to write the winning time on the board.

Manga High is FREE and has such engaging math games. My favorite fact fluency game is Sundae Times. After creating a teacher account and student accounts (all free), **students can compete with each other**. This is a real hit!

**5. Multiplication – Dice Game**

Having a variety of dice can be helpful when differentiating for fact fluency. This bundle of dice (**affiliate link**) has a great variety. You can create a center to practice multiplying multiples of 10, facts up to 12, or facts up to 20.

Students can use the free printable sheet to record their answers.

**Directions: **

- Roll the dice
- Record the equation

**6. Dodecahedron Project**

This dodecahedron project is a great review activity for multiplication and division. I used this project as an end of unit activity. Students are excited to put the project together, so their work is always excellent. **Click here** to view the resource.

**Directions: **

- Complete the pages
- Check your answers (teacher checks or provides a key)
- Add color
- Cut out the circles
- Fold on the lines
- Staple together

*Watch the video to see how to see one way of putting the dodecahedron together. *

**7. Digital Interactive Math Slides**

Digital interactive math centers are always a hit with students. Each center includes a **Google Slides** version and a **PowerPoint** version. You can assigned them using Google Classroom or complete the activity whole-group using a smart board or a simple projector. The video below shows the slides included in Practice 1 of this resources. **Click here **to view the resource.

These look great. I’d love to try them in my class.

I love these ideas. Do the dot markers get messy?

It’s like a glue bottle..only a dab will do 🙂 It won’t be messy if students press gently.
