**When I first started teaching my kids maths, I made a series of arithmatic lapbooks covering addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. My daughter Samira made the addition and subtraction ones while my son, Yusef made the multiplication and division ones.**

**This one is the multiplication one, and it’s great for looking back and reviewing and also for introducing arithmatic to the younger kids. Once they have memorised their times tables, with regular reviewing, they will know them by heart and be able to solve problems at first glance.**

**You can download the templates to make this lapbook from Homeschool Share.**

**Here is what the lapbook looks like when the pages open. I made this book by folding a sheet of A3 card in half and taping another A4 sheet in the centre.**

**Turn the centre page over …**

**And on the reverse of the lapbook, I pasted a multiplication square and a pocket holding number cards to play ‘Take Two’ where the student has to choose two number cards at random and multiply them together.**

**There are two lots of number cards, numbered 1-9. They should be laid face down and two cards picked at random.**

**The two chosen cards must be multiplied together, i.e. 6 x 5**

**I found the templates for this lapbook here, on the Homeschool Share website and I’ve also made them available to download HERE.**

**Here are some more photos close up.**

This looks awesome! Thanks for sharing!

You’re welcome, Jennifer.

I just want to thank you for sharing…you did an awesome job!!!

I’m confused about the twos. Where do the answers go? Thanks!

Hi Nicole, you don’t need to write the answers for the two’s. You slide the bar down and answer each sum verbally as you reach it.
