Introducing: Multiplication Table Challenges!
When you told us back in April that multiplication tables practice was really important in your teaching, we listened and immediately started work on some new tools to help. We’re delighted to show you the first part of this!
Log in to your dashboard now to try our new Multiplication Table Challenges.
This is brand new and we want to make sure it works for you, so let us know if you have any feedback.
Free for all users
We believe that tables fluency can be an essential step towards both confidence and ability. In our mission to close the achievement gap, we are making these tables tools free to all Sumdog users.
Super quick to set up
Simply choose which tables you would like your class to focus on, and when you want them to practice.
Your students will then focus on these tables while playing their favourite Sumdog games.
Check out our video to see how easy it is!
Why not try:
There are lots of ways you can teach the tables with your class. Our new tool is designed to complement your teaching.
Regular practice can really help build multiplication fact fluency.
Why not try:
- Set a short burst of practice at the start or end of each day;
- Use it as a quick refresher before teaching a topic that relies on tables;
- Consolidate a table you have just taught;
- Set homework, or classwork for your rotations;
Set a Summer Challenge
Summer learning loss is nothing new and has been recognised and reported on since the early 90s. It can take on average 6 weeks to reteach material that children have forgotten over the summer which can be frustrating for both you and your pupils!
So why not get ahead and help to reduce learning loss this summer with some regular multiplication tables practice?
You can set up as many challenges as you like to give your class something to work on over the break! Just choose what you want them to focus on and make sure you set the dates for over the vacation.
We’ll have the results ready for you when you come back!
More to come
This is just the beginning of our new tables tools, and we know this might not be perfect just yet, but we want to keep working to make sure we provide teachers with valuable tools.
Look out for more tools such as reporting on ability and challenge results in the new school year.
In the meantime, if you have any feedback just let us know here.
