How to Use These Worksheets
The target worksheets are made to look like a dartboard. The target number is two and it is in the middle of each of the target worksheets. The next ring shows what to multiply the target number, two by and the outer ring of the target is blank and it is where the answer (product) is to be written in. Learning the multiplication facts can be daunting for children and sometimes it helps to change up the process. These target worksheets change it up a bit to provide a different experience from the traditional horizontal or vertical worksheets.
To ensure children today learn the multiplication facts and commit them to memory, it takes 10-15 minutes of practice three or four days per week, typically for the school year and sometimes longer. Worksheets like these need to be re-visited frequently throughout the year(s). Use an egg timer or stop watch and record how long it takes a child to complete a worksheet to gage progress. Playing beat the clock often stimulates some additional fun.
