Race around the clock times tables

Overall rating 4 out of 54.7 (179 ratings)

A worksheet that can be used to test times tables. The children write whatever times table they are doing (4x, 8x etc) in the star in the middle of the sheet and times the number on the outside of the track by that number. They then write the answers of the times table in the boxes in the inside More…of the track. Lower ability children can be asked to +2, +4 etc to the number on the outside of the track instead of completing times tables. Give children 2 or 3 minutes to complete the race. Photocopy back to back and ask higher ability children to complete both sides. I made this worksheet during a teaching practice with Year 3 - it works well.

Thank you. I love this sheet. I have laminated it and use it as a mental starter to help reinforce times tables.

Thanks! I love the same template can be used every day and we don't need to make a new one! Such a great time saver!
