Multiplication Math Game

Alexandra started some harder multiplication today (ex. 42 x 3), so I came up with a new game. We took 3 dice - 2 of 1 color and the other 1 is a different color. You roll them and make the largest number possible with the 2 dice (ex. 42) and then multiply it by the die of a different color. Then, the other person takes their turn (we take turns so she can watch me do mine and I can correct her if necessary) and the winner of the round is whoever has the larger number. We played until someone (Alexandra) won 5 rounds. We both really enjoyed it, and it was a great way to practice without worksheets!

What a fun way to learn! :-) We like dice games, too. Thank you for the excellent suggestions on studying decimals.
