Materials Required: to know the time tables
Activity Time: 30 minutes (aprox.)
Concepts Taught: Multiplication

I am teaching English, Math and Science in a bilingual private school in Puerto Rico. Student here are used to study English as a second language but in my school they practice it a lot during these three classes. After introducing children to the time tables it gets a little akward to repeat them class after class until they memorize them. This game put a little bit of spice to it, by asking them to perform an exercise times a time table. The student hears the command then how many time he or she is supposed to do it. Find the answer in their mind and the other students count aloud to make sure they do the exercise as many times as the correct answer to the time table.
For example:
SWING YOUR ARMS 4X5
MOVE YOUR HEAD 3X2
JUMP 7 x 3
REACH UP TO THE CEILING 4X6

This lesson allows you to evaluate:
1. How well they can count up to 100.
2. How well they have memorized their time tables.
3. How is their conversational English.
