Multiplication Fact Boot Camp

The Common Core tells us that by the end of 3rd Grade, students should be able to "fluently multiply and divide within 100...and by the end of Grade 3, know from memory all products of two-one digit numbers".  With this standard in mind, I have enlisted my students in "Multiplication Boot Camp".

This product is available for sale in my TPT Store, Down the Hall in Third Store.  For more Common Core aligned teaching ideas, please visit my blog, Down the Hall in Third.  Enjoy!
