Summer is here and the living is easy.

She’s working on memorizing her times tables so she can sail into third grade math this fall with no trouble.

Pineapple Multiplication by Four Game
To use this printable multiplication roll and cover game, you’ll need the following: (This post contains affiliate links. For details, see our Disclosure Policy.)
- Printer (with ink)
- Printer Paper
- Six-sided dice or ten-sided dice
- Math counters or buttons
- Astrobright paper (optional)
This product includes two versions of the multiplication roll and cover game:
- One for use with a six-sided die
- And one for use with a ten-sided die
The rules are simple.
Students roll a die and then find the corresponding multiple of four on the game board.
Then they just cover that number with a math counter and keep going!
You can also use buttons, counting bears, pom-poms, or coins in place of counters.
Students can play the game alone or with a partner. If they’re playing alone, challenge them to see how quickly they can roll and cover all the multiples.
If they’re playing with a partner, the first one to cover the last multiple wins!
A line art version of both game boards is also included.
Personally, I love to add a pop of color by printing them on AstroBright paper – as above. It definitely makes the activity a bit more cheerful.
