Paperchains
This clever way of practising tables is self checking and simple to use. A pack of 12 cards is laid out colour side up. Turn over the card with an arrow on to see the first tables question. Turn over the card with the answer written on it to find the next question and so on. If you get all the answers right, you'll manage to turn over all the cards. If you don't you'll have one or more cards left over.

Box 1 has packs for the 2,3,4,5 and 10 times tables plus some mixed packs.

Box 2 has packs for the 6,7,8 and 9 times tables plus some mixed packs
