Be sure to download your free Multiplication Table Chart here before you start the lesson.
Starting multiplication tables by fours means your child is getting into larger numbers. The good news? Some of the material is beginning to be repeated. These problems:
1 X 4 = 4
2 X 4 = 8
3 X 4 = 12
have already been presented when learning the multiplication tables for twos and threes, and when learning how to multiply by one.
Before working on this multiplication table, you might find that it will help your child to review skip counting by fours.
Having a solid grasp on that lesson will make learning these multiplication tables much easier.
Downloading the practice worksheets below will give additional practice in writing and thinking in multiples of 4.

There are directions on each worksheet, but I'll give a quick overview of each one below.
In the first paper there are four boxes with ice cream cones in them. Each cone has 4 scoops of ice cream on it. Count how many cones there are and multiply by the number of scoops to get the correct answer.
The next activity is a simple maze. Start with the jeep at block four and count by multiples of four to work your way through the multiplication table chart.
The third handout is a multiplication chart that is missing some numbers (all of which are multiples of four). Have your child fill in the correct numbers for each empty box.
