*Cool math games: *

This site has fun games to practice basic facts. The games are not leveled so they may require some trial and error to pick the best ones for your child to use for practice.
**Multiplication.com:**
http://www.multiplication.com/games
Provides games with specific practice in building fluency in multiplication. This website also includes practice in addition and subtraction.
**The Math Play website**:
http://www.math-play.com/multiplication-games.html
This site has games to reinforce multiplication facts and teach properties of multiplication too. The games also work on dexterity and quick thinking. Some may not be good for children who do not like doing things quickly
