Before students can be expected to become fluent in multiplication, they need to have good understanding of number relationships. Without this, they will still be counting on their fingers. I have typed up 3 simple matching games that students can use to reinforce these number strategies. It is recommended that students be introduced to these strategies via word problems or with a collection of facts that lends themselves to the strategy BEFORE adding these to math stations.
1st Matching Game - 0, 1, 2
2nd Matching Game - Doubles, Doubles plus 1
3rd Matching Game - Make Ten
