Newberry Academy Hosts First Annual Times Table Challenge PDF Print E-mail


Newberry Academy students in grades 1st through 7th had the opportunity to spotlight their multiplication skills in the school's first annual "Times Table Challenge" held on Friday, February 16th. The event, which focused on the students' abilities to recall their multiplication tables in a Spelling-Bee style format, provided the classes with an opportunity to strengthen their math skills in a fun and interactive competition.

"Here at Newberry Academy, we understand the importance of teaching students the fundamental concepts of multiplication, and our teachers spend a lot of time developing this understanding throughout the year," said Academic Dean Nicole May. "However, as students progress to higher levels of math, it is important that they have fast recall of multiplication facts. The only way to achieve this is through memorization."

Throughout each school year, Newberry Academy teachers focus on strengthening their class's times-table speed and accuracy through daily games and activities. Along with more traditional math instruction, classes have even had the opportunity to utilize times-tables creatively through songs and artwork, helping to reinforce the lessons learned throughout the week. It was this thought process that encouraged May to develop the idea of a school-wide "Times Table Challenge."€ The response was overwhelming and, as the date grew closer, students were finding every opportunity to practice and share their skills.

"Students have been stopping me in the halls and begging me to quiz them!" laughed one Newberry Academy teacher.

The "Times Table Challenge" included a variety of multiplication-related activities, highlighted by the class competition where students competed against one another to become the champion€ of their grade. The 8th Grade Class created special crowns for the class competition winners, and helped to lead students in math-focused games including bingo, relay races, and counting-on Macarena. Grades 1st through 4th also showcased their creativity by preparing a skit or poster highlighting their multiplication skills. The Times Table Champions€ in each grade were as follows: Ward Chocklett (1st Grade), Emily Bedenbaugh (2nd Grade), Grace Mayer (3rd Grade), Daniel Williams (4th Grade), Colin Davis (5th Grade), Hunter Piersol (6th Grade), and Diya Patel (7th Grade).
