Multiplication Facts Ice cream party

We are earning our way towards an Ice cream Party!  We will begin with a test on multiplication facts for the 0’s.  Each level earns a piece that will be used in the ice cream party.  For Example:  A 100% on the 0’s earns a spoon, a 100% on the 1’s earns a bowl, a 100%  on the 2’s earns a napkin, and so on, until we reach the 12’s.  I will be keeping track of where everyone is on the chart in the classroom.
