Are you a homeschooling mom with a frustrated child who is attempting to memorize the multiplication tables? I’ve been there too. Read on.
Sometimes, the times tables don’t seem to “stick” in your child’s mind. Knowing how your child learns most effectively can help you find the right resources! If your child is a visual learner, you may want to try out a program that has helped hundreds of kids learn their times tables in an hour using a very fun & easy to understand animated video. The Times Tales DVD is a two-part video series that uses stories to teach multiplication. The videos use cute, simple stories that provide students with a “memory peg,” allowing them to quickly recall otherwise abstract multiplication facts. As students progress through the video, they’ll learn multiplication without even knowing it! It’s that easy!
