Product Description:

So, you've tried the "conventional" methods of helping your child memorize his tables. Maybe you've even tried singing the tables, but he wasn't an auditory learner. Drills fall flat, because you have to memorize the tables before you can succeed. Even after practice, practice, practice, you're wondering if they'll ever really stick. Well, here's a novel approach - actually, more of a "short story" approach. Judy Liautaud has come up with some cute, and memorable, little stories to help fix these facts finally in the mind's eye, using a visual-memory-association technique that just may work for your little multiplier. Numbers become characters or objects in visuals and storylines in which the product is an integral part. Yeah, some of them are silly - all the better to remember them by. You know, I almost wrote a book like this after teaching the twins their tables. We used similar mnemonic devices and silly sayings like "76 trombones in the big parade....and 42 clowns!" and "He licks (six) his plate (eight) before he ate (forty-eight)" and a football game tied 7 to 7 until the 49ers got a last-minute touchdown. Okay, they're goofy, but they work! These were our particular problem products, but Judy's got all the tables covered. This activity book contains all of the "tricks" and stories to get your child through the tables, plus "Make Your Own Posters" and "Make Your Own Flashcards" sections so your student can also create his own helpful tools.

I chose this book because I remember using these exact illustrations when I was learning my times tables in elementary school and I still recall them when using multiplication as an adult! Now that my child is learning times tables, I am confident that this book will help her retain what she is learning and excel in multiplication!

Excellent Way to Learn Multiplication
This product taught my son how to multiply through stories. My son has autism and had problems learning multiplication. When we tried this workbook along with the companion book, he learned the multiplication facts. I can't say enough about this book. It is amazing.
