Using familiar tunes and repetition, Lori Morrison helps children easily master skip counting. Children will learn 2s to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star," 3s to the tune of "Jingle Bells," 4s to "The Star Spangled Banner," "Yankee Doodle" accompanies 6s, "This Old Man" for 7s, "Hokey Pokey" for 8s, "I've Been Working on the Railroad" for 9s, and 12s are learned to the tune of "Hurrah for the Red, White, and Blue." Each track on the CD repeats two to four times, with two tracks for each song did I mention repetition? Lori suggests using these songs along with the "Math Wheel" (#2306) or the "Math Gear: Multiplication (#32098) to help students apply the songs to multiplication facts as well. She finds that her techniques are successful for struggling learners and better enable students to master long division, fractions, and factorizations.
"Access to the Answers" developed by a math tutor, is a multi-sensory, kinesthetic method of mastering the times tables from the 2s to the 12s. This delightful musical CD sets times tables to a familiar children's tunes at accelerating speeds. The method can be accompanied with rhythmic finger motions (described in cover). This pleasant, animated, yet artistically sound work is a highly effective tool and great fun. Mothers of young children and those with learning disabilities as well have seen great results.
