Times Tales Workbook
Knowing your times tables are so important to build a solid foundation for upper level math. Drills aren't always the best way for students to learn and remember their multiplication facts. Through simple stories and the same lovable number characters found on the Times Tales DVD, children will practice facts for the upper numbers in the 3's, 4's, 6's, 7's, 8's, and 9's. These workbook pages are black and white and provide practice that can be done even if you aren't using the Times Tales DVD. Children will learn the story, answer questions, work puzzles, review, quiz, and test along with cutting out fact cards and assembling number story books. After completing the multiplication portions of the workbook, a short division section is offered. Answer keys are found in the back of the book. A free Times Tales quiz show can be downloaded from the publisher's website. 104 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

Multiplication tables can be so difficult to learn. If a child can memorize or use a manipulative to learn their tables, there are plenty of products to help you out, but what about those children who are more visual/auditory? Times Tales DVD makes learning upper tables fun - and in a short amount of time.
Learning is done in two parts. Children are to listen and watch the stories in the first part of the DVD in order to master the facts being presented. After completing the steps in the first part of the DVD, they can then proceed to the second part. The second part of the DVD presents more stories that build on the stories in part 1. Children will learn 3x6, 3x7, 3x8, 3x9, 4x6, 4x7, 4x8, 4x9, 6x6, 6x7, 6x8, 6x9, 7x7, 7x8, 7x9, 8x8, 8x9, 9x9 with the creative mnemonics presented in the illustrations and stories in the DVD. When children recall the story, they will recall the fact. The characters in the stories are represented by number people - 3 is a butterfly, 4 is a chair, 6 is the children of the first grade class, 7 is Mrs. Week, 8 is Mrs. Snowman, and 9 is a tree house. The story then tells about a fact that is illustrated in the picture. For example, "Mrs. Week (7) went butterfly hunting. She captured 20 butterflies in her net and one landed on her head." The illustration is Mrs. Week (7) holding a butterfly net with 20 butterflies (3) in the net and 1 butterfly (3) on her head. The fact to learn is 3 x 7 = 21.
A CD-ROM is also included with the DVD. It includes written tests, flashcards, crossword puzzles, and a fun game all in pdf format.
If you want your child to have a small flip chart for story review, there is a set that includes a 3"x 5" spiral-bound flip chart. The cardstock flip chart includes a picture for each story from the DVD along with the story. The reverse of the page has just the picture, so children can retell the story. There is also a fact review page at the end of part one and part two.
This is a product with no student boundaries - use it for the very young, for remedial work, or for students with learning disadvantages. It is non-consumable, so great for multiple students. Have some fun and work on those harder-to-remember multiplication facts. ~ Donna
