Times Tables Made Easy with Stories

apples1Homeschool Review

Last week, my husband was helping me teach math to our boys. He made a remark about how they were both struggling with multiplication.

You can imagine how that went over. My self worth as a mother, wife, and person is completely wrapped up in my homeschool abilities (not really, at least not anymore,  but I have been there).

I had Times Tales on my wish list and hubby’s remark motivated me to order the program that day. When it arrived I taught both boys for less than one hour (behind Dad’s back).

It’s a cute system of short  stories (only 4 sentences) for each math problem. The stories help them remember the answers.

I do well with stories and apparently my boys do too. In less than an hour both of them learned all the facts they were having trouble with! You know the ones: 3×6, 3×7, 3×8, 3×9, 4×6, 4×7, 4×8, 4×9, 6×6, 6×7, 6×8, 6×9, 7×7, 7×8, 7×9, 8×8, 8×9, 9×9. They loved it and asked for more

I sat them in front of Daddy with the Times Tales flash cards. He was really surprised how quick the shouted out each answer. I was elated and validated. :)

Times Tales is a creative, innovative mnemonic-based program that makes it fun and easy to memorize the upper multiplication facts.

Times Tales uses cute, simple stories to provide students with a “memory peg”, allowing them to quickly recall otherwise abstract facts.

  • Covers the most difficult to memorize times tables
  • FAST – most children learn in two 45 minute sessions!
  • Non-consumable – can be used by the whole family.
  • FUN – kids love this learning method and ask for more!
  • Free – Free printable math worksheets from the website!

This certainly doesn’t take the place of a regular math program. It is a supplement. But it the best supplement I’ve ever purchased.

Tomorrow division!
