There are stories and songs here to help with the memorization of multiplication facts. We try to move and sing whenever we can to use auditory, kinesthetic, and visual cues for the brain. Our brains store memories better when we use our temporal lobe, our motor cortex, and our occipital lobe together. Flash cards are another great way to memorize these facts.
Practice Daily
If you want premade 100 problem multiplication practice pages to work on automaticity at home, you can go to the mathdrills website. The goal is to complete the page within five minutes.
Sumdog Practice
Sumdog is a website that offers different gaming opportunities for multiplication (as well as addition/subtraction/division) practice. You can choose between math skills or tables in one of the setup options and Sumdog will monitor your child's progress with specific math facts. Ask me if you need help adjusting these settings. Rules to Remember
X ZERO and X ONE  All students begin by understanding that anything times zero equals zero. Likewise, anything times one is equal to the number you multiply times one.
X TWO  I also emphasize that if you know your doubles addition facts 1 + 1 = 2, 2 + 2 = 4, 3 + 3 =6, etc... then you already know your 2 times table. X TEN  If you're familiar with School House Rock (TM), you may know My Hero Zero. Anything times 10 is the same as that number with a ZERO slapped on the end. This is important not just with the 112 times tables, but with any number. For example 9 x 10 = 90 & 745 x 10 = 7,450 & 78,987 x 10 = 789,870 It's one of the most basic, and all important number sense ideas in our mathematical system. Multiplication Songs Keep in mind that teaching new concepts is best done with hands on manipulatives. Please practice our multiplication songs, and make sure your child is using their hands as they sing. (All the song lyrics are on a document in the attachment section below. I'll also be adding mp3's of the songs as time goes on.)
Pegging for Kinesthetic Stories  have your child show you the movements that go with the pegs. The number pegs are used in the stories illustrated below.
