Have seen on here a couple of excellent resources mentioned for learning times tables.
Naturally, I forgot to bookmark them.
DS is in reception and they're just starting to talk about them (terrifying, as I learnt the 2x table by rote in y4/5 so I was hoping to start exposing him to some of them - I think I've seen songs/videos mentioned?
If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd be very grateful!
If you need more pizzazz (for which read a bit of stress/ time pressure) try out Timez Attack - it's a video game based on dungeon and dragons format. You're basically a little ogre (boy or girl) running about solving multiplication problems. They review it as multiple additions and then recap what you've learned as a vertical multiplication problem. The free version has two platforms or you can pay for more. We found the free version was more than enough. Link here: www.bigbrainz.com/. They have a division version as well for inverse multiplication facts, which was also good fun.
Multiplication.com has all sorts of games to practice multiplication skills: www.multiplication.com/games - there also are some free worksheets.
