Miss is having a little difficulty with her multiplication tables. I have tried flash cards, drills, and memorization, but still the facts are not sticking with her.
I talked to one of my home school mom friends and she recommended teaching Miss and Lil D how to skip count. They already know how to count by 2’s, 5’s and 10’s now I will attempt to teach them how to skip count by the rest of the numbers.
As I was searching the Internet for some tips and tricks on how to teach multiplication I came across this video, Finger Trick Multiplication Times Tables 6-10.
We tried the hand trick and it worked very well. Miss did her multiplication drills very quickly using this hand trick.
I am hoping that by using this trick along with the skip counting, the memorization will come to her.
What tips or tricks do you use to teach multiplication facts?
