6 x 8 = 48

Emily has memorized almost all of her multiplication facts. There are just a few out there that she just can't get into her brain- like 6 x 8 = 48.

So we started using this FUN curriculum (thanks Tiff) as a supplement. Its called "Times Tables The Fun Way" and believe me- its so much FUN! There is a book with a fun story, that has the numbers as characters. Then there is a workbook to exercise your knowledge. Also a coloring page to hit the story home.

We have been doing exercises with a math fact a day (the ones she doesn't have in her brain) on paper. Well now we are using this board. She can use the magnetic characters to play with and do her exercises in a fun way, instead of on paper.
Thank you Lord for FUN resources to help our children!

That is tooo cool! Why don't they use that stuff in public schools? Maybe I'd be better at math if they had!
