Third grade is a landmark year for multiplication and division. Even though public schools teach multiple strategies; they do not spend much time memorizing multiplication facts in the classroom. That task will fall on you moms and dads. And with already an hour worth of homework each night whose got time for that? (I will spare you the ain’t nobody)
My darling friends who teach third grade warned me to use the summer prior to third grade to memorize the multiplication facts – – – and did I listen? Well yes, sort of. I did but I really didn’t know where to start. I’m not a teacher. Since Pinterest is basically the be-all and end-all of motherly resources; I searched, pinned and tried multiple methods. I did order one of these retro keyboards mostly because it brought me right back to my multiplication hating childhood!
This Multiplication Songs and Tricks (FREE PRINTABLE) was my best first resource. My kiddo did great using these along with the standard skip counting memorization. But when it came to memorizing the higher numbers she was just plain burnt out. And honestly so was I. Her class had already moved on to division. So she was already seeing firsthand how important it was to know her multiplication tables quick and off the cuff. So I got lucky when that Ad came through and I ordered that DVD like it was the last pancake on Sunday. Sure enough within 2 weeks she had them all down pat, including reversing the facts and applying division. We printed the flash cards from the second disk and as a refresher we go over them once a week.
So, of course, I had to share with all of you. If you have a third grader or any kid who can use help with their upper multiplication tables, this will be the best $20 you ever spend! Tell them your crazy friend sent you!
P.S. The Educents.com website has TONS of educational resources. Especially for you homeschoolers that have waaay more brains and patience than I do! They also have an Edubucks program where you earn back 5% of your purchases, that could be interesting.

What Educents customers are saying about Times Tales:
“Fun and effective! Did in 2 weeks what other curriculum didn’t do in a year!”
“My kids did NOT want to like this when I first opened it up, but they ended up liking it a LOT! They kept trying to “figure it out” so it took a while for my 2nd and 4th grader to just relax and watch the stories. We followed the recommended pace, and in 2 weeks this DVD solidified what other methods could not do for them in a year! Even my 3 yr old shouts out the answers to some of the quiz questions! Of course she doesn’t understand what she’s learning yet, but when her time comes, learning her multiplication facts will be painless and easy 🙂 Definitely recommend this program to anyone who has stressed over drilling boring multiplication facts into their kids! You WILL Love it! :)” -ML
“I can’t even imagine how many less papers my 5th grade teacher would have had to grade if we had this in my elementary school! We did multiplication drills every single day during our 2nd semester! Using this DVD really beats that.” – Celena J.
