14 Resources For Learning The Times Tables

This post about is in collaboration with Educents, and does contain affiliate links. I was not compensated for this post.

Confession : I did not have my times tables memorized until I started teaching multiplication to my son...sad, I know.

Fact is, in school I was "taught" by flash cards and was tested by timed multiplication drills in which I had to write down the answers to as many multiplication facts before the timer ran out. Needless to say, I crumbled under pressure and could not finish one sheet before everyone else was done or had a majority of them completed. Throughout the rest of my school years, I despised math.

I am sure that we can all agree that there are different ways of learning math and not all work for everyone.

Educents rounded up some of the most engaging times table activities that serve all sorts of learning (and teaching!) styles, including video, music, printable worksheets, dominos, and more.

$20.00 Off Of Your First Diaper Bundle PLUS FREE Shipping!

This post is in collaboration with the Honest Co., as a brand ambassador. Post contains affiliate links, but all opinions are my own.

This has to be the best deal from The Honest Co. yet! For a limited time, you can get $20.00 off of your first diaper and wipes FREE SHIPPING!

I have been a long time fan of the Honest Co. ever since I got my free trial back in May 2012 when my first child was still in diapers (he and my other children are mostly cloth diapered, but when I turn to sposies, I usually buy Honest) Now, most of the household and personal care products are from The Honest Co. and they meet my level of "crunchiness" due to their Honestly Free Guarantee.

For the past couple of years of homeschooling, I have been piecing together my children's curriculum, not only for budgetary reasons, but also to have a little control on what my child is learning and how they are learning it.

In the spirit of rounding out the year's learning, I've rounded up 6 super supplements for your homeschool curriculum that are worth your time that won't break the bank!

1. Times Tales

Times Tales helps kids get the upper hand on upper times tables. It's a fun, music-filled video that uses stories and mnemonic learning so little learners can't help but learn their upper times tables. It's been hailed by plenty of other bloggers and I can't say enough good. It's available in a DVD format but you can get started right away with the downloadable version. This is the same company who created Zone Cleaning for Kids. Needless to say, they're great!
Price: $14.95 (save $7)
