Works for Me Wednesday - Times Tales

This week, I found what I believe will be the solution to my daughter's multiplication memorization problems. I saw a link on a website I was visiting and found a program called Times Tales. They offered a free trial of their multiplication memorization product. Having struggled with multiplication daily lately, I'm game for just about anything at the moment.

I read through the program, and then excitedly showed it to Haley. She loved it! I explained the characters, read through the stories, discussed them, and poof...just like that she knew her upper nine multiplication facts. It took less than 10 minutes. Never in my entire life have I seen anything that was this effective. She is now begging me to buy the program. She likes it that well. Here's a picture of what's included in the Times Tales program.

Times Tales is a creative, innovative mnemonic-based program that makes it
fun and easy to memorize the upper multiplication facts. Times Tales uses
cute, simple stories to provide students with a "memory peg", allowing them to
quickly recall otherwise abstract facts.

- Covers the most difficult to memorize times tables:

- FAST - most children learn in two 45 minute sessions!

- Non-consumable - can be used by the whole family.

- FUN - kids love this learning method and ask for more!

So, if you've got a child who's struggling with the times tables, do yourself a favor and download the free trial. You will not be disappointed. In my opinion this program is a real bargain at just $29.95. If you download the trial first you will even receive a $3.00 off coupon code. This product has received rave reviews, and is even endorsed by Cathy Duffy & Jeannie Fulbright of Apologia. You'll find literally hundreds of glowing reviews on the website.

We'll be using this product over the next week or so to see how fast she learns them, but so far it really works for me!
