Helping Your Child

Supporting Times Tables

As we already know, practice is essential when learning multiplication and division facts. Singing songs and reciting times tables can be very beneficial. Games can be played with cards or dice. Turning over a card or rolling a dice and multiplying the number by the target table. Bingo can also be played, fill a card with multiples of the chosen table. Turn a card  and multiply it by the target table. If the product is on your grid (answer) you can cover it up. Who will cover their board first? Regular, short practices are better than one long session. You could practice on the way to school for example or have a family challenge. Please remember that children learn best when it is made fun.
