Times Tables

Learning times tables is extremely important in Grade 4 & 5. Here are some resources you may want to use when practicing with your child at home. Remember that variety is important when learning/practicing.

I recommend the following:

-flash cards

-online games (Arcademics & Aqua Math are two of the many sites available)

-basic drills using the sheets I created myself (more info below)

-card games**

-any other method of your choice (singing, dancing, using a ball to encourage movement and while reciting multiples of a number)

**This book (Box Cars and One Eyed Jacks) is a great one to have on hand. I believe it’s available at Kidsbooks. If wanting to drive a bit further, Collins Educational Supplies also has a few copies available.

I’ve created some simple “practice sheets” for the class and you are welcome to use them at home as well. I don’t recommend more than one times tables at a time. Don’t overdo it, but be consistent.
