At some stage during your child's primary school years you are going to find yourself testing them on the times tables. In this section of the site you'll find lots of resources to make times tables learning fun, including times tables puzzles and games, interactive times tables worksheets, matching challenges, speed grids and quick quizzes.
Happily, this natural skill likely means they'll be pretty good at math! Choose a time of day when you and the child are relaxed.
Provide rewards (verbal encouragement, little treats, gold stars on "chore chart" checklists or awards for tasks that have been mastered) and change up the rewards when needed.
It's similar to the importance of reading with your children at an early age to help them develop their language arts skills.
The more complicated parts of math are so much easier to learn and quicker to accomplish when children have memorized their times tables! The pennies can go in their piggy bank as a reward when you're done.
