Description from site:
The fastest way to learn multiplication facts! The Times Tales DVD Classroom Edition is a creative, innovative mnemonic-based program that makes it fun and easy to memorize the upper multiplication and division facts. Times Tales uses cute, simple stories to provide students with a “memory peg”, allowing them to quickly recall otherwise abstract facts. Times Tales covers the most difficult to remember facts that can’t quickly be calculated by skip counting!
How it works: Students are introduced to each number as a “character” that makes sense in some way. For example, the number seven is Mrs. Weeks because there are seven days in a week. Once students learn the number characters, they learn short, simple stories where the numbers interact in some way. Students simply picture two number characters together to recall the story, which includes the answer to the multiplication fact. It’s amazing how much easier it is for students to recall a simple story, than an abstract fact! Once they know the multiplication facts, they automatically know the division facts. All they have to do is picture the story and note which character is missing.
