Multiplication for a Friend

Here are some multiplication links I promised a friend.  Enjoy!

Times Tales   (from the website) Times Tales is a creative, innovative mnemonic-basedprogram 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

Timez Attack   Video game that teaches multiplication facts. Explore the castle, fight the ogres (or whatever they are). There is a free demo available for download that does most of what the purchased version does. I think you get a better variety of monsters to fight in the purchased version, among other things.

Multiplication.comMy girls LOVE this site. Fun, simple video games that drill multiplication facts. Their favorite is Fairy Fun. If I had one complaint, it's that the answer seems to usually be in only two of the four places you can choose. Not as random as I'd like, but fine. You can choose which facts to work on (perfect for Pepper who is only learning 2s and 3s right now and Daisy who needs extra work on 7s)

The sixes is our favorite song!!!

Schoolhouse Rock Remember the multiplication songs from when you were a kid? Figure 8s were my favorite. And the hide and seek one.

One more: Roll n Multiply Math Bingo, only more fun!
