MULTIPLICATION PRACTICE AT HOME
Have your child set a schedule to practice 2-3 times a week for 10 minutes a day for mastery.
They can also focus on a few facts a month to break the goal into chunks. Here is an example schedule:
December: 0, 1, 2, and 3
January: 5 and 10
February: 4 and 6
March: 7 and 8
May: All Facts Fluently
Below are some ways to practice at home:
- Your child can sign on to xtramath.org at home and practice.
- Old-fashioned flash cards (send your child's teacher an email if you need some)
- Create chants and rhymes to help memorize (example-https://www.lewispalmer.org/cms/lib/CO01900635/Centricity/Domain/874/MultiplicationRhymes.docx.pdf)
