On Target Times Tables (PDF)
On Target Times Tables is perfect if your child has difficulty retaining times tables facts.
The On Target Times Tables booklet teaches times tables using the “over learning” principle. Our brains retain information and facts if we learn them repetitively over a period of time.
In this book you will learn sets of times tables and then repeat that learning until you get the individual times tables correct over 3 consecutive days. The act of repeating the learning will imprint the facts in the memory.
After learning the facts you can then focus in on the “tricky facts”. These are the facts that you found the hardest to recall. These can be focused on using rhymes and repetition.
You can use this book in 2 different ways.
- If you know which tables your child is weakest in you can skip straight to those pages and just practise those.
- Start at the beginning and work your way through. This is the option I would most recommend. We want to fill in any gaps in your child’s knowledge and build their confidence in times tables. Starting at the beginning will make them realise that they know more than they think and will make sure that they become fully confident.
