### Help With Multiplication Facts

Students studied basic multiplication in the fall. Some students have a rough time learning their basic facts. It makes it tough to do more complex multiplication or work with fractions. So we took some time to make these videos to try and help students picture AND REMEMBER their basic facts. Thanks to all the students who finished putting these together!

Please comment! What did you do to learn your basic multiplication facts or "times tables" (as they used to be called)?

1. This idea for teaching multiplication facts is very creative and interesting; hopefully this will help kids that are struggling to learn their multiplication facts.

2. Dear Brian Pahl, I learned my x7 multiplication facts from a website for 3rd to early 4th grade multiplication, and the best part is, once you play those games, it is like riding a bike. Once you learn them, you can’t forget them. I love the video, though!

3. Dear Class,
I can’t believe were doing fractions already! I seems like we just finished multiplication but were still not done with multiplying yet.
From Gavin

1. Dear Gavin,
It really hasn't been that long since we did multiplication, and we are all ready on fractions. It was really fun to make those videos because I knew it would help people learn their multiplication facts.
From, Julia

4. Dear class,
The videos turned out really well. They were also really fun to work on.

5. Dear Book Trailer People,
Great job on the book trailers. They sound great with the music and the images are so cool! I know that it was hard to find the images for some of us but I think it paid off.

Thank you so much for the complement. You are right, it was hard making these but it paid of for me and hopefully the other people who made them.
