As Fun as Learning Times Tables Could Be!,
This review is from: Times Tables (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)I had no real idea what to expect when we got this CD but my daughter is at an age where she is ready to start to learn her times tables and just needs some encouragement to do so.
Each set of times tables is set to a different style of music like jazz and blues etc. Some of the tunes are catchier than others but it is hard I think to make the tables sound interesting.
First a complete set of tables is spoken with the answers. Next comes the song where the child sings along. The song is then repeated without the answers so the child is supposed to shout them out. Lastly come some random times tables from the set which are in a jumbled order to really test a child's knowledge.
I think it's a good way to learn and what I really am thankful for is the little booklet in the CD case which has all the tables written out so my daughter while still learning can read them out and follow the songs to.
The only drawbacks for us are that it goes a little too fast and my daughter finds it hard to think of the answer in time. Also she gets bored after a couple of songs. But I guess that's to be expected. I definitely think she can learn her tables with this CD however. So overall a thumbs up!
