5.0 out of 5 stars Times Tables With A Smile!, 22 Jan 2012
This review is from: Times Tables (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have previously tried a different times tables cd as I figured that it would be a great way to get my music loving, NOT times tables loving son to learn them relatively painlessly. That one, however, was a disaster as it sounded a bit condescending and the music sounded almost like nursery rhymes - needless to say he didn't put up with that for long!

Luckily, this cd is a very different cup of tea! We felt slightly relieved the moment it started up because at least the person reading the two times table sounded normal. It's hard to make reading the two times table out interesting, admittedly, but at least these weren't read sooooo sllooowwwllllyy that you felt like giving up before you even reached the first song, as happened with our previous cd! As soon as the song for the two times table started up, though, we all started to smile. This cd is a bit of fun - the songs are all in different styles such as blues, rock and reggae and they genuinely do make you want to join in and sing along.

Each table is read out first of all. This is then followed by a song where the table is first of all sung all the way through, then sung again with a gap for the kids to fill in the answer and, finally, sung again but this time the table is all muddled up to test the children. The tables are all written out in the cd insert.

I have to say that this cd has really worked for us because it is lighthearted and fun and has my son singing along without realising that he's working and taking on board his tables. Hurray! Highly recommended!
