You can download a FREE* copy of a special computer program, Best Times Tables Practice EVER! (*Free for non-commercial use — it was designed for home and classroom use; it’s available for PC only, Windows XP or newer.) Click here to look at screenshots and detailed descriptions about the program.
This free software complements my new CD, Best Multiplication Songs EVER! (More about that later in this post.)
Best Times Tables Practice EVER! really is the best. The program is easy-to-use. It’s customizable, so students can practice one or two times tables at a time, review all of their facts, or even teach themselves.
Teaching Tips, a button on the screen, explains how you can show your students to use the program to teach themselves, then test their progress.
For example, students can begin to learn their 6s, a difficult times table, by practicing with ONLY 6 times 0, 1, 10 and 11. Once students know this, they can add an additional fact, while constantly reviewing what they already know.
My dad wrote a version of this program for my younger brother and sister years ago. I have used it in my classroom for several years. Students from my class—and others—love to use it for practice. It works like magic!
Best Times Tables Practice EVER! complements my new CD, Best Multiplication Songs EVER! It features simple lyrics and tunes you know. The songs help kids learn their times tables quickly and permanently.
Best Multiplication Songs EVER! is available for purchase at Abligio.com. If your school is interested in buying multiple copies, contact Abligio Books for a special school rate.
I hope that Best Multiplication Songs EVER! and Best Times Tables Practice EVER! help your students as much as they have helped mine.
