A few years back, I reviewed the Times Tales DVD.
Since then, they have animated it! This is great because it will keep your kid’s attention better.
Times Tales teaches kids multiplication facts through stories with words triggers.
All of the characters in the stories represent a number.
I drew them out with my daughter to help her remember them.
Notice how they all have a number shape on them? I promise they look better on the DVD! :)
Changes on the new DVD
I already mentioned this new version on Times Tales is animated. The last one was cartoonish, but the characters didn’t move. It was more like drawings on screen.
In this one, the characters move more and the drawings are more advanced. I’m impressed!
For me, though, the most important change they made was to the number 6.
The number 6 used to represent the 1st grade class. When I had the old DVD, I always thought that was confusing.
Apparently others agreed with me, because in this new DVD, the number 6 represents the 6th grade class! So much better! Great job Times Tales!
How does it help your kids learn their times tables?
In simplest terms, the DVD teaches your children stories that have characters in them that represent numbers. Those stories will trigger the memories for your kids to retrieve the multiplication facts from their memory bank!
For example… The 6th grade class raised butterflies. At 1 o’clock, they set 8 butterflies free.
So, the 6th grade class represents the number 6, the butterfly is the number 3, and 1 o’clock and the number 8 are the answer… 6 x 3 = 18. Make sense??
It really is crazy how fast your kids will learn their multiplication facts while watching these DVD’s!
How many of you remember having to write our your multiplication facts a million times in school? Or recite them over and over? Or look at flashcards forever trying to memorize them??
It also comes with printable flashcards if your kids like that sort of thing (one of mine does), as well as a game, worksheets and tests.
Here is a video that explains it a little bit.
