Students are introduced to each number as a "character." For example, the number seven is Mrs. Weeks because there are seven days in a week. Once students learn the number characters, they learn short, simple stories where the numbers interact in some fashion. Students simply picture two number characters together to recall the story, which includes the answer to the multiplication fact. It's amazing how much easier it is for students to recall a simple story, than an abstract fact!
Once they know the multiplication facts, they'll also automatically know the division facts! All they have to do is picture the story and note which character is missing.

Times Tales made learning her times tables fun and easy. The easy number stories stuck with her and contain all the answers to the multiplication questions. In under an hour and a half, she had memorized all the hard facts and was able to use them quickly and capably. She now wants to teach her cousins the Times Tales!
Grade 3 Mom3 Stars Out Of 5DisappointedFebruary 21, 2012Grade 3 MomQuality: 4Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2I was disappointed in this product. It's not worth the money. I also bought the CD for it the car which was much cheaper but worked better. My experience with the time tables is repetition not a story as they try to do in times tales.
somecallitnatural5 Stars Out Of 5They don't realize they are learning!May 4, 2011somecallitnaturalQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This dvd is great! My 7 and 9 year old both did great with it and know their times tables without even trying. No flash cards, no memorization. So cool. It shocked me. I was a bit skeptical of other reviews/testimonials that kids knew the times tables after one or two times watching the dvd... but they were right. I actually wrote about it on my blog. I hope that others are able to use this dvd and get good use out of it! :)
