“I love maths mum, I want to practice my Times Tables every day”!
There might be a few kids who say this but none of my children ever did! But miraculously they do now! Why? Because
invented a Times Table method that is hilariously funny and works.
The majority of children find learning their Times Tables difficult and frustrating but there is a solution, Table
Fables uses animation and humour to teach children maths.
Why Teach Maths Times Tables at all?
Reduces Maths Anxiety:
Children can find Times Table Tests incredibly stressful. If they perform badly in the Times Table Test this
leads them to think they are bad at maths, which isn't true. If children know their Times Tables off by heart
this decreases any anxiety they feel towards maths.
Frees Up Brain Space:
If children have high levels of anxiety surrounding Times Tables this blocks areas in the brain that performs
maths functions. If children know their Times Tables maths anxiety is reduced and the area of the brain that
controls mathematics CAN function properly.
Low Times Tables Knowledge = Low Maths Confidence.
Solid Times Table Knowledge = High Maths Confidence.
Surely my child will learn their Maths Times Tables at School?
The majority of schools will test your children on Times Table recall once a week or once a month. However, very few
schools TEACH maths Times Table recall. A few schools may use the chanting method that was popular decades ago and a
few schools will teach using songs but children have to learn 144 song lyrics, which even Beyonce might struggle
Ask your child how they learn their Times Tables in maths lessons and how confident they feel about them? Heads up,
girls may fess up that they struggle with the maths Times Tables and boys will generally say everything's fine, "I'm
brilliant at maths" even though that's not the case!! Obviously this is a massive generalisation but thought we'd
pass on some observations we've witnessed.
