A Multiplication Table is a great way to introduce children to the
connections and repetitions of numbers within the Times Tables but some
can find a Multiplication Table rather daunting.
However, if you learn using the Table Fables method you can recall any
Times Table in or out of sequence. Many children find this clever visual
method much easier and less stressful to remember than merely looking at
a Multiplication Table. And they can retain the information for longer!
This Multiplication Table can be printed off and stuck up on the wall.
You will notice that there are characters instead of numbers down the

WHY LEARN THE MULTIPLICATION TABLE?
Life is much easier for your child when they can simply recall the
Multiplication Table rather than trying to work out the answers.

them to explore other Mathematics-based subjects, such as Physics and
As with walking, children don't want to think about what their
feet are doing, they want to enjoy the adventure. So if children know
all the information on the Multiplication Table automatically, then it
makes diving into other subjects all the more enjoyable and rewarding.
However, learning from a standard, no-frills Multiplication Table can be

learning to a whole new level.
The Table Fables method is based on the scientific peg system of memory,
which helps users retrieve information easily. Every Times Table sum, is

'meet' each other. Laughing while learning helps them
retrieve the information months after seeing each 'fable'.
