Skip Counting Songs to Learn Multiplication and Division
I was slow to get her oldest to master multiplication facts. By the middle of third grade, my daughter was tested weekly on multiplication; times twos, times five and times ten were not so hard but then all of a sudden, we had a week to learn x3, then another week for x4, and on and on. Yikes. A fast way to learn multiplication was in order. Luckily, my mom friend was a third grade teacher. She found that some children learn very effortlessly though song. These are the skip-counting songs that she taught in her classroom. Although, my daughter wasn’t that excited to sing these songs, hearing them sung incessantly helped her to master multiplication, and these songs work even better for division.
