If you want a fun way to practice and master multiplcation facts, go to big brainz for a free basic version of timez attack. It is in video game format which your child should love. From a teacher's point of view, it will greatly benefit your child if they can memorize their facts.
***FYI about the game: We teach multiplication like this 3 x 4 = 12 which equals 3 groups of 4. This game for some reason currently shows this as 4 groups of 3, but multiplcation has a commutative property (3 x 4 = 4 x 3) and it shouldn't cause a problem. I just didn't want any confusion for you or your child.
Another website I just found that looked great is from mathcats. This website has a plethora of information on multiplication.
***note to friends and family--i realize some of my posts are really random. i just write what comes to my wandering mind. maybe this post will give someone info they can use or past on to someone else.
