Awards for Best Multiplication Songs EVER!
Just as many of us learned our ABCs
almost without trying by singing them to the tune of 'Twinkle, Twinkle,
Little Star,' kids can now memorize times tables to the tune of eternal
favorites like 'Pop Goes the Weasel,' and 'My Bonnie Lies over the
Ocean.' The specially written, easy-to-memorize lyrics are playful and
efficient. With a different song for each times tables 1 through 12,
(and another for multiplication by zero), kids can sing the whole kit
and caboodle in just 8 minutes. Each of the 13 songs appears twice, once
with lyrics and once without, enabling kids to practice both ways. This
is also a wonderful tool to use along with the Best Multiplication
Workbook EVER! (See current Tillywig review under Books). An engaging,
fun, spirited approach to learning something every one of us needs to
Children learn their ABCs by singing the
tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. It’s powerful learning. People
still sing this little tune as they alphabetize words. Best
Multiplication Songs EVER! helps kids learn multiplication just as
easily. Simple lyrics. Kids can sing the times tables in 8 minutes. Kids
can even count on their fingers during testing as they sing the songs to
themselves. Just like the alphabet, kids will easily learn the times
Students can access their times tables using multiple
intelligences: linguistic, logical/mathematical, musical, and bodily
kinesthetic. The result is that students learn more quickly, more
permanently, and make connections to learning. In teacher terms, the
songs build a prior knowledge.
Times tables are boring, difficult, and
abstract to most children. The songs put the times tables in students’
heads—prior knowledge that makes the task of memorization easier.
Children will enjoy singing the songs as they complete multiplication
practice sheets. The CD includes music-only performance tracks to make
it easy to reinforce learning through repetition and kinetic activities.
As further value-added enhancements, additional free resources are
available on the Abligio.com website, including free computer programs
that can be downloaded for kids to practice and take timed
