Perfect for my third grade classroom:
I love that this cd is so straight forward. Other multiplication songs are long, don't help my students much, and are sometimes painful to listen to. These songs are so quick and they stick. I love it when my class is doing math work and I hear them quietly singing the songs to themselves.

Good for Sixth Graders:
My sixth graders still are still struggling with their facts. The songs made it possible for all students in my class to learn their facts last year and they did well on the state tests. My boys loved the tunes!

Really is Best EVER!!
Wow!! This CD is just what I needed to help get my fifth graders up to speed on their math facts. The catchy songs are great for children...and their short length is great for teachers!

Every teacher should have this CD. For as little as 8 minutes a day, your students will show marked improvement in multiplication skills--and in all the math skills that use multiplication.

Short, sweet, catchy, and instructive. It really is the Best Ever!

Fantastic:
As a teacher, I really like this CD. I love that the songs are short and simple. My students skip count along with the songs and are memorizing their facts faster than ever.

Worked for my kids time and again:
I am a substitute teacher, and I have played this CD often in first, second and third grade classrooms. The students just loved hearing these songs and kept saying "again, again" whenever a song would finish playing. The songs worked especially well for teaching or recall of basic times tables, but I played the songs during many other activities, too -- some suggested by the kids. Here are actual classroom examples:

Skip counting during calendar time. First and second grade classes used the daily calendar to teach time, months of the year, weather, and skills like skip counting. Adding the songs to calendar time during skip counting kept interest up and made for a fun activity. After the first day of a week-long job in first grade, the students clamored for the CD every day.

Freeze Dance. For a few moments at the end of the day, I allowed the students to dance in place while I played the CD as a reward for a good day's work and behavior. I would stop the music mid-song and they would try to freeze in place; whoever was too late to freeze was "out."

Transitions. I asked the students to sing a specific song (for example, "Threes: GO!") while lining up, handing out papers and during clean-up time. Everything went more smoothly when they sang, maybe because it's hard to chat while singing a song!

Time Sponge. Whenever I needed an educational way to fill a few moments of time, the multiplication songs were available in my bag of tricks.

Music Time. The CD bills the music-only tracks as a way to test yourself, but I also used them to let kids sing the original songs. The songs for the lower numbers are really simple, mostly nursery rhyme type tunes. The higher numbered songs have fancier tunes. Some are even classical music, and I found out that many children are quite familiar with and enjoy the tune for the Tens song (Ode to Joy, the final movement in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony).

What I found about teaching multiplication (up through 12 times 12) with the CD: skip counting works! The students did not have to rely on times tables charts as much, since they could skip count while keeping track on their fingers. I watched them sing quietly to themselves during multiplication seatwork and tests. Learning curves were steep. For introduction to multiplication, the Zeroes song teaches that the answer is always the same (zero) and the Ones song teaches that the answer is the same as the number you are multiplying. Even the Tens song helps with a rule that you place a zero at the end of the number you are multiplying to find the answer.

I really like that that this CD does not have equations to sing, like 4 X 4 = 16. Instead, there are short, memorable songs that are easier to memorize because they're so simple. My students have loved learning them!

Great CD!
I am VERY happy with this CD. I home school my 3 kids. Even my 6 year old is singing these songs.....right up to 12! We play it in the van and they all love it.

This really helped my son
This album is good because the songs are so easy to memorize. My son was having trouble learning the times tables. My son picked up the songs very quickly, and it made multiplication much easier. Now, he just counts on his fingers as he sings the songs. Soon, he'll know the facts cold.

Kids often struggle with their multiplication tables, but it doesn't have to be that way.

Spring 2012 Tillywig Brain Child (Books category)

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 know!


go2 Media [family & kids review]

WHAT: When multiplication doesn't add up, kids can tune into the Best Multiplication Songs EVER!  for a little tutoring. Sure, the album sounds a little geeky, but math confidence is cool. The songs are all titled after the numbers that are multiplied; Ones, Twos, Threes, Fours...through Twelves. The melodies for these times tables all come from familiar songs like Pop Goes the Weasel in a very simple, sing-songy approach. And the chances of learning to recite all of the tables in under 8 minutes is really good when 'rithmatic has rhythm.

WHY: Math counts. Don't miss a beat.

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 tables.

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 multiplication tests.
