Learn How You Can Use Strategy Instruction To Really Build Multiplication Fact Fluency!

Are you tired of...

4

Students struggling to memorize multiplication facts–when they really don’t even understand what multiplication IS?

4

Having to hunt for organized multiplication fact activities that are engaging, low-prep, and actually work?

4

Not knowing where to focus your energy (and your students’ energy!) because you aren’t sure what they know and what they don’t know?

Does this sound familiar?

* Your students don’t have their multiplication facts memorized–and they don’t even seem to really understand the concept of multiplication.

* Not only that, but your curriculum is PACKED, so you aren’t sure how you will ever find the time to work in these critical multiplication activities.

* You KNOW that having fact fluency makes upcoming skills so much easier, but you know rote memorization is not the solution.

* Your curriculum and math program simply do not give you enough support when it comes to teaching and reinforcing multiplication fact fluency.

What if I told you there was a solution?

I totally get it. I've been there. TRUST me.

It’s funny.  I’ve been teaching a really long time–more than thirty years in grades 2, 3, 4, and 6.  During that period of time, I’ve NEVER had a class where I thought, “Man, ALL of these students already know their facts.  What will I do now?”

Fact fluency has always been a topic of debate.  I’ll be honest–I’ve even wrestled with it myself.  SHOULD students have to learn their facts?  How fast should they be?  I think we can all agree–when they know them well, the rest of their math “lives” are so much better.

The question is really HOW should they learn these facts.  I have the answer–and it’s all based on multiplication strategies.  Read on and see what I mean!


Imagine that you could have a plan to improve your students' multiplication fact fluency--and it would be all organized for you so there is no stress and no guesswork.

(and what if I told you your students would love it?)
