marmaladeschool.com presents the first in a series of videos called Handy Times Tables.

I know the one times table. I can count from one to twelve. I can count up and down in ones.

This series is intended for mental-mathematics lesson starters/warm-ups or general multiplication tables practice. By engaging your hands, ears and eyes, this multi-sensory method for learning the patterns of the multiplication tables provides a good rote-learning-style foundation.

This first one (the one times table) obviously doubles up as basic counting practice, counting up and down to twelve.

Please note: this series of videos helps you to become familiar with the multiplication facts in sequence. Once you are confident with these patterns, your next step would be to learn the multiplication and division facts out of sequence, e.g: 3 x 1, 12 x 1, 9 x 1, etc.

Great to see you working again on Marmalade School. Are both voices yours? We have used your method at school. It’s usually me who gets mixed up!
