Wow.  I am VERY impressed with this program by Alan Walker!  Check it out at multiplication.com.  My student, Khalil, is now up to facts through 7 x 3.  We just met after a long break and he remembered all but one fact.  That is remarkable!  On a timed quiz today, Khalil scored 95% on his times tables.  If you haven’t been following this blog, Khalil is a fourth grader who had not previously memorized ANY math facts, not even addition.  He is so thrilled and expresses a new confidence about his math skills.  I am obviously very pleased that I tried this program!  Not every child’s brain struggles to memorize facts, but what a perfect strategy for those kids who do.  I had my doubts, but now I’m a believer!
