Who are the cards for?

These cards are best for children in early elementary who are distractable or struggling with math. Having said that, children from ages 3 to 10 can benefit from these cards. For younger children who can be read to in bed, the cards are a great bedtime story. For children who are getting older and need to memorize more difficult multiplication facts, use the card deck to help children memorize the facts they're having more difficulty with.

How many cards are there?

There are 57 cards in this deck, including the instructions: 50 individual multiplication facts with an accompanying story and rhyming memory device, starting with 2x2 and ending with 12x12. 5 multiplication rule cards for 0x, 1x, 10x, 11x rules, and one rule card explaining what is known as the commutative property (in our deck it is called the "order rule"). 1 strategy card that explains five multiplication strategies that can make multiplication easier for your child as they mature along their math journey. 1 instruction card There's also a card with some ads on it.

How do the cards help with memorization of multiplication facts?

ADHD children in particular have trouble with rote learning, but show dramatic improvement when teaching methods include stimulating visual elements. That's why I invented the Multiplication Adventure Deck. The question (7x6) and illustration go with the reminder phrase (warty shoe), and from that phrase it's very easy to remember the answer (42).

How do I use these cards?

1. As a story: The best way to use these cards is to select a series of multiplication facts you want to remember. Choose one of the times tables - 3,4, or 5 for example - and place them in sequence. You can use the first card in the deck as the beginning of the story. And simply read the verses on the back of those cards to create a story using any part of the times tables. 2. As an activity: Teachers have had great success with these cards as a classroom station. Students in grade five loved reading to eachother from the cards.

How old should my child be to use these cards?

The perfect age is early elementary. Grades 1-4 are ideal. However you can use this card deck with children as young as 3 or 4 at bedtime as a soft introduction to multiplication. You can also use them in upper elementary to solidify those facts that are stubbornly difficult to remember.

Do you have a return policy?
