How to use mnemonics to easily memorize the upper 9 times tables with this 15 minute video.
Although there are some great proven programs for dyslexia reading (such as Susan Barton's Reading System), you don't hear too much about math geared for the right-brain, dyslexic student. We mostly think of math as a left-brain learning modality. However there is a mnemonic program called Times Tales® that has great success for learning disabilities (Dyslexia and Dyscalculia).
Mnemonics are such a wonderful right-brain learning tool, it's surprising it isn't being taught in every classroom. This wonderful, visual memory aide is so effective, that kids as young as 5 (who have not yet learned multiplication) can effortlessly recite the upper 9 times tables after being led through the 6 step mnemonic system. It is truly AMAZING to watch! If your child has Dyslexia or Dyscalculia, this might just be the answer to your math struggles. It is a whole different approach to learning but really does work for memorization.
Play the video to see how it works!
This is a condensed version of the full Times Tales® program (for example: printables or division portion not included) but will guide children through the same 6 step system as the full version for the math facts 9x6, 9x7, 9x8 & 9x9.
You can buy the full version of Times Tales® for around $16 (download) or $18 for the DVD or Workbook. Watch the video, if you decide not to get the program, at least your children or students will have those pesky upper 9 times tables memorized, and will have learned a tool to help them memorize just about ANYTHING.
