We need to work TOGETHER to help your child memorize their multiplication facts. They can memorize 144 facts if they follow these 6 Rules. The Fastest Way to Learn Multiplication (video)

Rule 1: Multiply By One- Anything times one is that number. 

Rule 2: Multiply By Ten- Zero is the Hero- Take the number you start with and add a zero.

Rule 3: Multiply By Eleven- Multiply a single digit by 11, it just duplicates itself. 

Rule 4: Multiply by Two- Double the number /or/ Skip count by 2s 

Rule 5: Multiply by Five- Skip count by 5s

Rule 6: Multiply by Nine- There is a finger trick /or/ The product must equal 9.

Lots of people have been notifying us that they are getting a message from AmazonSmile that their charity is not supported by AmazonSmile. You simply need to switch your chosen charity from the old McAlpine PTA to PTO!
