Mom uses phone as prop to teach times tables, “WOW!”

FEEDBACK TODAY:
“I came across your youtube videos. While I was intrigued by all of them, the tic tac toe for 3′s and 7′s is what really got my attention. So, this morning I took a piece of paper and our telephone and showed her (my 3rd grader) your easy method during breakfast. Now as a parent, you know that there’s not much time on a school morning for breakfast, let alone 2 multiplication lessons. That’s how easy you made learning these times tables. Before breakfast was finished, my daughter was able to draw the tic tac toe tables herself and was excited about it! On the short 8 min ride to school I gave her my cell phone and after reviewing the 3′s and 7′s I showed her the 9′s and Wow! She did it just like that! I’m amazed that she learned this just from one of your videos. Thank you for seeing that children are wonderful learners who learn better outside the box. I am definitely going to be using more of your techniques in helping my daughter (and me too); can’t wait to help her create her own (EZ Times Table) chart.”
Thank You, Stephanie Mark, Relieved Mom of a Third Grader
