Asked by a Homeschooler on September 27th, 2016

what is the flip book

Asked by a Parent, Teacher, and Super-hero on July 4th, 2016

A mini-flipbook of the Times Tales stories can be purchased in addition to the DVD. This isn't necessary for the core of the program, but some parents find it helpful as a way to reinforce the stories.

Answered by Times Tales on July 5th, 2016

Can you invent one for other math topics like measurement conversions?

Asked by a Parent on June 4th, 2016

Thank you for the suggestion, we will consider that for future product development.

Answered by Times Tales on June 9th, 2016

Does the DVD deal for $19.99 include the bonus division and the printable CD?

Asked by a Homeschooler on May 20th, 2016

Thank you for your question. Yes, the Times Tales DVD includes both division for all 18 multiplication facts plus a CD that has all the print outs for both Parts 1 & 2.

Answered by Times Tales on May 21st, 2016

Which one?!?!
I don't want to buy more than I need, but I don't want to be disappointed either. Unfortunately, these descriptions leave me unsure of exactly what I'll be receiving.
I want to use this program with 3 children who are homeschooled. Two of them are both audio and kinesthetic learners. The third picks up material through conventional methods. Should I use:
1) DVD for $19.99 - and would I need to add on a flip book for $7.99? Just 1, or 1 for each child?
2) Small group for $29.99?
3) Classroom for $39.99?

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.

Asked by a Parent on May 17th, 2016

Thank you for your questions? Times Tales is great for all learners. The Mini Flipbook is a child size book that contains all 18 stories. It is for the child to review the stories on their own. If your children are good at sharing then one or two flipbooks would probably be fine. If not, then you would save money buy ordering the Times Tales Small Group Edition which comes with four Mini Flipbooks. Both Times Tales Classroom Editions includes a large spiral bound flipbook that has all 18 stories in it. It can be used by the teacher to teach the student the stories as opposed to the DVD teaching the program.

    My daughter has always had difficulty memorizing math facts, she just figures them out differently. But the other day while reading "Life of Fred" they had a few mnemonic devices for remembering facts, and so I looked at this again. While eating lunch we watched the first video, and things were clicking! In a half an hour facts were sinking in! Great product!

    My son was starting 2nd grade and I wanted to introduce him to his multiplication facts during the summer. I worked with him on the easy ones and ordered this one for the "harder" ones. When it came in he was so excited that he watched it and completed the lessons by himself one day while I busy. He was so excited to show me his work and tell me the stories -- this is definitely a must have!

    My daughter is in 6th grade this year and we have struggled for the past 3yrs on memorization of multiplication. I saw this product and was really skeptical as nothing else had worked before but decided to give it a shot. I didnt really buy into the comments that said "my kid learned in an hr". However, i sat down with my 11 & 9yr olds and watched the dvd (at the time thinking it was designed for much younger kids). Seriously.... they watched the dvd once for a total of an hour and i am not kidding, they can answer any multiplication i throw at them now! I am simply amazed that after 3yrs of struggles she watched one video ONCE and now has them all memorized!!!!!
    I definitely reccomend this product! Best decision i have made & my daughters confidence is so much higher now! Thank you!!!!!

  • Little confusing sometimes , but still reccomend
    Aug 08, 2016

    We have four kids benefitting from this dvd series all at once. I am a little disappointed in one of the stories (8*3=21) because the answer is 20 butterflies are in the net and one landed on her head. The answer is 20 plus 1 on that fact, while on all the others, the answer is not the numbers added together but one symbolizing the tens place while another symbolizing the ones place (like in the 7*4=28 story). I realize that doesn't make sense to those who haven't watched the videos, but it's an inconsistency that should have been caught. My older kids make fun of the animation, and my oldest math phobe (12) was in rebellion to it, but I think she will come around when the enthusiasm from her younger siblings seeps in. My 8 year old son (loves math anyway though) really got it quickly and couldn't wait to do the worksheet. My 10 year old daughter (not as math phobic, but loves to memorize just for the fun of it) got is super quickly as well. I'd say, prepare yourself for a fight if your kid has already struggled big time with multiplication tables or has a lot of practice figuring them out a different way. It will take them time to adjust to this other way of memorizing them. But it will still work if you keep at it. But for those barely entering multiplication table memorization, you are probably not going to hear as much complaining. This is something you could easily make up yourself, but when you are as limited in time as I am, just buy the video. I'm reccomending it to any who will listen :)

  • It works, but my daughter doesn't enjoy it.
    Aug 08, 2016

    We have been trying many things to help my math-phobic daughter to memorize her multiplication facts. This DVD lays out the facts attached to pictures which helps get them locked in the brain for those who learn through pictures. When she gets stuck now, I mention the "story" and most of the time it is instant recall to the answer. But she doesn't enjoy the style/music/etc of the program - not sure if she feels like it is to "babyish" (she is 11) but since it works, we watch it every couple of weeks for review and she deals.

    We purchased this after watching the sample video. My daughter loved it and had learned 4 new times table facts in 10 minutes. She was so excited to continue so I bought the DVD. $19.99 was the cheapest price I had seen this offered for so I ordered from Educents. It came with a DVD with that included all of the stories and quizzes, and also a CD with the printables. My daughter knew all of the stories and times tables offered on this DVD in 1 hour...SERIOUSLY. The best part is that she has retained all of it . I know because I test her daily and she is simply getting faster and faster in her response time! My 6 year old loves this as well and we will be using this for him soon. DO NOT HESITATE TO BUY THIS TODAY!!!!!!

    Best money spent on math. It really worked. One view of the animation and one set of worksheets. Within a week my 9 and 11 year old completed 110 problem text with scores of 99% and 100% respectively. Wow, such a great idea of obvious logic, giving children some sort of reference that they can remember. It's brilliant. Stop nagging them and buy this.

    My 9 yr old could not pass all of the multiplication facts tests last year after countless hours working with traditional flash cards.-the rote memorization just didn't work with her. When I saw this method I thought this just might be the angle she needs and bought it. It came in just two days and she watched it immediately. She loved the stories--they are simple and she got the connection to the traditional math facts right away. She did part 1 the first day and mastered that in about an hour. She begged me to do part two the next day and so I let her. She knows them all now --to say I'm pleased and amazed would be an understatement. Thank you for offering such a great new way for kids to learn facts--it worked like a charm for us!

    Jul 12, 2016

    My older son learned his times tables easy as pie just by memorizing cold hard facts. However, my 9 year old daughter, who is extremely bright, was struggling with multiplication facts. She was so discouraged all last school year. We tried many strategies and I made it my goal for her to know them all before summer was over and we went back to school. Saw an ad for Times Tales on Facebook and I thought I'd give it a try. I can't believe the dramatic change in her attitude and how much her confidence soared after only a few minutes! Those little stories stuck in her mind and she knows her times tables after only a few days. The program asks you to stay with one section for a week before moving on, but she was so excited, she was very anxious to move on. This has been an answer to prayer. I was starting to think I would never find out what way she learned math, and that I'd never be able to teach her. Learning the division facts was also an unexpected bonus!

  • The PERFECT solution!
    Jul 11, 2016

    Our 10 year old has Asperger's Syndrome, and math is a huge challenge for him. He finds it overwhelming and cannot get past the panic that he feels when presented with multiplication and division problems. As you can imagine it makes homework very, very difficult. A few months ago I saw a small ad for Times Tales and researched the product when I had some spare time. I have to admit that I was pretty skeptical but hopeful, and when I showed my son the preview of the program he was not impressed. Undaunted, I ordered the product anyway and laid down the law; we were going to watch it together and reassess how he felt about it.
    We started the program on June 28th and wouldn't you know it, he loved the characters and the stories! We went through the whole first section and did the quizzes. He remained unsure of the division, but mastered the multiplication of section one within hours. We continued to use the flash cards and discuss how division works over the next 11 days and on the 12th day he mastered all the level one division as well!
    I can't begin to tell you how this has changed his math abilities and boosted his confidence. He was so excited to start the next section, and as we began to watch it on day 12 I could see everything falling into place for him! He would listen to a story and then blurt out the problem and answer. (So 9x9 is 81!) I'm so proud of him, he's so proud of himself and I will be forever thankful for such an amazing program that has taught my son multiplication and division in a way that he can understand.

    Jun 04, 2016

    I cannot begin to describe how happy I am with this product. We have a daughter who is ADD and has a really hard time focusing. We struggled with her on multiplication for 4 months. We tried everything (games, flashcards, workbooks, other videos, etc). I was at my wits end. Nothing stuck. Finally someone suggested Times Table DVD. Within three weeks she mastered her multiplication. She could answer every problem within 3 seconds. She is now more confident. I cannot thank you enough. Thank you.

  • Even my 6-year-old learned multiplication!
    May 26, 2016

    I made the decision to purchase the Times Tales DVD because my oldest was struggling with multiplication. I was skeptical because the learning method is unconventional; the animated stories teach children to learn multiplication facts by memorizing a seemingly unrelated story. For example; Mrs. Snowman (8) climbs on a chair (4) to retrieve three buttons and two mittens (32). I watched the DVD with my children. The animation was poor but miraculously both my 9-year-old and my 6-year-old started to retain the information after one viewing. The only draw back is that my 6-year-old, who is still learning addition in school, was getting the concept of multiplication confused with addition and thus getting addition questions wrong.
    The set includes one DVD and one printables CD. Unfortunately many newer laptops no longer have a disk drive and the printables are not available online.
    The DVD is broken down into two lessons. Each lesson explains the characters, tells a story, has a quiz and a test. They recommend waiting a week between sections so that the child has time to practice and absorb information from the first lesson.
    I highly recommend this set for both parents and teachers. I only wish that I had purchased it earlier and I have told all of my friends about it.

    May 23, 2016

    My 10 yr old just couldn't memorize his facts no matter what we did. As a last ditch effort I bought this DVD. I was worried because it was a bit "young" for him, but just wanted him to learn. Guess what? He is now passing in school and barely asking for help. I think schools should incorporate this method into their classrooms. The DVDs would appeal to the children and make Teacher's lives so much easier.

    Andrea B - Parent - Member Since February 2016
  • This definitely helps!
    May 19, 2016

    I have found that this works, but it takes longer for the child to retrieve the answer from memory as they have to first translate the numbers to the characters in the story, then remember the story that had those characters in it to retrieve the answer from their brains. Memorizing mult. Families is a much quicker way of memory retrieval, but for those struggling to memorize their math facts, this is an alternate way that works...but I have found children need more time to think run the storis through their heads before they are able to find the answer. Makes speed drills take longer than expected, but it still works.

  • Miracle
    May 02, 2016

    We tried every method of teaching times tables to our dyslexic daughter. Memorization was out of the question. We taught her all the tricks to easily figuring out the times tables. We tried the wrap-ups. So many different things, and they all failed.

    With times tales was a miracle. Within a few weeks, she had them down. I was so amazed! We went through Part 1 on the DVD on the first day and watched the Part1 stories every day that week. Then, we spend the next week utilizing the worksheets included on the disk. The third and fourth weeks, we did the same process with Part 2. I am not sure the extra week of practice was necessary, but I wanted to be sure she had them down. And, now she does!

    Even my gifted older child said that he wishes he had this when he was learning his times tables. It works for all ability levels and for a range of ages. In fact, sometimes I catch myself thinking of the stories when multiplying! : )

    I highly recommend Times Tales.

    May 02, 2016

    My son (8) is a concrete thinker and excellent at pure memorization. He had a hard time with this at first. When I got him to stop trying to see the answers and to just follow the story he did great and memorized these facts in no time. Meanwhile, my abstract thinking daughter (6) that doesn't want to learn anything accidentally learned most of the upper times tables. This program ended up being something that my son enjoyed, and possibly gave me a key to getting my daughter excited about learning. Thank you!

    My older two girls were still skip counting to figure out multiplication problems. A friend on Facebook posted about Times Tales. I decided to give it a go and was so happy to see how quickly my oldest picked up the stories and was able to transfer that knowledge to her facts tests. The younger daughter knows the stories (she's in first grade) but it take her a little longer to transfer the thinking (this could be an age thing or attention thing ;)) Even my four and five year old love the characters and know the stories!

    Apr 18, 2016

    My daughter was having trouble with multiplication. It was painful watching her struggle. She knew quite a but had anxiety over not recalling facts more quickly or not using her fingers to count. This program has helped make math fun again!

  • Painless Math.
    Apr 12, 2016

    My 8 and 10 year old learned their upper times tables in less than two weeks using this video. It was a little confusing to my 12 year old, I think because he already knew the facts really well. If you have any learners that haven't mastered them yet though, I highly recommend this product. Fun, practical, and painless.

  • Fantastic!
    Apr 12, 2016

    My 7 year old hasn't even begun to learn his times tables yet and after watching this once, he picked up so much! Definitely a great resource.

    We were very confused when we first started watching because we clicked on the flash cards and questions before watching the stories. Make sure you start with step one! And don't be turned off by the weird's worth it!

    Great tool and investment for children struggling with multiplication and division! I am SO impressed with this DVD and worksheets that I've recommended it multiple times to fellow homeschoolers in my area!! Thank you for helping my sons learn the valuable information that they've gained by watching these videos!

    I watched this DVD with my 8 year old son and was amazed at how easy the stories were to remember. After only one viewing, he was able to recall each story and was excited to tell them to his older sister. I would highly recommend this DVD as a great tool for learning multiplication!

  • I was skeptical for the first segment, but now I'm a believer.
    Apr 11, 2016

    When I learned multiplication, back in the dark ages in the 3rd grade, my teacher gave us all a cassette tape (my age is showing!) with songs to teach us all of the times tables. It worked. I listened to those songs until the tape was practically worn through, and I know my tables like the back of my hand. I've searched in vain for those songs on the internet when my oldest son was learning his tables, and was unsuccessful. When my youngest son is ready to learn them, I tried again, and this time, I came across raves about Times Tales, and I decided that for the price, it was worth a try. When the first segment started playing, I was skeptical. VERY skeptical. But when the review came up, my six year old was spitting out factors like he'd been doing it his entire life. It took a lot of effort to convince him to follow the instructions and wait a week to play the upper times tales, and he caught on to them just as quickly. We did the worksheets and flash cards daily in between, and the results speak for themselves. I'm beyond impressed. I'd definitely recommend this program, including the practice worksheets, flashcards, and game located on the printable CD. My son enjoys the stories, and it has translated into a solid foundation into multiplication.

  • It Works!!!!
    Apr 06, 2016

    I had been doing tons, and tons of different things with my students, and I could not get them to remember their times tables. I bought this, and I was very skeptic I had tried so many things, why would this be different?
    As soon I we got it the kids were so excited they put the DVD in, and watched. As we watched I thought, 'wow this makes so much sense, but I don't know if the kids will get it'. Well I tend to have a bad habit of underestimating kids minds, they totally got it! Even the younger student who aren't doing times tables understand it! Not only do they understand, but it is also fun they watch it everyday! I am very happy with this purchase, and recommend this to any mom/teacher who is teaching times tables, or division.

    Apr 06, 2016

    Ok so by the 5th rewind we did to watch again mommy again I had it all stuck in my head!!! Haha my 8 year old loved it and while my toddler really doesn't understand she enjoyed watching it and attempting to sing along. Fun for the whole family and a great visual with music for learners who may struggle

    Apr 04, 2016

    I ordered this for my 8 year old son. He was a bit shy using it. He did watch it couple times (along with my 9 and 3 year old). He's like, I want to do multiplication the normal way. But when doing his math and he would ask me for help on the upper times tables, I would remind him of the characters used, and he would remember the answer, no problem. My 3 year old knows at least half of the stories and the answers now. She does recognize ALL the characters for the numbers given. This is a great tool. I recommend to my cousin also, and she purchased for her children also.

  • Wonderful way to memorize facts!
    Mar 19, 2016

    I was so excited to receive this DVD, but I was not prepared for how wonderful it would be! Few things exceed expectations in the way this learning tool did. I purchased it as a reinforcement tool for my middle schooler and she has really benefitted from it. As an added bonus, my preschooler is also well on his way to learning his multiplication facts, too! I am so excited for how this is going to help both of my children excel in math. As a homeschooling mom, this is probably one of the best tools in my arsenal!! I would highly recommend purchasing this product! :)

    Mar 19, 2016

    Even after reading all the wonderful reviews, I was a little skeptical, but I was willing to try anything to help my 9 yr. old learn her multiplication facts. We followed this program and the results were remarkable! The very day that she viewed the first video - she remembered her facts! She has completely learned all of them now and if she gets stumped, I hear her reciting the story! Wish they had this program for addition and spelling! lol Definitely a good buy! I HIGHLY recommend it!

  • Remarkable!
    Mar 18, 2016

    I bought this for my 8 year old son. He struggled with learning his multiplication tables before. Once we started this, it was amazing how quickly he caught on and still remembers them to this day and that's been over a month ago. He excelled so quickly that it was remarkable. I would recommended this product to every person. He loves stories and loves to tell stories so this product grabbed his attention very quickly. He still loves to tell me the stories when he's working his math problems. I thank God for leading me to this particular product. It has definitely been a wonderful find for our homeschooling family!

    My 2nd grade son (8 yrs old) was recently diagnosed with ADHD and this completely held his attention. In 2 weeks he had it down! (They suggest you do Part 1 one week and Part 2 the following.) His class is being taught a different way that is very tedious and he loses attention. I just ordered the addition and subtraction cd's by Times Tables to reinforce that as well. Very very impressed!!!!

    I purchased it particularly for my 3rd grader, but my 5th grader has enjoyed the stories too. I've noticed improvement and less anxiety in my kids over math. My older one was ok, but it does help for the review and for those that could be better at their times table. It makes it easy and fun!

    My grandson has struggled with his multiplication facts for years. He sat with me one afternoon and after watching the video one time, he was getting it. I wasn't because I was trying to read into it too much, but he was doing what the video asked him to do and he got it. Amazing how he learned in 30 minutes what I have tried to teach him in hears. Try it, it is worth it.

  • My daughter Loves this DVD !
    Feb 27, 2016

    My daughter is 8 and I was having a hard time helping her learn her times tables. She would cry. I bought this due to the fact my daughter is a visual learner. At first she didn't want to watch it but with some pushing she did. After watching it once she got the first half and second half with the second sitting. She has went from 60% on tests to 100%. She even told me last week that she didn't want to admit it but she liked the DVD and said it was fun. I would recommend this to any parent .

    My second grader knows the basics of multiplication but that is all. I turned on this video and in ½ an hour he was able to solve the first set of problems in second and even was able to extend that to devision. While it is imperative that the children understand why the answer is what it is, this program is so much easier that regular memorization and is actually fun! What a great tool. Love it!!!

    Purchased this product after reading the reviews on facebook, and I could be more impressed with it! I am a homeschooL mom with a second grader that had not even been introduced to multiplication yet, and a third grader that was struggling. They watched the DVD''s together and my second grader picked it up right away!!! The third grader can fly through the multiplication tables now. This has been such a help and blessing for my kids. I plan to pass the DVD's on to someone else that needs them. I would recommend this product to everyone. The stories are captivating, and it's an ingenious way to teach multiplication to kids of any age and ability. Another perk was the reasonable price. It shipped almost immediately and I received it within a day of ordering. I can't praise Educents, or the program enough. I was having trouble checking out the day I ordered, due to the credit card processing being temporarily down, and Katie from Educents contasted me that day and we got it figured out. This is a 5 star company for produces and customer service.

    Feb 01, 2016

    I admit, I was skeptical. Even though my sister told me her 7 year old had learned the times tables easily using Times Tales, I wasn't convinced that it would be so easy for my struggling 9 and 10 year olds. We were trying everything, and they were working so hard! Within a couple of days of part one, they had the facts mastered. I waited until the next week to introduce part two because I wanted the first part to "stick". By day two of the second week, all the facts were mastered. Now, there is little to no hesitation when using these facts for longer multiplication and division problems! A good investment - especially since I have three younger children that will be using this tool in the coming years.

    I was skeptical that this program would work as easily and quickly as some reviews I read had claimed, but I was ready to try something new with my 8 year old who was struggling to learn times tables. It is truly AMAZING! My child watched the first half of the dvd and immediately knew the tables covered. We didn't wait long to do the second half bc she was anxious to learn more. She quickly picked up the second half as easily as the first. This works wonders for right brained children. I am so happy I tried it and have been telling all my homeschooling mom friends about it!

    I was ready to try anything to reduce the stress of learning times tables with my 8 year old daughter. I was so tired of all the tears. This was the best $20 I've ever spent and we've only done the first part. She knew all of part one as soon as it was over and is begging to watch part 2, but they suggest you wait a week before going into part 2. I can't say enough about how great it is. I never thought I'd see her excited about math.

  • Pleasantly Surprised!
    Dec 16, 2015

    I was a little skeptical that this would actually work. I bought it to work with a couple of students with learning disabilities. My experience has been that many students with learning disabilities tend to be visual and learn better and faster when they have visuals tied to learning. This did just that.

    I would highly suggest that for any child you use this with, you teach the CONCEPT of multiplication first. I worked with these 2 students on forming arrays, the concept of repeated addition and skip counting before we ever looked at this video. If your child doesn't understand the concept, he/she won't know when or how to use multiplication and just knowing an answer to multiplication problem will not be very practical.

    That said, once a child understands the concept, this is fantastic for helping students remember their facts. I love it!

    My only other "criticism" would be that it states it is not for "classroom" use, specifically not for groups of more than five. I don't recall reading this in the description, so I might have been very upset if I had been a classroom teacher ordering for a complete classroom. Thankfully, I located a version on the Times Tales website sold for classroom teachers. This is a great find!

    This DVD is not only fun, but it works just as expected. My daughter was so excited after watching the DVD... I printed up one of the tests and she couldn't wait to do the test! Even our almost 3 year old is learning the character names and I expect will be soon learning the times table too!

    After working with a student for several months with little progress, I saw an add for times tales. Within the first 20 minutes of watching, the student was seeing success and answering the problems faster than the dvd! :) Praise God for this program!

    Where has this been all my life? WHY didn't anyone think of this when I was a kid? I've been struggling right alongside my 10yo, striving for rote memorization of facts. She can skip count like no other (because she has songs), but can't seem to just KNOW them outside of her songs. Now my 7yo is learning her multiplication facts right alongside her big sis! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that division is thrown in here so they can instantly see the correlation (fact families). My child isn't scared of the word division anymore (or multiplication, for that matter)!

    This product is awesome! We have tried everything to get our kids to learn their times tables and nothing worked until now. Great little stories that help kids and adults remember the facts!

    I was impressed how quick my daughter answered all the multiplication and division questions. When she saw the division she thought she wouldn't know the answer to it, but she did and she got more excited to learn it

  • We are THANKFUL for Times Tales!!!
    Nov 30, 2015

    Times Tales has been such a gift to our family! My 9 year old son has been working on memorizing his times tables for the past year and a half. It has been a point of absolute frustration and we have tried everything (drills, tricks, fable stories, games etc.). We found Times Tales here on Educents and thought, "Why not try this too?" We tried out the free 9's on the website and by the end he KNEW his 9's table. I quickly ordered the rest and it has been AMAZING how quickly he has picked up his times tables, not to mention he LOVES the silly stories. My six year old is learning them a long side him as well!!!!

    This program has changed math for him and has been such a blessing to our family. We have recommended it to other homeschooling families (and other public school friends) and I know that the families who have ordered it have also had AMAZING success!

    Thank you for your brilliant, story approach to this challenging task. I can't say enough about how WONDERFUL your program is and I WILL continue to refer people to you. I just wish you had been around when I was teaching third grade!!!!

    Thank you so much!

  • Loved it!

    I am homeschooling my 7yr old because she was ahead and we wanted to go at her pace. I got this DVD a week ago and she has requested to watch it every day since. The DVD does a wonderful job of taking kids through each step and the stories are short and sweet. The 7yr old has pretty much memorized the first part of the DVD and even my 5yr had picked up on some of it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone (I already have been telling friends and family for their kids).

    I homeschool my 7 yr old daughter. She is a year advanced and in the gifted and talented glass for 3rd grade. I purchased this when we started the multiplication tables and this has helped her immensely! Within 45 minutes she had memorized all of the upper times tables! Thank you for such an innovative product. What an excellent way to learn!

  • Fantastic!
    Nov 16, 2015

    I had everyone 6th grade and under, watch this video! They are all doing multiplication much better! The only downside is that none of our computers have a cd drive, so we have to go to the library for the printouts. Something to consider....

  • Worth its weight in gold
    Nov 14, 2015

    The best resource for homeschooling by far! My second grader (who is working on subtraction) watched this with my fourth grader and she now has multiplication memorized. Love it!

  • It's impossible NOT to learn your times tables with these stories
    Nov 10, 2015

    What child doesn't like animated stories? This is such a painless way for kids to memorize their times tables and division. If you don't tell them, they won't even realize they are learning math. We have had the DVD for a week and my eight year old has watched it three times and is catching on perfectly. He wants to race ahead to the next step, but we are following the instructions religiously. I wish I would have had this program for my older kids. It is definitely worth the money.

  • Kids learned multiplication tables within the afternoon!
    Nov 06, 2015

    This product is amazing and changed everything. My kids used to CRY when we had to work on math. My daughter could just not graph the times tables. We saw this product on Educents and read the reviews and watched the sample. I knew I had to get it for my kids. Literally changed the way we learn and I wish they had this for every math subject. Trust me, you will love it. Buy it and you won't regret it.

  • Changed everything for my right brained learner!
    Nov 02, 2015

    We've been struggling for 3 years to get the tables to "stick" in my right-brained dyslexic learner's brain. Nothing doing until Times Tales. The illustrations have finally given him something his brain can reference. In one week, he has the facts nailed! Anyone with a dyslexic child will realize the significance when I say... CONSISTENTLY nailed!

    Our 4th and 2nd grade children have watched along and are also now effortlessly able to recite the facts because they really enjoyed the stories. They all three begged for the worksheets to be printed!

    Times Tales worked for all the learning styles in our home, but is a special gift to those whose children or students learn better from images or stories.

  • Fun and effective! Did in 2 weeks what other curriculum didn't do in a year!
    Oct 02, 2015

    My kids did NOT want to like this when I first opened it up, but they ended up liking it a LOT! They kept trying to "figure it out" so it took a while for my 2nd and 4th grader to just relax and watch the stories. We followed the recommended pace, and in 2 weeks this DVD solidified what other methods could not do for them in a year! Even my 3 yr old shouts out the answers to some of the quiz questions! Of course she doesn't understand what she's learning yet, but when her time comes, learning her multiplication facts will be painless and easy :) Definitely recommend this program to anyone who has stressed over drilling boring multiplication facts into their kids! You WILL Love it! :)

    I played this for my second child when we started our multiplication tables and it definitely helped her understand multiplication much quicker than my previous techniques of giving my eldest worksheets and drill the heck out of multiplication facts.

    This DVD starts out with stories and weaves the math facts so there's context behind why and how she's supposed to multiply. I let her watch a chapter, pause, and use worksheets I find online to put it in practice. I must say this strategy is much more engaging and faster than teaching by hand without context.
