### Multiplication Website - Music, Strategies, and Activites!

I was searching for new ways to help my next year's class with their multiplication facts and stumbled upon this awesome website!
They break down each set of facts, giving the kids songs, strategies, and practice activities. I can't wait to try it with my kids!

Do you guys know of any other sites or strategies to help the kids with their facts?

2. I really like xtramath.org
teachers or parents can sign-up their students for a free account and practice all their facts and see their progress on graphs - I had my students try it at the end of the school year and they really loved seeing their progress with basic facts.

3. I found your site through your link on 3rd Ning. Glad I did.
My all time favorite site is Multiplication.com. I also use the triangle trio flashcards. I posted about the flashcards on 3rd Ning too.

4. I'm going to check it out. Multiplication facts are always such a challenge for my students. I've also heard a lot about xtramath.org.

5. Thanks for all of your suggestions! I'm excited to try them all with my students next year!

6. I teach 3rd grade as well. This year was the first year we used counting songs with our kids to learn multiplication. We were Amazed at the difference! You will be too. Like the website you shared, we have a song for each number but it's only the #s, no words.

There are a number of different tunes that match, but here's what we did:
3s-jingle bells
4s-row,row,row your boat
6s-mary had a little lamb
7s-take me out to the ballgame or she'll be comin' 'round the mountain
8s-bingo
9s-rudolph

Thanks for stopping by my blog! If you found something useful or interesting, please leave me a comment! I would love to hear from you!

Thanks,
Dana @ 3rd Grade Gridiron
