Parents can look for fun math games or even worksheets that are designed to challenge and teach the student without intimidating them. Sometimes youngsters enjoy challenging friends or siblings close to their own age to competitive games if they feel that they can show off something new that they have learned. Children are naturally inquisitive and many are blessed with the ability to learn very quickly. Look for ways to take advantage of their natural curiosity and love of games and you might find that the process of learning and practicing multiplication facts does not have to be a painful one.
If you have read my article "Helping Your Child With Basic Arithmetic? Stay Away From Worksheets" then you know that I am not a fan of traditional worksheets. After writing that article, I found another credible teacher who has written many articles expounding on the benefits of worksheets. I decided some clarification of position is in order. The primary problem with most math worksheets is that the problems are already written out and the child need only write the answers. For learning and practicing the basic skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, it is much more beneficial for the child to write out the entire fact and say the entire fact out loud. A child will learn a multiplication fact much faster if they are writing out 6 x 8 = 48 at the same time they are saying "six times eight is forty-eight" than if they just see 6 x 8 = ___ and only have to supply the 48.
