NEVER use "skill and drill" worksheets. These are the worksheets just made up of columns of problems. There are better materials out there, so do not resort to skill and drill. The very worst problem of skill and drill worksheets is the greatly increased chance of a practiced mistake. The same problem will likely appear several times on the same sheet. A wrong answer once means a wrong answer several times; and a practiced mistake takes hundreds of correct repetitions to fix. This danger alone is important enough to never use any worksheet. I am quite serious about how difficult it is to repair a practiced mistake. Learning is hard enough. Re-learning is much more difficult.
If your child or student is learning to multiply, a good way to have them start out is learn skip counting. Skip counting is simply counting by a whole number other than one. It is counting by twos, threes, fours, etc. For example, skip counting by twos is the same thing as reciting the two-times tables. So what are the benefits of using playing cards to learn skip counting compared to staring at multiplication worksheets? Well, for one thing, it is not boring! For another, if you are actually counting objects, you have the tactile experience of feeling what you are counting.And there is the fact that you are saying the numbers ,for a reason - after all you are actually counting something.
