    We have already started times tables in third grade this year. I do several things, but when it comes down to it they just have to memorize. I'm a very hands-on teaching person, but I have resigned to the fact that they just have to learn them! I make little booklets for each table(ideas from a teacher book from Scholastic) and we listen to the "Multiplication Rap" and use those "wraps". I also try to "tie in" anything that I can to help them grasp the facts (use nickels and clock{5 min. intervals}for 5's, days of the week for 7's, spider legs for 8's, 6 pack cokes for 6's, etc.) anything!
