    multiplication rhymes
    By lisa

    Clip to ScrapBook
    My class and I make up rhymes together to help learn multiplication facts. Example: "Jump up and slam the door,'cause 8x8= 64! They love it, and since they help make it up, they remember them better. We then put them on a chart, and post them in the classroom. We also have a problem of the day song that we sing to line up,or during a transition time. Every morning I put a problem on the board, like 7x8=56. Then we sing (Tune: "London Bridge is Falling Down") "7x8=56, 56, 56. 7x8=56. I can multiply!" My kids love it, and know by the time the song is finished, they should be ready to go to the next activity.
