  • I made charts for my daughter and made her fill them in every day. I think it helped her see the patterns. We also quizzed her on a certain group for several days before moving on. We'd always go back to earlier groups and quiz her again. Eventually she knew them all.

  • Does your son like computer games? Try this.Timez attack. It is set in a castle. Perfect,especially for boys. The version from 2s to 12s is free. My son played this for a month and had them memorized. Sometimes you have to make learning fun when the old ways are not working.

  • Use M + Ms = 3 groups of 4 M & Ms is 12 (also have it written on a flashcard once they've seen it with M & M's)

  • I used flash cards and timed tests. We did one number at a time. Once that number was memorized, I moved to the next and did mixed time tests to keep them up on the numbers they already learned.

  • Flash cards and memorization with the timed tests, one set at a time, when he has learned all of one set, move to the next.
