I'm starting Cole on multiplication. I'm showing him what multiplication is (2+2+2 or 2*3) and we've been doing drills, one number set per week (2 tables last week, 3 tables this week). I can't really get any games going until he knows a few of the answers or he'll melt down.
How did you guys take on multiplication? I don't know if we will continue on this way or not. Cole has unique personality so I'm sort of feeling my way as we go.
Did you stop all other Math while learning it or did you continue on with other things like 3 digit subtraction, time, money, whatever?
I find myself doubling up on lots of things to make up for lost time. Until Cole's eyesight was corrected we did everything out loud. We are still transitioning and catching up on things that we couldn't do.
