Reviewing times tables: How often?

How often do you review times tables with your child?  Daily?  Weekly?  Do you review them until they can answer quickly without hesitation or counting?

We review all math facts while in the car driving. Some kids do addition, some do subtraction and some do multiplication. :)

We are constantly working on them.  LOL

My oldest just said to me at the lunch table "Mommy I know what 5x4 is!".  Great what is it...20.  I know what 5x10 is...wonderful what is it?....50.  This stuff happens ALL the time around here.  I love when they give me this giant math problem while we ar out and I need paper and pencil....and don't have it.

My brother did that with my niece and it really helped a lot!

My kids will either blurt out facts or go through a volunteer review on their own or I just surprise quiz them and then let them know what, if, they need to work on. After going through them rigorously for about a week or two while doing their other math and other subjects.

We review them when we use them. We seldom do it purposely except for special activities or projects. I prefer my kids memorize them as they use them.

I would use free Read-Along Math Rap Songs and lessons. Instead of memorizing math facts with little understanding. The sequence is taught in song and the math patterns are discovered by the child and therefore better understood and remembered . You invert these to get division.

The TWOS, as an example:

We pretty much just do their curriculum and use math websites for games and online flash cards. I'm too busy with 4 of them to review them otherwise.

Of course, if this wasnt working, I would have to change. However, the older two know them better than me.
