Since 1999, the students of Bay View Elementary, in Santa Cruz, CA, have been learning their multiplication facts by using the chants in this book. Originally written for a student who couldn't learn the facts any other way, the chants have helped hundreds of children to joyfully learn to multiply, without stress or worry. Now that I teach kindergarten, I use the chants to teach my 5 and 6 year olds how to skip count. Chant along wit the 3rd and 4th graders on the DVD, read about each chant, see one way to concretely introduce the concept of multiplication to a class or to your child, and learn a simple system for keeping track of progress. Happy Chanting!
