These are the same rhymes used in my Tabletop Times Tables Tents Fact Fluency Bundle, but printed in a quarter-page format for those kiddos who are overwhelmed by too much text on one page.
These are NOT the same rhymes as in my Multiplication Rhymes: 15 Toughest Facts posters.
All stories are between a 2.3 and 3.5 GE reading level, providing equitable access for students reading below grade level, who need fluency practice the most!
Visual, auditory and linguistic learners are especially drawn to multiplication rhymes as they enable them to build a mental schema around the math, facilitating memorization.
Studies show reading fluency improves when students read and reread short, engaging texts at an appropriate reading level.
Reading and re-reading jokes aloud and reciting rhymes helps struggling readers with prosody, a crucial component of reading fluency.
Each rhyme is printed twice for use with partners: One with the first verse in bold print, the other with the second verse in bold print. Color coding keeps the facts organized and partners on the same page.
Also included! Colorful tabletop tent with full set of 9s times tables rhymes for full-class practice, RTI groups, etc.
