It really works! Over ten years being used is the classroom is proof. The fifth grade teachers never complain about my students not knowing their multiplication facts. Students enjoy learning this way! This is a Multiplication song which I use to teach the multiplication facts above the 5 times 5 facts. The song contains 10 facts. After students have memorized this song they only need to have learned their facts through 5 to have learned all their facts through the 9's. Any tune can be used with these lyrics, but I like to use the tune of Yankee Doodle to sing it in my classroom. Have fun and use a tune you think your students will enjoy. The more times you sing the song the quicker students will learn. You can add movements also.
