Times Tales: A Product Review

7:55:00 AM



Hey y'all!

As you may know we are pretty new to the whole home school thing ( well in our 2nd year) and I am always looking for resources and new ways that make learning easy and fun. So after literally a year and a half of researching, trial and error and tears, we have finally found what works best for us! You can read all about the curriculum we have chosen on this blog post HERE!

But, in this post I wanted to talk more about our discovery and journey with Times Tales! During the summer, I was chosen by the Times Tales company to try out their product and to give an honest review. And I gotta be honest, it was not what I thought it was going to be... it is GREAT!!

At first, I thought it was going to be another DVD that focuses on memorizing flash cards and be totally boring. I was very pleased to see it was not like that at all! I have been using Times Tales for Thailand because she is a visual learner and I know that seeing things worked out in front of her really helps with her memory and orthographic processing. Orthographic processing is when you are able to retain information better by associating it with pictures. And Times Tales does that perfectly! The short stories are easy to follow along and definitely assist with retaining the problems and answers.

Thailand has been using Times Tales for a few weeks where she would watch it everyday (m-f), but e have scaled back to only once a week now so she can fully catch up with her addition and subtraction of larger numbers.

Also, along with the Times Tales DVD, we received a free ZONE CLEANING book! The kids and I love using this book! It helps them keep their room and living spaces clean (most of the time) and organized. I love how it guides them through a simple process and prevents them from feeling over whelmed when things pile up or they don't know where something belongs. However, we do not use the basket system because the lack of space but they are able to still follow the steps. Plus they like checking off each others work!

Over all I am very pleased with Times Tales and how it has helped Thailand with multiplication. Home schooling can be really tough, especially when home schooling 3 kids at once and one having learning disabilities. Times Tales definitely makes me feel confident when thinking about Thailand (and later the others) and her multiplication facts.

I strongly urge you to check into Times Tales if you are looking for a way to teach your child (or self) multiplication. You can read more about the company and their purpose over at TimesTales.com!

Have you used this product before? How do you teach multiplication in your home? Let me know in the comments below!
