We started multiplication with Kolby about 2 weeks ago.

Honestly, I think it is just basic memorization! We've struggled with my oldest son with multiplication to the point where he gets pulled for a few minutes each day to work on his multiplication tables. One thing that seems to motivate him is the fact that he has a reward chart and gets a special treat/privilege when he successfully memorizes a certain amount of them. Maybe that would help?

I was just googling Schoolhouse Rock this morning! I loved those shows as a kid. Thanks! Wonder if they're on Netflix.
