    “Daily Times Tables Teasers”

    Nobody should question the fact that having instant recall of multiplication facts is a life skill. Yet persuading young children of the use of such a skill can be quite a challenge – even to the most experienced teacher. So ideas that go beyond chanting and writing down are most welcome.

    John Dabell’s book is packed full of activities to supplement the understanding of multiplication facts. Ideas are varied, appealing to different types of thinkers and learners. Approach varies from individuals, buddies, small group to whole class. Some can be used in a few minutes – perhaps as mental starters or games for the plenary. Others are more involved and could easily form a major part of a lesson. There are even suggestions for how activities may be used outside of formal maths sessions.

    From a busy teacher’s point of view, the layout of the book is simple and extremely helpful. Prompt boxes at the beginning of each activity give clear objectives, indicate preferred learning styles and list resources. Instructions for the activities are straightforward and concise. Many can be used without modification with the children. A particularly useful feature is the extension idea provided with the activities. Grouping the activities according to the type of learning style means a balance over a few sessions is easily achieved. Karen Vive, Binfield C E Primary School, Berkshire

    The book provides a large enough range to accommodate all abilities making it an extremely valuable resource for the whole suggested 7 – 11 age range.  It is a resource which all teachers will find invaluable.
