Times Tables for Beginners

I’m teaching my seven year old his times tables at the moment. It’s a rather monotenous affair, although I have typically tried to help him understand what’s going on witth objects etc, as well as rote.

I’ve made up some number grids for him that mix up the usual 10 x 10 so that he can see the patterns a little more clearly.

Figured I’d share them as I do everything else!

10×10 is great for 2, 5, 10, 11 and 12(ish)


7 x 12 is good for 7s and 6s


9 x 11 is good for 3 and 9


8 x 12 is good for 4, 8 and 7
