My two youngest brothers are in 4th and 7th grade. Both of them are working on or with some form of multiplication. I was very excited to have the opportunity to review the Steps4Kids Multiplication DVD with both Brock and Wesley.
This teaching tool was selected as "DVD of the Year" by CreativeChild Magazine. This is no surprise as this 80 minute video offers many children a leg up with learning multiplication by incorporating both video and audio instructions, activities and tips.
I would say Brock, the 4th grader has benefited the most from the video. Since he is just learning multiplication this video has helped him solidify and review the information he is learning at school. Another great benefit for Brock is the auditory assistance that this video offers. Brock, as some of you may know, suffers from an eye-tracking learning disorder that makes reading and looking at text on paper very difficult.
Wesley, who may be a bit above the DVD has learned some fun tricks to make remembering and using multiplication fast and easy.
As an educator and big sister I think this $24.99 video will help children learn their multiplication tables. I must say watching the video also assisted me with my multiplication during my Roulette dealing class as well! This is a great video that teaches children the math and the correct mathematical vocabulary as well. Check out this and the other Steps4Kids videos today.
What I loved about this video:
~ Bright and engaging pictures: with numbers and other visuals to help children visualize the math.
~ Problems and solutions set up both vertically and horizontally. Perfect for new learners.
~ Auditory instructions as well as visual explanations.
