Funny how that works, isn’t it?

My son swears he can’t memorize his times tables because it’s too much. Yet, as he’s laying in bed, he’s quoting, to himself, the entire “The Master of Disguise” movie. I mean, word for word.
Guess what he’ll be doing when he gets home from school tomorrow? And he’s not coming out til they’re memorized.

    Oh… I have a bad story about my times tables! It was the first time I really lied about anything important to an authority figure. — In the third grade, we had to go to the principal’s office to recite them to her once we learned them; it went 1-5, 6-10, & 11-12. I did the first two, but never did the 11 & 12 and blatantly lied to everyone about it, and then got credit for them! My karma got me though — I still have problems with the 12s. ha!

    12s wow. We never went that high is school. We stoped at the 10s, but I learned 11s on my own because they are easy and fun. I loved math.

    I had to go up to 12’s too. I learned using the good old flash card method. Every morning at breakfast my mom would be showing me those cards. Ugh… I learned them though.
