Learning the multiplication tables can also be sung to an already known tune. For example, the six tables are fun to sing to the tune of "Row, Row Your Boat." My students have fun putting the different tables to different tunes. It is like a challenge. Then we try to sing them at a more rapid tempo. 0 6 12 18 24 30 Row row row your boat gently down the stream Substitute the products for the words. It is actually fun.
