Subject: 3rd grader...how to teach her multiplication tables
I am currently tutoring a very bright, recently diagnosed 3rd grader (ADHD) in math. She does not seem to have the ability to memorize any basic math facts so mulitiplication is a disaster! We have been going thru flashcards for addition and subtraction 2x weekly and she still uses finger-counting for problems such as 11-5 and 6 + 7. Since the current curriculum requires the solidification of these math facts to "keep up", where is the best place to start?
