Multiplication for hands on learners.

I recently checked out some great math books from our local library.  One of them is Marvelous Multiplication.  It has hands on activities to learn your multiplication facts.  Such as this one for 6’s.  She is making 12 different designs using 6 toothpicks each.  Then she was asked questions such as how many toothpicks are in 3 designs, etc. 
There are also games and activities for after you have learned all the facts to play, in order to get more practice. 
I highly recommend checking this book out if you child is learning multiplication tables.   We have loved it so much that we are purchasing it from Amazon.
