Fun Times Tables Flashcards

Children often find it tricky to learn their times tables. Keeping it simple and fun could be the answer. Our new range of Flashcards from The Green Board Company is ideal to play anywhere. At home for a family games night, in the garden on a nice Spring day or in a restaurant when you want to keep the children entertained. For older children Maths Wrap is also good on car journeys and gets children to learn their Times Tables by winding string round a hand held gadget, great for those reluctant ones that like doing and seeing rather than recitinging parrott fashion.
