The Trigger Memory Co REVIEW

About Times Tales

Times Tales is a video-based program aimed at making it fun and easy to memorize the upper multiplication facts. It’s available on DVD or digital download and it’s a clever, mnemonic-based program that easily engages students.

Times Tales uses simple stories to give students, what they call, a “memory peg.” These stories lead to quick recall of multiplication facts that are often difficult to master.

We reviewed the digital version, which includes two video files (Part 1 & Part 2) and three printable PDF files. The program offers the following:

  • 2 Video Lessons (Covering these multiplication facts: 3×6, 3×7, 3×8, 3×9, 4×6, 4×7, 4×8, 4×9, 6×6, 6×7, 6×8, 6×9, 7×7, 7×8, 7×9, 8×8, 8×9, 9×9)
  • Printable Tests
  • Printable Crossword Puzzles
  • Printable Flaschcards for Multiplication and Division
  • Printable Cube Game

The Mama zone Times Tales Program Review

According to the website, the total learning time is just one hour and even kids as young as 5 can recall the upper times tables after watching the videos.

Our Times Tales Review

I definitely reccomend this. My son is a very bright student but it’s taken quite some time for him to nail down the multiplication facts. I tried EVERYTHING I knew to do and then some. I sure wish I’d found Times Tales a lot sooner.

The mnemonic devices the program uses go a long way toward helping children memorize and recall multiplication facts. They’re cute stories that are simple to understand, making recalling them quite easy.

I also like that the program makes the connection between multiplication and division. This was a boost my son needed and we are not struggling with multiplication like we were before.


And we’ve given it 5 mamas.

The MamaZone Review: 5 Mamas[1] It makes mama’s life easier.  [2] It’s kid approved! [3] It delivers what was promised. [4] $19.95 is definitely a reasonable price.  [5] The approach is quite unique.

    I don’t home school my teen and she’s in her home stretch of high school but I sure wish I’d known about this for math. Despite her not liking math, she is very good at it but multiplication was a challenge for her in the beginning!

      It definitely eliminated some stress for us! Congrats on being almost done raising her ;-).

    We homeschool and are working on multiplication right now. I know this is an old post but the fact that you said you wish you’d found this sooner makes me feel likes it’s something that’s definitely worth trying out. Thank you Anitra!
