Brilliant for practice together
Bought these to help with motivation for our seven year old. Really good idea. Wants to play all the time. We play them as a memory card game e.g. place five cards on the table with the answer side up, after ten seconds they get flipped over to the side with the answers missing and mixed up for an attempt at writing in the total. Much more effective at improving recall than simply chanting the table. And lots of fun for our child.
