Isn’t it exciting when you see your child excel? I think so, too! That’s exactly why Memory Joggers came to be. As an elementary teacher, I saw there were no memorizing methods available to teach instant recall of addition/subtraction or multiplication/division facts.
After several summers working on ideas, I came up with the Memory Joggers system using pictures, stories and rhymes. After trying it out in my classroom, and being amazed at how quickly my students memorized the facts, I knew this was something I had to share with others.
Naturally, this led to writing other books, and to speaking engagements and the birth of a full time business. My site contains not only math products but writing journals and books. Since they were a successful part of my curriculum, I think you could benefit too. I’m constantly adding new books and products. Check back often and read my latest blog. Lots of free ideas here! Make sure you sign up for my quarterly newsletter link for more helpful memory and teaching suggestions.
Take a look through my web site for a more detailed description of all the products. Notice that many of the worksheets and workbooks are reproducible for classroom use. There are some great resources here and book reviews too.
Read the testimonials and be ready to discover an easy and fun filled method of teaching memorization of all kinds of math facts! Remember, we have a no risk, money back guarantee if you are not 100% satisfied, plus free phone consultations. If you would like a school or district in-service, contact me direct at (949) 371-6760.

Donnalyn Yates was by far the best speaker at this conference. There were so many good ideas that I can use in my classroom now!
