Read at Home: First Skills: Biff's First Times Tables by Roderick Hunt

Read at Home First Skills are fun early learning books, which use your favourite Oxford Reading Tree characters to introduce important first skills to your child. Your favourite Oxford Reading Tree characters make learning fun and memorable. Read at Home First Skills books are the perfect accompaniment to all your Oxford Reading Tree Read at Home storybooks. In this fun story, it is Biff and Chip's birthday. They have a number of friends coming, invitations to send, food to buy and so much more! With so many children and so much to do, Dad shows Biff that using times tables can help prepare for the big day. Times tables are very hard for children to learn. To ensure that the levelling is right, the main focus of the story is the two, five and ten times tables, which are the first times tables children are taught at school. Biff introduces all the times tables, from 2-10, at the end of the book for children to learn and refer to when they are ready. As with all Read at Home books, the story ends with fun activities for parent and child to enjoy together. Biff's First Times Tables helps your child to: *Learn or revise their 1-10 times tables in a fun and memorable way *Boost their learning with fun and supportive illustrations *Consolidate their learning with topical number facts and questions *Uses the Oxford Reading Tree characters to introduce telling the time *Uses story to help the reader learn the concept of multiplication and introduce them to times tables *Unlike the competition, the story and skill and been carefully introduced and levelled to prepare the reader for school.
