Going Backwards to Move Forwards

We brought out the math books lately. 
I've learned (FINALLY!) that we should go back to our last place of success.
For us, our last success was double digit multiplication. 
When I brought it out, we started looking at the problems. Everything was rusty and slow moving for my eldest. So I went back to the beginning of multiplication tables.
And it was there that my daughter realized, "Maybe I need more practice with the 1 to 12 multiplication tables."
So we made a goal to practice and play games for the next two weeks and re-master the multiplication tables.
And that's what we're doing. 
I'll let you know what happens in two weeks.
