Times Tables Actions

Using actions is a great way of learning your times tables. The best part is that the actions that we use in school, can be used for any times tables. 
You can count in any times table using these actions and it is a good way of remembering them.
 
They can be used to quickly work out e.g. 5x2. Knowing the actions, you can work out that the answer would be 10 by counting in your 2s. 
 
You could also work out that 10 divided by 2 would be five. Because you know that 10 is the 5th action in the 2 x tables.
