You might be wondering what our pattern was for the 3’s times tables. Well, instead of looking for a pattern (there isn’t a really obvious one) we just learned *Three is a Magic Number* from Schoolhouse Rock. I wasn’t *really* convinced that it would work for *A*, but it did! So, here the video of the song. Good luck with threes!

*PS – you’ll notice that the song leaves out 3 * 11 and 3 * 12 – well, 3 * 11 is easy, right? We talked about that **yesterday** – it’s just “3 in the tens place, and 3 in the ones place.” 12 is easy, too - “3, and then 3 doubled” 3 * 12 = 36. We’ll talk more about the 12’s when we get to them, but the first few 12 times tables are pretty straightforward.*

*If you have questions, you can ask them in the comments, email me, ask on Facebook, or on Twitter. I am on Facebook and Twitter live from 3:00-3:30 pm Mon-Thurs MDT.*
