It is vital that children know the basic principles of maths – how to multiply and divide, how to add and subtract, how to turn fractions to decimals – and Flexitable grids and multiplication tables (times tables) can help every pupil to learn and remember them. Teaching times tables to kids at a young age will help develop basic key skills, and our range of numeracy resources are especially designed for this purpose.

What is a Flexitable?
Flexitables are no ordinary numeracy charts or multiplication tables for kids: they are tactile and made of soft flexible plastic. This low tech approach to maths teaching resources is an effective way of boosting key numeracy skills.
The Flexitable programme consists of a multiplication tables (times tables), an addition, a number and a fraction/decimal grid all printed on soft flexible plastic that has vertical and horizontal channels allowing children to continuously fold them again and again. Flexitables have a far greater life than paper or cardboard products, and are proven to be a very effective way of teaching numeracy and times tables to kids.
Flexitables are tactile and children love manipulating them when trying to discover the answers. Our multiplication tables (times tables) and grids are particularly useful for teaching pupils with special needs (e.g. Dyslexia) as they can be taught on a “one-to-one basis” at their own speed.
NEW Product Packs
We are always looking to expand our range of numeracy teaching resources going beyond our fraction to decimal and times tables for kids. Flexitable have now created a series of lesson activities which support assessment for learning enrichment and are linked to the renewed primary framework for mathematics. Products are supplied in the following packs:
- 10 pcs or 30 pcs plus the relevant 18 lesson CD
- Starter Pack – 1 of each grid plus 72 lesson CD
- Single grid plus the relevant 18 lesson CD OR
- Home Tuition Kit – 1 of each grid plus 72 lesson CD
There is a training video on each CD (3 on the 72 lesson CD) except for the 100 Square which is linked to the many books already available about how to use this grid.
A sister companion to our maths teaching and numeracy resources range is the Flexisound system of word charts. Developed from the same ideas as our numeracy charts Flexisound sets out spelling and pronunciation variations in clear, easy to follow charts on a soft plastic folding table. The folding action is an ideal aid to help learn the letter/s sound correspondences thoroughly. The sounds read from left to right. The spelling variations for each sound are listed downwards.
We are proud of our proven products, maths doesn’t have to be difficult. Our methods are fun and encourage thought, in practical and innovatively designed products; decimals to fractions to percentages and times tables for kids. Whether multiplication tables (times tables) or synthetic phonics, Flexitable and Flexisound are an invaluable addition to the classroom and the home.
