What I did when I faced this was....I wouldn't stop working on his regular math curriculum but I would do math flash cards with him each day, or evening. Make it fun...put the flash cards that he answers correctly in a stack and the ones he misses seperately. Once he gets so many correct he gets a small pience of candy at the end of the day, or another small reward that he would enjoy. (It could be somthing as simple as a star on a chart you keep. Then once he has so many starts he gets to rent a movie on the weekend, or play a specil game with you.)

Then after he has memorized these facts after a few weeks I would give him a daily fact sheet to do with the basics. Once day addition, one day subtraction, the next multiplication, then divisiion. Saxon math incorporates this in their daily math and it helps a great deal. He should time himself to see how many he can get done in 5 minutes. After a few weeks you will see that he begins to get them all correct in the five minutes:)

Hope it helps!

Have a Blessed Day!
