This site will create a worksheet to your specification...one of my favorites.  It's great for making worksheets to go over the problems your child needs more work.  The ultimate in individual education.

The program is called "Multiplication Flashcards" and is a great tool for the homeschool parent to use to help teach the child that is learning his/her multiplication tables. The interface is simple and geared for the very young child. The program can be controlled by using either a mouse or entirely by the keyboard; making it fully accessible to children with physical handicaps. Last year I sent the program out as an email attachment to over 250 home school families that requested it after I posted it on a homeschool discussion board.
