Basic Facts

I am trying to inspire DD to feel motivated to learn all her basic facts without making her bored or turning her off. I know, I am a teacher and get stuck, at times, thinking like a teacher. So my readers out there, what can you recommend some great ways to inspire an 8 year old to rote learn these necessary facts.

What kinds of things - times tables? We sometimes do counting round the table at dinner ie 3's, 4's etc the kids love that. You could change it by asking questions making them appropriate for each person. My kids haven't had much rote learning except for times table and the occasional spelling lists.
