I prepare the work the kids are getting and answer more e-mails.2 The more sophisticated mental operations in mathematics of analysis, synthesis, and evaluation are impossible without rapid and accurate recall of specific knowledge.
Learning the arithmetic facts in the first four grades can be pretty hard work for some students. Learning these facts through only rote memorization will make it more difficult than it needs to be for students.
