Check Out Your 6 Times Table Multiplication Worksheets!
This first worksheet will have your kid zooming through the 6 multiplication facts!
They go in order from 6 x 2 to 6 x 12 to show the progression of skip counting by 6.
To complete, have the student solve each problem and write their answer on the flame coming out of the rocket.
But what if my kid isn’t ready to answer some of the problems?
This particular worksheet is a great way to show kids that they can use their addition skills to solve multiplication problems they are struggling with!
Let’s say your kid struggles with 6 x 7. Ask the child what the answer to the previous number (6 x 6) is, and then have them add 6 on to that.
I still do that for some facts I am rusty on!
This next sheet has all the 6 facts out of order.
If your child is confident in their facts, they may be able to zoom right through the worksheet. But, if your student feels overwhelmed looking at this sheet, show them that the easiest way to start is to scan for facts that they know.
So point them to 6 x 1 then work their way up from there to 6 x 2, 6 x 3, and so on.
Regularly remind your student that the multiplication symbol means “groups of.” So 6 x 9 means “6 groups of 9” or “9 groups of 6.”
These problems can be solved by using manipulatives to make the actual groups (the best way for kids who need concrete learning) or by showing the kids to add on from the facts that they already know solidly.
Here your student will be working on solving 6 times facts in vertical format.
To complete, show the child that they must write their answers on the horizontal line below each problem.
Remind the student that the numbers can be inverted and they will still get the same answer.
At this point you may be noticing that some problems are more difficult for your child than others.
Maybe when he see 6 x 12, your child immediately starts to freeze up. Take some time to take note of these facts.
Further down the page, you will find some helpful learning tips to help your child conquer them!
But in the meantime, remain positive and encourage your child.
Don’t say things like, “Oh, I know you always struggle with that fact,” or “That one is so hard for you.”
Focus on saying things like, “Don’t let that fact get the best of you, (child’s name). Give it your very best!” And then reinforce the strategies you’ve taught them to remember (or figure out) multiplication facts.
This worksheet is a great way to dig deeper into the 6 times table facts!
To complete, the student fills in the missing factor or the missing product.
Depending on where your kid is, this might be super fun…or really stressful.
Encourage your child to do their very best with the facts that she knows, then pull out a times table chart to finish up with the rest!
Show the child how to use the chart, and then have them scan down the 6 column or row to find the correct answer.
The chart is also a great way to have an answer sheet available for your child to check for incorrect responses.

This last sheet should hopefully not take a lot of time to complete.
Young students just need to color the balls that have products that appear in the 6 multiplication times table.
Encourage the child to do a little mental math and say the 6 facts out loud from 6 x 1 and up.
For best results, have them check their work with a times table multiplication chart.

More Tips for Learning The 6 Times Table!
I definitely wouldn’t say that this is one of the easiest multiplication tables.
In fact, it may be the first one that really gives your child some trouble.
If so, I wanted to include a few tips to help you work your way successfully through!
1. Six is a Sweetheart: Think of the number 6 as your buddy. It loves hanging out with an even number. When you multiply any number by 6, you get an even number, like 6 x 4 = 24. Easy peasy!
2. Game On: Turn learning into a game. Grab a set of flash cards or play multiplication bingo with friends and family. A little friendly competition can make math way more exciting. Check out my favorite math games.
3. Munch on Your Sixes: Grab some small snacks (or tear them into small pieces) and group them into equal groups of 6. Count them while you munch, and before you know it, you’ll remember 6 x 2, 6 x 3, and all the rest.
4. Teach a Stuffed Animal: Grab your favorite stuffed animal and teach it the 6 times table. Explaining it to someone (or something!) else is a great way to reinforce what you’ve learned.
5. Have a Fact of the Day: Identify a fact of the day and periodically ask your child the fact. By the end of the day, they will be able to answer with confidence!
6. Celebrate Each Victory: Every time you conquer a new multiplication fact, celebrate! Maybe with a little dance or a high-five. These may feel like small or silly things, but they will mean a lot to you kid!
7. Try a Fun Rhyme:
“Six times one is easy as pie, It’s just six, no need to ask why!”
“With a skip and a hop, we’re on our way, Six times two is twelve, hooray!”
“Three little ducks fight for a bean. Six times three is eighteen!”
“At four and six, we stop for sticks, Six times four is twenty-four, it clicks!”
“High-five the bees in the buzzing hive, Six times five is thirty, let’s thrive!”
“Six little cupcakes, all in a mix, Six times six is thirty-six, what a fix!”
“Seven stars shine oh so bright, Six times seven is forty-two, out of sight!”
“Eight and six, in a playful mix, Six times eight is forty-eight, so nifty!”
“For nine and six, we’ve got a trick, Six times nine is fifty-four, quick!”
“A perfect ten, now you’re in the know, Six times ten is sixty, off you go!”
To take it a step even further, have your child draw each of these rhymes to help them review and remember them!
8. Consider Multiplication Supplements: If all else fails, look into picking up some materials to help you dig even deeper into multiplication. My own kids have all done well with Times Tales and Multiplication Facts that Stick. I highly recommend it to any kid (and parent) that is struggling through math facts.

To sum it up, these 6 times table printables are pretty nifty!
They’re not just pieces of paper; they’re secret weapons in your battle for mastery over multiplication. Okay, so maybe that was a touch dramatic – but you get my point 🙂
Whether you’re a homeschool student trying to level up your math game or a teacher helping your class become multiplication champions, these printables have your back.
But if you start going through these activities and your student begins to struggle, remember that simple multiplication is a foundation that will be needed in math for years to come.
Don’t rush through it because it will only cause your child to struggle more in higher levels of math.
Take your time and really, really learn these facts so that your student can soar into long multiplication, division times tables, and other higher math concepts.
