Multiplication games that will teach your child to:

Multiply by 6

6's

Okay -- the bad news: "tricks" or neat multiplication games to figure out the 6's are scarce.

But, look at what we already know:

1. So far we know 0's, 1's, 2's,3's,4's,5's, that means they know: 6x0, 6x1, 6x2, 6x3, 64, 6x5 !

2. Later you will learn strategies for : 9's, 10's, 11's, and 12's.

3. That leaves us with three problems: 6x6, 6x7, and 6x8. So here are some fun rhymes to help:

6's

6 x 6 Poem

Six times six. Magic tricks. Abracadabra. Thirty-six

6 x 7 Poem

Six and Seven are sad and blue. They make number forty-two.

6 x 8 Poem

Six asked eight for a date, six times eight is forty-eight.

It is still beneficial to learn to count by sixes.

Here is a song to help:

To the tune of " If Your Happy and You Know it"

6's

6,12,18,and 24 CLAP CLAP ( if your happy and you know it clap your hands)
6,12,18,and 24 CLAP CLAP ( if your happy and you know it clap your hands)
30, 36( if your happy and you know it)
42 and 48 ( then your face will surely show it)
6,8,12,and 24 CLAP CLAP( if your happy and you know it clap your hands.
