Mastering the multiplication facts is a process that can take a surprising amount of time. If your third grader (or beyond) is struggling with basic facts, it can be discouraging.
I’ve been there, friends. And it’s HARD.
Rest assured that your child WILL eventually master the multiplication facts . . . even if it’s not when an arbitrary guideline says they should.

Printable Color by Code Worksheets
Color by number activities are a fun way for kids of all ages to practice basic multiplication skills. A coloring sheet is definitely more fun than repetitive math worksheets (even for older kids).
I made these color by number printables with homeschoolers in mind, but teachers love them, too.
If you teach in a classroom or homeschool co-op, these are a great no-prep activity for multiplication morning work, math stations, or early finisher activities.
In these spring-themed multiplication coloring worksheets, kids will solve each single-digit multiplication problem and then use the color codes to color the picture.
This set includes 8 color by code printables, with one page each for multiplying by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. Use the worksheets for reinforcement/review or to target specific facts that students may be struggling with.
Each worksheet can be printed in either color or black and white, and a full-size answer key is included for each page. (Answer keys shown below.)
