I mean starting from scratch I know my 6 yr. old is still to young but is curious when I am working with my 8 yr. old.
I am tired of my son getting frustrated with me and me with him. How can we do this without him feeling overwhelmed even if it has only been two problems :(
Any suggestions??? Thanks Ladies...

tell him that "times" or "multiplied by" means "groups of".
I use the example of plates with cookies on them. three plates with two cookies on each makes six cookies altogether.
rote memorization of facts is fine, but IMO it's much more important that they understand the concept.
oh, and here is an inexpensive and fun toy to help them memorize their multiplication facts.
