This concept can be taught at home, using any small objects (buttons, coins, cereal, etc.) Any object that can be easily used to make straight rows and columns, can be used. Students know that in multiplication, the first factor is the number of groups (rows) and the second factor is the number in each group. So, if the equation was 6 x 4, students should have 6 rows (each row is a group), with 4 objects in that row (group). If they line up their array straight, then they should easily be able to find the product. In this case, the product would be 24.
If you do not have objects at home for your child to use, they can always use this same concept by drawing arrays on a sheet of paper. The process is still the same.
I snapped some cute pictures of some of my kiddos reading during D.E.A.R Time (Drop Everything And Read). I'm usually reading while they are, but I couldn't resist snapping these! I had to do it fast or they would have gotten on to me for not reading during this time! LOL
