rather than 2 times 2 or whatever, 2 "sets of" 2 will be more intuitive at that age.
Avoid focusing on "math facts" as seems to be so popular today. Memorizing may be faster in the short run, but an indepth understanding of number theory is more important in the long run.
Montessori materials are really well designed for giving children the mental tools they need to develop a good sense of number theory.
