If she is a hands on learner, this will help. You will need an egg carton and some clay or play doh. Make little balls out of the clay. Then use the egg carton to help explain multiplication and/or division. Say you have 6x3, you would put 6 clay balls in 3 of the egg spots in the carton to represent 6x3, then have her count how many clay balls that you have all together. It helps them visualize that 6x3 is 3 sets of 6 items or 6+6+6.

How is she struggling? Does she understand the concept but just doesn't have the facts memorised? or does she need to go backand "understand" it?
We did something similar to what Steel mentioned but with MnMs so her reward forthe day was getting to eat them at the end of the lesson.
For facts practice:
Mathblaster.com  it's free
MathUsee.com has free drill activities
We als oplay "math war" with a deck of cards. 110 are their face value. Queens = 0, Jacks = 11, Kings = 12 (I used a fine tip sharpie to write the number for J, Q, K on our first deck, now they can do it with any) You lay the cards down at the same time just like regular war but the first person to multiply the two numbers, and get it right, wins the cards. So if I toss a 3 and you toss a Q that is 3x0 and first to call it gets them.

My 9 yr old is a 3rd grader and really struggled with math. We have her do a multiplication table everyday after school. it has seemed to help her. She is "Getting" it now. It clicked. Like with ready. She was a bit of a late bloomer in reading and finally one day it clicked with her just like that. Overnite. Are they just learning their multiplications in 4th grade? It is 3rd grade here in Ok.

It's 3rd grade here too. She learned them enough to get past her tests and then forgot them. I need her to memorize them.

Have you thought about getting her a tutor? I think that will help her the most.
Or, if you can't afford that.....MANIPULATIVES are the best thing since sliced bread. What type of multiplcation is she doing? If its simple like 2x3, then manipulatives will work wonders for her :).
And of course, there's Khan Academy.
