Weekend Homework -
Math - watch the videos to help you understand Area Model Multiplication.
School Tube - Area Model Multiplication
Use the area method (on the blank sheets I gave you) to solve the same 4 problems that you did earlier in the week. (Remember the ones you had to do three ways?) They are on the last page of the packet.
Then finish that page using all 4 methods. You only have to do each problem once, but try to use a variety of the 4 different methods to make sure you can do them all.
Test - next Thursday on all methods of multiplication.
RALLY Reading - Unit 2 Passage 2
You only have to write the letter and the paragraph where you found the answer.
Remember - Wordly Wise test Wednesday.
Thursday Homework -

Reading - Read for 30 minutes. Students have new Reading Logs that need to be initialed.

for 30 minutes. Note: You do not have to log this. Tomorrow you will be
getting a new reading log as part of the Six Flags Read for Success
The SS and Rally homework can count toward the 30 minutes.
SS - Read Lesson 3 and do the accompanying sheet.
Rally - Unit 2: Passage 1.
have a new procedure for this. You do NOT have to write out the
questions. According to our deal, you'll work hard to look up the
answers and then you onlyh ave to write the letter of the answer and the
# of the paragraph where you found it.
Wordly Wise - Exercise C. Reminder - test is next Wednesday.
There is no Math homework tonight because we did REFLEX in school and also spent an hour on the area method.
Read pages 46 - 51 in Social Studies text. This can count toward your thirty minutes.
Social Studies - sheet
RALLY - page 18 essay. Use evidence from the story as much as you can to explain your answer.
Math - 4 questions three ways.
What that means is you have 4 questions from your packet - Last page # 4, 7, 13, 16.
You have to do each of them three different ways: traditional, grid, and lattice.
Don't try to use the area model. The graph paper you have won't give
you a large enough grid to use that model for these problems.
Remember REFLEX at least 3 times a week.
Read for thirty minutes.
Wordly Wise - Lesson 7 A and B (if you haven't done themyet)
RALLY Reading - pages 13 - 17. NOT page 18.
