##### Does your child struggle with multiplying large numbers, because he or she does not know all their multiplication facts?

The problem below is called a “Watch Me” challenge.  This Watch Me challenge introduces the strategies of skip counting and Area Multiplication.  More importantly, the video demonstrates how to use these two strategies while solving a multiplication problems.  I encourage you to watch this first video with your children and to discuss the strategies.  Then have your child write this first problem in their math notebook.

### Does Your Child Need a Great Book to Read?

 My son read every single one of these Magic Tree House books when he was young.  They really helped to develop his reading fluency as well as his comprehension. I wrote this book when I was teaching in the primary grades.  It’s about a fourth grade boy who is being bullied.  He is taken to another world where he learns to face his fears. In the process, he saves the entire planet from an all-out war. I wrote this book as a testament to myself.  I have dyslexia, and for years I felt limited by my disability.  I decided to write a novel to prove that no disability could hold me back.  Return to the Elves is a fantasy book for children in fifth and sixth grades. This is my all-time favorite book for 6th grade. It is about a young lady in the time of the Pharos.  She is quite the heroine. This book dovetails perfectly with the sixth grade standard of studying Ancient Egypt.

## Could your child benefit from a little One-On-One tutoring?

The problem below is called a “Work with Me” challenge.  This challenge encourages your child to work step-by-step along side me to solve this challenge.  All of the following challenges are called “On Your Own” challenges.  However, many of my students who struggle with multiplication will do five or six of the “On Your Own” challenges as a “Work with Me” challenge.  They play the video, pause it, and copy the strategies until they feel comfortable and confident.  Doing the problems as a “Work with Me” challenge is like having a personal tutor.
