# Youssef Strategies and Self-Checks

I hope you worked read a lot over break and started to practice multiplication, division and fractions recently. Practice almost everyday will make these topics easier.

• You can write it in Google docs,
• your Mom can email (edMe@myedme.com),
• you can call me after 4:30 at 571.641.7611,
• or you can write a comment below.

You can always reach out to me with questions and I will try to get back to you that day. If we share regularly (which means often), then I can help you master all these topics this year. Just let me know what we are working on.

## Materials from Other Weeks

If you want to send me anything, you can upload it here or type it in box at the very bottom.

Cool beginnings! Click on the link below to explore how Scientists look at Antarctica. (Do you see a peninsula on this globe?)

Also, here is this video is about life in Roman forts. It’s kinda long, but watch it any time.

Second, we have been using this game to see how computers are used to develop intelligence. Give it a try! If you have any questions, you can ask any time.

## Math

Multiplication practice for factors:

Fraction exploration:

Math practice for decimal multiplication.

Sunday: History of Electricity: Ben Franklin Founding Father & Scientist

Monday: The Results of Ben Franklin’s Experiment

Tuesday: Thomas Edison: Famous Inventor

Wednesday: Tesla and Edison: Electrifying Inventors

Friday: Let’s write a bit to set up a fun Saturday!

• Write a paragraph like we did Saturday: What strategies did you use this week in your classes that worked well? Describe the strategies, how it worked, and how you know it worked well.

## Writing Checklist

• Did I write my “i” and “t” correctly?
• Do I have some words in this paper that describe what things look like?
• Do I use “and” twice in a sentence that should be broken into 2 sentences?

## Thanksgiving Holiday Fun

1. This page shows how to make the best paper airplane. Follow these directions step by step and you will have success!
2. This game is like the Multiplication Game, but for proper and improper fractions!
3. Here is a link to new Science readings about energy. Try to write the sentences and paragraph the page describes.

## Here are previous highlights from our work together!

I am so glad you took the writing assignment seriously. I typed up your first paragraph here:

then moon has a rocky surface it orbits the earth. then moon is a sign of night is coming soon. there is moon phases there is a crescent moon, a waning, 2 waxing, 2 gibbons, 2 quarter, 2 full, and a new moon.

Here is another version of your paragraph that adds more detail about what the moon looks like and where it is.

The moon has a white rocky surface. It orbits the Earth, and is much smaller than earth. In fact, the moon is about one quarter the size of the Earth. Like most things in the universe, half of the moon is exposed to sunlight. Because the moon is white with almost no atmosphere, it reflects the sunlight and we call this light “moonlight”-even though the light is from the Sun! When we look up at the moon on earth, we see 2 waxing, 2 gibbons, 2 quarter moons. We also see a full, bright moon and a new, dark moon every lunar cycle (lunar cycle means the time it takes the moon to revolve around the Earth.

More details about what the moon is and what it looks like

## Moon Landing Simulator

This simulator is design to show you about the gravity and atmosphere on the moon.

You can send me information through Google docs, your Mom can email (edMe@myedme.com), or you can write a comment below. The first thing we need to share is a complete list of the topics on Wednesday’s test.
