Lesson 5 is the last lesson using the trick strategy and the first lesson to include only THREE focus facts (rather than six). The “Half-Whole Trick” taught in this lesson can be applied anytime the number 6 is multiplied by an even number. It has amazed even the most experienced educators! Once students understand the Half-Whole Trick, the products of these Sixes facts are simple for students to recall. All remaining Sixes facts will be addressed in the Chant Group (Lessons 6-8).

Post the focus facts (with products showing) in the classroom and refer to them throughout the day, emphasizing the Half-Whole trick. After completion of Lesson 5, monitor progress using the Mid-Program Assessment Tool. Revisit any needed lessons before moving onto Lesson 6.[highlight]Go to Lesson 5 Videos[/highlight]
