I need help remembering the 9's multiplication table. Can you help me learn them?
Why, yes! Yes, I can! I know a nifty nine trick. look at the back of both your hands with your fingers spread out. What is 9 x 1? To find the nifty nine answer, place your left pinky finger down and count your remaining fingers. There are 0 to the left of your pinky and 9 to the right, so your answer is... 9! The same rule can work for any number times 9 that is 10 or less! Let's try with 2! Put your left ring finger down. how many are to the left of it? 1! That's right! How many are to the right? 8. so 9 x 2 = 1 8.

The American troops were in need of shelter and a morale boost. General George Washington led a surprise, isolated attack on the Hessian garrison leading to the Hessians' surrender. Fun Fact: Where Washington and the troops crossed the Delaware River is now a National Historic Landmark
In the following sentence, please label the subject and the verb. Yodeler lost his meatball when somebody sneezed.
Subject - Yodeler - Yodeler answers the question, "Who lost their meatball?" that is how we know it is the subject of the sentence. Frequently, the subject comes before the verb in a sentence. Verb - lost - Lost answers the question, "Yodeler did what?" Yodeler lost their meatball! The verb shows action when it is an action verb. There are different kinds of verbs, but we will get to those later!
