### Produce Rhyming Words

This phonics lesson gives students practice in producing rhyming words with short and long vowel sounds. Teacher instructions are included throughout the lesson.

### Plan and Write Informative Text

W.3.2 Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.

W.3.2.AW.3.2.A Introduce a topic and group related information together; include illustrations when useful to aiding comprehension.

W.3.2.BW.3.2.B Develop the topic with facts, definitions, and details.

W.3.2.CW.3.2.C Use linking words and phrases (e.g., also, another, and, more, but) to connect ideas within categories of information.

W.3.2.DW.3.2.D Provide a concluding statement or section.

This writing lesson helps students practice writing informative text. In this lesson, students will read given research notes on a topic, then develop a topic sentence, supporting detail sentences, and a concluding sentence using a graphic organizer. (Also aligns with standard 3.W.7.)

### Write an Inequality

### Translate Geometric Figures

8.G.1 Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:

8.G.1.A8.G.1.A Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length.

8.G.1.B8.G.1.B Angles are taken to angles of the same measure.

8.G.1.C8.G.1.C Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.

This geometry lesson teaches students how to translate geometric figures. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students will translate geometric figures. Students will also verify the properties of translated figures. This lesson can be used with rulers and protractors or with geometric software.

### Solve Exponential Equations

(C) Write exponential functions in the form f(x) = abx (where b is a rational number) to describe problems arising from mathematical and real-world situations, including growth and decay

A2.5.D(D) Solve exponential equations of the form y = abx where a is a nonzero real number and b is greater than zero and not equal to one and single logarithmic equations having real solutions

PCAL.5.I(I) Generate and solve exponential equations in mathematical and real-world problems
