Area Rhyme

I use a rhyme when teaching my 5th grade students how to find the area of a rectangle. They absolutely love it! This is how it goes: Area, area, how do you find it? Take the length & width and you multiply 'em. This is a great way to help them memorize the formula, especially since they tend to confuse perimeter and area.
