Day 3 I recap the process they have been through over the past couple of days. I set some boundaries and expectations for the conversation we are about to have. Respect Gets Respect is our mantra. What happens next is amazing. Giggly is long gone, replaced with a real desire to listen, learn and understand. A valuable conversation ensues. Every once in a while the kids need to be redirected and reminded about the boundaries. Good facilitation is the key... and I am great at that. And practicing new skills makes perfect... which is exactly what the kids are doing. Lots and lots of great questions. To be honest, the kids ask the kinds of questions that many adults strive to sort out in their own efforts to understand and appreciate gender differences. A significant amount of time was spent on the theme, "Why cant they be more like us?" The boys wanted the girls to be more like them. The girls wanted the boys to be more like them.
6th grade science projects are not expected to be original; it is perfectly okay to do an experiment that has been done before. Some schools start doing science fairs in sixth grade, but they are not usually too competitive as their purpose is really to get the students interested. The judges simply want to see that you have put the effort into your project and made up a nice presentation for it. Still, there are endless ideas of topics you can pick. One fun idea for 6th grade science projects is to see how well people can identify different smells when blind folded. This project is fairly simple. All you need is a blindfold and a few items with different smells. A few ideas might be vanilla, cinnamon, coffee beans, vinegar, and so on. There are many, many different things you can use. To do this project, you will need a volunteer or two. It would be a good idea to make up a chart in advance so you can record your results. Blindfold your volunteer and put each scent under their nose one at a time, and record whether or not they were able to identify what the scent was. Originality is not the key factor here at this age. The judges just want to see that you are capable of performing an experiment on your own, writing up a report on it and presenting your finding in an organized, easy to understand way. There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing an experiment that has already been done, as long as you try to make it your own.
If you know of any recently retired teachers, so long as theyre up to date with the latest teaching methods, then they make great tutors; they may also be grateful of the additional money that this gives them. Do you know are there any parents are looking for a math tutor? Can they recommend the tutor that they have? If they can, what sort of improvement have they seen in the grades of their children? Have you taken into consideration how close your new tutor lives to you? Can you imagine it; you have already got a math tutor, but the traffic is so congested and they have to arrive late; by the time they arrive at your place, its time to have your dinner or the kids are just exhausted and ready to go to bed; doesnt make too much sense to employ someone that far away now, does it? if the person just lives nearby, it is more easier for them to make alterations of when they come and coach your kids; it doesnt disrupt theyre routing too much, and it doesnt disrupt yours, either. In what ways you know youve selected the correct person?
New School Yet to be Named San Antonio Independent School District Trustees and District leaders join students from Foster and Schenck elementary schools in breaking ground Sept. 21 for SAISDs newest campus, which is located in the 9200 block of South Presa Street. The new academy, which is the first school established by the District in 40 years, will serve the educational needs of a growing student population in the Southeast sector of SAISD. The planned two-story academy--yet to be named--will accommodate 750 students in pre-kindergarten through 8th grade at the 18-acre site. The building will have an exterior design reminiscent of the nearby historic missions. Early grades at this San Antonio school will have elementary-level playgrounds and learning spaces equipped for instruction, physical education and music. Upper grade classrooms will include an art room, science labs, and two music rooms with acoustical areas for band, choir, orchestra or mariachi.
The Douglas Academy Current and former students, community members and staff from the San Antonio Schools staff gathered in the historic auditorium of Douglass Academy on Sept. 26 for a homecoming celebration and dedication ceremony to mark the completion of a major construction and renovation project at the school. "Douglass Academy has a rich history and tradition. Our children here have inherited that history and they have the potential to become all that they want to be," said District Superintendent Dr. Robert J. Durón on the stage where legend has it that Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday and B.B. King once performed.
When your start-up business is a turnkey business package, you reap the benefit of having a director. The turnkey business package founders and managers have the baton. They lead and guide you through the process - they help you learn how to read the music. They have taken the sweat and tears, trial and error and missed beats out of the composition. You are quickly ready to perform - and perform well, as though theyve been in business for a while. You are able to move from 6th to 7th to 8th grades so to speak. You are ready to jump right in, give your audience (customers) what they want - an efficient, well-orchestrated service that is music to their ears.
