Most school districts are rather lenient when it comes to new teacher mistakes. However, because of a lack of experience, there are several things that can and do get new teachers fired. This article is about one specific action by one specific teacher; although Im beginning to wonder if he is one of those Urban Legends. First, some background. A couple weeks ago I was doing some research for an article about UCSMP (University of Chicago School Mathematics Project) and trends in mathematics. I taught high school math in a school district that started using UCSMP (we referred to it as the Chicago Series) in 1988. My feelings about the Chicago Series will be in another article, but overall, I considered it to be an excellent math series with tremendous potential for improving student understanding of mathematics but with a couple major flaws that always seemed to lead to its demise. For my research, I just wanted to know if it still existed. I came across an article that I thought was written this year by a 23-year-old, male, 3rd grade math, 1st year teacher. My immediate reaction to his article was that he should be fired for several reasons.
Just because your child will be playing fun online games doesnt mean the same value wont be there. Create a comfortable study zone. Turn off outside distractions such as cell phones, radios or TVs. Make sure your child is not tired or hungry so that he or she can focus all attention on learning. Also try to keep the lessons consistent with what is being learned in school. A quick chat with the teacher or signing up for an online newsletter from the classroom are ways to keep tabs on the lesson plans. Since 3rd grade math relies on the concepts that were learned during kindergarten, first and second grades, dont be afraid to start your child at a lower level. With adaptive learning, the programs wont move on to the next level until your child has a firm grasp on the current material. The online games will be a wonderful way for your child to catch up on basic arithmetic concepts and be comfortable using them across applications.
One of the implications for these findings is the importance of physical fitness programs for school aged children, and for increased support of school-sponsored fitness programs. Children spend a significant portion of their waking hours at school, and most schools have some type of physical education class during the week. The unfortunate by-product of poor student achievement in some schools is the elimination of physical education classes in an effort to increase instructional time. As we see here, this is probably the exact opposite prescription the children need. Some schools have not ignored the research done by Hillman and others exploring the connection between intelligence and physical fitness. For example, the Newsweek article points out that schools have already taking steps such as putting PE class before reading class. The result is better scores all around.
Main Characters - Who will support you in your business? Do you have an assistant? Coach? Belong to a Mastermind? When I first started my business, it was just me doing everything. Along the way, I added support as I quickly realized that I could not accomplish my dreams and goals without more help. Today, I have a virtual assistant, a web designer and a project assistant. Support is a key factor in building and sustaining a successful business. 4. Plot - Whats the vision for your business? What does your Big Idea, Dream, or Goal look like? This was the most challenging part for my son Jack. Taking what he read and being able to articulate it in a format that would make sense to anyone who picked up the report but may have never read the book. This, too, is true for your business. You need to be able to articulate your business idea and what it does with real vision and clarity, so that when you meet with your ideal client, they understand that what you have to offer is for them.
Problem - What problem does your ideal client have that you can solve when they work with you or use your product? This is key to writing effective marketing materials. 6. Solution - Whats the solution that you provide? For example, are you a small business attorney who helps entrepreneurs keep their businesses legally healthy? Do you provide services to help people grow their businesses? People will always invest in solutions that they believe will clearly solve their problems. Jacks book report was on Doctor Doolittle. He enjoyed the book and all of its characters. Taking everything he discovered in the book and putting it on paper was not always easy at times, but it clearly helped him to better understand what he read. He had to get up a few times, walk away, and take a break but in the end, he was really proud of his work.
Online Games Make it Fun to Learn Your child would undoubtedly be unhappy to learn that he has to sit down with a math tutor several times per week. If you tell him that hes allowed to play online games for 30 minutes each night, though, hes sure to be singing a different tune. Third graders love online games, and the best ones include exciting elements that keep kids involved and excited. In many cases, they dont even realize that they are learning. These types of 3rd grade math games provide benefits for students, parents and teachers. As a parent, its important to do whatever you can to help your child succeed. By developing a sound understanding of basic mathematical principles in the third grade, your child will have a much easier time with the subject throughout the remainder of his schooling. Instead of dreading or disliking math, your child may even learn to enjoy it. The benefits of finding high-quality online math games for your child are considerable, and there are many viable options out there. Set aside some time to research the available options. When youve found something that looks suitable, have your child give it a try. Youre sure to be impressed with the results, and your child is sure to have a lot of fun.
