In the mood for a little local sightseeing, I put on a pair of dark sunglasses and my favorite baseball cap, and then I peeked out into the hallway before making a mad dash for the stairwell. Yes, I know, Ive watched too many spy movies. Still I can dream a little, cant I? On the morning of the taping, the hotel security staff came up to my room and escorted me to the service elevator for a ride down to the first floor, where a presidential-like limousine was waiting for me behind the hotel. Forty-five minutes later, the fifth grade teacher and her daughter waltzed through the hotel lobby out to the front, where a bellhop was standing at the door of another black limousine.

You will want to practice as many of these academic organizational skills as you can with your child as 5th grade comes to an end. Also it is very important to set up situations with your child over the summer to practice these skills, even though s/he is not actually in school. First, keeping track of your belongings should be a habit that is worked on daily. Second is the skill of getting places on time. Many parents miss the wonderful opportunity of using the summer as a learning and practice time for these critical organizational skills. You do not have the pressure of getting to school every day and activities and getting the homework done in the evenings. If your child even partially masters just these two skills, it will go a long way toward smoothing the path into 6th grade. Another important skill is getting papers and books from school to hoe and back to school. You will want to have a great working system for handling this challenge.

For example, in an experiment where the growth of Venus flytraps are studied, the process can be simplified by confining the variables to just a few number, the hypothesis to just one, and the data collection period to just a few days time. Thus, only the variable of types of feed is changed, only one hypothesis is made in that the one fed the crickets will grow the fastest because of the protein content, and the period is limited to just 2 weeks instead of 3 weeks. With 5th grade science fair projects, you can encourage your child to seek more answers to his questions simply because the materials and equipment used are easy to use and the processes adopted are easy to follow.

5th grade science projects are a little more involved than previous years, and are generally done by the students with little help from their teachers or parents. They may need some guidance along the way, but most of the work should be done by the student. Fifth grade students are old enough to handle the responsibility of choosing a topic, asking a question and experimenting to find the answer to their question. It can be a lot of fun for parents and teachers as well as the students. This is really the first year they will be coming up with the ideas and doing the work themselves, so it is quite interesting to see what sort of projects they will choose.

About eight years ago, I was in my New York City apartment one Saturday morning, thinking about all the people in my life who made a difference. There were many, but my fifth grade teachers face swam into focus. The image of her powerful smile was crystal clear. As soon as I saw her in my minds eye, my attention immediately focused on a way to thank her. I got quiet and reflected on this. A few moments later an idea was born. Why not thank her on a national talk show? What could be better than that? The idea was so strong, so powerful and whats more it felt right. After firing off a letter to six national talk shows, I kept it to myself and waited. Ideas should be allowed to percolate and develop in secret before they are shared with the rest of the world. There is a time and place for everything, so I prayed that if it was meant to be, then Mrs. Jordan would be presented with a big surprise at just the right time.
