Reader Rabbit Personalized second grade features A.D.A.P.T. Learning Technology which is a system that is dynamic in its ability to make adjustments to the program in order to conform with the kids abilities as they grow. This means that their learning is bound to be ever stimulating, and not at one time frustrating, simply because the kids will be enjoying themselves tremendously, even as they face new challenges in the learning environment on a daily basis. A.D.A.P.T. Learning Technology is an acronym that stands for A. Assesses Abilities, D. Develop Skills, A. Adjusts Levels, P. Provides Help, T. Track Progress. It is with this technology that the kid is able to acquire the necessary skills in math, science, grammar and problem-solving skills.
Happily my daughter did get a 3rd prize nod from the science fair judges - while they noted that it was not exactly scientific it was one of the more original entries. Personally I think it was pure quantum physics - but thats another story! When the science fair was over and the jars returned to our home, I was given the opportunity to experience another specific difference between the 3 jars of rice. When cleaning out the contents of the jars, I removed the covers and each time was greeted with a unique and distinctive aroma. From the ignored rice there was a particular smell that reminded me of mildew - like opening a suitcase of damp clothes that had been forgotten in an attic long ago. The angry rice emanated a rather more offensive odor, similar to vomit - I didnt linger there!! Finally, when I removed the lid of the rice that had received love, there was a distinctive sweet fruity smell - quite pleasant in fact. It doesnt take much of a scientific brain, or imagination for that matter, to draw the conclusion that good thoughts produce preferable results. If our thoughts can affect cooked rice in this way it would be fair to assume that we similarly affect the food we eat with the thoughts we think when we are preparing it. Imagine how we might affect others by what we think of them or indeed, how we affect ourselves with the thoughts we think day in and day out over the period of our lifetime.
Helping your student practice their 2nd grade spelling words is not only necessary, it can help them become better readers. Also, knowing words on sight can build confidence as your child is required to write more. Lastly, getting 100% on a spelling test can make your child feel pretty special so make sure you post those grades on the refrigerator for some positive reinforcement. Tip #1 - Read. Reading to your child or having them read to you is by far one of the best ways for your child to become better at spelling. They become familiar with the words and the intricacies of the English language. Let you child pick books of interest from the public library, the school library or purchase grade level appropriate books. Many books have grade levels on the front cover which makes it easy for parents to know which books will be right for their child.
What to Look for in Tutoring Programs The most important thing youll want to avoid when it comes to getting your child extra help is to leap on the workbooks and homework. Kids will resent this "extra work" and will come up with unusually creative ways to avoid it! Instead, youll want to look for an educational program that actively encourages them to interact and participate with it, while earning rewards for successful answers. Ideally, the 2nd grade help program you choose is engaging and fun for the kids, while providing detailed learning reports for parents and teachers. For example, you should be able to clearly see what your child is doing well in, where they could use improvement, and what lessons theyre currently learning right now.
Worksheets Worksheets have been around since school began. It is the tried and true method of most teachers. While many schools are getting away from strictly using worksheets as a method for teaching, they are necessary at some point. In 2nd grade, kids can begin to do worksheets on their own with little direction. Providing worksheets in combination with other teaching methods will reinforce the topics that are being taught, as well as give teachers a way to gauge each childs understanding of the topic. Computer Today, computers are an essential part of teaching. Using computers in your 2nd grade lesson plan allows children who are visual learners to really get a grasp on the topic. Using a computer lets children use their eyes, ears and hands. All these senses combine to give children a great method of learning. There are many reputable educational websites available that provide games that are perfect to incorporate into your lesson plans. They coincide with the basic 2nd grade curriculum, giving teachers another outlet for their lessons. Hands-on learning, worksheets and computer time all create the perfect combination of learning for students of all abilities. Each classroom is filled with a diverse group of children. Rather than catering to the way the majority learns, incorporate a wide variety of methods in your 2nd grade lesson plan and watch your students flourish.
A few years ago, when it was time to consider ideas for the annual science project at my daughters elementary school, we found ourselves once again looking for something that would be just a little bit different. I dont know why but there is only so much inspiration one can find in determining which roll of kitchen paper has the greatest absorbency capacity or what happens to a white flower if you place the cut stem in a vase of colored water. At a timely moment I happened to recall some pictures of cooked rice I had seen in the water crystal book by Masaro Emoto - the basic story was that cooked rice will age differently depending on the thoughts one projects toward it. OK - this was novel - something that really sparked our curiosity, so my then 7 year old, Bella, and I decided to see what would really happen if we did this experiment on our own.
