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.
Tip #2 - Create Your Own Books. Get just five pages of paper and staple them together. Ask your child to write the story and illustrate it. You can help them with spelling and writing, but they should be doing the physical writing of the book. This allows their brain to remember the letters and spelling of words. Tip #3 - Make A Card Game. Its easy to make a card game like Go Fish or Memory out of spelling words. Create a template in Microsoft Word or a similar program and type the weekly words in, print them and cut them out. You can get creative if you have time and add clip art. Have a younger child? Save the cards because you might end up with the same lists for them someday! Tip #4 - Practice Spelling Online. There are many online spelling games available, some of which are even free. On some sites, you can use your own lists from your school. Take advantage of your childs comfort with computers to have them play a few games everyday online instead of simply writing the words out which can be tedious and boring.
Second grade is an exciting time for children. They learn crucial skills in math and reading that will serve as the foundations for the next school year and beyond. Unfortunately, many children start to fall behind their peers and classmates when they reach the second grade. Thankfully, getting 2nd grade help for your child is easier than ever. By being involved in their education now, youll help inspire a lifelong love of learning and an enthusiasm in the subjects that your child previously struggled in. Does Your Child Show These Symptoms of Needing Help? Many children wont admit that theyre having trouble in school. Thats why most parents and caregivers dont realize theres a problem until its too late to seek out 2nd grade help. If your child starts to show less and less interest in school, doesnt complete their homework, or has brought home a note from the teacher or principal - its time to get them the tutoring they need before things get worse. Oftentimes, children dont know how to express that they dont understand something, so they act out or become disruptive in class. Fortunately, by stepping in early, parents and caregivers can intervene and help their child overcome these issues and improve in challenging areas.
Do you plan summer outings to nature centers or parks? Take this opportunity to learn about trees or plants. Otherwise, consider having your child help you plant a garden. Get some basic books from the library to help your child understand the basics and get them a little gardening gear for fun. Have them keep a little journal over the summer about what theyve learned about each activity. Have them draw pictures or make leaf prints. You can even have them store leaf specimens in little baggies that you can staple to the journal pages. Have them journal about vacations too. With just a little planning, it is easy to incorporate learning into nearly any activity.
Id suggest taking it a little slower and having a "prospect funnel" in place to develop these relationships. Youll capture more prospects and turn more of them into active clients and closed deals. Let me explain this type of marketing for Realtors like this... One way to set up your "prospect funnel" is by having a website or blog ready for prospects so they can sign up for some kind of "Free Report" or "Free Video Tutorial on How to Save $7,000 When Selling." Get creative on something valuable you can offer them in exchange for their name and email. This way, you can now begin developing the relationship thatll lead to an active client and then a closed deal.
For the first few days, really not much transpired at all. The ignored rice was the first to get a little dot of black mold and then each of the others followed soon after. However we continued in our curious quest. All of a sudden, on day four, the ignored rice took a distinctive turn and a gray spider web like mold started to grow all over it and up the sides of the jar. Over the next few days it made rapid progress - we documented with pictures and watched the other two with excited anticipation. After a few more days rice in each of the other two jars started to develop distinctive characteristics. The rice that had been the recipient of the insults became dotted with black and covered with a rather pointed and spiked looking whitish/gray mold, while the loved and cared for rice started to turn pink!! I kid you not - this trend was documented with pictures and remained throughout the science fair display at the school.
