A child who enjoys the art of building would love a project that involves the making of a model to demonstrate a concept or results. 3rd grade science fair projects may be a collection of objects or insects (for example). For the project to be interesting, make sure that it answers a question relating to the topic. Encourage your child to experiment and to write down his findings. The child will then be used to this idea when he must present projects for school purposes. 3rd grade science fair projects can be presented in various ways. The student could write the results in a report or make an attractive poster. Models, as mentioned above, are also fascinating. Help your child organize his poster or display in a neat and logical fashion. Photos or computer printouts help towards the visual appeal of the project. The use of color is important to make each section of the project stand out on its own, but make sure that the main focal point is the purpose and original question of the project. The pictures, results and conclusions can be arranged around the main purpose of the project.
Ronald Bass, one of the lead researchers in an ACSM study of middle-schoolers academic performance and relative physical fitness, found that "students meeting cardiovascular fitness standards were six times more likely to meet or exceed Illinois reading standards and over two-and-a-half times more likely to meet or exceed the math standards." If this werent the most compelling reason to reverse the watering-down of physical education in our schools, it would be hard to find the one that is. The best brain-boosting results are found from cardiovascular exercise, the same type of exercise experienced by avid fencers. Fencing is just one of many sports that incorporate vigorous cardiovascular movement.
Recently my son Jack, whos in 3rd grade, had to do a book report and I spent some time guiding him through the process. His teacher had asked the report to consist of 6 elements: Title, Setting, Main Characters, Plot, Problem, and Solution. This got me thinking about how Smart Women could use this exercise to create a clear and focused plan for their business and entrepreneurial dreams. Having a firm foundation is essential for any business to have sustainable growth and long-term success. What do you need in order to create a firm foundation for your Big Idea, Dream, or Goal? You need the same 6 elements that my son Jack used in his book report:
I close my eyes; Im back there banging fat felt eraser blocks together making chock dust clouds slide down the slanted rays of sunshine coming through the open window on this golden afternoon the first week of 3rd grade. I try not to breathe that fuzzy stuff in, but it doesnt really matter because I am elated with my elevated position. I feel special. Close my eyes again to travel back even further; I smell the suffocating odor of steaming hot wool as the nurses at Good Samaritan Hospital wrapped my paralyzed limbs in these cooked blankets rather than let me start 2nd grade with my friends. Hot packs they were called; the doctors said if I was a good girl and let them wrap me up as though I were a sausage several times a day I might someday wiggle my toes again. Well, did I have a choice? I was a good girl, but try as I might, not one of the ten moved. But that didnt really matter because I wasnt in an iron lung like some of the kids - I could breathe on my own. (Jonas Salks miracle was yet to come.)
We all, as parents, wish our kids are smart in Math. Pretty much like the Asian kids. Todays world has acknowledged the superiority and ingeniousity of the math skills of Asian kids. We as parents or teachers always indulge in the discussions of rote memorizing the times tables which results in dull boring way to tutor our children. Asians on the other hand have been using age old technique of Abacus education. Abacus education fits right in this modern world. Abacus as a tool is used in many Asian schools, public and private, to teach children aged 3 through 8 the basic of mathematics. Abacus allows children to learn numbers and calculations with fun. When a child uses his/her finger to move the beads on the abacus, the collaboration between finger movements and brain creates a pictorial memory in the childs mind. When using the abacus the child makes use of both his hands and this movement spurs both parts of the brain the left and the right part together and initiates development of the cells. Abacus nurtures the minds of children making them quicker and more accurate. Abacus mental math is that wherein the child visualizes the image of the abacus in his mind and then calculates accordingly.
With this in mind, playing memory games can also help a child remember 3rd grade spelling words. Teaching a child tips to help them remember how words are spelled can be a great help to him. For instance, grouping words with "qs" in them may help the child remember that the letter is always followed with "u." Also, breaking up larger words can help a child see how easy it is to spell. Finding ways to study over time is another way to learn 3rd grade spelling words. Letting the child practice the words without pressure can be a good way to help him or her get used to the words. Along with studying throughout the week, the child should also study the night before the test in order to keep the information fresh in his or her mind the next day. The child may be more committed to learning the day before and may just get the needed boost to commit the words to memory.
