What was your 5th grade teachers name? How is that relevant to you, now? Dont try to apply logic just free flow with me a few moments. Focus on what significant characteristic you specifically remember about her/him. Indulge me if you will, as we tie up some very loose frayed ends. As you travel back in time to the address of residence, can you recall the specific numbers and name of street or road? If not, this minute, give it some thought later. See what shows up when you are least expecting it. Part of your self still remains in that sphere of life, in that classroom, in that school with that particular teacher; in the midst of very happy times, some sort of disappointment occurred. The lingering diffused memory of the disenchanting incident need not be obvious, but the memory of the teacher should.
She was so stubborn that the "Leeza" producers were forced to enlist the help of her husband, her daughter, and even the school principal to convince her to appear on the show. Thanks to their herculean efforts, they were finally able to cajole her into taking a few days off without revealing the real reasons for going. So far, so good. Less than a week later, she and her daughter boarded a flight to Hollywood, while I took a different plane out of JFK, several hundred miles away. When I arrived at the hotel in California, I was shocked to learn that they were staying in a room only one floor above me! The taping wasnt scheduled until the next morning, and while I wanted to avoid bumping into them, I didnt exactly relish the idea of being cooped up in my room and ordering room service. So I came up with a plan.
Mouthing the words, she said, "Its time. Follow me, please." I felt a lurch in my stomach. Here we go. The producer hurriedly led me to the studio, where Leeza and the studio audience were waiting for me. After personally introducing herself to me (Leeza was very warm and articulate, instantly putting me at ease), the red dome lights on all the cameras were blinking, which meant they were now taping. Easing herself into a chair next to me, Leeza started off the show by asking what it was Mrs. Jordan did for me over thirty years ago. I related the story about how the announcement of those three words, "THATS RIGHT STEPHEN," was such a powerful moment and how it forever changed my life.
5th grade science experiments are fun because the children are able to work more independently and find answers out for themselves. They dont need as much adult assistance and are expected to shoulder much of the responsibility in thinking up their own topic, question and experiment to find the answer. There are many possibilities for fifth grade science experiments, including seeing if the color of a light affects how bright it appears in fog or in water, finding out where the best place to store apples is, such as fridge, wicker basket or plastic bowl, or finding out if the temperature of a magnet affects its magnetic field lines. To find out, the students will need a few magnets, one from the freezer, one kept at room temperature and one heated up. Have the students trace the magnetic field lines of each magnet by putting iron fillings on a sheet of paper over the magnet. Another experiment students could try is to see if the starting temperature of water affects how long it takes to freeze. All you need to do is get three ice cube trays (or one and label the rows with the temperature of water you started with) and start with three different temperatures of water; hot, cold, and room temperature. When done, the tray is placed back in the freezer. The temperature of the water will need to be monitored to see which one freezes first, second, and third. Be sure to have the students record the results for all experiments!
Teaching babies to read will give them a strong start in life and open up many opportunities for your child. Imagine what awaits a child who starts Kindergarten reading on a 5th or 6th grade reading level, or higher! When children are taught to read as babies they learn to read in a more efficient manner, since this is the natural period of language development. They are better readers. They comprehend the material at a deeper level than people taught to read by rules at a later time. They are also able to read faster. Parents of early readers report that their children can read through thick books at an incredible rate.
With much wringing of hands and agitation, the Common Core Standards entered the scene. Very much like the "national" standards, these act as a guide, a format so that teachers in Colorado teach algebraic computation requirements and so do those in Alabama and New York. If we even want to discuss and then live a level playing field, common expectations for teaching and learning are critical. Again there were no day-by-day declarations on how to teach or specific methodology, just to make sure that students were being taught essentials. Guidelines and techniques are available, but as far as I know no school or district has created a verbatim script that teachers must follow. Astute teachers also recognize that Sally is ready for Step B while Tommy is off and running on Step D. And Susie needs enrichment to support her as she learns and masters difficult concepts. Adjustment for every child is indispensable to excellence in learning.
