Parents Stay Updated on Their Childs Progress The best 2nd grade help programs arent just computer games. Rather, as your child continues through the program, you as the parent or caretaker can stay "in the loop" on their progress. You should be able to get detailed, on-demand reports of how well your child is doing and what areas he or she is struggling in, so that you can work with his or her teacher accordingly. Being able to watch as your child develops these critical skill can be rewarding too, since the right 2nd grade help program will fit perfectly in line with your childs second grade learning objectives and statewide goals. This means he or shes not learning something too advanced for his or her grade level and not too basic either. Finding a 2nd grade help program with all of these benefits will not only help your child develop a love of learning, as well as strengths in specific subjects, but it will also give you the peace of mind and confidence youre seeking to make sure that your child is on track with their peers and educational goals.
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.
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.
Experiments in Education As a relatively new teacher, I sense the entire education system has been and will continue to be going through various experiments in the coming decade particularly in poor urban neighborhoods. A classmate of mine just started working at an elementary school with a new experimental model - class size, 60; number of teachers, 4 Lessons are taught to every kindergartner and 1st grader in three different languages and the teachers dont get any breaks. Oh, and the master teacher on each grade level makes six figures but hasnt been in the system 22 years. I welcome the change and admire educators like my friend and classmate who are willing to go for it, while kidding themselves about the potential to fail. As I left his class, I couldnt help but wonder if they will learn any better, being comfortable. They may be less likely to cut the class but algebra on a couch with nature sounds playing in the background is still algebra. We have to be careful not to forget that people have been working on the issue of improving public education since public education has been around and that we dont need to create everything from scratch. On the other hand, to see significant results, we need significant change which may challenge much of what we consider education today.
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.
When kids enter 2nd grade, they should already have a good grasp of the building blocks of math, including basic addition skills, beginning subtraction concepts and the relationship between number values. Moving on to 2nd grade math means learning more difficult concepts in all of these areas, mastering new skills and laying the foundation for math taught in higher grades. Keeping Kids Focused One of the biggest challenges for teachers at all grade levels is keeping an entire classroom full of kids engaged, focused and interested. The challenge is even greater at an elementary level as children are often still adapting to an environment that requires them to sit still for long periods of time, work quietly at their desks and take in a large amount of information over the course of the day. The addition of 2nd grade math games to the standard curriculum gives kids a break from seat work while still allowing teachers to present important math concepts. Using an interactive online framework that merges play with learning, teachers can grab the attention of every student in the class and keep them focused on the lesson from beginning to end.
