Now, imagine the same child having access to an online math learning environment. By paying a monthly subscription, sometimes as little as $20 a month, your child will immediately have access to a system where expert tutors will explain these math topics in an engaging and easy to understand way. If you child didnt fully understand the first time they watched an online tutorial, they can watch it over and over again. Many online learning environments have examples that tutors will go through and also give you some example to go through at your own pace, so that you can complement your childs learning. For many parents, having access to an online learning system to help their child with math is a lot more cost-effective than getting a personal math tutor.
The Douglas Academy Current and former students, community members and staff from the San Antonio Schools staff gathered in the historic auditorium of Douglass Academy on Sept. 26 for a homecoming celebration and dedication ceremony to mark the completion of a major construction and renovation project at the school. "Douglass Academy has a rich history and tradition. Our children here have inherited that history and they have the potential to become all that they want to be," said District Superintendent Dr. Robert J. Durón on the stage where legend has it that Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday and B.B. King once performed.
6th grade science projects are not expected to be original; it is perfectly okay to do an experiment that has been done before. Some schools start doing science fairs in sixth grade, but they are not usually too competitive as their purpose is really to get the students interested. The judges simply want to see that you have put the effort into your project and made up a nice presentation for it. Still, there are endless ideas of topics you can pick. One fun idea for 6th grade science projects is to see how well people can identify different smells when blind folded. This project is fairly simple. All you need is a blindfold and a few items with different smells. A few ideas might be vanilla, cinnamon, coffee beans, vinegar, and so on. There are many, many different things you can use. To do this project, you will need a volunteer or two. It would be a good idea to make up a chart in advance so you can record your results. Blindfold your volunteer and put each scent under their nose one at a time, and record whether or not they were able to identify what the scent was. Originality is not the key factor here at this age. The judges just want to see that you are capable of performing an experiment on your own, writing up a report on it and presenting your finding in an organized, easy to understand way. There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing an experiment that has already been done, as long as you try to make it your own.
Family was number one-Because of scarcity, we used to have plates, spoons and glasses that we kept for special guests. We children used Calabash or old utensils. At times my mother would cook and serve us with the best utensils and say we were her greatest guests. It was that way with everything she had. Conflict management-I called my mother "the silent striker." Dad would be like thunder announcing the end of the unfortunate soul or souls that crossed his line. My silent mother kept her cool no matter how threatening the situation seemed, and no matter how much someone needed to tell Dad he was wrong. But after she had a quiet talk with him, one knew by his contrite spirit he had received the message. She used the same silent striking strategy with neighbors and other women with whom she was forced to share her husband.
The next step is a conversation about why boys/girls act the way they do, followed by lots of questions about crushes, flirting and relationships. Theres also some discussion about parents and why they seem to be so annoying, but at this point the kids are much more interested in themselves and their classmates. We have one more day together. I ask each gender separately how they would like to frame our last day together. Unanimously the kids tell me they would like to ask each other some questions to gain understanding into why boys/girls act the way they do. I give them an opportunity to write down their questions anonymously and end with an "anxiety check". Everyone is feeling pretty comfortable.
I have a friend who is an architect. Its a good career for him. He is skillful at what he does, he enjoys the work, and he cant see himself in another field. His degrees are all from Ivy League institutions and in almost every way, hes the sort of person that gets held up as a role model for students, especially students who dont like math and need a reason to study the subject. The irony is that he doesnt particularly like math, doesnt consider himself to be good at the subject, and almost didnt follow through on his dream of becoming an architect because he was alarmed by the frequent declarations of math teachers that architecture is a profession that uses a lot of math.
