The writing standards also provide four sections of emphasis: text types and purposes, production and distribution of writing, research, as well as the variety of writing. Students are asked to write to persuade, to inform or explain and also to detail a narrative of real or imagined events. They go through the writing process to produce clear and competent writing, while using the technology throughout. They should be able to conduct research to collect relevant information. Its important that they evaluate the credibility of sources, and also support their resulting ideas with specific citations.
Often, the instructional year is looked at in isolation. 5th grade teachers only look at 5th grade curricula, 3rd grade teachers only look at 3rd grade, 8th grade teachers only look at 8th grade, etc. Rather than planning your academic year based on your textbooks only, consider looking at your academic year as one "leg" in a relay race. Its your job as an educator to cover the skills, strengths, "speed," and accuracy of the leg youre on, as well as the hand off to the next leg in the race. Using backwards educational goals makes this much easier, and the scope of your classroom instruction will be much more thorough.
This was one of the Ah-ha! moments of my life. If these children could not take apart and put together concrete objects as basic as simple inset puzzles, how on earth could they take apart and put together abstractions, such as letters and sounds. Our classroom changed. I kept those opened puzzles in the classroom, and I bought more simple inset puzzles for my students, as well as easy interlocking puzzles with only a few pieces. The students became adept at taking these puzzles apart, then putting them together again to create a predetermined whole. I bought blocks for the classroom, which they put together, then took apart, then put together again in different ways, creating a wide range of things, similar to what we do with letters when sounding out words.
There are a lot of ways to help your child study their 4th grade spelling words. Once your child reaches 4th grade, they are already reading fairly well and the challenges of school are increasing. Many children bring home spelling lists of nearly 30 words or more to learn each week. Spelling can be fun and its a great way to improve your childs vocabulary and confidence. For students and parents to rise to the new challenges of 4th grade, we have compiled some quick tips for spelling success. Tip #1 - Study spelling words often during the week. Theres no substitute for practice and, as they say, practice makes perfect. If your child can study multiple times before test day, your childs scores should improve.
Whatever the case may be, Im sad in a way that Ive checked that one off my list. Not because I didnt want to fix things with Elizabeth, but because I feel slightly older and like Im at the end of a magnificent book with only a few chapters left. I know that is not really true and that fifty is the new thirty, whatever that means. But maybe what it means is its time to make a new list, a more fun list. Maybe there are two life lists. The first part of your life and the first list you are cleaning up old issues and the second part of your life and second list are meant to have unencumbered fun. That thought makes me smile.
Since the recession of 2008, there has been a new global war taking form. If you were to query the billions that live on our planet what is the #1 thing they all want from their government leaders, the answer would be an economy that provided good jobs. Everyone in the world wants a good job. Today, the war for jobs around the globe has trumped all other leadership activities. If countries fail at creating jobs, their societies fall apart. Countries, and cities will experience suffering, chaos, and eventual revolution. This is the new world that leaders confront. This can be seen as much at city level as it is at the country level. Look at post-recession Detroit, MI; or Cleveland, OH.
