You may be wondering why should you go about teaching your baby to read. After all, dont they learn to read in school? Yes, most children learn to read in school, although many struggle with reading, which sets them back in other subjects. Children that struggle with reading in third grade are reported to never catch up. Many high school graduates cannot even read past a 5th grade reading level. Newspapers are written on a 6th grade reading level because there are millions of people that cannot read past that level. By investing a few short minutes a day in teaching your baby to read, you can avoid having your child be one of these statistics. When you measure the time it takes to teach your baby to read against the benefits to your child, it is really minimal. And besides that, teaching your baby to read is so fun!
Diatomaceous earth is a natural product that isnt exactly earth. It is actually the fossilized remains of microscopic organisms called Diatoms. You might remember them from junior high science labs. If you dont, ask a 5th grader! So these organisms create a shell around them that later gets fossilized and these fossils are ground formed in to diatomaceous earth, which is 84% silicon dioxide or Silica. It has already been proven by science that silica is that one trace mineral that is essential for human life. This is why this wonderful natural substance can prove to be highly beneficial when ingested by human beings.
Several years ago educators tried to launch national standards in education. Knowing that families move, some of them multiple times, it seemed invaluable to have some commonalities state to state. Otherwise kids in California learned about life science in the 5th grade and earth science in the 6th. After the student finished 5th his family moved to Idaho where students studied earth science in the 5th grade and life science in the 6th. While this offered the student a double-whammy in life science, this also meant that there was no formal earth science instruction so that when test time rolled around, the student was left with large learning gaps. National standards were intended to alleviate this stressful situation by ensuring that all students are taught what they need to know and understand with grade level expectations in mind. The biggest problem with the first go-round on national standards was the word "national". States rights folks determined that the federal government was interfering yet again with demands of what to teach, when, and how. While there was a "what to teach" foundation, these "whats" were items that students need to know and be able to do to be successful. The when was by grade level. These seem rather important and valuable for efficiency and continuity.
Learning during school hours is, quite often, not enjoyable for students. Self-directed activities such as the 5th grade science projects allow the kids to learn from involvement with hands-on projects, and that type of learning is shown to be retained by the student. Students involved in science fairs build friendships with other students and develop strong relationships with teachers and other leaders, making this type of event a valuable teaching tool. National attention is currently focused on student achievement in lower grades, with particular emphasis being placed on reading, math, and science. Opportunities like 5th grade science projects allow students to explore areas that are not always well covered in classes. Placing an emphasis on the core subjects (including science) beginning in 1st grade can foster an increased awareness of the relationship between subjects. Science and math are closely related, and generally success in one may lead to success in the other. Science fairs provide the student with multiple learning opportunities in those areas if the projects selected meet the criteria outlined above.
The saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" also can relate to your writing, with the correctly chosen words you can turn a simple sentence into a chapter of information. One of the biggest obstacles in writing for marketing is that we are trained to write "intelligently", by this I mean coming off with wording that demonstrates our full use of the English language. In English classes starting in high school, we are taught to expand our vocabulary and expound the use of it. Take the last sentence for example, it could have just as easily been written - "In English classes starting in high school, we are taught to use a lot of words and explain in detail what is happening." Both have the same meaning but each carries a different weight with readers. The first version is fine for something like a blog but in marketing you need to appeal to as many different styles of readers as possible.
The final stage of the learning model is wisdom. Wisdom comes from dialogue, demonstration, experience, and experimentation. For example, after making a dish a few times, I may decide to try altering the recipe by adding another spice or using different vegetables in the dish than are called for in the recipe. When I try these experiments, I learn what works and doesnt work for me, and that becomes my personal wisdom. Much of what it taught to young children never goes beyond Stage 1 of the model - data. They may find, for example, that the history of Native American tribes is interesting, but for most students the subject matter is neither relevant to their lives, nor does it have a purpose. In elementary and high school, these data are prescribed by the school system according to set curricula or what will be asked on tests. As adults, we self-direct our learning. Even if our employer requires us to take a course on some subject, we filter what is being taught for relevance and purpose in order to transform the data into information. When we apply what we have learned to our work or our lives, we transform it into personal knowledge. And as we gain experience in using our knowledge and skills, we may develop some personal wisdom around what works and what doesnt work for us in specific situations.
