What I consider to be his worst mistake, and this is again an inexperience issue because he hasnt yet seen this happen, is that he didnt consider the mathematical harm that he would cause his students. They wont experience the harm until next year when their 4th grade teacher expects certain knowledge that they wont have. I have no doubt that this young man can teach mathematics to 3rd graders. But I know from many years of experience with UCSMP, that the terminology used and the methods used vary greatly from what is found in a more traditional text. Unless he has been fired or put back on the district path, his 3rd grade students will have a difficult time in 4th grade math. His students deserved better from him.
Fencing - Physical Chess. The cliches surrounding the sport highlight the fact that successful fencers are very smart people. Is this the result of smart people fencing, or that fencing makes people smarter?Recent studies are showing that the latter is true, so head out to the fencing salle, learn some moves, and boost your brainpower! The science is in: physical activity boosts your brainpower. Intuitively, it seems natural that physical fitness would be linked to sharper intelligence, and according to a recent presentation at the 57th Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), exercise makes you smarter. This is good news for everyone, but particularly so for kids in school looking to make the grade.
With this in mind, playing memory games can also help a child remember 3rd grade spelling words. Teaching a child tips to help them remember how words are spelled can be a great help to him. For instance, grouping words with "qs" in them may help the child remember that the letter is always followed with "u." Also, breaking up larger words can help a child see how easy it is to spell. Finding ways to study over time is another way to learn 3rd grade spelling words. Letting the child practice the words without pressure can be a good way to help him or her get used to the words. Along with studying throughout the week, the child should also study the night before the test in order to keep the information fresh in his or her mind the next day. The child may be more committed to learning the day before and may just get the needed boost to commit the words to memory.
Emphasize Skill Building In any academic subject, skills build upon each other as a child learns. If even one math concept has a child lost or confused, theyll have a hard time understanding the next thing that theyre meant to be learning. Its important to put emphasis on skill building at an early age so that, by the time they reach 3rd grade math, kids have the foundation necessary to begin learning and mastering more complex concepts. A knowledge of math facts is key at this level, especially when it comes to multiplication. In order to come to a full understanding of these facts, kids need to be proficient in addition and subtraction. Both of these processes involve a clear understanding of how numbers work together, a skill which can be tested and reinforced through the use of math games and interactive learning tools.
Just because your child will be playing fun online games doesnt mean the same value wont be there. Create a comfortable study zone. Turn off outside distractions such as cell phones, radios or TVs. Make sure your child is not tired or hungry so that he or she can focus all attention on learning. Also try to keep the lessons consistent with what is being learned in school. A quick chat with the teacher or signing up for an online newsletter from the classroom are ways to keep tabs on the lesson plans. Since 3rd grade math relies on the concepts that were learned during kindergarten, first and second grades, dont be afraid to start your child at a lower level. With adaptive learning, the programs wont move on to the next level until your child has a firm grasp on the current material. The online games will be a wonderful way for your child to catch up on basic arithmetic concepts and be comfortable using them across applications.
With all of this research supporting the connection between physical fitness and brainpower, all the more reason to participate in a sport like fencing. Fencing is unique, a sport that asks its participants to make moves and calculations in an instant. In the game of chess, players must think several moves ahead in order to execute a winning strategy. Fencing, similarly, requires the fencer to carefully engage with his or her opponent in order to exploit weakness and score a point. Success in fencing is entirely dependent on the minuscule moves and split-second decisions a fencer makes when competing. So, it seems that by participating in vigorous fencing, not only is a fencer using his brain, hes increasing his intelligence.
