Next. New Teachers Beware! The INTERNET is a living growing thing. What you write is there for everyone to see, and it is forever. Think long and hard before you put anything on the INTERNET. It can come back to bite you quickly or many years later. (How dumb do you have to be to secretly go against the desires of the school district and then brag about it online? Yet another reason he deserved to be fired.) Always remember that wherever you go and whatever you do, you are first and foremost a teacher. You are held to a higher standard. You have a responsibility to be a good role model for your students. Never forget that.
Tracking Progress and Introducing New Lessons Math programs can also generate charts for teachers and parents that show a childs progress over time. By using these charts, parents can spot math lessons that might benefit from different instruction techniques and discuss this with teachers. Theres also a more tangible benefit to math software for 3rd grade kids. Young children enjoy working with computers, and by using math software at home and in the classroom, youll be helping your child stay interested in his or her education. Learning math can be a very positive experience. This is one of the most powerful gifts that parents can give to their kids and certainly one of the most effective ways to treat the various problems that young children have with mathematics.
So, whats wrong with this picture? It certainly seems that he cares about his students and wants what is best for their mathematical futures. If you have read any of my other articles, read my bio, or have been to my website, then you know how important mathematics education is to me; and this situation quite literally appalls me on many levels. New teachers! Are you paying attention? When you get hired by a school district, you are agreeing to teach what they want you to teach, when they want you to teach it, and how they want you to teach it. If you dont want to do that, then you go teach elsewhere. You do not get to unilaterally decide to go off on your own. The school district chose that math series for a reason. This teacher deserved to be fired for breach of contract at the very least. If he was so troubled by the math series, he should have talked to his supervisor immediately. There were solutions to his problems that never got explored because he was so sure he knew better than anyone else. And FYI: Those older teachers have survived in the teaching field because they are wiser and have lots of valuable experiences and lessons to teach you. Take advantage of them. (I am pretty sure that his problems resulted as much from his lack of experience as from the textbook series. The first year of teaching is difficult for everyone.)
Fencing is already a sport associated with intellectualism, often called "physical chess" by coaches, fencers, and fans. Participation in the this sport requires fitness and concentration, a powerhouse duo when it comes to increasing brainpower. The study presented at the ACSM Meeting found that among 266 undergraduates, those who exercised vigorously for at least 20 minutes per day had higher grade point averages than those who did not. This isnt the only study showing that physical fitness is linked to greater success in school, and the effect is not limited to college students. Dr. Charles H. Hillman, an Associate Professor at the University of Illinois found that among 259 Illinois 3rd and 5th graders, those in the best physical shape also scored highest on math and reading in standardized testing. Regardless of the childrens individual socioeconomic situation, the findings held.
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.
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.
