Admittedly the yelling of mean slurs was the most difficult thing of all. It was hard to be sincere and we felt that the rice would somehow know if we were just pretending to hate it. Fortunately, a few days into the experiment, a friend came to visit who had regularly displayed a tendency toward anger management problems. He was able to throw insults with convincing aplomb, so we thankfully delegated this job in order to dispense with any guilty feeling for being so mean ourselves!! Within a few days we were assured of his authenticity when a bottle of beer spontaneously exploded right after he had let loose an angry tirade toward the unfortunate rice - strange happenings were definitely afoot!
Tip #5 - Use Speech Recognition. Many computers come with Speech Recognition software ready to be installed. You can set it up for free and if you have a child who learns verbally, they might like try using the spelling feature so they dont have to type. As you tell them the words, they would spell them into the microphone as they are typed onto the screen. For Microsoft users, you go to Start > Control Panel > Speech Recognition Options to set up the program. 2nd grade spelling words are usually harder and more complex than first grade. By trying a few of the tips above, you can help your child learn his spelling words in no time. Mix it up a little so your kids dont get bored and try to have fun. Spelling can build confidence in reading and writing so take some time to practice with your children.
What to Look for in Tutoring Programs The most important thing youll want to avoid when it comes to getting your child extra help is to leap on the workbooks and homework. Kids will resent this "extra work" and will come up with unusually creative ways to avoid it! Instead, youll want to look for an educational program that actively encourages them to interact and participate with it, while earning rewards for successful answers. Ideally, the 2nd grade help program you choose is engaging and fun for the kids, while providing detailed learning reports for parents and teachers. For example, you should be able to clearly see what your child is doing well in, where they could use improvement, and what lessons theyre currently learning right now.
To create the atmosphere of a true scientific experiment, we took 3 jars and sterilized them to make sure they were equally clean environments. We took a cup of freshly cooked rice and apportioned it equally between the 3 jars then immediately sealed them. The first jar was promptly placed on top of the refrigerator and forgotten about, the second was sadly labeled you fool, and the final jar was labeled with the words thank you. For the next week and a half we proceeded to ignore the first jar (other than to document our daily observations); we yelled nasty insults at the contents of the second jar and cooed loving sentiments each day toward the lucky rice in the third jar.
Monitoring Your Childs Progress If youre looking for an active way to get involved with your childs 2nd grade math lessons, you should make sure that youre using appropriate tools. Youll have to find an effective means of charting your childs progress over the course of the year to mark improvements and to spot any future math problems before they have time to really develop. You can do this at home by using 2nd grade math software to help your child regularly practice basic math skills. There are a number of programs that can help you do this, and by tracking the number of correct and incorrect answers that your child submits, these programs create effective learning charts that you can use to guide your at-home lessons. Online games are particularly effective, as they can be used from both home and school computers.
When kids enter 2nd grade, they should already have a good grasp of the building blocks of math, including basic addition skills, beginning subtraction concepts and the relationship between number values. Moving on to 2nd grade math means learning more difficult concepts in all of these areas, mastering new skills and laying the foundation for math taught in higher grades. Keeping Kids Focused One of the biggest challenges for teachers at all grade levels is keeping an entire classroom full of kids engaged, focused and interested. The challenge is even greater at an elementary level as children are often still adapting to an environment that requires them to sit still for long periods of time, work quietly at their desks and take in a large amount of information over the course of the day. The addition of 2nd grade math games to the standard curriculum gives kids a break from seat work while still allowing teachers to present important math concepts. Using an interactive online framework that merges play with learning, teachers can grab the attention of every student in the class and keep them focused on the lesson from beginning to end.
