Within two weeks I was astonished to hear back from "The View" and "Leeza," which is no longer on the air today, and "The Gayle King Show" (King is Oprahs best friend - her show is also no longer on the air). From that moment on, everything was a dizzying blur. Of the three shows, the producers of "Leeza" were quicker to make arrangements, while those at "The View" and "The Gayle King Show" dragged their feet. My intuition told me to go with "Leeza" and not wait for the others to make up their minds. Mrs. Jordan was one of those teachers who never missed a day of class, so she didnt want to go to California to accept a "teaching excellence award." Good heavens, her fifth grade students were far more important than some frivolous award!
The third stage of learning is knowledge. Knowledge comes from applying the information you have gleaned to your work or your life. Until you apply that information, you cannot say that you really know it. For example, I like to cook. I have watched many cooking shows on television, and they provide a lot of data on recipes, ingredients, and cooking methods. Do I remember it all? No - I filter all that data for what I like to eat - those recipes that I would like to try become information for me - information that is relevant to my tastes in food and purposeful in that I want to try to make a particular recipe myself. But it is only when I actually try the recipe and cook something that I can say that I know how to make that dish.
When determining what to select for 5th grade science projects, there are several factors that should be considered. What are the teaching objectives? Is the project practical for this age group? What is the cost factor involved? Is the project simple enough for students in this age group to complete successfully and learn from? If the project is to be entered into a science fair, is it portable? Perhaps most importantly, will the student have fun completing the project? The cost factor must be kept to a level that the student or the students parents can easily afford. Some schools may have scholarships available, but not all will. In high poverty areas this is especially important, so take advantage of any financial aid that is available. Being eliminated from competition based on the lack of financial ability may teach the student a lesson, but not the desired one. Lessons learned at this age will affect the students future attitude toward learning. Completing 5th grade science projects can enhance a students curiosity and willingness to learn in later grades. Relatively simple projects relating to physics principles or global warming might well foster an interest in more advanced projects later.
For 5th grade science fair projects that are fun, easy and appealing, it is often best to use simple materials and equipment around the house and in stores as well as to apply simple processes. This way, your child will not be intimated by the thought of tackling complex materials and processes that can cause him to back out halfway through the project. Simple Materials and Equipment You need not spend plenty of money on buying complex and potentially hazardous materials like chemical substances to make an excellent science fair project. Your childs teacher will even discourage it because safety is always first in science.
At first I was irritated and even offended but like other things that I dont understand, I began to research it. Since then, it has changed even more since more people use the Internet and we are now capable of "connecting" nearly anywhere. This means there are a lot of distractions for the person reading your writing and keeping it simpler, with more white space on the page makes it easier for the reader. Shorter sentences, simpler words and using bullets and numbered lists make your online content more pleasing to the eye and the mind of the online reader. Its a different style of writing than offline magazines and other publications.
The Common Core Standards, at first glance, are a bit overwhelming and frightening. While I feel comfortable navigating the English/Language Arts since it is my specialty area, I do find them lengthy and somewhat overpowering on my first study. With examination and reflection I recognize that expectations such as "Describe a character... " runs K-12 as a common expectation, it is the complexity of the text that changes. Knowing this I can run the gambit of standards and integrate them quite simply regardless of grade level and student achievement level. Thus this magnificent list (98 pages, in fact) becomes less wieldy and eventually my friend.
