Advancing to Higher Concepts No matter what level a child is at when entering 2nd grade, its essential for him or her to have a full understanding of new math concepts before the end of the year. Adding and subtracting numbers with multiple digits and cementing fluency in basic addition and subtraction facts are key ideas in 2nd grade math. Mastery of these skills sets the stage for being able to learn multiplication and division later on. By tracking progress from moment to moment, online math games can adapt to the skill level of every child and aid in preparing him or her to understand advanced numerical concepts. By incorporating virtual teaching tools and online math games, teachers can help to ensure that kids get a full grasp of each new concept as it comes. The individual attention that these games can offer takes classroom instruction to the next level, offering a better chance at success to a larger subset of students. With online games, 2nd grade math becomes fun and engaging for students regardless of skill level or learning style.
After seeing how meditation, carpet and couches have transformed my friends classroom, I wonder if this new thinking really works and what other kinds of experiments in education can make a difference. An Observation in Classroom Comfort I went in to watch a friend teach a lesson this week after hearing all summer about his plans to make his 9th grade classroom less intimidating and more student friendly. When I walked in students were sitting in a circle, some on a polka dotted carpet reminiscent of a 2nd grade, about to begin a one minute silent breathing exercise before starting the days work. Students were encouraged to block out all thoughts and just concentrate on inhaling and exhaling through their nose. I was impressed with how seriously they all took it. A freshman whom I had seen escorted out of an all school assembly for cursing out a dean, was now calmly concentrating on his breathing.
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!
Re-Teaching Math Lessons With Different Instruction Techniques Once youve spotted weaknesses, its important to deal with them right away. Stay in contact with your childs teacher and discuss the possibility of using different types of instruction to teach problematic lessons. Many teachers will appreciate the interest and may even be able to find ways to combine at-home and in-classroom lessons for the best possible results. Many children have problems with mathematics in the 2nd grade. Its a difficult age to encounter any academic difficulties and children often deal with frustration due to the complexity of their math lessons. By helping them at home and by using age-appropriate electronic learning tools, youll take a lot of the stress out of the situation, which will lead to better results and a better in-school experience for your child.
So after a prospect passes through the first part of the funnel, by responding to your postcard and signing up on your website, you now need to set up an "autoresponder" to send these prospects information and periodic updates. An "autoresponder" is a software system (my 4 year old can use it!) that allows you to email these prospects automatically. You can write a sequence of emails and have them sent to your prospects on the days and times you choose. In these emails, you can continue to give them valuable info, advice and tips but also direct them to the next step in the funnel; talking or meeting with you. For buyers, you could mention that they can email you or call for a free home tour. For sellers, you can let them know to email or call you for a free market analysis.
Many children start to show weaknesses in mathematics during the 2nd grade, as many classrooms introduce fractions, place values and other potentially difficult concepts. Addition and multiplication skills are also reinforced throughout the year, and if your child is struggling, he or she will likely continue to struggle without some help. Problems usually become evident towards the middle of the school year, as this is usually when children start falling behind and when new concepts are typically introduced. Fortunately, parents can help kids understand and perform 2nd grade math skills with some appropriate at-home practice.
