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!
Why Math Problems Become Apparent Halfway Through The School Year The first question that many parents have when a teacher mentions that a child is struggling with 2nd grade math is why they werent informed sooner. This can be an unfair question, as teachers are rarely aware of weaknesses until theyve had time to work with their students for several months. This is why mid-year math problems are fairly common with 2nd graders. In reality, kids who struggle with math are usually struggling with instruction techniques, which is why differentiated instruction is gaining favor in thousands of United States classrooms. However, it can be hard for both teachers and parents to spot problems and therefore make the appropriate changes. The right tools can make this process easier.
Happily my daughter did get a 3rd prize nod from the science fair judges - while they noted that it was not exactly scientific it was one of the more original entries. Personally I think it was pure quantum physics - but thats another story! When the science fair was over and the jars returned to our home, I was given the opportunity to experience another specific difference between the 3 jars of rice. When cleaning out the contents of the jars, I removed the covers and each time was greeted with a unique and distinctive aroma. From the ignored rice there was a particular smell that reminded me of mildew - like opening a suitcase of damp clothes that had been forgotten in an attic long ago. The angry rice emanated a rather more offensive odor, similar to vomit - I didnt linger there!! Finally, when I removed the lid of the rice that had received love, there was a distinctive sweet fruity smell - quite pleasant in fact. It doesnt take much of a scientific brain, or imagination for that matter, to draw the conclusion that good thoughts produce preferable results. If our thoughts can affect cooked rice in this way it would be fair to assume that we similarly affect the food we eat with the thoughts we think when we are preparing it. Imagine how we might affect others by what we think of them or indeed, how we affect ourselves with the thoughts we think day in and day out over the period of our lifetime.

This software is personalized to make a second grader build an entire year of skills. Being a 2 CD-ROM Set that boasts of a Learning Center disc that is personalized, a parent is able to see every participants progress on any given program which is using the Companys A.D.A.P.T. Learning Technology. It is possible for them to print out customized workbooks, activities, and reward certificates for every single participant in regard to information on their progress.
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.
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.
