Teaching babies to read will give them a strong start in life and open up many opportunities for your child. Imagine what awaits a child who starts Kindergarten reading on a 5th or 6th grade reading level, or higher! When children are taught to read as babies they learn to read in a more efficient manner, since this is the natural period of language development. They are better readers. They comprehend the material at a deeper level than people taught to read by rules at a later time. They are also able to read faster. Parents of early readers report that their children can read through thick books at an incredible rate.
You are standing at a pivotal crossroads once again in your life, not unlike the time frame during your 10th to 11th year. What year was it when you were 10-11 years old? What was the decidedly prominent focus occurring in the local, national, and worlds news? This information can be found on the internet should you be so inclined, interested and vested enough to search for it. What you turn over from the soil of discontent will prove to be surprising and relevant. The undisputed fact that everything is connected shows its true light during this dark search. It was during this phase of your individual life, that an element of unexpressed talent can be recovered. You laughed a lot, felt uninhibited and free as you never had before or since.
5th grade parents, now is the time to help your child get organized for middle school success. The demands on a childs organizational skills increase dramatically. Why is the 2nd semester of 5th grade such and important time in a childs development? The big jump is coming! That leap from the cozy classroom of the 5th grade will seem like a distant memory when your child hits the hallways of the new middle school. The noise, the confusion, the complexity. While most of todays middle schools put a valiant effort into smoothing the way for 6th graders, it is often at the beginning of this transition grade that any issues a child has with organizational skills will quickly come screaming to the forefront.
The hierarchy of sentinel importance established during this season is still maintained by you today. Your worlds parameters are constructed, bent, and hewn by the unconscious motivating factors launched during this monumental time frame. No other time is your mother so vitally important, along with the role she played in your life. Where was your father? Did he make any explicit impact during this phase? Ponder. Your indispensable educational bent of mind was implanted during this all consuming year of conversion. From 10 to 11 you made an abrupt shift in consciousness which is being revisited at his point in your sphere of influence.
Understanding of elements of energy such as heat: This is a project that is designed to help a child to understand the various forms of energy. A good example is to determine how much heat is required to heat a very cold or hot bean. Place the bean seed in the deep freezer for 10 hours, another bean seed in the refrigerator, another under room temperature and another pre-heated for 2 hours. Cook all the seeds in a microwave for about 5 minutes and determine their levels hardness. The one that remains harder would be because it needs more heat to cook it. Therefore energy is transferred from one form to another.
The final stage of the learning model is wisdom. Wisdom comes from dialogue, demonstration, experience, and experimentation. For example, after making a dish a few times, I may decide to try altering the recipe by adding another spice or using different vegetables in the dish than are called for in the recipe. When I try these experiments, I learn what works and doesnt work for me, and that becomes my personal wisdom. Much of what it taught to young children never goes beyond Stage 1 of the model - data. They may find, for example, that the history of Native American tribes is interesting, but for most students the subject matter is neither relevant to their lives, nor does it have a purpose. In elementary and high school, these data are prescribed by the school system according to set curricula or what will be asked on tests. As adults, we self-direct our learning. Even if our employer requires us to take a course on some subject, we filter what is being taught for relevance and purpose in order to transform the data into information. When we apply what we have learned to our work or our lives, we transform it into personal knowledge. And as we gain experience in using our knowledge and skills, we may develop some personal wisdom around what works and what doesnt work for us in specific situations.
