Family was number one-Because of scarcity, we used to have plates, spoons and glasses that we kept for special guests. We children used Calabash or old utensils. At times my mother would cook and serve us with the best utensils and say we were her greatest guests. It was that way with everything she had. Conflict management-I called my mother "the silent striker." Dad would be like thunder announcing the end of the unfortunate soul or souls that crossed his line. My silent mother kept her cool no matter how threatening the situation seemed, and no matter how much someone needed to tell Dad he was wrong. But after she had a quiet talk with him, one knew by his contrite spirit he had received the message. She used the same silent striking strategy with neighbors and other women with whom she was forced to share her husband.
6th grade science projects are not expected to be original; it is perfectly okay to do an experiment that has been done before. Some schools start doing science fairs in sixth grade, but they are not usually too competitive as their purpose is really to get the students interested. The judges simply want to see that you have put the effort into your project and made up a nice presentation for it. Still, there are endless ideas of topics you can pick. One fun idea for 6th grade science projects is to see how well people can identify different smells when blind folded. This project is fairly simple. All you need is a blindfold and a few items with different smells. A few ideas might be vanilla, cinnamon, coffee beans, vinegar, and so on. There are many, many different things you can use. To do this project, you will need a volunteer or two. It would be a good idea to make up a chart in advance so you can record your results. Blindfold your volunteer and put each scent under their nose one at a time, and record whether or not they were able to identify what the scent was. Originality is not the key factor here at this age. The judges just want to see that you are capable of performing an experiment on your own, writing up a report on it and presenting your finding in an organized, easy to understand way. There is absolutely nothing wrong with doing an experiment that has already been done, as long as you try to make it your own.
In the past, it was common to visit science fairs where the projects were highly predictable. While the types of experiments evolved over time, the over-all themes tended to remain relatively constant. In recent years, that has started to change. Innovative teaching coupled with easier access to computers and sophisticated materials have allowed students to develop projects that are proving to be more cutting edge than ever seen in the past. Rapid advancement in sciences are quickly transmitted to schools through the use of computers. Increasingly savvy students quickly assimilate the knowledge and use it to develop truly unique experiments.
But enough with the games, lets talk some serious stuff. If you want to learn math, do a project like decorating a room. Do the whole works from calculating the paint or wallpaper, to calculating the material and sewing the drapes, to ordering and positioning the furniture. Design a new cabinet layout for your kitchen, including calculating cabinet dimensions, appliance positioning and project costs. Try building something like a drop desk or a play ground swing set, or a go-cart. How about doing a baking or sewing/quilting project? Do all the preparations for a dinner party, including the planning, shopping, seating arrangement, cooking, etc. Try paper trading some stock and track them for a year. Start an eBay business. Wow! Wouldnt that be something, having your childs math project turn into a home-based business that pays for your childs college education? Its possible and its real life.
Every parent wants to get the best for our kids, and if that means getting a math tutor to improve their below averaged grades, then so be it. Then, in what ways you can choose a good 4th-6th grade math tutor? You may already know that it is hard to find a job nowadays and just imagine what the world will be like after your kid grows up and reached the age where they need to work and look after themselves? Im sure you can; that child of yours is going to have to have a degree, minimum, to even be competitive with the other candidates; so doesnt it make sense to strengthen up those weak subjects as early as possible in their academic career? To start with, when looking for a 6th grade math tutor, you have to work out whether your child responds best to a male or a female teacher; it could make all the difference when it comes to them actually paying attention, and learning what they need to. How do you know which they respond to best?
Just find out from their school which subjects they perform best in, and find out who the teacher is, then see if the majority of the classes that they perform best in have male or female teachers. You could just ask your child, but often they just pick the gender that they think they get away with doing the least work with. Now that you have that sorted out, and can start to look for applicants, youll need to know about the qualifications to be looking out for. When looking at qualifications for your 6th grade math tutor, the applicants should be at least an undergraduate, or someone with a teaching degree.
