My friend went to a "mindfulness in education" conference over the summer and has completely restructured his classroom and the way he runs it this year. There are couches in the corner where students can work, clip boards in hand. The room is full of plants and they even have a class hamster, Veronica, which students can visit if theyve finished their work. "I want them to feel comfortable in here," he told me and for the most part, they appeared to be. After the lesson got started, it looked much more like your average math class, with a do now and work stations and group work, but the community that has been established certainly gave the room a different feel. Its an interesting experiment and one that the administration at my school has supported thus far.
Do you plan summer outings to nature centers or parks? Take this opportunity to learn about trees or plants. Otherwise, consider having your child help you plant a garden. Get some basic books from the library to help your child understand the basics and get them a little gardening gear for fun. Have them keep a little journal over the summer about what theyve learned about each activity. Have them draw pictures or make leaf prints. You can even have them store leaf specimens in little baggies that you can staple to the journal pages. Have them journal about vacations too. With just a little planning, it is easy to incorporate learning into nearly any activity.
The first thing you need to do is prepare to mail your postcards much longer than 3 months. Most prospects need to see your message at least 7 times before they become familiar enough with you to respond. Sure, some prospects will respond in the first 1 or 2 months but the bulk of them will respond further down the road. Plan your marketing budget accordingly. The next thing is to make sure you have a "prospect funnel" in place; a process for these prospects to respond to your marketing. For example, most marketing for Realtors means making a prospect call your cell phone and trying to sell them right then and there. But thats like trying to convince the girl you just met in the gym to "tie the knot" with you tomorrow at 7pm.
When kids enter 2nd grade, they should already have a good grasp of the building blocks of math, including basic addition skills, beginning subtraction concepts and the relationship between number values. Moving on to 2nd grade math means learning more difficult concepts in all of these areas, mastering new skills and laying the foundation for math taught in higher grades. Keeping Kids Focused One of the biggest challenges for teachers at all grade levels is keeping an entire classroom full of kids engaged, focused and interested. The challenge is even greater at an elementary level as children are often still adapting to an environment that requires them to sit still for long periods of time, work quietly at their desks and take in a large amount of information over the course of the day. The addition of 2nd grade math games to the standard curriculum gives kids a break from seat work while still allowing teachers to present important math concepts. Using an interactive online framework that merges play with learning, teachers can grab the attention of every student in the class and keep them focused on the lesson from beginning to end.
Lesson plans always take a lot of time and dedication to put together. Each teacher has their own method to creating the perfect lesson plan in 2nd grade. One thing every teacher has in common is the variety that must be put into the plan. Children get bored when the same methods are used over and over again, especially young children in 2nd grade. Children need variety, including hands-on teaching, worksheets and even computer time. Each child has a different method of learning, which is why it is important for teachers to include variety in their 2nd grade lesson plan. Hands-On Learning Kids love to get their hands into things. Whether you are planning a science experiment or teaching a new math concept, giving children the ability to use their hands to learn gives them another view on the topic. Using more than one sense allows children to really get into what they are learning. Even kids who do not require hands-on techniques to understand a topic will enjoy the hands-on learning you provide.
Stay on Track with Grade-Level Objectives Youll also want to make sure that the 2nd grade help program you choose isnt a computer game masquerading as an "educational tool". Rather, the program should conform to nationwide and current educational objectives, so that you can be sure your child is learning precisely what they need to know at their current grade level, and nothing too easy or too advanced for their current skills. This kind of attention to detail is what sets the best 2nd grade help programs ahead of the competition while rewarding children for learning and building on what they know. By taking the time now to help them improve their education, youll make sure that your child is learning alongside their peers while hitting all the academic milestones they need to move confidently through elementary school and beyond. Its a small investment that can lead to a brighter future - and it starts with you.
