One of the implications for these findings is the importance of physical fitness programs for school aged children, and for increased support of school-sponsored fitness programs. Children spend a significant portion of their waking hours at school, and most schools have some type of physical education class during the week. The unfortunate by-product of poor student achievement in some schools is the elimination of physical education classes in an effort to increase instructional time. As we see here, this is probably the exact opposite prescription the children need. Some schools have not ignored the research done by Hillman and others exploring the connection between intelligence and physical fitness. For example, the Newsweek article points out that schools have already taking steps such as putting PE class before reading class. The result is better scores all around.
When determining what to select for 5th grade science projects, there are several factors that should be considered. What are the teaching objectives? Is the project practical for this age group? What is the cost factor involved? Is the project simple enough for students in this age group to complete successfully and learn from? If the project is to be entered into a science fair, is it portable? Perhaps most importantly, will the student have fun completing the project? The cost factor must be kept to a level that the student or the students parents can easily afford. Some schools may have scholarships available, but not all will. In high poverty areas this is especially important, so take advantage of any financial aid that is available. Being eliminated from competition based on the lack of financial ability may teach the student a lesson, but not the desired one. Lessons learned at this age will affect the students future attitude toward learning. Completing 5th grade science projects can enhance a students curiosity and willingness to learn in later grades. Relatively simple projects relating to physics principles or global warming might well foster an interest in more advanced projects later.
With this in mind, playing memory games can also help a child remember 3rd grade spelling words. Teaching a child tips to help them remember how words are spelled can be a great help to him. For instance, grouping words with "qs" in them may help the child remember that the letter is always followed with "u." Also, breaking up larger words can help a child see how easy it is to spell. Finding ways to study over time is another way to learn 3rd grade spelling words. Letting the child practice the words without pressure can be a good way to help him or her get used to the words. Along with studying throughout the week, the child should also study the night before the test in order to keep the information fresh in his or her mind the next day. The child may be more committed to learning the day before and may just get the needed boost to commit the words to memory.
Im ashamed to admit that I have just spent almost five hours trying to find his article again so that I could verify my facts. I was never able to find it again. (Did he get fired and remove it?) However, I found articles referring to a 23-year-old 1st year math teacher who taught 4th grade math in 2006; and I found a similar article referring to a 23-year-old female math teacher who was being praised for what she did. This is probably a good example of how stories change in the retelling. What I finally decided about the story was that it really doesnt matter whether it is true or not. Either way, it is a wonderful example both of something a new teacher absolutely should never do, and it is a good example of both of those major flaws in the Chicago Series.
3rd grade science fair projects are a lot of fun because at this age children are eager to explore the world around them and find out how things work. They are constantly wanting to know the answer to the question "What happens if I do this..." and therefore they will likely come up with many different experiments theyd like to try. It may be difficult to decide on just one! At this age they have a short attention span though, so the projects must be simple, fun and fairly short. There are many, many different project ideas for this age group such as; do all the children in their class have the same size hands and the same size feet as each other? They can research this by tracing the other childrens hands and feet on a piece of paper and comparing them to each other.
Online math software can be an effective way to practice at home, as math programs provide a steady source of new problems for children. Many modern math programs also use adaptive learning techniques to automatically change the types of problems that the child sees to adapt to his or her strengths and weaknesses. Your child will be consistently challenged and encouraged, which should lead to steady improvement. At the same time, past lessons will occasionally be revisited. This prevents your child from forgetting basic concepts that will be used in future lessons, thereby making every subsequent lesson somewhat easier.
