Let us face it, when completing tasks we all love to do the easy things first. Why? Because it build our confidence. We get excited when we are ticking items off our to-do list. BANG! 1st item ticked off. BANG! Double tick that item now I am rolling. The only problem with the tick-off easy items first approach is that you use up your best energy at the start of any study session and so if you are tackling the easy parts with your best energy your energy reserves will be low when it comes time to tackle the hard part of what you need to get done. So what happens then? Bet you can not guess! You can guess? That is right - you get tired, you get grumpy, you get frustrated and then just give up and go play Xbox. We all do it. We really should not though. So get in the habit of dedicating your best energy to the difficult tasks first and completing the easy "I can do it with my eyes closed" stuff last.
During classroom time, you can even make division activities more interactive. Create groups of students in the classroom and give them all some objects like marbles, or other small objects. You can tell your students how many they have, and how they should divide out the marbles with their friends. This will quickly help them understand the basics of division, and added onto an understanding of adding, subtracting and multiplying they will soon be on their way to understanding more complex parts of their mathematics curriculum. Keep your students interested, and if you are helping your children, remember to keep encouraging them. No matter how hard they find it, they will soon get the hang of it.
While these games are fun, it often seems that guests like a good word scramble game best. Why is that? Unlike the games above, a word scramble does not require a good memory or manual dexterity. And in a word scramble game, all the guests can participate at once. In the rice bowl game mentioned above, while one person is trying to find the safety pins, the other 15, 20 or 30 guests are waiting and doing nothing.
If you must use worksheets, then be sure you do the following things: Know what you are buying. If you can not see it (there is no sample shown), then do not buy it. There are many people out there trying to make a buck off the current popularity of worksheets. Many, if not most, of these people know nothing about mathematics, teaching, or how the brain learns. Anyone can type columns of addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc. problems; but these worksheets will be bad for your child. Do not trust what you can not see.
Back in the dark ages of education, students spent 40 minutes 2-3 times a week doing drill and practice with a teacher who walked around and watched us do the work according to directions: up, down, up, down, etc. or up, down, curve to the left, up to the line and cross the lines, around and back to the line then out (that was the letter p). We used fountain pens so mistakes could not be erased and the teacher could see where we did not follow directions - boring was an understatement and probably what contributed to the lawsuit about drill/practice work in schools. Drill and practice is necessary for some skills to be learned. Without the repetition and practice, our bodies do not retain the information. Drill and practice is consistently used in athletics: throwing, catching, defensive/offensive techniques, etc. Athletes become adept through practice. Education has eliminated much practice in the classroom in favor of other skills which are also needed. Cursive writing has been sacrificed to those other skills.
A fully functional budgeting worksheet should calculate your monthly cash flow analysis so that you can determine if you are overspending based on your income on a monthly basis. In order to determine your cash flow for the month, you will need to provide your monthly income information. A good worksheet should do all the math for you, generate a meaningful chart or two so that you can quickly see the areas in your budget that need to be improved upon. If you are over spending, you will need to adjust. If you are under spending, start saving towards your goals!
Also, in a baby shower word scramble, all the letters needed for the solution are right in front of the player. Usually any player can quickly solve at least a few the words, giving her confidence as she continues to work. It is fun for each player to think and hope while she works, that perhaps SHE will be the lucky one who finishes first and wins a prize!So if it is your turn to plan a baby shower, how can you create a good baby word scramble? There are many important steps.
