  • 2). Can You Draw a Perfect Hexagon?  By : Peter Waycik
    It may not sound like a difficult task, but constructing hexagons and other polygons can be a frustrating and daunting task for children and adults. A sketch of a square is fairly simple to make as the corners are familiar right angles that most people have no trouble creating. Every other regular polygon from equilateral triangles to dodecagons and beyond can be a challenge without a highly developed ability to recognize and construct a variety of angles.

  • 3). Learning Math With Manipulatives - Base Ten Blocks (Part III)  By : Peter Waycik
    In the first two parts, representing, adding, and subtracting numbers using base ten blocks were explained. The use of base ten blocks gives students an effective tool that they can touch and manipulate to solve math questions.

  • 6). Reading Strategies For Struggling Readers  By : Peter Waycik
    Struggling readers are simply individuals who have not learned effective reading strategies. Don't be too concerned if you aren't familiar with the term, "reading strategies;" most good readers never had to learn them; instead, they just use them naturally. Struggling readers, on the other hand, have no idea how their friends can finish their work before they make it through the first paragraph.

  • 7). Learning Math With Manipulatives - Base Ten Blocks (Part I)  By : Peter Waycik

  • 9). Basic Strategies And Tactics On Chess  By : Robert Michael
    Improving your Chess Strategy Chess is a game about strategy and tactics above all. Each player commands an army of 16 chess pieces.

  • 14). What Are The Best Ways Of Teaching Spelling?  By : Teresa Styles
    It seems that most studies of teaching spelling begin at the same place: a child’s understanding of communication begins with sound. From infancy they are surrounded by sounds, which become words. As they are exposed to printed text, they learn to associate phonemes, the sounds they here with graphemes, the visual representation of those words. Toddlers who are exposed to the alphabet are usually fascinated with the letters.

  • 15). Flexible Estimation in Math  By : Peter Waycik
    Adults use rounding and estimation in their everyday lives. They approximate the temperature, the cost of items, the time, and even their age. Consider this conversation: "How much did it cost to fix your car?" "Six hundred bucks!" Without any words such as: about, approximately, around, roughly, or nearly, it can be assumed that the second person rounded the actual cost.

  • 17). Teach Your First Grader How To Spell  By : Lisa Scott
    Our education begins from the day we're born. While we don't immediately plunge into school, we're constantly exposed to new things that help develop our minds. Academics are only part of our long journey to knowledge. By the time we enter kindergarten, we are ready to begin the reading and writing aspects, but at a slow and steady pace. Too much too soon can overwhelm and confuse us.

  • 18). ESL Jobs FAQ  By : Josef Essberger
    Are there really any ESL jobs for me? Yes, there are. Rightly or wrongly, the whole world wants to learn English. People everywhere, especially young people, are convinced that speaking good English is their passport to a successful career. What is more, they are being encouraged in this by many governments. Worldwide, there are many more ESL jobs than there are native-speaking EFL teachers to fill them (though it should not be forgotten that English is also taught by perfectly competent non-native teachers).

  • 24). Music And Your Child’s Development  By : Jennifer Tarzian
    As the mother of a two year old, I am always looking for activities that encourage learning and development. I find that most of the activities we do together that result in learning are purely by coincidence and luck – not by any skill or training I have. As of late, my son has shown a real passion for music. He has even begun to differentiate between styles of music he likes and dislikes – his preferences are Contemporary Christian and Country, of course those both fall behind any song done by The Wiggles.

  • 25). Modeling Student Behavior  By : Frank Holes Jr.
    Whether you as a teacher realize it or not, you are the best model of behavior in your classroom. A large part of your proactive behavior plans should include your own behavior you demonstrate to the students every day. You must set expectations for your students, demonstrate the behaviors, and be vigilant to correct the kids. Don't waver on your expectations; inconsistencies will only confuse the students and cause you more problems.
