How do I get good grades?

I just entered the seventh grade but my grades are horrible. I really want to get good grades because it will make my family happy and me happy. My mom put me in tutoring and I get it there but after that I do not get it. The problem is, I HATE STUDYING. My mom says that I am smart but I have no interest. It is so boring and time consuming. I try to study but when I do, I get sidetracked and my mom gets angry. I also try to think of the end goal but when I do, I just say "it doesn't matter till high-school so why even try". Also I can never stay organized so take that out of the discussion. To make matters worse, I procrastinate and there is nothing I can do to stop it. I think part of the reason is because I am distracted by girls but I can't stop looking at the pretty ones. How can I get good grades to make me and every one I know happy? PS. remember the side tracked thing, I AM DOING THIS DURING MY HOMEWORK. HELP ME!

Early childhood education?


There are plenty of places that you can work in the early childhood education field that have health benefits and pay. If you truly have the heart for early childhood education, you should go for it, as there are not many people that truly have the heart for it.

Some places that you can work with benefits:
Public school system-pre-kindergarten teacher
County government-social worker for preschoolers
Self employed-home daycare provider, buy your own health insurance
Pediatrician-work with young children and make a lot of money
Daycare center-many provide health benefits
Good luck to you!

When people ask serious philosophical questions, what are we all really looking for?


I think that most people are looking for someone to validate their feelings and validate their beliefs. I think people ask questions about politics and religion so that they can find people who agree with them and feel like their beliefs are warranted.

Im a preschool teacher and i feel that I am not creative. I cant even draw. Is there a course for this that I can study?


You don't have to be ultra creative to teach preschool, you do however need to know how to make use of resources. The Internet is filled with resources that will help make your job as a teacher easier.

Some of my favorite websites for preschool crafts, activities, and song lyrics are: Kid Zone, DLTK Kids, and Kididdles for music.

As for classes that you could take, there are a number of them. There are basic early childhood education classes taught by colleges, but they do not really teach creativity.

One of my favorite places to learn creativity is Lakeshore Learning Centers. It's a store that sells teaching materials, classroom materials, etc. They offer free teaching workshops which are fantastic. The workshops generally have a theme, and they teach you everything from songs to crafts, games, and more. You usually get a certificate at the end, and some colleges will count their free workshops as part of your instructional hours. The classes are an hour long, and they even have giveaways where you can win supplies for your classroom. You can learn more about their workshops at:
http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/general_content/store_locations/teacherWorkshops.jsp

One of the best ways to learn hands down is to sit in on other teacher's classrooms. Talk to other teachers, let a parent helper take a day off, and enjoy seeing how another teacher runs their classroom.

Honestly, a lot of the ideas that I used in my classroom came from children's television programs like Barney the Dinosaur. I actually can't draw worth a lick but I learned the basics from a children's television program called Pappyland.

The key to creativity is to find what you are good at and go with it. Some people love to sing, play a musical instrument, and write song lyrics...I can't carry a tune in a bucket. But the thing about preschoolers is they don't care if you sing out of tune. If music isn't your thing maybe art is and you can show kids how to draw, paint, sketch, and so forth. There is also writing, playing with toys like LEGO, making up stories, playing with puppets, make believe, and so many other things. Find what you love to do and incorporate it into your classroom...that will go farther than all the training in the world.

Where is Jesus when 4-year old children die of cancer?


Right where He's always been. I think it's a blessing when God calls a child home or anyone home who is sick and ill. Cancer is a horrible disease, and a child shouldn't have to suffer with it on Earth. God calls that child home for an eternity of happiness, no more pain, no more tears, no more suffering, and no more cancer. We should all be so lucky!

How do you teach 3 to 4 years old children spelling?


Generally speaking spelling is not taught to three and four year old's. Children have to start with the basics. The start of learning how to spell is learning the alphabet. Believe it or not there are three year old's and even some four year old's who do not know the alphabet.

To teach preschoolers the alphabet, you generally focus on one letter at a time and have the child complete a tracing sheet where they learn to write the letters by copying the outline of the letters. Other ways to teach the alphabet are reciting the alphabet song, ready a book about the alphabet, or making each day represent a letter of the alphabet and teaching subjects, reading books, eating snacks, and making crafts that start with that letter of the alphabet.

The first word a child should learn to spell is his/her own name. A child can learn to spell as they are learning to read, but it does not do much good to teach spelling to a child who cannot start to recognize words, and understand that words are formed when you put letters together.

The focus for three and four year old's should be on learning new words, not on learning how to spell. Three and four year old's generally do not know how to read or spell. These are things that are taught beginning with pre-kindergarten and into kindergarten. You need to teach a child as many words as possible before you teach them to spell.

Once a child knows the alphabet you have to teach them the sound that each letter makes. If a child doesn't recognize the sounds that letters make, they won't be able to spell. This is all part of the pattern in learning to read, spell, and write. When it comes time for spelling, you can have giant cards with each letter on them and put them on the floor. Say something like "Josh find me the letter that makes the "mmm" sound, and wait for Josh to bring the correct letter card to you. Then ask the next child to bring you the letter that makes the "a" sound. Then ask the final child to bring you the letter that makes the "p" sound. Then sound out the words with the child.

Focus more on learning new words, learning to trace and write letters, and learning to write a child's name than on spelling at this age. They are more likely to retain the skills of spelling and reading as they get older.

Words that preschoolers should know:
Basic opposites: Up/Down; Happy/Sad; Hot/Cold; On/Off; Yes/No
Primary colors: Yellow; Red; Blue + Black and White
Days of the week
Months of the year
People in their family: Mom; Dad; Brother; Sister; Grandma; Grandpa; Aunt; Uncle; Baby; Me
Common animals: Dog; Cat; Elephant; Lion; Tiger; Bear; Giraffe
Major holidays: Christmas; Birthday; Easter; Halloween
Single letter words: I and A
Joining words: And; By; and The

Is it normal for a child to cry a lot when they go to daycare?


There is no reason that any parent should have a "suck it up studies are important" attitude when it comes to preschool. While preschool is about learning, it is also about making friends, dealing with separation, and learning how to attend school...something that kids don't learn how to do without practice.

When a child cries at preschool it can mean any number of things:
The child is spoiled and is constantly held by mom, dad, or another family member at home and cannot stand not being held at school

The child does not feel comfortable in the classroom whether because they are uncertain about the teacher, their peers, or the separation from their parents

The child thinks that their parents are abandoning them and will not come back for them, because this is very common thinking for this age group

The child thinks that something is going to happen to them that is bad if mom and/or dad leave because they cannot fathom in their brain dealing with anything without their parents around

When a child cries at preschool, the worst thing that a parent can do is to hang around and cuddle and hold the child. This teaches the child that they can get mom or dad to stay just by crying and every time this scenario is played out, it makes the next separation that much harder. Allowing the child to bring a familiar item from home such as a favorite book, favorite stuffed animal to hold during nap time, or putting a photo of their family in their backpack or lunchbox can help a child get through the day.

In other cases, sometimes when a child cries at preschool it can be a sign of something more serious, like abuse from one of the adults in the preschool. It's important as a parent to volunteer in your child's class from time to time, observe your child's teacher, and report anything strange, unusual, or that makes you uncomfortable immediately. Additionally, you can ask your child about their day at school. Ask them questions that require more than a yes or no answer such as "What did you do at school today" vs "Did you have fun at school today". Ask your child questions like "What didn't you like about school today". Children are brutally honest and if something is going on at your child's school, they are bound to open up about it to you if you know the right questions to ask.

It is morally wrong to hit a child?


Yes it's wrong to hit a child, especially in the setting that you described. You cannot hit a child in a daycare, preschool, or school setting. In fact doing so can get you put in jail, make you lose your teaching license, and/or have to take child abuse classes. You do not have the authority nor the right to lay a disciplined hand on anyone's child but your own. Some would argue you shouldn't hit your own child, but that's something your family can decide and no one else.

Children learn by example. If you lose your temper when the situation gets rocky, they will be quicker to lose their temper. They can also "smell fear" as they say, if you start to panic in a situation, they are going to take full advantage of that situation and your state of panic to continue acting out/trying to get their own way.

Ways to handle young children without hitting:
Time out - don't just stick a child in a corner, but stick them somewhere away from the other kids. The idea is to isolate them so that they will want to behave to rejoin the fun. Ask for a genuine apology when you put the child down for time out, and make it clear that the child cannot participate until they are ready to apologize. The recommended time out length is one minute per age, so a five year old gets a five minute time out. Make sure that distractions like toys, doors, etc are away from the child so that all they can do is sit there

Make them a helper-you would be amazed how many wild children can be tamed by turning them into a helper. If you start to see a child acting out, say something like "Kristin I could really use your help passing out the crayons" or "Josh do you want to pass out the napkins for snack". Many times a child acts out because they don't feel important and assigning them a task makes them feel important
