Strange as it sounds, one great thing is to have something funny go wrong w a wedding. It makes for the kind of story people love over the decades. We were married by a state supreme court justice of the state in which we then lived — who arrived tipsy! He began our wedding early, and finished our ceremony five minutes before it was due to begin. If we had not kissed twice two of our guests who arrived a bit late woukd have missed everything.
Have to smile. I was cooking dinner for my family many nights at about that age. Granted, that was a bit early, but it was doable. Seeing Michael having responsibilities is a good thing.
I have no idea about generic M&Ms but at the local A&P we have found several generic items that are as good as the name brands, as well as pretzels and cheese crackers that are tastier than the name brands.
Ah, reminders both of the song and of the show, Cleopatra 2525.
Why do i assume that Halliburten will make a profit from this approach?
I think that people are exactly right when they point out that too many grade school teachers are way too afraid of math, and since they never understood it they can not teach it. In my grade school we had a floating teacher for science classes just as we did for art, music, shop, home ec, and gym. Frankly, we would have greatly benefited if math had been taught that way, too. The only grade school teachers i had who grasped math well were my fifth and sixth grade teachers, Mrs. Darling and Mrs. Trull, especially the latter, and both used images successfully to explain what our earlier teachers had approached as black box mysteries to be memorized. I would live to see kids get more science and math in school, and think all high school students should study probability, and also critical analysis. Along the lines if what is disappearing, why do so few children learn basic grammar these days?
Anyone else remember the text Form and Function?
When kids have trouble getting math when using just numbers two approaches that can help are to:1. Get to the breakthrough by using words instead of numbers to explain the concepts.2. Use an illustration. For example, using graph paper is a great way to get across multiplication. Even little kids see it that way.Since i have a lack of depth persception and mild dyslexia (flipping and skipping, especially w anything that has a loop and a tail, things that flip often for me, including 9 and 6, p,q, b, and g) geometry was especially hard for me. On the other hand, even though i needed lots of practise i found that i truly loved probability. Sometimes a person will hate one type of math but love another, like enjoying certain types of literature but hating others.
