Unhealthy problems is an effect of kids doing too much homework for too long, students have to complete all of their homework in just a limited amount of time, and less time for family and extracurricular activities and family and friends is created because of homework. If homework continues to increase through the years, students will go through a midlife crisis! They will not be able to handle all of the pressure and who knows what the students will do with all of this homework on their backs. Remember back to Michael. He was stressed out from all of the homework he had received from school, though, he went to school excited.
It was helpful but very frustrating because the lessons were too easy. That is not the point thought, the point is, that my mom made me skip a year of math knowing that I could not handle it. I had been struggling for a while and she just came in and claimed I was gifted when I am not. The years of struggle after moving were rough, and leaves a bad taste in my mouth when I think of math, I
My math journey has been a difficult road, but it has certainly been a journey of growth. I don’t remember much from my younger days, but when I was in kindergarten I was decent at math. I had a teacher that worked with every student, but the downside was that I was only enrolled in a half-day program. I can remember starting to struggle with math in the first grade. We would have timed tests, which stressed me out even at 6 years old.
English class made me feel empty-headed and lost. I never knew what was going on, and I also began not to care; However, when I was placed into Ms. Hightower 's class, everything changed! She gave me confidence in myself, my abilities, and helped me uncover intelligence I never knew I had. My freshman year of high school created my hate for English. My freshman class full of 15-year old 's were forced to read and write essays about the constitution and politics we knew and understood nothing about: It was the most tedious and doltish idea in the world.
How could I not have realized this before? Am I dumb or something? My pre-algebra teacher, Ms. McCommons, was flouncing and hollering around the dimly-lit classroom as she always did when teaching us math; she was really enthusiastic about the subject. However, her animated gestures failed to get my attention as thoughts of my dad were flooding my mind instead. Thankfully, this was my last class, so afterwards I could just head home, relax, and forget about all I had realized that day.
Dont sit up in chairs It was a time when I realized that i shouldn 't sit up in chairs ever.It was a quiet day y in belle river Mrs Penziens room is quiet i thought to myself that was crazy because we were the loudest class ever in fourth grade.Mrs leigh was our substitute for the day because Mrs Penzien was sick i couldn 't wait until lunch and recess because Icould see my friend gracie outside . she was in a different class .It seems like Mrs leigh was always in our classroom. Mrs leigh was teaching math and a little bit of cursive at the same time Ihad looked on the clock and notice that it was almost at 12:00 but it was only like 9:00 lunch is at 12:00 so that is more like 3 hours until lunch yeah. Math is my favorite subject in school that was the class I was the most good at other subjects I really don 't like as much as math. I had thought it was gonna be a good day but it turned bad around 10:00.
I, first, met frustration in 10th grade when I scored D in first essay in my life and it was when I first realized I needed to try harder than what I did in the past. By recommend from my counselor, I decided to take first regular English class in 10th grade; I still got help from ELD class but having regular English class with my 2 years of English knowledge, it was very challenging. Nevertheless, there’s no “give up” in my vocabulary. During class, I could maintain same pace with my classmates by helped from my pink electronic dictionary and at home, I frequently stayed up late to preview the lecture for tomorrow or studying English. As a result, I finished English 10 with A, and the status between my classmates and I totally changed.
She told me to try to make it to lunch, and that I was probably just hungry. She was tired of me skipping school. So I waited and waited until lunch came. The whole time I sat in class holding my stomach with my head down. I begged my teacher to let me use the phone, but she was told that I wasn’t allowed.
Thoughts about how many more minutes I have left to slumber until the piercing sound of the alarm clock awakens me flood my mind. My daily math journey begins. I never truly realized how much math I use on daily until I was forced to confront it. As I have come to realize, mathematics is so much more than what time it is or how many minutes I have until my twelve year old daughter must leave the house so she isn’t late for the bus. The daily count down has become routine.
As a young teacher, I reflect back on my 2 prior years of teaching and surprise myself with how much I have grown as a teacher over the years. I can say that I felt like my whole first year of teaching was a “hazy” whirlwind. Yet looking back, I believe some of my “hazy” lessons came during my math block from teaching Kindergarten last year. Last year I used the math curriculum Everyday Math. Starting the year I felt very overwhelmed with the curriculum and seeked advice from a senior teacher, but still lacked understanding for myself.
