5 Ways to Help a Student Who is Strugging in Math

Posted by Droolees Ed Team on

  1. Math Attitude In order to improve with math, the right attitude is the first place to start. Many students think they are simply "bad at math" (sometimes even because a parent has stated that they were always "bad at math" in school themselves). If they think of one's skill at mathematics as a fixed, unchangeable thing, they aren't going to put much effort into improving it.  A good analogy for math skills is that of learning a sport. Some children are naturally athletic and take to the skills quickly, while others are slower and need more practice. All,...

Rerun and Research

Posted by Droolees Ed Team on

  Screens everywhere. Small screens, big screens, flat or round, they are there. Easy access to anything imaginable. That can be problem though. Our brains are bombarded with information and misinformation. Misinterpretations, debates, racism, and of course politics, often appear on our media feed, sometimes causing us to plunge into sadness and dissatisfaction. It is inevitable to come across anything that is false. Gossip spreads like wildfire and so do articles with false information.

  You are quietly doing your shopping at your favorite store and all of a sudden you are startled by screaming and crying. You try to find where the scream is coming from because it is quite loud and it has disrupted your peace. No one is hurt, so what is the reason for such ruckus?

A Helping Hand

Posted by Droolees Ed Team on

       Who doesn’t like it when someone offers their help? When someone offers their help, I’m beyond grateful for their willingness to be a helping hand. I have had students who were always offering their help and I would often find them doing things that needed to be done without being asked. I met some of the parents of such students and I can say that the young student’s were reflections of their parents. Their parents were kind and offered their time and help if the school needed it. Their work ethic was often seen in their children...
