In today’s world, schools can become places of terror. Students are bullied in the hallways and classrooms, harassed on social media, and degraded by adults who have power over them. Many students feel unsafe because they do not know when or where an attack will happen next.
This is why we need to work together to create a more supportive environment for all students. We need systemic change that starts with us as individuals: teachers, parents, administrators, community members…everyone! It starts with each one of us taking responsibility for how we speak about others or how we react when someone else speaks negatively about another person. The best way to support our youth is to practice empathy-the ability to understand what others are feeling without being judgmental

“What are you noticing and wondering about right now?” This is a question that I often ask my clients. It’s an invitation to explore the present moment, to be curious about what we’re sensing and feeling in this very instant. This practice can help us become more aware of our thoughts, feelings, surroundings, or anything else that might be happening for us at any given time. The questions “what” (or “why”) invites our mind to go deeper into something it notices with curiosity and wonderment: What do you notice? Why do you wonder?
The Common Core State Standards are a set of academic standards for English Language Arts and Math that have been adopted by 45 states.
There are many benefits to these new standards, but one of the benefits is division strategy. Division strategies can be used in math or science and students need to know which strategy should be applied when solving problems involving division. These three common core strategies for division will help your child better understand how to divide numbers on their own.
The first strategy is called partitioning, where you cut the number being divided into equal pieces with a number line or bar graph so that each piece has the same value as the original number being divided (e.g., dividing 12 by 3) The second strategy is called creating equivalent fractions,
