Personally, I think it’s a good thing that cursive was phased out. Replacing it with a more practical skill like typing makes a lot of sense.
However, this opens up the argument that many things taught in school are not exactly practical and could be eliminated with the ubiquity of modern technologies. Why learn basic math when we have calculators? For that matter, why learn anything when we can Google everything? It’s a slippery slope to eliminate every skill that doesn’t fall into the practical category, and I think there is something to be said for learning for the sake of learning.
That being said, many people feel like much of a child’s current curriculum will not prepare them for “real life.” There are only so many hours in a school day, so is there more value in learning how to do your own taxes versus advanced calculus? Overall, I think it’s important to have a good balance of practicality and creativity in education.
In 2010, the Common Core Standards Initiative removed the requirement that cursive be taught in public elementary schools. It made sense given the rise in computer usage and a greater emphasis placed on keyboarding in the school curriculum. However, several states have since reinstated the cursive requirement, thanks to lobbyists and lawmakers who advocate for the importance of the skill. So yes, some schools do still teach cursive writing.
WikiAnswers will not write an essay for you to copy, but we will help you to write your own assignment.
If your teacher has given you a specific topic, the first thing you should do is make a list of everything you know about that topic. Do some research if you need to!
If you are writing about a person, list facts about their life. If you are writing about a place or thing, list facts that you have looked up.
If your topic is more general, like "The Flag" or "Friendship," write down anything that comes into your mind when you think of that thing. If you are writing about an event, like "My Vacation" or "A Trip to the Airport," list everything that happened.
If your teacher has given you a phrase or proverb as a topic (like "Give Love, Get Love" or "A Stitch in Time Saves Nine") then you first must be sure you understand what the phrase means! Use a search engine like google.com or dogpile.com if you need to. Then list everything that you think of when you think of that phrase.

The educational option:
If a class is really boring and you still want to learn, read ahead in the textbook and take some notes. Draw pictures in your notebook about what the teacher is saying, or make up a crossword puzzle or word search using the vocabulary words in the lesson. So long as you are sitting quietly in your place and appear to be paying attention, most teachers will ignore the fact that you're not really "all there."
NOW if both the teacher and the lesson are boring, you have no choice but to resort to one of the options below (submitted by contributors):
Note-Some of these are ONLY PROVIDED FOR AMUSEMENT (and if attempted may lead to discipline)
Or draw a picture
If you're really daring, pull out your phone (if you have one) during class and try to go online
If you are bored you have too much time on your hands. Perhaps it's the weekend, or the summer.
I don't think that there ever comes a time in life when you have nothing to do. There is always something you can be doing!
Don't be afraid to use your imagination and you are never too old to do any of these activities - there is always something to do.
Since boredom comes from inside you and not from out in the world, get up and go discover the world.
There are many things to see and do outside your door. Go find them. Since everyone is different when boredom hits, they solve that problem by engaging in their favorite hobbies or activities. If you don't know what you absolutely enjoy doing yet, you could experiment with a few time consuming activities that will spike your interest.
Don't like that? Write 25 questions down that come to mind. Not silly things, but real questions and then go look for the answers. Many great men did this all of their lives and inventions, art, and other things have come from them because of it. Da Vinci is one such man who wrote questions to himself all of his life and he did many great things.
I hate being bored, but then I tried doing some of these activities. It really helps! If it doesn't help, at least you tried something!
Please refrain from all illegal activities

how to write a request letter to the principal of a school about the admission of my son to the primary school.
Well, it depends what the fraction is so mainly the situation is for example if the fraction is 45/34 that wouldn't work because the numerater is larger than the denomenater. I hope this helps you out some!

Two or three years is a good interval. But, just don't try to have another baby thinking that it will bring you and your husband closer together. Only have another baby if both you and your husband really want another one. Let your husband feel that he can be truthful. Don't make him feel that he has to say 'Yes' just to keep from having a fight with you, or because that is what he thinks that you want him to say. If both of you don't truly feel that you are ready and prepared, you will likely just have problems.
I don't know that there is any specific, scientific, absolutely correct answer, but I can say this. I have known, in my mind, that I wanted a second child since I had my first. I do recognize that my husband and I need to be prepared in our lives for that commitment, but the actual decision is much more emotional, more of a gut feeling, so to speak. I do believe that a women knows if she should bear a child and when, that our bodies are made to cue us in that way. Again, discuss it with and have the support of your significant other, but, other than that, trust your instinct and remember that things should be much easier the second time around. You have experience!
From a health standpoint, it is dangerous to turn around a month or so after the first and conceive again. From a developmental standpoint, kids born farther apart aren't as close, or the older has adjustment issues and the younger can be more clingy.
But really, it's all about personal decision. When you are ready, you know.
In some parts of the world it is believed there should be a gap of three years between children. Not that I would ever want another one, but physically and mentally I only felt like my old self after exactly 3 years.
I had my second child 27 months after the first. So my two are roughly two years apart. I knew that I was ready for another. I would watch my child and she looked so lonely when at home. Sure she had dozens of friends to play with, but when a home, she would play sadly by herself. She wasn't the only one who wanted the presence of a new one in the house.
Some women use to tell me that your body would tell you that you are ready for another. I didn't believe it until I was ready to have another! Having a baby was all that I thought about, I would dream about babies, I would go through the baby section of a department store and browse through the clothes. I started behaving like a woman that was prepping for a child eg: mass home improvements, relentless cleaning, etc. The old wives call this "nesting". When I was ready, I discussed it with my husband, and the rest is family history. Now my family is complete. I have a girl and a boy.
But of course if the time comes when you want another, you will know too. No one can really tell a person what is best for them. But your present living and economic situation must be taken into consideration before expanding more. Ex. Your house size and family income. Another tip: KEEP ALL BABY CLOTHES FROM YOUR FIRST CHILD! This helps tremendously. And if you don't mind "hand-me-downs", purchase big lots of baby clothes on Ebay.
Primarily because it is incredibly rude unless you are called upon.
1. You get yelled at.

Your local schools should have tests that your child can take to see if he or she is academically ready. However, many children are academically ready, but not emotionally or socially ready. You can talk to a counselor or a friend about your child's social skills too, but trust your instincts. You know your child better than anyone and if you don't think that she is emotionally or socially ready she probably isn't. Another good thing to do is to look at your child's birth date. If he or she is going to be the youngest in the class, it may be better to wait a year. Sometimes waiting that extra year is all a child needs to be more confident about school.
I lived at 248 Cornelia St. right across from the school and I know that when my father went to it as a kid it was supossed to be torndown and my father would have been 82 this past month. I remember that when the weather was cold we had recess in the dungeon like basement and when it was warm we went out to the school yard. I think that the building was made of red sandstone. Every Tuesday and Thursday were assembly days and we had to wear a white top, red scarf or tie and navy pants or skirts. If you or Melissa want to know more let me know.Answer
I attended P.S. 106 from the 4th grade through the sixth grade. However, in the 1947-48 school year my class did the 5th and 6th grade in one year which resulted in my starting the 7th grade at age 11.
I remember the courtyard but most of all, I remember the attic. Our teacher, Miss Helen Rutledge would take us up there on rainy or snowy days and we would have "music appreciation".
The walls were lined with pictures of musical instruments and in one corner of the room was a large victrola (that's right - victrola). Miss Rutledge would play various pieces of classical music and ask us to listen and identify what instruments were being played. Some of the songs I remember are Barcarole, Humoresque (by Dvorak), Swan Lake, Night on Bald Mountain, Moonlight Sonata - and more. I owe my appreciation of classical music to that lady and to that experience since I had never heard classical music at home.
I also remember many of my classmates names - Rosemary Schultz (my first girlfriend), Benedict Martino, Duane Bosling, Etta Koeing, Frances McGowan. Hey, as I look back on it, it was one of the best and most fruitful learning periods of my life.

15 is the answer. Product is what you get when you multiply two or more numbers together. In this case, the factors are 3 and 5.
3 x 5 = 15 (product)
If there are more than one factors, the order in which they are multiplied has no effect on the product. This is the Commutative Law of Multiplication.
There are several things to do in class, but how can you get bored? With a teacher teaching, with a goofball in your class, with a girl that is a tomboy doing spitballs at the teacher without her knowing is wide entertainment, unfortunately, not all of us have that. A great thing to do in class is pay attention and learn, that's the point of school you know.
Yes, school IS boring sometimes. But you should still listen to the teacher and do your work. In life, sometimes you are just going to have to suck it up. And if you pay attention in class it will REALLY help you out in real life. If your looking for something to do during recess, you can play with the sports equipment, and maybe even make up your own game. Or you can stay inside (if allowed) and go to the computer lab, library, or any other area your allowed to be in during recess. Or you can just chill with your friends.
So we suggest that in class you:
Otherwise, there are some devious ideas. However, these are ones apt to get you in big, big trouble!
Oprah Gail Winfrey did skip kindergarten and second grade because of her knowledge.
I took other people's advice and am answering random questions!
When I'm bored I cook something or make something. I sing a song or have a shower and hide somewhere for hours till mum comes and finds me.
I go on face book, but if you don't have one, then i suggest you make one; if my mom is on the computer then I normally play wii sports or Rock Band 2. One thing I really like doing is listening to my ipod and dancing around my room or my whole house (but I normally get yelled at for shaking the floor when ever i jump up and down). Well, it's a very good exercise and its fun too. If you don't have a face book or a wii or an ipod then you can do yoga.
Read a book. If you don't have one, the library is full of a thousand types of books, and you can borrow them for free. They have everything from fashion design, lives of kings and queens, famous people, rich people, ordinary people, consumer information, romance stories, fact or fiction, adventure stories, fact or fiction, murder mysteries, fact or fiction, history of dance, history of guns, history of the circus, history of everything or anything. I'm sure that they have books about something that you're interested in. Next time your out and about, stop by an pick up a couple and then you'll have something ready when the computer isn't available or you're bored with it.
Why not try writing a journal, story or poem.
Well, there is loads of things to do from staying and playing on your computer to going outside and take a walk.
I got some things from a website. Here they are.
1. Look up urban legends, and/or ghost stories in your town. Investigate!

Here are somethings now that I like to do.
Attend your classes and avoid running with scissors As a middle school student, who has been through it all, here is some real help.(Please! Running with scissors?!) 1. Socialize with as many people as you can, because then they'll get to know you better, and won't be xenophobic kids that label you as a nerd, or self-conceited person. Not only that but the people who bully you no matter what, you can easily deal with because of your numerous amount of friends. 2.Talk your problems out with your loved ones. It helps to take them off your chest. Like for when you've had a terrible tortorous day. In the words of Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, "What doesn't kill you will make you stronger." Any more advice just go on my web page. Answer Stay away from the gossip! The more you get into it, the more fights, cries, screams, etc. goes on. If someone tells you a rumor, stay out of it. You can lose best friends if you don't and the more tention going on in your head, the less focus you put into your school work because all you can think about is rumors. Soon you'll be flunking, dropping out of school, and living on the street.
