No matter how hard we wish, that will never change. The teachers and parents of the students pictured in this Ekids are needing to find successful ways to save time at their jobs to spend more one-on-one time with their students and children. Our two stories illustrate a couple of ways time is being saved in our schools. An infant is born with a sense of time knowing night and day, although some have them turned around. Youngsters learn that playtime runs out and bedtime always comes. We teach kids to tell time as soon as they are able. And teens feel the tight boundaries of time. Plan and do something this week that saves you a few minutes, then spend it with a child. The child will smile at you, even if not visibly, and you will feel yourself smile inside.

Making Connections By LynnDe Funk

A teacher can look at the school year in despair, wondering how to possibly cover everything necessary, or they can grab the task by the horns and become very good at integrating subjects. That’s what Kimberly Bartnick , 3rd grade teacher at Chisholm Elementary, has done. She From left: Dakota Kolecek, Levi describes integration as the Hutchison and Elizabeth Black look closely at a tree’s cambien rings to tell “mixing together” of several disciplines. “For instance, if you if it was a dry or wet year (science). are teaching a Social Studies unit on Oklahoma AND you also have to cover alliterations for Language, have the students create alliterations out of Oklahoma symbols. i.e. Renewable, reliable redbuds rustling restlessly in the rain.” “We read a story ‘Cookies – Bite-Size Life Lessons’ and relate that to our behavior, conduct and manners,” she continues. “While at the same time in science, as we are learning about rocks and natural resources, we take cookies, ‘mine for the colored M&M’s,’ and record fractions (math) about the ‘gems’ we have ‘unearthed’ (vocabulary).” The most unusual combination Bartnick has done included a skill she must teach in science, that Sound is vibration and involves different pitch and emotes different feelings. She began by teaching about the brain’s reaction to color (blue emotes calm, red to hunger, yellow to excitement). Then she introduced artwork by Wassily Kandinsky who loved to paint circles and drew his inspiration from sounds. Next, she explained, “I had them divide their paper into four sections. The only directions given were that they could only draw circles, any number and size, but they had to fit in the section we were on. Then I played four very different styles of music: Brahm’s Lullaby, Dynamite, Vivaldi Four Seasons, and Bonanza. They had two minutes of each style of music to draw circles that matched their feelings when they heard the music. The students began drawing, and the circles matched the music. For the classical, students drew big circles with lots of pinks, blues and greens (calming colors). For the upbeat selections, they drew more but smaller circles with colors such as red, yellow, orange and green. Later they took glass bottles and filled them with different levels of colored water. Groups of students experimented with pitch. Each group composed their own song. They “wrote” it with glass bottle images colored to match the colored water and the pitch each bottle produced. A connection was made, and students have drawn on that all year.


One wouldn’t guess that a P.E. teacher would integrate other subjects into her curriculum, but Candace Dally, also at Chisholm Elementary, likes to try new things each year. “A parent gave a bunch of pedometers. So I had the students track their steps during P.E. and see which group made it to OKC first. Competition helps some students desire to participate. Just to let you know, 5th grade won. When they got done traveling, each student graphed (math) their steps recorded each day.” One idea Dally does came from a former teacher. Dally shared, “groups make a life-size skeleton on paper. They bring items from home like straws, aluminum, pasta, marshmallows – whatever they can find to use. Then they label the bones (anatomy).” Bartnick is planning a huge integration project. “One of my skills to teach in social studies is economics,” she said. “I want the students to design a business that might thrive in Oklahoma and figure how supply and demand would affect Some students plan well using words, others with pictures. Above: Kierstyn Wardwell creates a mind map where she draws pictures to plan her life timeline (language). Macy Davis cuts the rough bark edge around her Tree Rings Timeline recording events in order in her life (art). it. They will use math to construct a building and design the inside, language skills and our classroom iPads to create advertisements, menus with prices and brochures for information, and science to describe what raw materials, natural resources and energy usage they will need and what color schemes they will use inside their business (relating back to Kandinsky).“ Bartnick, a Great Expectations Instructor, tells her students, “the brain loves connections.” When a teacher integrates, relates, connects and reviews materials, learning takes place. Students even have an “aha” moment when the connection bulb comes on. That is the only way that information can be transferred from short-term memory to long-term memory.

We Eat It

It Is Red It Has Small Seeds

FROM FACTS TO FIGURING By LynnDe Funk A child comes into our lives and we immediately start to play the “infer” game. The baby cries and Mom concludes it is hungry. The baby fusses and Dad assumes it needs changed. Raising a child before the talking stage is actually great practice for our careers. It forces us to use deductive reasoning, which ultimately saves us time. And teaching our children the other side of deductive reasoning, them using it instead of us, saves us time answering questions and will save them time and help them be more successful throughout their lives. One way to help your child age 3 to 13 learn to use the deductive reasoning part of their brain requires you to multi-task. The next time you are unloading the dishwasher, dressing your preschooler or even waiting for that passing train, play a game that causes your child to figure out the answer rather than just give a memorized answer to a question. Yes, you still need to practice counting, saying the ABCs, reciting the state capital cities and multiplication facts. But by learning “how” to ask a question, you will be preparing them for their working world. Start simple. Play “I see.” It goes like this: I see something brown. The child gets one guess. I can throw it … a guess. It is soft … my teddy bear? Yes, very good. Change it up to “I’m thinking of …” I’m thinking of something to eat … one guess. It is red … another guess. It has small seeds … a strawberry? Yes, now it is your turn. Variations may include summer activities, famous people and even future careers. This is what TV game shows are designed after and are what prepares kids to be doctors, teachers and parents themselves. The next time you are in a hurry and the train crossing guards come down, instead of teaching your child what road rage is, save yourself and them hours in the future by challenging them to be an analytical thinker.
