Go From a Struggling To a Striving Reader

Melissa Roy

For those of you out there whose children are having some trouble with their readings, here are some reading strategies which you can implement into your reading time with your infant.

First off, make sure that your kid is properly fed and rested before reading, since he will need to give his brains an intense workout... doing otherwise will ensure that your child will get frustrated and ultimately fail. The thing is about children, some won't tell you when they're tired or hungry, and so as a parent you shouldn't misinterpret that as a lack of interest for reading and tend to the infant's primary needs.

Second, make sure to be well-fed and well-rested yourself. If you're not, you won't be enjoying the reading, and the child will right away imitate his parent's attitude, and become frustrated with the readings. So every time now before teaching, I recommend you have a snack and a short nap, that will accelerate your kid's learning process as well as well as make both of you happier.

Third of all, get rid of any distractions, as they will not let your infant concentrate. Children are very easily distracted by anything around them, so make sure to create an environment where the only things going on are you teaching your child how to read... this might mean making the most boring room of the house into a study.

Fourthly, choose a comfortable space to study. Don't use chairs or desks... most kids are energetic and all wiggly, and thus will learn better if they read while lying on the sofa or the floor.

Last tip, don't overload the child. If he's showing signs of not being able to take anymore, don't force it, take a break, regain some energy, and come back later to finish the lesson. There is absolutely no point into forcing knowledge into a head functioning at zero capacity.

If you follow through with these steps, you will have the foundation to turn any struggling readers into striving ones.

Exploring the Life of Qin Shi Huang

Garik Tate

Qin Shi Huang was the first and probably one of the greatest of all the emperors of china. His personal name was Ying Zheng. He was also sometimes called Qin Shi Huangdi. Though both are correct the more proper name was Huangdi over Huang. Now that we have filled your mind with useless info about his hard to pronounce name lets talk about the guy himself.

There is a lot of controversy over how Qin Shi Huang was born. However the story goes as follows. One of the sons of the king of Qin. Yiren was put on the throne by his friend Lu Buwei. Lu Buwei was a powerful and rich merchant who believed Yiren had the potential to become the next ruler of Qin and with his help he did. But before Yiren was king he was introduced to Lu Buwei's concubine and she bore him a son who grew up to be Qin Shi Huang. However the controversy is that Qin Shi Huang might actually be Lue Buwei's son as it is believed that she was already pregnant.

Whatever the story is Yiren (known as Zhaoxiang of Qin at the time) died and left Qin to his son Qin Shi Huang (known as Ying Zheng at the time). However has Qin Shi Huang was only 13 at the time Lu Buewei held actual power until Qin Shi Huang was old enough to rule. Lu Buewei had certain secrets that he wanted to keep from Qin Shi Huang and looked for a replacement king. However this replacement king couldn't keep quiet before their plan was put into action and was drunk bragging.

Shortly afterward a small civil war began in which case the replacement king (Lao Ai) was torn apart. His entire family was put to death. Lu Buwei took poison and died. While Qin Shi Huang's mother who was also in the plot was placed under house arrest until she died.

With incredible military genius Qin Shi Huang conquered all of china. The last country to fall was Qi which sent all of its military might to the west (an army of over 300,000). But Qin Shi Huang merely attacked from the north and seized it. With all of china under a single king Qin Shi Huang declared himself emperor as he was greater than any king.

Once he had conquered he began several construction projects including the great wall of china and the terracotta army. He also standardized the weighting system and the measuring system as well as currency.

The barbarians to the north were very resolute and the armies sent to battle them were unable to break their spirit. To stop the northern tribes slow encroachment the great wall of china was constructed. Most of the construction was simply to connect the already existing walls on the northern border.

The lesser known of the two great building projects that Qin Shi Huang did (if you don't count the roads he made) is known as the Lingqu Canal. Designed to make it easier to transport resources to the army. Connected to large rivers and there for two large supply lines.

However despite the great things he did Qin Shi Huang also started the great book burning. Any book that was not written by his scholars other than prophecy agriculture and medicine were burned. Also hundreds of scholars were put to death.

While ruling he became obsessed with immortality. He also greatly feared evil spirits. He even had a massive system of tunnels built between all 200 of his palaces so that he could go through them without being plagued by spirits. A year before he died a meteor fell with the words carved in it saying that he would day and china would crumble shortly afterward all the neighboring villages were put to death and the meteor was destroyed.

Hey died eating mercury pills which were supposed to give him immortality. The fact that he had died was hidden quite a while. His clothes were changed regularly dead fish were put next to his carriage to hide the stench and his face was always put in the shade.

His tomb is protected by an army of terracotta soldiers nearly 10'000 strong. The tomb itself was said to have rivers of mercury and there have been found mercury in the area around 100 times stronger than it should be. The tomb supposedly has replicas of towers and palaces. The tomb has never been opened and there is great debate about what is inside it. There is supposed to be countless traps inside as well.
