Failure Leads to Success (or More Failure)

No matter how hard I try, I cannot make my fifth grade students think like sophomores in high school. I need to remember that my students don't know unless they are taught. I want them to be able to understand what I say without having any experiences for them to draw from.

Regardless of the tools I give them, without practice they won't be able to use them. More practice, more practice, more practice.
