Caldas, Stephen J.; Reilly, Monique S. – Journal of Research in Childhood Education, 2019
Using structural equation modeling, this study found that prior reading skill was significantly associated with children's reported physical activity levels, which was in turn significantly associated with English language arts (ELA) and math achievement, among 526 3rd-grade students. The New York City Metropolitan area students completed the…

Rodriguez, Shelly; Morrison, Alex; Benfield, Patrick – Science and Children, 2019
This article describes a lesson rooted in "tinkering," an approach to learning that encourages the use of authentic, hands-on experience to develop an understanding of content and physical materials. There were several desired outcomes for this lesson. First, the authors felt that tinkering was an appropriate approach to investigating…

Hammerschmidt-Snidarich, Stephanie M.; Maki, Kathrin E.; Adams, Sarah R. – Psychology in the Schools, 2019
Repeated reading (RR) is a common fluency intervention, but recent studies comparing RR to continuous reading (CR; i.e., wide reading) found no significant differences in effects. This prompts the question of whether the mechanism that improves skills is repeatedly reading portions of connected text, or simply reading connected text. The current…

Baumfalk, Ben; Bhattacharya, Devarati; Vo, Tina; Forbes, Cory; Zangori, Laura; Schwarz, Christina – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2019
Developing scientific literacy about water systems is critical for K-12 students. However, even with opportunities to build knowledge about the hydrosphere in elementary classrooms, early learners may struggle to understand the water cycle (Forbes et al., [Forbes, C. T., 2015]; Gunckel et al., [Gunckel, K. L., 2012]; Zangori et al., [Forbes, C.…

Bahatheg, Raja Omar – International Education Studies, 2019
This study aims to analyze and compare school subjects to determine the extent to which critical thinking skills are being engaged in school subjects' questions and activities in public education. Five Arab countries are included in this paper; Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Arab Republic of Egypt, and The Tunisian…

Cooper, Jason – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2019
Teachers and mathematicians hold different perspectives on the teaching and learning of whole number arithmetic. Though these perspectives may be complementary, sharing them across communities is challenging. An unusual professional development course for primary school teachers, initiated and taught by research mathematicians, provided a setting…

Weiss, Stacy L.; Brinkley, Jason; Bock, Josh – Education and Treatment of Children, 2019
Written expression curriculum-based measurement is a quick and effective way to screen for writing difficulties and evaluate student progress during an intervention. In this study the scores of third and fourth grade students in the fall, winter, and spring were analyzed as related to grade level, gender, special education participation, and…

Houdement, Catherine; Tempier, Frédérick – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2019
Numeration units (ones, tens, hundreds, etc.) are an epistemological foundation for place value. Here, we assume that they are a didactic support in countries where spoken numbers are incongruent with written numbers. In France, teaching practices neglect the relations between units, and numeration units are typically used only to designate the…

Erdem, Ali Riza; Adiguzel, Duygu Cag – Eurasian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Purpose: This study aimed to identify the views of primary school teachers on their creative thinking skills. The following research questions were addressed based on the aim of the study: (1) What are the primary school teachers' views on their critical thinking skills? (2) Do primary school teachers' views on their creative thinking skills…

Schiefer, Julia; Golle, Jessika; Tibus, Maike; Oschatz, Kerstin – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2019
Scientific reasoning abilities are already developing in elementary-school-aged children and enable them to understand the world around them. The goal of the current study was to develop a new instrument for 8- to 10-year-old children in Grades 3 and 4 to measure their understanding of the steps of the "scientific inquiry cycle" (SIC).…

Barnett, Eli; Ding, Meixia – Investigations in Mathematics Learning, 2019
In this study we investigate the teaching of the associative property in a natural classroom setting through observation of classroom video of several elementary math classes in a large urban school district. Findings indicate that the associative property was often conflated with the commutative property during teaching. The role of the…

Butler, Aaron; Poquette, Hannah – Kentucky Department of Education, 2019
The purpose of this study is to investigate the progress being made to close the current achievement gap in Kentucky. Guiding the study is the following research question: Which districts are closing racial and socioeconomic achievement gaps at rates that exceed expectations? The authors assess districts' progress in closing racial and…

Figlio, David N.; Özek, Umut – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2019
In this study, we use microdata from 12 Florida county-level school districts and a regression discontinuity design to examine the effects of early grade retention on the short-, medium-, and long-term outcomes of English learners. We find that retention in the third-grade substantially improves the English skills of these students, reducing the…

Casa, Tutita M.; MacSwan, Juliana R.; LaMonica, Kara E.; Colonnese, Madelyn W.; Firmender, Janine M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Curriculum guidelines and professional organizations' recommendations lack details about how often and how much students should write in mathematics and what characteristics should define their writing. This study presents an analytic framework that addresses how often students are prompted in student mathematics books to write, how much they may…
