Mi lista de navidad – Impresión gratis – My Christmas wish list – Free printable

Hola amigos,

lista-de-navidad

Esta lista de navidad es sencilla, pero fomenta la idea en los niños de clasificar los regalos en 4 categorías: Yo quisiera tener, Yo necesito, Me gustaría leer y yo quisiera usar.

En las líneas de abajo ellos pueden escribir lo que desean y esa lista es de gran ayuda para la familia por que así sabemos que podemos regalarles. ¡En casa y en la escuela ya los niños han comenzado a escribir sus cartas!

Why bilingual skills and multicultural education are important and how can they influence the future of our kids?

kids_worldIn today’s world, people’s values revolve around education, which is known as an efficient door opener for many excellent opportunities. Being a bilingual individual with a multicultural education is of utmost importance, particularly because these capacities can allow individuals to join the extensive job marketplace and set up successful careers, as well.

However, people might experience confusion when referring to bilingual capacities and multicultural education. What are, for sure, the advantages and how can this help our children strive for a better career in the nearby future?

In the first place, being a bilingual involves speaking two distinct languages: your mother language, and a foreign one, which comes from a different region of the world. However, speaking a language involves immersing yourself in the cultures and traditions of that particular country, unavoidably acquiring a better education. At this time, most employers are seeking individuals who can speak more than two languages, offering high-paying jobs that ensure them of an excellent monthly income.

Furthermore, whether we talk about the job of a simple employer or a CEO, individuals can receive new opportunities when their education is beyond regular limits, enabling them to be promoted to higher levels.

multicultural 3Being a bilingual is ideal due to the fact that you will need good communication skills when talking to a potential client, let’s say, from China, who can speak only in his mother language, Chinese. An individual who is able to understand the language will be able to establish efficient communication with the client, leading not only to appreciation, but also to new perspectives that can change their lives’ forever, promising a better future.

In addition, multicultural education enables individuals to improve the communication and understanding between them and people who come from other countries of the world. Once you are aware of their traditions, you will know how to act properly in order to attain your goals. Multicultural education can influence kids’ future at a great deal due to the fact that they are basically able to familiarize with other cultures, understand them and use their knowledge in order to lay the foundation of a promising career.

From the very first moments, those children with enhanced education can be selected to take part in several programs, and students might be offered the possibility of studying abroad, where the rules are different and their opportunities – more numerous. Being properly educated can allow kids to focus on their beliefs and develop important aspects of their personality.

multicultural 1

Multicultural educations enables them to pick their own religion, principles and way of life, and concentrate on particular fields they might be interested in, such as information technology, business, entrepreneurship, and so on. Moreover, multicultural education can open new doors, as they will learn the basics of a successful career and other aspects pertaining to it.

Before thinking about anything else, you should definitely consider becoming a bilingual and providing multicultural education to your child in order to offer him the benefits we mentioned above. Doing proper research can help you gain a better understanding of the complexities involved in this matter, so it is better to equip yourself with patience and proper knowledge regarding how to help your kids prosper.

Spanish Coloring Pages

elcuerpo humanoColoring pages constitute an excellent opportunity for all parents and teachers who want to help children learn Spanish language fast and accurately. There are sixteen categories children can choose from, including Body, Bugs, Toys, Backyard, Face, Halloween, Farm Animals, Pizza, Happy Easter, Christmas and many others. Once they select a category, children will be automatically redirected to a page where they will be able to see various elements that belong to the category in question – for example, if they select “Bugs” category, they will see various printable A4 pages with a beetle, ladybug, butterfly and other insects.
Each A4 page includes an image of the element in question, along with its English name and other three texts: the Spanish name of the element, the letters it is composed from and the syllables that form it. For example, a page presents a picture of a butterfly (which is its English name), along with its Spanish name (la mariposa), its letters (m-a-r-i-p-o-s-a) and its syllables (ma-ri-po-sa). Below these three texts, there is the English name of the element – in this case, “butterfly”.

paginas para colorear 2After selecting a category and a page, children can press the big print icon on the right side in order to print and start coloring it. By going back to the main page, children can select another category by clicking on one of the sixteen icons located under “Páginas para Colorear – Coloring Pages“.
Since these coloring pages come with so many features and benefits, all children can easily learn Spanish language while having fun. After they have supposedly learn the letters of the Spanish alphabet through all the interactive activities of El Alfabeto game, children can familiarize with them and their presence in various words that use them. This will allow them to enrich their vocabulary significantly, so that they will be able to form properly-structured sentences when their Spanish language skills will advance.
Moreover, kids can successfully learn how to read the name of each element correctly, and, apart from that, they will be able to read each syllable and improve their pronunciation substantially. By reading each word entirely, syllable by syllable and letter by letter by letter, learning Spanish will become simpler than ever.Even though some words that might more difficult than others, this will offer children a better understanding of Spanish language, as they will be able to observe that each letter is pronounced differently depending upon the word it is included within.

lacaraWhat is more, printing and coloring these pages can help children learn and memorize each word accurately, engaging them in an activity they will definitely enjoy. Children can learn everything better when the environment is friendly and they are fascinated by a thing or another, so they will not have to go through boring lessons that do not allow them to learn properly. Coloring is a pleasurable activity, and children will have the chance to practice their language skills through the correct pronunciation of the words, their syllables and letters.

 

Consequently, the relationship between children and their parents or teachers can improve very much, and these coloring pages can be printed as many times as desired, without a limit.

Tareas y habilidades de estudio – Homework and Study skills

by Jeanne Kraus – Reading / Curriculum Specialist – Margate Elementary School.

studio2

1 . Escriba todas las tareas en un cuaderno, y escriba cuando es el último día que tiene su hijo para entregarlas . Use un calendario para planificar los proyectos que les son puestos en cada asignatura.

2 . Use notas autoadhesivas para marcar los libros que necesita para hacer la tarea. Esto le ayudará a recordar que libros necesita retornar a casa.

3 . Archivo de documentos. Incluya un área en cada carpeta en la que pueda saber cuales son las asignaciones terminadas y cuales las asignaciones sin terminar.

4 . Haga listas de… “Para hacer”. Haga una lista para cada asignatura, así su hijo podrá cruzar una línea sobre la actividad que ya haya realizado.

5 . Prepare la maleta en la noche y déjela cerca de la puerta de salida.

6 . Divida los proyectos largos en partes pequeñas. Escriba estos proyectos en el calendario .

7 . Establezca un lugar de estudio, tranquilo y bien iluminado. Cuelgue un letrero que diga “No molestar” No visitantes, no llamadas.

8 . Elija un lugar cómodo para su hijo. Algunos niños trabajan mejor en su habitación, mientras que otros se distraen demasiado.

9 . El área de trabajo debe estar siempre ordenada. Los útiles escolares deben estar bien surtidos en una caja con lápices, reglas, papel, sacapuntas , diccionario , etc.

10 . Anime a su hijo a estudiar en el mismo lugar todos los días.

11 . Estudie cuando el niño este más alerta. Lo mejor es estudiar a la misma hora todos los días. Ajuste su horario todos los días.

12 . Estudie los temas más difíciles primero.

13 . Establezca el tiempo necesario de trabajo para cada asignatura así su hijo no tendrá que precipitarse en cada una de las asignaciones. Su hijo puede leer también en el tiempo libre(Grados 1-3, 10-30 minutos por día ; Grados 4-6 , 30-60 minutos por día)

14 . Está bien escuchar música clásica tranquila. Algunos niños encuentran que esta música les ayuda a concentrarse. El televisor debe estar apagado.

Es importante organizar otras partes de la vida también. Esto le ayudará con el trabajo escolar. Por ejemplo, asegúrese de que su hijo tenga lugares específicos para mantener sus cosas. Limite el tiempo de ver la televisión, ayudando a su hijo a hacer un horario específico de ver televisión, y planeando que programas puede el ver.

Asegúrese de incorporar las rutinas familiares durante el día de su hijo. Sentarse a cenar juntos es importante, un horario regular para dormir es muy importante al igual que un buen desayuno. Los niños deben tener responsabilidades alrededor de la casa que deben llevar cabo. Asegúrese de que todas sus responsabilidades son realizadas antes de acostarse. Por último, fomente las actividades extracurriculares, pero recuerde, la escuela es lo primero!

¿Cómo puede ayudar?

Sea un modelo, o ejemplo, utilice un calendario y se refiérase a él con frecuencia.

Premie el orden.

Ayude a su niño a aprender a organizarse, dejándole ayudar a organizar un viaje a la tienda, o una fiesta de cumpleaños. Use un cronómetro si su hijo tiene problemas para seguir un horario.

_________________________________________________________

studio11. Write down assignments in a notebook. Write when it’s due. Use a calendar to plan projects.

2. Use self-stick notes to attach to books he needs for homework. This will remind him what to take home.

3. File papers. Include an area in each folder for finished and unfinished assignments.

4. Make “to do” lists. Model it as a parent and make one for each study time. The child crosses off each item as it is completed.

5. Pack backpack at night and put it by the door.

6. Break long projects into small parts. Write them on the calendar.

7. Set up a study spot. Quiet. Well-lit. Hang up a “Do Not disturb” sign. No visitors, phone calls.

8. Choose a place comfortable or your child. Some work best in their room; others are too distracted.

9. Area to work in must be neat. School supplies should be well-stocked in a box.  Pencils, rulers, paper, sharpener, dictionary etc.

10. Encourage your child to study in the same place every day.

11. Study when child is most alert. It is best to study at the same time every day. Set your schedule every day.

12. Study the hardest subjects first.

13. Set a required working time so your child does not rush through assignments. Then they can read during rest of time. (Grades 1-3, 10-30 minutes per day; Grades 4-6, 30-60 minutes per day)

14. It is okay to play quiet classical music. Some kids find it helps them to concentrate. The TV should be off.

It is important to be organized in other parts of life too. This will help with schoolwork. For example, make sure your child has specific places to keep his things. Limit TV watching by helping your child make a plan of which shows to watch.

Be sure to incorporate familiar routines into your day. Sitting down to dinner together is important; a regular bedtime is very important as is a good breakfast. Children should have regular responsibilities around the house to perform. Make sure all of his responsibilities are taken care of before bedtime. Last, encourage extracurricular activities, but remember; school comes first!!

How can you help?

Be a model, o example, use a calendar and refer to it often. Reward orderliness.

Help your child learn to organize by letting him help organize a trip to the store, or a birthday party. Use a timer if your child has trouble sticking to a schedule.

Practice Spanish using Picture Dictionary A-Z

Picture Dictionary is one of the five activities included in the El Alfabeto (The Alphabet) game, and it consists of three primary categories: A – I, J – Q and R – Z.

el alfabeto menu

By clicking on one of these three categories, children will be automatically redirected to a screen where they will be able to see different pages, each of them presenting them a letter contained within one of the aforementioned categories, along with four different Spanish words using it, which come along with a supporting picture, their Spanish name and their English translation.

coloringpage5
The pages following the page with the letter will present children each word separately, along with a supporting picture (which is bigger this time), the name of the word, the syllables it is composed of and its letters as well.
Each category has a slider located at the bottom of the game interface, which can be used in order to advance to the next pages.

The “Print This Page” button allows children to print out the respective pages in order to start coloring them. Children can then go back to the main interface of the El Alfabeto game, where they will be able to select another from the three categories of the Picture Dictionary available there by clicking on one of the icons located at the bottom of the game interface.
Since this Picture Dictionary comes with so many interesting features and advantages, children can easily learn Spanish language without problems. They can start learning the letters of the alphabet gradually, and then familiarize with their presence in various words that use them. Thankfully, reading each syllable might help them improve their pronunciation significantly, and given the fact that they are able to see and read each letter of the provided words, they will take their Spanish language skills to the next level.

coloringpage4The words included within the pages of the Picture Dictionary vary in terms of difficulty, which will permit children to have a better understanding of Spanish language. Since each letter is pronounced in different ways depending upon the word it is included within, children will be able to learn how to form their own words at the end of the lesson.
What is more, printing and then coloring the pages will engage them in a pleasurable and enjoyable activity that will make learning the Spanish alphabet extremely nice. Children can learn everything easier when they are fascinated by a thing or another, so they will not need to go through boring lessons again and again only to learn the letters. After going through the other four activities included within the El Alfabeto game, they will already know how to pronounce the letters, so the Picture Dictionary will be a great way to practice their language skills while coloring each picture corresponding to the words presented on the pages.
Children will be able to print the pages several times, so that they can color them in various ways and learn Spanish language easily, without the necessity to pay for supplementary lessons.

¡Con mi cuento encanto!

En búsqueda de nuevo material para compartir con ustedes, nos hemos encontrado con este maravilloso sitio “Con mi cuento encanto”, como lo describen ellos mismos “es un proyecto para la primera infancia cuya principal característica se fundamenta en la creación de relatos por parte de niños y niñas, como resultado de sesiones o talleres creativos llevados a cabo en diferentes lugares del país (Colombia). Estos relatos originales son adaptados para radio y cada uno de ellos cuenta con un tema musical propio. 

la camara locaSon veinte cuentos y veinte piezas musicales recogidas en un disco compacto para ser distribuido en algunas emisoras y en las bibliotecas públicas, así como en otras instancias y entidades relacionadas con el tema de infancia.

Todos los cuentos son maravillosos, nos ha gustado mucho uno que se llama “la cámara loca”, este cuento es de una región de Colombia que se llama el Caquetá, pero lo que más admiramos, es el relato que hacen los niños, la manera tan natural como cuentan los cuentos, y junto con los arreglos que la parte de producción le han hecho al cuento, con la música y los efectos de sonido, dan vida a sus relatos! Felicitaciones!

____________________________________________________________

We were looking for new material to share with all of you and we have found this wonderful site “Con mi cuento encanto” as they describe themselves, “is an early childhood project whose main characteristic is based on the creation of stories by children as a result of creative sessions or workshops held in different parts of the country (Colombia). These original stories were adapted for radio and each has a musical theme itself. 

There are twenty stories and twenty tracks collected in a CD to be distributed in some radio stations and public libraries, as well as other institutions related to the theme of childhood.”

All stories are wonderful, we really liked one called “La cámara loca“, this story is from a region of Colombia is called El Caquetá, but the thing that we most admire, is how the kids tell the story, additional the arrangements and the production, with music and sound effects give a real life to their stories!

April National Poetry Month – ¿Cómo se dibuja un paisaje? – Gloria Fuertes

El poema de hoy es “¿Cómo se dibuja un paisaje?” de la poeta española Gloria Fuertes.

Un paisaje que tenga de todo,
se dibuja de este modo:
Unas montañas,
un pino,
arriba el sol,
abajo un camino,
una vaca,
un campesino,
unas flores,
un molino,
la gallina y un conejo,
y cerca un lago como un espejo.
Ahora tú pon los colores;
la montaña de marrón,
el astro sol amarillo,
colorado el campesino,
el pino verde,
el lago azul
-porque es espejo del cielo como tú-,
la vaca de color vaca,
de color gris el conejo,
las flores…
como tú quieras las flores,
de tu caja de pinturas.
¡Usa todos los colores!
