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!

Gracias,

Earth Day and Language Skills – Children Learn How to Protect the Environment in an Engaging Way

dia de la tierra1

Día de la Tierra (Earth Day) is one of the most complex and helpful Spanish lessons within “Holidays and Celebrations” chapter, bringing a number of engaging activities for both children and adults who want to learn more about this international event. Thankfully, these activities can help all children understand the importance of our environment, allowing them to walk away having greater knowledge regarding the most appropriate ways to protect the earth against pollution and other harmful factors.
The first activity, “Earth Day”, enables children to successfully remove all trashy items, including cans and bottles, which contribute to polluting the environment at a great deal. Once all items are banished, children will be able to see 12 images that depict several concepts and items related to the environment, including recycling, a soda can and a bin. By clicking on each image, they will be able to see the English name of the item in question, followed by the pronunciation of its Spanish name and, finally, the syllables that form it.
dia de la tierra2“Go Green” is the second and most helpful activity, which comes with plenty of ideas and tips on living a green life to protect Earth’s natural environment. By clicking on each image, children will be able to see these tips in both English and Spanish version, and the small audio icon next to them will allow them to hear the Spanish version being pronounced. Not only will they understand the importance of going green, but they will also be able to improve their Spanish language skills substantially.
The “Memory game” activity incorporates the classic memory game within it, but the only difference is that the cards will display environment-related images and graphics. Furthermore, “Dunk-a-Pingu” aims to test children’s understanding of protecting the environment, such as recycling, prior to the Earth Day. This activity is basically a hangman-style game, as children have to select the right letters in order to form the Spanish name of the image depicted on the whale. Not selecting the right letter will determine the ice block on which Pingu stays to break, until he will fall in the cold water.

There are, of course, many other excellent activities for those children who want to learn more about the Earth Day. “Beenny’s Game” requires kids to guide Beenny the bee through the labyrinth and solve all challenges in order to progress. The “Word Search Puzzle” activity involves searching specific words that are Earth-related within a square of letters, whilst the “Recycling Game” requires kids to sort items in the correct recycling bins. The more items they sort correctly, the bigger their score will be. Moreover, the “Coloring Pages” are printable, depicting several items that are highly related to Earth’s natural environment.

dia de la tierra

Each activity within “Día de la Tierra” lesson will increase awareness, allowing children to learn about the best practices involved within protecting the Earth from pollution and other factors that might damage it. All activities are very engaging, and they can even improve kids’ Spanish language abilities, permitting them to develop a cultural sense that can manifest later in their lives positively, determining them to act against pollution and support Earth Day.

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.

Vacaciones en “el Parque Panaca”

En nuestras vacaciones de verano fuimos a visitar a las abuelitas en Bogotá – Colombia. Estuvimos compartiendo con la familia y también disfrutamos de algunas actividades que nunca habíamos hecho.

P1020563

Una de ellas ha sido muy especial y hemos querido compartirla con ustedes por que ha dejado una gran aventura en nuestra vida y un gran recuerdo. Fue nuestra visita a “Panaca”.

Panaca abrió las puertas al público en agosto de 2006, está ubicado a sólo 40 minutos de Bogotá, entre los municipios de Briceño y Zipaquirá, al norte de la capital de Colombia, que es Bogotá. Los visitantes pueden interactuar con una colección de 2.400 animales domésticos, recorrer las 7 sorprendentes estaciones temáticas, que son la de ganadería, la de porcicultura, la canina, la equina, la estación de especies menores, la ecológica y la estación de agricultura orgánica, allí pudimos comprar vegetales y frutas recién sacados de la huerta!

Además estuvimos en las 4 espectaculares exhibiciones de caballos, perros, ganadería y cerditos! En el área de los cerditos les dimos tetero, alimentamos las cabras, a los patos y a las gallinas, también en la estación de ganadería, ordeñamos a las vacas, montamos a caballo y en llama! Fue muy divertido.

Una de las exhibiciones más bonitas fue la de los caballos, los vimos danzar, correr y hacer movimientos muy artísticos y difíciles, el trabajo de todos los entrenadores de estos caballos ha sido muy profesional y de mucha dedicación. Felicitaciones!

Así que si piensas visitar a Bogotá, no se te olvide visitar a Panaca!

Our summer in “Panaca Park”

This past summer, we went to visit our grannies in Bogotá , Colombia in South America.

We spent a lot of time with family and also enjoyed some activities that we had never done before.

P1020642

One of them was very special for us and we wanted to share it with everyone. It was a great adventure in our life and a great memory. It was our visit to  “Panaca“.

Panaca opened its doors in August 2006, is located just 40 minutes north of Bogotá (the capital of Colombia) and is between the cities of Briceño and Zipaquirá. Visitors can interact with a collection of over 2,400 pets. You can have amazing adventures in the seven themed stations that include: horses, pigs, dogs, cows, and other small animals. There is also an organic farming station where we could buy vegetables and fruits fresh from the field!

We spent time in the spectacular exhibitions for horses, dogs, cows and pigs! We milked the cows, fed the pigs with a milk bottle, and also fed goats, ducks and chickens. We rode horses and llamas! It was fun.

P1020613

One of the most beautiful exhibits was the horse exhibit! We saw them dancing, running and do very artistic movements. We know that it must have been really hard work and taken a lot of dedication by all the trainers to put on such a professional and wonderful show. Congratulations!

So if you plan to visit to Bogotá, do not forget to visit  Panaca!

¡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! Congratulations!

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!
