I join my colleague taveramt and I will share an activity we have done this afternoon in the after school club, attended by preschool children, 3 and 4 years old. We have played Lego Animal Bingo. A wonderful activity so that children explore collaborative play, follow game rules, and take turns as they build the colorful animal models depicted on the game cards. It is also very suitable for working fine motor skills, so necessary.
Of course, we have also built our own inventions …
Gaming is one of the main characters in a child’s life. Children are getting used to spending their time playing or planning how they can play.
Students from 2º grade at Kindergarten, have enjoyed a very funny game to work with numbers at Maths. In addition, we work fine and gross motor skills, coordination skills, and balance to face obstacles such as go under the desk 😋
When learning through playing is so meaningful, boredom at Maths is not an option and things like the following happens…
A few days ago, our colleagues from Töölö Primary School shared many ideas that have led many professors of our school to share experiences closely related to this line of work. The following activity is a good example.
Interiority refers to the deepest dimension of the human being: it gives meaning to life, it is present in every person, regardless of their beliefs, culture or personal or social situation.
Interiority is the ability to recognize oneself from inside and to relate from every one´s essence in order to find a personal balance. This, in addition, has a positive impact on others, on the environment and on society.
Interiority is the opposite to dispersion (not to exteriority). It is the discovery of a deep reality. In the human being, this reality is expressed in many different ways and it needs to be educated and trained as an essential and substantial dimension .
The students in the first year of kindergaten have enjoyed a session of Interiority. The objective of this session was to discover that flowers are living beings and they move, although we can not see them with the naked eye: it is important for students to perceive the life that surrounds them.
To educate interiority is to teach our children and young people that what they live and what they are is controlled by their inner experience.
What better way to kindle children’s interest in science than to do simple experiments with everyday objects? That is exactly what Paula and her mother have done: they have exploded a balloon with an orange, they have made snow, a rainbow and magical figures.
Magnetism, electricity, creation of volcanoes…; some interesting scientific experiments so that kindergarten children receive their first scientific notions!
During this week, our tiny students from kindergarten have tested if their hands are clean enough. According to the post MICROBES: We CAN’T see them but THEY ARE around us, there are many living things around us, but we can’t even feel they are there. For that reason, the students from Kindergarten make the microbes grown and the came from their hands.
The aim of this activity is to make children understand the importance of keeping their hands clean. During this workshop, the children show how microbes are in our body and in the things are around us.
Colegio Santísima Trinidad will undergo a transformation, turning into an art laboratory. Nursery students will get closer to art by means of this project. They will know and work with pictures by great painters; they will contemplate and dialogue about them, they will express their opinions and ideas…
