Just today we are going to celebrate our United Nations Activity together with the other school, Oak Tree Learning Center. All of us teachers consider is a big event that is why, we all decided to celebrate it in the big venue. We are all pleased that all our students were present together with the countries costume. I am so glad and happy to see all of them, participated and with their fabulous costume, they all look so amazing.

The program started with parade together with their country flags. They all walked along fantastic with great smiles and waving flags. These activity aim to boost their self – confidence in stage and performing in front of a big crowd. Every group of countries has its own performance and at the same time introduction part.

Its nice to see kids performing with their level of energy, nice to see them performing well enough. Over all presentation we all did a great job. I congratulate each and every one for this successful performance. Although some of my students got sick, they are still here to show off their talents and costume.

Fascinating ways that your Preschoolers can Learn

Teachers in the preschool needs to be more creative and imaginative in their teaching strategies. As a teacher of the preschoolers, every time I introduce new topic I always wonder how can they learn from me? Would they understand what I’ll be teaching them? To attained the objectives of my lesson, I making sure in every activity they would learn and at the same time have fun.

It has been told many times that children are great imitators. They can learn easily through imitations. In fact preschoolers can learn so much of their behavior by just observing and imitating to the people around them. As a parent you have a direct interaction and give a big impact on the behavior you are showing them. Always display or show good attitudes and manners then they will also follow you.

Preschoolers are believer of fantasy or make – believe. Their fantasy world help them to connect with the reality. They love to pretend like they are the father, mother, doctors, teachers, policeman, soldier and so much more. As long as it will display power just like superheroes. In my classes I always portray as the fairy god mother who has the strongest power. With that imagination they will tend to focus more on me, because sometimes I am dress up like a fairy god mother, I also have my own magic wand. All through out our class, all eyes on me and from there on I can introduce the new lesson for them. Easy as that.

The last one that I am using for the preschoolers to learn is through stories. Reading stories for my students is our chance to bond. They mostly like fantasy stories and they would listen and focus to you very well. From that short stories they can learn values, good attitudes and good behavior. This is the moment that they are encourage to share and say something about the readings. It will develop their cognitive and language skills.

 

 

 

Let your Child Perform on stage to boost their self – esteem

I remember before it is one of our big event in the school calendar. All of our students need to perform an stage play. I made the script and I make sure that every student have their own line to say and they are going to portray each character of a story. They are all required to wear their costume on the said event.

But before the event took place we have enormous changes in our script and performance. Because this one parent of my student decided that she wants her daughter to be the lead actress. I reasoned out why I didn’t choose her daughter, I told her that her daughter have difficulty in speech and we dont want to pressure her, we are just giving task that is enough for her capacity. But the parent insist, and so I changed the script again. I am aiming that the student will go on stage and perform her character. After few practices the said student didn’t show up and I was wondering why she isn’t showing up. Where in fact, I already changed the script and decided she will be part of the lead actresses. Only to find out, the mother decided not to let her daughter join the stage play. So again I changed the script.

We as a parents, we always support our kids in any activities that they have in the school. Through that activities they will gain socialization and boost their self confidence. Its not always that our kids will go on stage and perform their talents. Its not because they can sing and dance at home, they can also do that on stage with so many people and big crowd. Some would be frightened and wont go on. But this is the stage of development that they need to conquer on, as the time goes by they need to deal big crowd.  So as early as now, its good if you would help them practice being independent and confident in the big crowd. That is what we are trying to develop with our student so as much as possible we make sure that all of them will go on stage and perform.

United Nations Program for Sunnyville Learning Center

Its been a while since I am away and never had any update of my blog. As you can see in my last post, I was in deep misery and never had the mood to write anything good. Just until today, I decided to get up and make an update for this blog. I apologize for all my readers and visitors. I’ll try to keep this blog more updated and got more stuff to read for your kids and parenting stuff.

As of this week, we are busy preparing for the upcoming United Nations program of our school. Other than Christmas Party and Graduation Program, United Nations Program is considered as one of the biggest event in our school. Our school administrator decided to do the event in the bigger place with the other school Oak Tree Early Childhood Center. While busy for the preparation of this upcoming big event. We as a teacher busy as well preparing our students to their stage performance and the introduction part.

We have students who are having speech difficulties and delay in speech. So we make an extra effort for them to say at least one word just to introduce themselves. Its a lot of job to do and work on, its not easy because we only have 2 weeks to go and its the big event already. We have to make our effort double this time as the students need to practice for their performance.

Finally, its nice to be back again with the hope to post more lively and funny articles. Thank you for keeping with me in my darkest moments.

 

Activity Planner for the Week

For me not to get lost on my class activity, I usually prepared some activity other than what I have in my lesson plan. Sometimes you need to think out of the box and need to be creative so that your students, especially preschool they wont get bored and exhausted in what they are doing.

PhotobucketUnfortunately, I came to school unprepared. I started the class without even have my lesson planned. I feel so exhausted in going to school lately, this is because of the upcoming Linggo ng Wika activity. I need to prepare the presentation of my students; I look for the poem and reading materials that my student will recite. Being so perfectionist, I end up nothing and here I am coming to class unprepared.

So to save my day, I let them see the pictures and tell or draw a story what happened to the picture. Then after that I let them guess a word with the first letter that I mentioned. Then I say a word and they will guess what the initial sound is. Ohh, good thing I have reserved activity on my planning. I am so glad that my memory still working to be more creative. This wont happen again, no matter how busy I am I should have my lesson ready a week ahead.

Ways to Alleviate the Boredom of your Preschoolers Students

This is my first issue being a Preschool Teachers, as what I’ve mentioned in my previous post. I keep them busy by having games, nursery rhymes and action songs. But this is not enough, I also mentioned that as a Preschool Teacher I need to have a full pack of different activities because it may get bored again by having the same games all through out the week or month. I have to keep on changing and keeping something reserve for it to be new to them.

Here are some of the things I did inside the classroom:

1. I kept 1 set of toys for them to play for this week only. Then another set for next week. I rotate the toys, same with the story telling books and action songs.

2. I have an art box that have inside the art materials, like glue, scissors, art paper, stickers, stamps, crayons and coloring books. With this we can easily grab it and we all crayon together or cut together or anything just for your students to keep busy.

3. Then I also make a sign “Today you are” so in a box they are going to get a piece of paper that would tell their responsibility for that day. It’s a little job for them to be trained a responsible student.

4. Then my last activity is viewing an educational material.

Planning activities ahead of time would definitely give you an assurance for a success one. I rotate these activities every now and then. I also make sure to get small details in my student’s interest and see if I can create some games or other activities. Just being observant and every thing will be in the right place.

Reinforcement Activity: Games, Nursery Rhymes and Action Songs for the Preschoolers

I can’t believe that I’ll be working and teaching little kids. I thought that being preschool teachers you need to have trainings and workshops for you to be able to understand their behavior, the common behavior for preschoolers and how will you handle it.

My first issue with preschoolers is that they don’t seem to listen. Their attention span is really short and they would not sit down their and would listen to you. They would stand and run around for them get busy. Because of these I have problems on how to teach them, in short classroom management. I have problem with my classroom management for preschooler’s students. I confess that I wasn’t trained to be like this, because in my training teaching; my students where all high school so they behave well. There is no need for me to motivate them for them to behave and listen to me.

As to my reinforcement for this issue, I have to bring back my nursery rhymes and games including the actions songs of my son. Through this I will make my students busy for a while then listen for a while and games for a while and then listen for a while. This is how the teaching proper of a preschoolers. A teacher should be full pack with all the action songs and nursery rhymes.

Niche – Preschool Life

Before I have been wondering what would be the niche for this blog. Fortunately I am into preschool teaching so I’ve decided to make this blog my daily dairy as a preschool teacher. It also includes some techniques if you have toddlers or preschool kid for the parents. I will also include some games and some tips to make your child more adventurous and have fun in learning the foundation of school.

I am so excited to make this blog and keep it growing. However, these past weeks I am so busy with other things because I am getting ready to monetize my other blog. So I work on my other blog keep it up and do some traffic to make it more popular. But now I just cant leave this blog without doing anything. Like, what I said I so excited of this blog and keep on thinking what would be my first post and my succeeding posts.

What I am aware of; this blog will be an educational for the parents and for some teachers out there. I hope I will distribute and convey the message so simple to make life easier for everyone. Just hang on there and keep coming back as I offer different every week. I’ll see you around.
