Family School Orchard

A week ago with the help of our teacher Hella and our gardener Javier the 2 and 3 years old class have planted the Family School orchard. This activity has different objectives such as:

  • Contacting our students with the natural environment.
  • Communicate the importance of plants in our lives.
  • Promote respect for plants and our environment.
  • Awakening natural curiosity of children and encourage them to think and dicover things for themselves.
  • Create a daily routine of caring for the plants.

Our orchard is beautiful!! In addition to have planted lettuce, daisies, peas and parsley all of us have painted a few stones to decorate.

Now we’re just waiting for our harvest!! :)

*************************************************************************************************************************************************

Hace una semana con la ayuda de la teacher Hella y nuestro jardinero Javier la clase de 2 y 3 años han plantado el huerto de Family School. Esta actividad cumple con diferentes objetivos tales como:

  • Poner en contacto a nuestros alumnos con el medio natural.
  • Transmitir la importancia de las plantas en nuestra vida.
  • Promover el respeto de las plantas y nuestro entorno.
  • Despertar la curiosidad natural de los niños y estimularles para que piensen y descubran cosas por sí mismos.
  • Crear una rutina diaria sobre el cuidado de las plantas.

Nuestro huerto ha quedado precioso!! Porque además de haber plantado lechugas, margaritas, guisantes y perejil. Todos hemos pintado unas piedras para decorarlo.

Ahora solo estamos esperando nuestra cocecha!! :)

10 books Every Kid Should Have on Their Bookshelf

We’ve put together a list of 10 essential books that every kid should have on his or her bookshelf growing up. Add your own suggestions to the list please!!!!

prince

The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The much beloved classic — gorgeous, insightful, a bit postmodern. And of course, there’s that eternal takeaway: “’Goodbye,’ said the fox. ‘Now here is my secret. It is very simple. It is only with one’s heart that one can see clearly. What is essential is invisible to the eye.’”

wild

Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak

Maybe our favorite kids’ book of all time: a traditional quest narrative gone haywire, all wrapped in Sendak’s gleefully monstrous illustrations and take-no-prisoners narrative juice.

 

chris

The Sweetest Fig, Chris Van Allsburg

We think all children should have every book Chris Van Allsburg has ever created, each one a gorgeous breath of fresh air amongst the spastically colored, hyperactive media kids are usually fed. Our favorite is The Sweetest Fig, which happens to come with a double-sided moral: be nice to your pets, and magic is real.

dahl

Matilda, Roald Dahl

Again, we’re pretty confident saying that all kids should have the entire oeuvre — minus the smutty stuff, of course (until later). Book nerds that we are, we favor that great brain of Matilda’s, but the rest of Dahl’s books are right on her tail.

carroll

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll

Must we even explain? Every child needs to experience Wonderland.

 

baum

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, L. Frank Baum

Speaking of wizards of, we also recommend L. Frank Baum’s classic series. No, the film is not sufficient (though it is wonderful). Trust us.

 

barrie

Peter Pan and Wendy, J. M. Barrie

If our children don’t read Peter Pan, how will they know what the New York Times is talking about when they’re 25 and still living in their parents’ basements? Just kidding (kind of).

Guess How Much I Love You, Sam Mc Bratney

“Guess how much I love you,” says Little Nutbrown Hare. Little Nutbrown Hare shows his daddy how much he loves him: as wide as he can reach and as far as he can hop. But Big Nutbrown Hare, who can reach farther and hop higher, loves him back just as much. Well then Little Nutbrown Hare loves him right up to the moon, but that’s just halfway to Big Nutbrown Hare’s love for him.


A taste of The Moon,  Michael Grejniec. Kalandraka, 2010.

Is a fable about co-operation, the advantages of being insignificant in size and appearance, and perspective, with a dash of humour provided by a playful moon. We like it!

 

Seven Blind Mice, Ed Young.

“It’s a pillar,” says one. “It’s a fan,” says another. One by one, the seven blind mice investigate the strange Something by the pond. And one by one, they come back with a different theory. It’s only when the seventh mouse goes out-and explores the whole Something-that the mice see the whole truth. Based on a classic Indian tale, Ed Young’s beautifully rendered version is a treasure to enjoy again and again.

Role Playin or Juego Simbólico.

Role Playing is a vital childhood experience that allows to transform, create new worlds, other lives to live, play at being other person and learn to think like others. Definitely to know that there are ways of thinking and feeling different from itself.

Role Playing stands out for its importance in the develpment of the child and thanks to it children represent a mental and mimed reality that reflect according to their desires and needs. Thereby allowing their feelings.

We played beeing doctrs at Family School!! It was great!!

 

Los juegos simbólicos son una experiencia vital de la infancia que permiten transformar, crear nuevos mundos, otras vidas que vivir, jugar a ser otra persona y aprender a pensar y a sentir diferente de sí mismo.

Los juegos simbólicos destacan por su importancia en el desarrollo del nuño y gracias a este los niños representan mental y mímicamente una realidad que plasman según sus deseos y necesidad. Permitiendo así expresar sus sentimientos.

Hemos jugado a ser médicos en Family School!! y fue increíble!!
