My son entered kindergarten this year. He is attending a Mandarin immersion program at school, which means he is taught basic subjects (math, history, science, art, culture, etc) in Chinese for 80% of the day, and he learns English (reading, writing, speaking) for 20% of the day. It has been one month since he started and already he is speaking and thinking in Chinese. He comes home every day with a new word that he has learned. Lately it is a whole set of words. He can say "Hello, my name is Texas and I am 5 years old." It is amazing that he picks it up so quickly.
No dia 13 de Setembro, tivemos uma manhã maravilhosa com os alunos do 4º ano do colégio José Calil Filho, em Macaé.
Dear SEED Coordinators,
I am writing this open public letter to share with you a wonderful initiative I saw two weeks ago in the corridor of the SEED Lab in Sugar Land, Houston, Texas.
I was wondering if you would dare to do the same in your corridors so that more Schlumberger employees and families get inspired by The Amazing Puzzle Book from SEED!!!
Just watched this great inspirational video starring Educators. I loved it!
And what about you? Are you a connected Educator, a connected Teacher, or a connected Student?
What is your definition of Creativity?
For some it might be problem solving, for others the expression of their emotions. The list can go on...
Songs, most of the time are stress relievers. Songs relieve many kinds of pains and stresses in life. Hence, just sing a song if you have problems in life or inside the class.
As a teacher, before I have to start my lesson, I require my students to sing a song - praise song. The students soon to love the song.
One of my favorite songs is the - TRADING MY SORROWS. I'm so happy that, one of the groups had sang this song coupled with actions during the culminating program of the Science Department just today.
To encourage students to study harder is a tough task to do. Some students at this time, go to school just to satisfy the attendance needed by the their teachers. Competitiveness inside the class sometimes is not observed by some students.
Hence, I'm so blessed to have the following students who have strived hard in order to win a competition, although I am holding lower classes.
CONGRATULATIONS to all my students who won the contest as below:
Division of Quezon City schools is composed of 46 regular high schools. Schools come to compete each other during Science Month - September 2013.
The result shows this picture - positive points for all Quirinians:
GOD BLESS us all!
Picture paints a thousand words. But, taking a video is still the best.
There have been hundreds of blogs from Quirino High School, Quezon City, Philippines, submitted to this site. Those blogs contain pictures and videos through the courtesy of many camera owners. Some pictures are good to see; videos are amazing to watch; and all of those are worth treasuring.
This time, we say again how good it is to belong to a family where unity is present and whose spirit flows anytime/anywhere.
We wish to share with you this macro. We took it today after rain.This is a beautiful snail, isn't it? It's called "caracol" here.
