TAPPING KIDS’ CREATIVE POTENTIALS

One can see angels in every piece of art. ~Terri Guillemets

A common impression among us is that art education is a luxury and it belongs to the affluent in society. This is no longer the case now. We take art as an academic- leisure. A fun-filled and creative activity that would serve as the building blocks of child development. It is important for children to learn to appreciate the visual aesthetics in their growing years.

Art projects provides opportunity for kids to learn more about colors, shapes and the appropriate actions needed for creativity. The Children’s Ark Preparatory School aims to tap children’s inventiveness, resourcefulness and of course, talent.

According to a survey by AMERICANS FOR THE ARTS, art education strengthens problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The experience of making decisions and choices in the course of creating art carries over into other parts of life.

MaryAnn Kohl, an arts educator and author of numerous books about children’s art education states: “If they are exploring and thinking and experimenting and trying new ideas, then creativity has a chance to blossom.”

Another good thing about art projects is that this encourages children to express themselves and take adventures in the art field where they can develop a sense of innovation which is crucial in their future lives. Many studies have proven that there is a connection between art and people’s achievements in life.

THE DOCTORS ARE IN: TCAPS MEDICAL AND DENTAL CHECK

Growth in kids accompanies lots of changes, some of which are so delicate even parents finds it hard to become aware of. TCAPS believes that regular medical and dental checks are important in identifying as early as possible some problems that might interfere with our student’s normal development. Our physical check-up aims to pinpoint and evaluate each child’s wellness and perhaps spot some health problems beforehand.

We would like to thank Dr. Lynmar Bacolor, our school Physician and Dr. Salvador Pecson, our school dentist for taking care of our health concerns.

NUTRITION MONTH 2014: Kalamidad Paghandaan, Gutom at Malnutrisyon Agapan

Based on the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FRNI) survey of 2011, malnutrition among Filipino kids is still widespread. It showed that two out of 10 children from 0 to 47 months old were born with low birth weight. The research verified that geographic location is a factor affecting children’s health. In the Philippines, the most number of malnourished children are those from Visayas and Mindanao.

The barangays — being the smallest unit of government –would do well in setting nutrition as a priority in their annual budget and by taking actions to create a well-informed citizenry.

For this reason, we have the National Nutrition Month which aims to disseminate nutrition related messages to all Filipinos. This year’s theme titled “Kalamidad Paghandaan, Gutom at Malnutrisyon Agapan,” is intent in promoting the following:

  • Interventions to address nutritional needs in emergencies and disasters
  • Mobilize responders particularly the local nutrition clusters and stakeholders
  • Increase awareness among families and individuals on coping and resiliency strategies

The Children’s Ark Preparatory School is committed in bolstering children’s knowledge and awareness of food and nutrition. This year, the school observed Nutrition Month with yet another fun-filled festivity.

Who or What Broke My Kids?

The Children's Ark Preparatory School:

Spreading this. Keep up the good work.

Originally posted on powersfulmath:

I am Desperate

I am on a desperate search to find out who or what broke my students.  In fact I am so desperate that I stopped class today to ask them who broke them.  Was it their parents, a former teacher, society, our education system or me that took away their inquisitive nature and made math only about getting a right answer?  I have known this was a problem for a while but today was the last straw.  

A Probability Lesson Gone Wrong

It started out innocently enough working on the seventh grade Common Core standard 7.SP.C.5 about understanding that all probabilities occur between zero and one and differentiating between likely and unlikely events which I thought would be simple enough. After the introduction and class discussion we began partner work on this activity from the Georgia Common Core Resource Document (see page 9).  The basic premise of…

The Tecumseh Poem

(In the closing scenes of the movie Act of Valor, a poem by Tecumseh was read aloud in honor of a departed war hero. The poem served as a gift by the fallen soldier to his son. This short and powerful poem by Tecumseh deserved a space here in our site. Keep this always in your pocket.)
