La visita al Planetario Alfa, experiencia fuera del espacio conocido de la escuela, fue enormemente enriquecedora. Para nuestros chicos y chicas implicó un saberse conducir y adaptase en áreas públicas sin sus padres, lo cual fue para algunos todo un reto.

 

Expresaron alegría, sorpresa, asombro y en ocasiones también temores ante situaciones desconocidas. A las maestras nos tocó acompañarlos y estar cerca para que se sintieran confiados y disfrutando de la compañía de sus amigos.

 

Tuvimos la oportunidad de practicar la convivencia, la tolerancia, el seguir instrucciones de traslados, el aceptar y disfrutar nuevas experiencias, observar cuidadosamente, identificar las experiencias que se relacionaron con los temas que hemos visto en las diferentes clases, reconocer un problema, escuchar a los demás y expresar sus ideas con argumentos relacionados con aprendizajes previos.

 

Welcome to our Classrooms!

Building a partnership between home and school is important and we welcome you to visit your child's classroom.  Children love to have their parent(s) visit them at school. It makes them feel important, increases their self-confidence and it is an excellent parent-child bonding experience. Also, it lets them know that you, as a parent, value education and are interested in what they are learning at school. This is a chance for you to become better able to help in your child’s learning.

 

Thanks to Rocio Flores and Humberto Gutierrez for visiting my classroom and sharing such a meaningful activity with my students.

Have you ever thought about the level of consciousness of our children? We want to share our experience!

It all started when I read a post by teacher Sergio about Mindful Schools (a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, emotions, sensations and surrounding environment). The post was very interesting since we firmly believe on the benefits of Mindfulness to stimulate the thinking process, to reduce the stress levels and to have full consciousness of the present. In the last few years, this approach has been introduced in all levels of educational settings, from Kindergarten levels all the way to well-known universities such as Harvard and Stanford.

 

One day while I was picking up Umberto and Eugenia I ran into Teacher Sergio and let him know my feelings about that post and we both came up with the idea of working together on a Mindfulness project in the near future. Things worked out sooner than I expected. We got an invitation from him to take part in a Mindfulness activity in Eugenia’s classroom- 4th B during our visit for the “Mañana de Trabajo”. We were excited to share this experience with the kids and we thank him for the opportunity as we learned a lot as well.

 

How did it happen?

During the English class Teacher Sergio made the kids reflect about these phrases, the meaning of each word and their differences.

We are different, we are the same. Diversity activities teach young children to respect and celebrate the differences in all people. Learning about different cultural aspects offers new experiences for children. It also helps them realize that we’re all humans, despite differences in how we look or dress, or what we eat or celebrate.

Activities in our English class promote and celebrate cultural differences. Fifth Graders held the first “Healthy Snacks from Around the World Food Fest” in the arena gym on December 11, 2015. They set up some very cool stands with flags and information representing a certain food from a different country.

They selected countries from America, Asia, and Europe; there was even one team who chose Coast d`Ivory to represent Africa to make our international menu. Kids were so excited and thrilled to be able to prepare these dishes and give out spoken information about what they investigated during class; we even had the collaboration of some parents who helped out their kids. From pastas to solid soups, we had all sorts of delicious and healthy snacks that the rest of the school got the opportunity to taste.

“United World Colleges es la única Organización educativa a nivel global que reúne estudiantes de todo el mundo seleccionados en sus propios países con base en sus propios méritos personales y académicos, sin importar en absoluto su situación económica. Dichos estudiantes asisten a uno de los quince Colegios del Mundo Unido, los que tienen por objeto promover la educación y lograr el entendimiento y la paz internacional.” (uwcmexico.org)

“Creo que tú podrías pasar este proceso” fueron las primeras palabras que me hicieron acercarme a aplicar al Proceso de Selección para ser becaria de los Colegios del Mundo Unido (UWC por sus siglas en inglés), dichas por Carolina Elizondo, quien había sido seleccionada para asistir a UWC Costa Rica un año antes que yo, quien a su vez escuchó las mismas palabras venir de Silvia Cantú, quien asiste a UWC Pearson en Canadá, desde un año antes que ella, ambas ex-alumnas de mi colegio alma mater, FORMUS. Es un proceso muy arduo, uno de los más complejos del mundo para los aplicantes, que consta de cinco fases. Un proceso que en pocas palabras es una competencia, del cual los detalles no se dan a conocer a los que lo enfrentan sino hasta el día en el que les toca vivirlo, por lo que en teoría nadie está más preparado que otro. Digo en teoría porque, desde mi parecer, yo si estaba entrenada para él.
