Interesting Documentation from FSIA

On March FSIA developed some very interesting documentation while working with the seasons and books.

With the purpose of familiarizing children with books, Ms. Ana Cristina performed numerous and diverse activities that explored every aspect of what makes up a book. The children learned how to take care of books, the parts of a book (front cover, back cover, headband,) where the name of the author is, where the name of the illustrator is, and the basic ways in which a book functions.

In addition children used the “Topic Web” routine to talk about their favorite books and the “Beginning/Middle/End” routine to analyze the stories.

Similarly, the other teachers at FSIA used different routines to explore the theme of the month, Seasons. Two very interesting examples of documentation are Ms. Tyler’s (who used a “Topic Web” to analyze spring, think/pair/share to explore summer, a headline routine for fall, and 10x20 for winter,) and Ms. Nildred’s (who also used different routines in every season and then elaborated a beautiful 3D tree to document her results!)

Music and its Impact in the Learning for Children in the 21st Century

Creating a Culture of Learning for the 21st Century requires children to be exposed to many experiences through activities that stimulate their senses and their thinking. In fact, the arts, in general, and specially music have demonstrated to have many benefits on children’s development. Music promotes discipline, concentration, determination, self-esteem, communication and creativity.

Music enhances mathematical thinking and intelligence development and helps individuals in real and substantial ways: socially, academically, and in life in general. Moreover, music among other arts like visual arts and dance are now considered to be the new language of media and sensory literacy for the 21st Century.

For that reason, Edu1st.Schools incorporated a music program in the curriculum. A proof of that is a group of children between the ages of 4 and 7 that are part of First Steps International Academy Children’s Orchestra, directed by Israel Aragon.
