A New Approach to Teaching Children

An Early Education

It has been made clear that for a child to be successful later in life, their education plays a heavy role. Because of this, many parents are seeking ways to introduce education early to their child. However, not all children are, themselves, prepared for some of the approaches that certain schools take. For many, they are still in certain parts of their development and thus are not prepared or ready for the traditional forms of education. However, there is an educational approach that has seen wide popularity in Silicon Valley and has been reaching other parts of the country since.

This approach is called the Reggio Emilia model. In this model, Reggio Emilia schools mix play with education. Effectively, they examine the child's interests and create a model of education that mixes those interests with learning. In this way, the child is developing without even realizing that they are receiving an education. For many schools, this is an art-based approach, although certainly not limited to it.

One of the schools in Florida that has seen incredible success by adopting the Reggio Emilia model is Bartram Academy. While they keep their school size small, this allows the teachers to know their students and their students' families closely. Relationships are formed, and teachers are then better equipped to understand the child's interests and strengths and come up with lesson plans that better impact them. Considering that the Reggio Emilia model was given the award of being one of the best educational systems in the world in 1991, there is something to be said for it.

Whether you live in Florida or elsewhere, you may want to consider placing your child in a school that focuses on this form of a model. From one-year-olds to pre-kindergarten, many of these schools are still looking for students. However, because of the rising popularity of the Reggio Emilia model, seats are filling quickly. If you want your child to have a headstart, you should act now.

Turn Your Child’s Room into a Magical World

Decorating your child’a room is a wonderful way to bring them joy. What better way to do this than to turn their room into a magical world filled with all their favorite characters from TV along with everything they love. You can do this in three simple steps. They are easy to do, but the results are amazing.

The Base Layer

You don't need any artistic skills to accomplish this. Your goal is to make the room look like the outdoors. Draw a wavy line two-thirds of the way up the wall. Paint from there down in green and everything above in sky blue. Paint the ceiling blue as well. By doing this, you have made a hillside landscape with a bright, clear sky overhead.

Add Details

Draw images around the room of their favorite characters and places. This could be Winnie the Pooh and his tree or Elmo on Sesame Street. Don't set everything on top of the wavy line. Put plenty of things on the lower half of the room. Use brushes from quality artist brush manufacturers to color the images in. Don't forget to put planes, birds, and balloons in the sky with plenty of white clouds.

The Finishing Touches

The finishing touches will complete the room. Make a valance out of heavy duty cardboard. Start with a large piece of cardboard, and draw a big sunshine with a cloud touching on each side. Cut it out, paint it, and hang it above the window with brackets. Keep bedding and curtains in solid colors so that they don't compete with your artworK.
Once you have finished, this will be a bedroom that they will love spending time in. The bright colors will stimulate their mind, the images will help them learn new words, and when it's bedtime, there will be nothing to be afraid of. Others will think you had it professionally decorated, but you will know it was truly a labor of love.

Trusting No One But Him

In my 36 years of existence, God has remain faithful in my life. Even at times when I doubt His faithfulness for every unanswered prayers. For me, TRUST is such a BIG WORD. Considering the kind of world that we're living right now, it's so hard to trust someone, even your very own family. We just can't simply trust them when it comes to our emotions because oftentimes, it is our family whom our heart cannot trust anymore. Why? Because they simply just don't care. If there's someone whom we could truly rely on and trust completely, it's God alone. We may not able to fathom His ultimate plans for us, but I'm sure that it is for our own good.
