Have a happy Thanksgiving Day!

For flowers that bloom about our feet;
For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
For song of bird, and hum of bee;
For all things fair we hear or see,
Father in heaven, we thank Thee!
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanksgiving Day Around the World

Thanksgiving is essentially a harvest related festival. It celebrates communal harmony marked as a sense of gratitude people feel for all the good things in life. This is done by offering prayers, gifting your near and dear ones. The fourth Thursday in the month of November is marked for the yearly celebration Though it is said to have been originated in America, a number of other countries celebrate harvest related festivals. They are observed with different names and in different seasons.
Harvest related festivals, all the over the world are characterized with lot of fun and merrymaking. Each region has its unique customs and traditions to jubilate the occasion. The celebration of Thanksgiving will be incomplete without the legendary Turkey. It derives its name from the ‘turk turk’ sounds it makes when scared. Turkey was at one time being considered as the national symbol of America. Benjamin Franklin felt that turkey was the right choice because it was a good runner and had a sharp sight. A bald eagle later became the national symbol of America.
This is the time for relatives living in different places to come together and celebrate.

The first Thanksgiving Story

A long, long time ago the Pilgrims made an ocean trip

From England to America in just one little ship.

That ship was called the „Mayflower,” and it was snug and warm

And kept the Pilgrims safe and sound through every wind and storm.

But after lots and lots of weeks of sailing on the sea,

The sight of land made all of them as happy as could be.

The land they saw was Plymouth Rock on Massachusetts Bay,

And they decided then and there that’s where they all would stay.

Of course, there was a lot of work to get all settled in,

But each and every Pilgrim was quite eager to begin.

And they were lucky, for it wasn’t long until they met

A very friendly Indian whose name was Samoset.

Now Samoset and all his Indian friends were kind and good

And tried to help the Pilgrims out in every way they could.

That spring they even helped in clearing land and planting seed.

So the Pilgrims would be sure of having food to fill their needs.

All summer long the Pilgrims kept as busy as could be

Tending to their growing crops so very carefully.

And then when it was finally time for harvesting that fall,

They found to their delight that they had lots and lots for all.

Of course, they were excited that they’d had such great success,

And they planned a celebration just to show their thankfulness.

They thought they’d fix a dinner that would really be delicious

Where there’d be huge amounts of everybody’s favorite dishes.

But they didn’t really feel as though the food was all their own,

For they knew without the Indians it never would of grown.

And so they asked their special friends if they would join the fun,

And Samoset and all the others said they’d gladly come.

For days ahead the Pilgrims started getting things all set

To make sure there was nothing they could possibly forget.

Then when the big day came, they set the tables up just so,

Then spread out all the food, and it was really quite a show.

At long last it was time to eat, and they all said a prayer

To offer thanks for that God had given them to share.

Why is Education important?

Instruction ends in the school-room, but education ends only with life.

 Without focusing on education, you will find that your career choices are limited. The best way to reach career success is to map out a strategy and set goals. You should focus on things that you like, including hobbies, talents, and interests and determine a career goal. Once you have an idea of what you would like to do, you will need to create a plan or strategy to reach those goals. Without the proper education, our kids will never accomplish their career goals.

 The more you LEARN, the more you EARN:

 Have you ever noticed that the word LEARN contains the word EARN? Perhaps that is because the higher level of education you achieve, the higher level of income you are likely to command as well.

 Learn how to learn. School teaches you how to gather, learn, and apply knowledge. No matter what career you choose, you will need to learn procedures, information, and skills related to your job, and execute tasks based on that information and training.

Develop interpersonal skills. School allows you to interact with other people and refine your communication skills, including those of persuasion, conflict resolution, and teamwork.

Learn time and task management. Learn how to manage projects, deadlines, and complete assignments efficiently and effectively.

Learn from experience of others. By attending school, you are able to learn from the experience and intellect of thousands of people who have gone before you. In just a few years, through your textbooks, research, and class lessons, school gives you a consolidated overview of theories, formulas, ideologies, and experiments conducted by generations of scientists, philosophers, mathematicians, historians, and other experts. While gaining your own personal work experience is helpful too, a formal education is a way to learn from centuries of others’ life and work and academic experience before you.

 Why is education so important?

Education gives us the knowledge of the world around us. It develops in us a perspective of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on everything in life. People debate over the subject of whether education is the only thing that gives knowledge. Some say, education is the process of gaining information about the surrounding world while knowledge is something very different. They are partly right. But the conversion of information to knowledge is possible because of education. Education makes us capable of interpreting rightly the things perceived. Education is not about lessons and poems in textbooks. It is about the lessons of life.

Education is important as it teaches us the right behavior, the good manners thus making us civilized. It teaches us how to lead our lives. Education is the basis of culture and civilization. Education cultivates us into mature individuals, individuals capable of planning for our futures and taking the right decisions. Education arms us with an insight to look at our lives and learn from every experience. The future of a nation is safe in the hands of educated individuals.

Education is important because it equips us with all that is needed to make our dreams come true. Education opens doors of brilliant career opportunities. Schools and colleges define the basic framework of education. Schooling gives us the fundamentals whereas we specialize in fields of our interest, during the degree courses. But education does not end here. It is a lifelong process. Self-learning begins at the point that marks the end of institutional education. The process of self-learning continues…


Believe it or Not!

‘I am’. Is the shortest complete sentence in the English language. ‘Underground’ is the only word in the English language that begins and ends with the letters ‘und.’ According to folk-lore Antidisestablishmentarianism is the longest word in the dictionary, it means being against separating church and state. Mel Blanc [the voice of Bugs Bunny] was allergic to carrots. Walt Disney was afraid of mice. It is possible to lead a cow upstairs but not downstairs . Ants stretch when they wake up in the morning . When tea was first introduced into England, people threw away the liquid and ate the leaves, seasoned with salt and pepper. We actually do not see with our eyes – we see with our brains. The eyes basically are the cameras of the brain. Intelligent people have more zinc and copper in their hair.  During your lifetime, you’ll eat about 60,000 pounds of food. That’s the weight of about 6 elephants The elephant is the only mammal that can’t jump. The penguin is the only bird who can swim, but not fly. It is impossible to lick your elbow. A shrimp’s heart is in their head. The „sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick” is said to be the toughest tongue twister in the English language. A duck’s quack doesn’t echo, and no one knows why. Like fingerprints, everyone’s tongue print is different.

Invatarea limbilor straine de la o varsta frageda

Ce spun Specialistii?

Un copil poate şi este indicat să înveţe o limbă străină de la o vârstă cât mai fragedă.

Un copil poate să înceapă să vorbească o limbă străină de când începe să articuleze cuvinte în limba maternă. Capacitatea creierului de a recepta şi de a învăţa limbi străine este foarte mare la vârste mici. Aşadar, la vârsta de 2-3 ani, când achiziţionează limbajul matern, copilul poate învăţa, în paralel, şi o altă limbă. În plus, copiii au o capacitate surprinzătoare de a face distincţia între cele două limbi pe care le învaţă, deci 2-3 ani nu este o vârstă prea mică”-psihopedagog A. Stănculescu.

La 3 ani, copilul devine mai curios şi adulţii pot colabora cu el, pentru că vorbeşte şi începe să înţeleagă sensul cuvintelor. Este recomandat totusi să se aştepte întâi învăţarea limbii materne foarte bine, înainte de a învăţa să citească într-o altă limbă.  Dacă se vorbeşte şi în casă acea limbă, este cu atât mai bine pentru copil, pentru că la 6 ani va ajunge să vorbească în două limbi”- psiholog A. Ivan.

 Pe la vârsta de 4 ani, devine activă şi se manifestă capacitatea de memorare. „Vârsta aproximativă de 4 ani, în funcţie de dezvoltarea psiho-neuro-somatică a copilului, este prielnică în a asimila o limbă străină. Dar trebuie să se insiste şi să se menţină un program permanent de învăţare a limbii alese, deoarece copilul uită repede, pentru că fixarea este fluctuantă şi adeseori superficială”

 În concluzie, puneţi-l pe copil să înveţe o limbă străină încă de mic, şi nu la şapte ani, concluzionează specialiştii. „E bine să înveţe o altă limbă cât mai de mici şi până învaţă scrisul şi cititul la şcoală”.Copiii nu fac confuzii între cuvinte, dacă învaţă mai multe limbi

 Specialiştii demontează de asemenea şi mitul potrivit căruia copiii pot face confuzii între cuvinte atunci când învaţă mai multe limbi.Pentru copil nu este mai dificil să înveţe două limbi în acelaşi timp decât una singură. Copilul este capabil să diferenţieze mai multe limbi încă înainte de a începe să vorbească. Creierul nefiind format, înmagazinarea mai multor limbi în paralel se face natural”, psiholog. Izsak.

În situaţia în care părinţii au divergenţe asupra limbii pe care copilul să o înveţe, atunci fiecare părinte îl va învăţa limba preferată, deoarece copilul va şti cum să vorbească cu fiecare dintre ei, spun psihologii.

 Metode de Invatare!

Pedagogii şi psihologii au căzut de acord că, modul cel mai eficient ca un copil să înveţe o limbă străină este conversaţia.“O limbă străină se învaţă cel mai bine prin conversaţie permanentă.  Copilul învaţă permanent, făcând orice activitate – merge, se uită la ceva, se joacă. Toate aceste activităţi verbalizate în limba în care vrem să înveţe îl ajută să achiziţioneze acel limbaj”, pedagog A. Stănculescu.

Totuşi, metodele de învăţare diferă de la copil la copil, în funcţie de particularităţile de dezvoltarea ale fiecăruia şi de ritmul propriu de învăţare.

Metodele trebuie să fie personalizate, pentru ca cel mic să atingă nivelul de cunoştinţe necesar fără ca acest lucru să însemne o oboseală prea mare din partea sa. Unii copii sunt mai avantajaţi în învăţare prin susţinerea conversaţiilor, alţii prin repetarea expunerii unor imagini concomitent cu verbalizarea”

„De aceea, la această vârstă, la 3-4 ani, învăţarea este cea mai indicată prin joc ca metodă de predare-învăţare. Jocurile didactice sunt jocuri cu reguli în care domină strategii intelectuale”

„Jocurile, cântecele reprezintă o metodă bună de învăţare, pentru că cei mici nu au răbdare să stea pe scaun şi să li se predea o lecţie”

Atenţia voluntară creşte de la 12-14 minute până la 45-50 minute în joc, audiţii, vizionare de diafilme, teatru de copii”, spune Izsak.La copilul şcolar mic se utilizează forme de învăţare simple bazate pe solicitările memoriei. Sunt mai active formulele legate de impresionabilitate şi atractivitate (culoare, imagine).

Specialiştii nu sunt însă de acord cu învăţarea de la televizor sau cu ajutorul CD-urilor, pe care le văd nişte metode statice.  TV -ul şi CD-urile „leneşesc” neuronii

“Televizorul şi CD-urile sunt o activitate statică, la fel ca şi calculatorul. Aceasta este o activitate pasivă de învăţare, dar copilul devine sedentar şi neuronii care ar trebui să lucreze activ pentru învăţare stau, pe când, în jocuri, copiii sunt activi, devin implicaţi”, psiholog A. Ivan.
