在小朋友的眼里自信是什么? What is confidence in the little kids’ eyes?

        我们正在一点点的学习小学项目建议学校鼓励的学习态度。照片里的女孩正在为那些态度配图。在她眼里,尊重、创意、自信、容忍、独立、合作、好奇和投入到底是什么样的呢?

        她第一次去上幼儿园的时候,她不开心,她哭了,很害怕见到新的面孔。所以自信对于她来说就是她可以一点儿都不害怕地去学校并且告诉自己“我可以的!”。

We have been learning the PYP attitude little by little. The girl in the photo is drawing pictures for those attitude. What are the respect, creativity, confidence, tolerance, independence, cooperation, curiosity and commitment in her eyes?

when she first went to school for kindergarden, she was unhappy, she was crying, she is fear seeing all the new looks. So confidence for her is that she can go to school with no fear and tell herself “I can do it! “

什么是PYP教育观? What is PYP perspective?

 

很幸运这周参加了学校组织的一次培训,对小学项目和国际文凭价值观有了一定了解。小学项目背后的推动力量事一直秉持的关于国际教育性质的理念。这个项目鼓励世界各地的学生成长为既积极进取又富有同情心的终生学习者,他们理解尽管人与人之间存在着差异,但他人的意见也可能是正确的。他们建议学校鼓励学生表现以下态度:欣赏、投入、合作、创意、好奇心、同理心、热忱、独立性、正直、尊重和宽容。在二年级,学生目前已经在学习其中的一些态度了。老师通常会指引学生自己思考这些态度是什么,这对于学生们真正理解其含义以及怎样在课堂中表现出这些态度是非常有帮助的。

I luckily got a training from LILA (Forest Lake International Academy) this week, which was very helpful for me to know PYP and IB and their perspective. A driving force behind the PYP is deeply held philosophy about the nature of international education. The programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right. They suggest that school encourage students to have the attitudes like Appreciation, Commitment, Confidence, Cooperation, Creativity, Curiosity, Empathy, Enthusiasm, Independence, Integrity, Respect and Tolerant. In the second grade, students have been learning some of them at the moment. Teachers usually lead students to think what it is by themselves which is very good to help students understand the real meanings and what to do to show those attitudes in the classroom.

 

简介 Introduction

本人王娣,毕业于华中科技大学汉语国际教育硕士专业。曾分别于华中科技大学和中国地质大学(武汉)担任留学生兼职汉语教师。2015年在澳大利亚本迪戈东南中学做志愿者教师一年。目前在明尼苏达州森林湖区语言国际学校(小学部)做汉语志愿者教师。森林湖区语言国际学校是一所西班牙语和汉语普通话沉浸式的半公立半私立学校,虽相对于西班牙语沉浸式项目来说,该校的汉语沉浸式算是新兴项目,但它也已有六年历史,沉浸式项目的老师和学生在课堂上只可用目标语交流和学习,即用目标语讲解和传授目标语,同时根据不同年级要求兼授数学和英语。本人现担任的是该校二年级的助教,辅助班主任的课堂教学和管理工作。此博客将用于记录日常教学总结和心得,分享在教学过程中发生的趣事,希望对大家有帮助。

开学一个月了,这个月的重点在于制定并反复强调课堂规定和每天程序,同时复习一年级所学汉字和数学加减法。培养良好的阅读习惯和学习态度。我特别惊讶于学生的汉语水平和学习能力。

I am Dee wang, graduated from the University of Science and Technology with Master of Teaching Chinese to Speakers of Other Languages (MTCSL)  . I taught Chinese for the International students who studied in the University of Science and Technology and China University of Geosciences for half a year and got one-year experience for working at Bendigo South East College of Australia as a volunteer Chinese teacher. I am doing a language ambassador job at Forest International Language Academy (Elementary Campus). It is a semi-public school which runs Spanish and Chinese Immersion Program. Compared to the Spanish Immersion program, Chinese one is totally new with six-year history. Teachers and students who are involved in the Immersion program must speak the aim language, that is, teachers must explain the aim language and sometimes maths and English by the aim language. I am working with the second grade at the moment, helping the classroom teacher with teaching and management. This blog is for recording the conclusions and reflections  from the class and sharing the interesting anecdotes happened in the classroom. I hope it will be helpful.

In this month, we focused on the classroom rules and daily routines, reviewed the Chinese characters and mathematical addition and subtraction of the first grade, while training students to form a good reading habit and get a optimistic study attitude. I was so amazed by the students’ Chinese level and the ability of study.
