What are you bringing into your child’s life?

Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

Dear Readers,

This week’s post has the objective of bringing your reflection on what activities you bring into your child’s life and the consequences of each one of them. My questions are not condemning or supporting any activities, they are questions I raised in the past years before signing my son up for classes.
Karate promises foccus and discipline, but how about the aggressive part of repeatedly exposing children as early as three years old to kicks and punches???
Dance will help body coordination and self esteem. How about girls who are overweight and the classes will bring a low self esteem issue which shouldn’t be present in her life until at least pre teen years???
Sports bring competitive spirit and they are a great exercise. How about children who don’t like to run, are not coordinated enough to follow games and play and who could care less about what’s going in the field and feel left out by the other children who excel in sports???
Musical Instruments are a great way to bring concentration and develop brain connections. How about children who are tone death or who can’t play anything after trying one song for three months?
Foreign languages are great to stimulate brain connections, promoting early reading, reasoning among other skills. How about children who have speech impairments or whose parents don’t speak the language and can’t help them develop them at home? It is proven that foreign languages will not harm and sometimes help speech impairments and home input can be substituted by effective use of the foreign language class to build skills.
Science experiments with complex concepts…..really???No comment on that.
I don’t think I have all the answers, but my questions hopefully will help guide your own questions which should be confronted with your child’s unique personality and abilities to promote enrichment time as fun, educational and above all, HAPPY TIME!

Easter and Spanish

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Dear Readers,

A lot of homeschooling parents and teachers e-mailed us, asking  for materials to use on Easter. I have couple ideas to share, which can be used in any foreign language class:

1)Plastic egg decoration- children will glue decorations they colored on the eggs and you will review or teach Spanish colors while doing that

2)Hide and seek, children will take turn counting(numbers) and try to find students.

3)Word egg hunt- I hide eggs and words/candy seeing during the month, they will hunt for eggs, but they will only get the candy if they can tell me what that word is.

4)I also use the song Los Pollitos

5) We make baskets, chicks as crafts

6) We do an animal class with Easter related animals, they will toss them into a basket, saying their names.

Feel free to contact me for more ideas! Above all, let’s help children have fun with a foreign language!

Free Spanish Story Time in South Jersey

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

Dear Members,

We’re proud to announce that we will be offering a free Spanish story time for children 2-6 years old at our West Deptford location this Saturday, July 18th, 9:30am. Children will hear the story, do a craft and sing a song.  The story time will bring the amazing world of Spanish to children, giving them the exposure to a foreign language in a fun way!

We usually reduce the numbers of classes in the summer due to my schedule, so parents asked for a little more Spanish time for their littles and we listened! The event is free!

We look forward to seeing you there. CK Translations LLC – 1007 Mantua Pike S# 1 West Deptford, NJ 08096 almost in front of the new LA Fitness on R. 45.

Spring in Portuguese

Monday, April 20th, 2009

A lot of the parents which come from families or are Brazilian have asked me to post vocabulary and suggestion of activities on different topics. This is the first of a series.

Spring Vocabulary:

Spring – primavera

Flower – flor

Spring colors- green – verde, purple- roxo pink- rosa, blue- azul, yellow- amarelo



Bee- abelha – video with spring scenes in Rio

Coloring Page:

My favorite spring song: O Barquinho – Tom Jobim – This song always reminds me of spring in Brazil, but I don’t have a recording to offer to readers to check it out. Maybe in a Brazilian search engine.

Suggestion on activities:

1)Take your child to a garden or your backyard and show him/her the flowers, grass and bring the vocabulary on this list to life.

2)There is a children’s lullaby- O cravo brigou com a rosa….very nice, will put your child in a spring mood, right before bed: My son loves this song….the hard part was explain the flower names to him….cravo…..

If you are teaching your child how to read in Portuguese, spring vocabulary is great for asking the child to read the flower names, for example.

For more suggestions, information, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

I strongly advocate for introducing a second and many foreign language to children at early age, so it will be my pleasure to give any readers, any information to help them introduce or bring foreign languages to children.

Next posting will give some information on colors.

I hope you enjoyed it.

Tell us what you think!
