We had a great summer at the Club de Niños y Niñas de Tecamac y Ecatepec!
The last two months have been very productive and fun. We had our first summer course in which boys and girls used their time to perform different activities that allowed them to learn about different areas whilst forming new friendships. Our Boys and Girls were very active during the summer and are now motivated to return to school and their daily activities with great enthusiasm and energy.
Summer Art Program
Creativity is a skill that must be encouraged in the community. The innate talent of Boys and Girls surfaced in surprising ways in the workshops of Create & Express, and LiberArte, programs that through painting, handcrafts, drawing and dance allowed Boys and Girls to explore their imagination and express themselves through art.
From crafts with recycled materials to plays, all participants were able to use their mind and body to recognize their emotions, feelings and desires. Everyone stood out in different workshops and we are proud to say that they boosted their social skills by being in constant contact with their classmates.
Kids Kung Fu: Focus, Self-Defense, Goal-Setting, Confidence
Kung fu has to do with the physical and mental skills, the Boys and Girls learned that this sport is based on Chinese philosophy and is about improving wisdom, so while they were doing the movements well, they also behaved respectfully with the space and other people.
The Boys and Girls registred in this workshop showed a great ability to learn quickly and they showed great interest in continueing to learn. Although fluid movements are complicated at first, all the Boys and Girls were interested in improving their skills and that helped them move forward during the workshop. Likewise, they were able to create a greater bond with their peers by performing group activities that involved following and guiding others.
Green Classroom Ideas for Environmentally Conscious Learning
By creating objects with recycled materials, Boys and Girls were able to develop their imagination and creativity by making things like lava lamps and robotic hands with cardboard. Everyone showed interest in exploring beyond the workshop and brought ideas from home to do at the Club, so they were always busy creating amazing things they could use in their daily lives.
