Here we see Cristian working
The phrase "Don't lower the goal, increase the effort" I believe is fulfilled in the work that we have all managed to achieve this year. That's right, despite the current situation we continue to work with great enthusiasm and effort. Fundamental qualities both to do our work and to transmit it to our children.
During this year we have had children who have surprised us a lot, because their performance has been noted. So in this report I want to share with you two very interesting stories of children who have worked so hard during the year to get to where they are.
In one of the schools we have in Patzicía, there is Elba. A very enthusiastic and hard-working teacher, who works double-shift taking care of preschool children in the morning and in the afternoon helping elementary school children between 7 and 12 years old, who need reinforcement.
Among the preschool children is Cristian, 5 years old. A very diligent child, who despite having difficulties in the pronunciation of words at first, had a very limited vocabulary and it was difficult for him to retain new knowledge; made significant progress this year. The truth is all this is due to the teamwork between the teacher and Cristian's mother, she was always aware of the tasks. In addition, she took the role of teacher at home very seriously, as she told stories, played games and dynamics so that her children better understand the homework that the teachers sent them. She constantly asked for ideas and suggestions on how she could teach a certain topic. It also supported the program that the Ministry of Education of our country "I learn at home", which was broadcast on television. Cristian complied with doing all the tasks and activities that his teacher assigned him, that helped him develop certain skills, such as: Improve his vocabulary, have better concentration and retention of concepts, associate number with quantity, improve his fine motor skills, pronounce the sounds of the letters that make up the alphabet among others. Elba says that she is very happy and satisfied with Cristian's results, thanks to the interest, effort and dedication that she and the child's mother showed.
In the afternoon session (extracurricular), we met José; who is in first grade and is 7 years old. It has been difficult for her to retain new knowledge, because reading has been very difficult for him He only has the support of her older siblings, because her parents cannot read. In the personalized visits that Elba made, it was noticed that José was not making progress in his reading and writing, despite the help she received at home. So a plan was devised to support her. Elba looked for ideas and simple activities for her to work at home, but first she explained them to the older siblings, so that later when she taught her brother José, he would understand it better. They also relied on homework assigned to them in public school. And once again, thanks to the dedication, effort and teamwork, José has made progress in his reading and writing, he also performs addition and subtraction. He is very happy because now he can understand what he is learning and is better prepared for next year.
It has certainly not been easy this year, but it has been proven that if we do not give up and strive for what we want, it is very likely that we will obtain very good results.
Well, this has been all for now, I hope to write to you again in the next few days to tell you how we finished the cycle. Once again Thank you for supporting all our donors, we love you very much, greetings and hugs from Guatemala.
