We’re very content and satisfied to be wrapping up yet another successful month and have seen some great results from our little ones. Our children have made many advancements and seeing as how we’re at the end of the school year, we’ll now see the final results of all of our teaching thus far.

In the month of July our teachers participated in the second half of our bi-annual training which lasted a week. We were able to learn a lot of different techniques, strategies and new ideas to utilize in the classroom. We were shown different activities pertaining to fine motor skills, something that is very important to the development of age group of kids that we work with. We also learned about how to better manage children with behavioral issues and how to deal with truly difficult cases more effectively.

The highlight of the training however, was how to work with recycled materials. Our teachers experimented with many different ideas on how to use recycled materials in the classroom to teach different subjects. The objective was to raise awareness regarding classroom materials and how we can oftentimes use many items more than once before throwing them way.

Looking at the different pictures, you can see how in the school of Los Izotes in Santo Domingo Xenacoj, our teacher, Lidia Bacajol, is putting the different ideas that we learned in the training into action. If you pay close attention to the pictures, you might notice the different materials that Lidia is using and what their different uses are.

As you can see we’ve been busy with many new activities to help ensure that both teaching and learning can be as fun and effective as possible.
