To fully achieve the pre-school
Seeking to address the largest possible number of issues that are of interest to teachers and parents of children under pre-school age, OMEP – World Organization. Education Preschool-Brazil-Sao Paulo. Will conduct the II Brazilian Congress of Pre-School Education. What will be preparatory of the World Preschool Education Congress to be held in Warsaw, next year. Will promote parallel to X Week of Studies for Teachers and first Cycle of studies for Parents.
Appear on the agenda of the courses to the X Week Studies for Teachers, among others, the following: “The Health Preschool Child,” with the professor Dinah Sgueglia Duarte de Oliveira, and “Math through Music”, with professor Nereide Schilaro ..
Assuming that the healthy children are in the school. But that there are certain problems that the mother can not see and that a smart teacher can detect when she perform a preventive work. Professor Dinah Sgueglia Duarte de Oliveira will give a course focusing the need to know through observation when a certain disease can affect a child. The action of the teacher will be all in the area of observation. The initial referral of the measures that should be adopted when a preventive treatment becomes necessary, explains Prof. “Dinah Oliveira Therefore, her course will be divided into three phases..: First, the attempt to educate the teacher of its oversight role of the health of the student. As he enters the healthy school and must be returned to same conditions. Or better yet, show what the teacher can do in cases of accidents occurring in schools. And the measures that can prevent even the ordinary accidents that can happen, as an example, see if there are holes in playgrounds, broken glass or blunt objects and other things that favor falls.And finally, reinforce the need for the teachers to be vigilant. And by observing, to control when the weather conditions, children’s meeting, may increase the incidence of diseases such as mumps, measles, chicken pox, etc. In these cases, the control is done through vaccination campaigns and vaccines revalidation. All these diseases are preventable, and since the teacher is alert, they can, regardless of the parents of the student, notice when the first symptoms are present. But for that she should be informed enough about these symptoms.
The need for the teacher to take courses like the one that will be taught during the II Brazilian Congress of Pre-School Education. Relates to the fact that it does not receive during their training, guidance on school health issues, especially the dedicated to the work of prevention, says Dinah Oliveira. Recalling that the health care for pre-school, like training, is linked to notions of hygiene. Dinah de Oliveira recalls once again the reason the teacher must know the ways how to prevent gear mechanisms of a disease can be detected and prevented from continuing its course. The continuous observation of the teacher, as the child’s behavior (turbulent), aspect physical, and as time adopt remedial measures. The teacher performance can be extended via observation, not just the attitudes that should be observed in school, but also guide parents. The focus should be given to children’s health and how to preserve it. Surveillance as the child’s skin color, their behavior and performance, your posture, are just some of the points on which teachers can act.
THE NUMBERS CHANTED
Using musical instruments such as the piano and in most cases, the guitar, tambourines, rattles and drums, the Prof. Nereide Schilaro will teach mathematics to children of the kindergarten. The course will be taught to other teachers for five days. In the II Brazilian Congress of Pre-School Education aims to demonstrate how mathematics can become a pleasant matter to be seen by both the teacher and the student. Through the method that she developed to combine the music to mathematics, Nereide Schilaro produces all the programming of pre-school, fully achieving its objectives, namely, the logical-mathematical reasoning is the learning enjoyable.
Nereide Schilaro taught five years ago. She graduated in Mathematics, Music Pedagogy, Design, and Physics. The development of your method started with the observation that made about the behavior of her students regarding learning of mathematics. And how they saw the matter, around which there is a prejudice that math is difficult and problematic, and natural disposition, which has most children, to learn music. She also says that music is so hard to teach as mathematics, as it (music) is an artistic expression of mathematics.
Using music and drama and inventing games with mathematical information Nereide Schilaro teaches children from to kinder garden, with a confrontational language, small-large, thick-thin. Geometric figures formed by children, that is, for example, a set union, a set intersection, etc. During her classes, she also uses body language, dramatization, to say what is a union set by representing, for example, a hospital. All this accompanied by lyrics, music, and instruments.
To fully achieve the child, the method begins with the exploration of the natural environment of the child, The home, school, classmates, etc.
Saying that the child likes to represent, and that we must make good use of this potential, in addition to give what the child expects. Nereide Schilaro waiting, with its course, that many children are not going to have the problems that are still common, about mathematics.
