Mariel Mata 3B: cantautora


Esta semana, Mariel nos sorprendió con una bella canción titulada "Best Friends", en la cual, se habla del valor de la amistad y de los buenos momentos que pasa ella junto a sus mejores amigas: Alejandra, Fiorella, Rafaela y Mía.

Compañeros del mismo nivel, decidieron darle armonía y acompañamiento a la canción de Mariel. Juan Pablo Sánchez interpretó el cajón peruano y Elena Antillón se sumó al canto. En las introducciones e intermedios, contamos con las bellas melodías de la flauta traversa a cargo de la talentosa Alejandra Lazo.

¿Será acaso, el comienzo de un Ensamble infantil SEK?

¡Luces, cámara, acción!

En la clase de español, los estudiantes de quinto grado realizaron un trabajo con el App iMovie. Escogieron un cuento del libro de Carmen Lyra (1887-1949): “Cuentos de mi tía Panchita”, y realizaron un corto del mismo.

Los alumnos mostraron habilidades de actuación, grabación, uso adecuado del vestuario y un gran compromiso. Se trabajaron áreas como expresión oral y corporal, dominio escénico y trabajo en equipo. Todos disfrutaron mucho cada parte del proceso.

Los niños y la lectura

“Caperucita Roja”, ”Cenicienta”, “El Pancito que echó a correr”, son títulos de cuentos infantiles que me contaban cuando era niña. Los cuentos nos devuelven a una época maravillosa en la vida, mezcla de fantasía y sueños: la infancia.

Los adultos somos los encargados de maravillar a los niños con los libros de cuentos y ayudarles a que descubran el mundo sorprendente que guarda la lectura. Dar a los niños la posibilidad de entrar al mundo mágico de la lectura, abre espacios gratificantes, envueltos en afectividad y cargados de conocimientos.

Proyecto Bee-Bot

El proyecto de Robótica Educativa Bee-Bot, ha sido implementado en las clases de kínder y preescolar con un éxito impresionante por parte de los niños y de las docentes.

Los estudiantes están impresionados al aprender sobre programación de robots utilizando comandos por medio de botones en cada robot.

Las actividades plantean retos de programación, análisis y pensamientos lógico-matemático, que capturan toda la atención de los niños.

Despertamos un sano espíritu competitivo entre los equipos para lograr alcanzar los objetivos planteados.

En resumen, estamos iniciando una aventura tecnológica que no tiene fin.

Year 5 and 6 outing to the Science Centre

If we had to describe the Science outing in one word, we would say: “Fun!"

The learners were actively involved in all the activities! They started off by exploring different exhibits on the floor then they had an excellent team building activity!

The learners also listened to an educational speech about space and space shuttles. To make rocket launches more understandable for the learners they had to build their own rockets in pairs with a rope, a straw and a balloon.

After lunch the learners explored the reflection of light! They really enjoyed this activity when observing the outside of the building through a hole made in the roof. Every movement outside reflected in a very dark room on a white table. It was just as some of them said “Cool!"

The outing ended with a magical science show with very exciting experiments like explosions, multiplying foam, interesting sounds from buckets and pool pipes, air compression experiments, just to name a few. It was truly a fun filled day!

PYP 5- Silk Road Math

PYP5 is inquiring into their unit on Exploration. They are learning about early world exploration, including the Silk Road, navigation, Native Americans, and explorers from Leif Erikson and Marco Polo to Conquistadors Hernando Cortes and Francisco Pizarro. In math we are focusing on decimals. The students worked in groups to conduct research projects on the five regions of the Silk Road including: Mediterranean Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, South Asia, and China. They created products to sell based on their region and what would have been traded during the 1200's to 1400's. Then they created their own Silk Road Festival, where they bought and sold goods, while using their knowledge of decimals to find totals and tax on the items. We turned it into a game for points. Congratulations to Ivan (1st place), Melak (2nd place), and Oscar (3rd place)! What a creative way to practice our skills and enhance our unit of inquiry!

Learn Differently to Think Differently

The easiest way for children to learn is playing and having fun. It really helps teachers to achieve their goals. Having different areas in the classroom are a good way to improve children´s skills like reading and writing as well as developing team work. This way of learning is different and motivates students to continue playing and learning. First graders had the opportunity to review some vocabulary and phonetic sounds studied through the year. They really enjoyed it.

Third Graders Final Speech


Last week, third graders had their final speech. They had to present their favorite holiday or celebration during 5 minutes. They talked about traditional food, clothes, house decorations, and other aspects included during the celebration. They had a lot of fun and learnt new things of different celebrations around the world.

Discovering Magnetism!

During these days, second graders have been studying how different kinds of energy are used every day, even though we do not realize that interesting fact. For children, discovering magnetism is a wonderful experience. Our second grades are learning that magnets have a force that attract metal objects.

Students were trying different types of materials like paper, wood, glass, and metal objects. At  the end of the activity the experience was meaningful and funny.

Subasta de arte

Nuestros estudiantes de cuarto grado, aprenden sobre el mercado del arte internacional por medio de la simulación de una subasta. En ésta, ellos tenían la posibilidad de pujar por obras pictóricas y escultóricas que han roto récords de venta a nivel mundial.
