SELF MANAGEMNT

All children display undesirable behavior at some time. The ability to manage young children’s behavior in a positive manner is often challenging and complex; however, the effective guidance of young children requires a patient and nurturing care giver who understands the tasks of children at various ages, is aware that normal young children are naturally curious, active and impulsive, and recognizes that the main goals of positive management are to assist children to develop responsibility, to learn and develop skills to control themselves, and to take responsibility for their own behavior.
• The skill to positively manage young children often requires that care givers/providers make some important shifts in their thinking about managing children. Some of these shifts in thinking and practice are:
• Set long term goals for the children in our care beyond the short term goal of keeping peace – Long term goals of helping children to develop responsibility for their own behavior.
• Recognize that a change in a child’s behavior usually occurs when there is a change in the care giver/provider’s behavior or practice.
• Avoid engaging in power plays, struggles with children -YOU WILL LOSE AND SO WILL THE CHILD.
• Recognize that positive attitudes of encouragement, understanding, and respect by the care giver are the basic conditions for desirable behavior in children – Avoid the use of threats, put-downs, embarrassing statements, and criticisms to control children’s behavior.
• Keep in mind that children are social beings who have a need to belong and feel significant and important – Provide/create opportunities for children to share, to be independent, to be recognized, to receive praise, and to be involved in chores.
• Keep in mind that children are decision-makers – Create an environment where children are encouraged to make choices and are actively involved in planning activities for the day.
• Recognize that acting out behavior in young children is often related to their language development – Young children’s language capacity assists them to express their needs. Children may feel and express frustration when they have not yet developed the language to effectively communicate their wants and needs.

FOREIGN LANGUAGE SKILLS

In his book Style (Cassell, 1955), Lucas offered the following basic principles to “shorten that painful process” of learning how to write better.
Brevity
It is bad manners to waste [the reader’s] time. Therefore brevity first, then, clarity.
Clarity
It is bad manners to give [readers] needless trouble. Therefore clarity. . . . And how is clarity to be achieved? Mainly by taking trouble and by writing to serve people rather than to impress them.
Communication
The social purpose of language is communication–to inform, misinform, or otherwise influence our fellows. . . . Communication [is] more difficult than we may think. We are all serving life sentences of solitary confinement within our bodies; like prisoners, we have, as it were, to tap in awkward code to our fellow men in their neighboring cells.
Emphasis
Just as the art of war largely consists of deploying the strongest forces at the most important points, so the art of writing depends a good deal on putting the strongest words in the most important places.. One of the most important things, to my mind, in English style is word-order word.
Honesty
As the police put it, anything you say may be used as evidence against you. If handwriting reveals character, writing reveals it still more. You cannot fool all your judges all the time. Most style is not honest enough. Easy to say, but hard to practice. A writer may take to long words, as young men to beards–to impress. But long words, like long beards, are often the badge of charlatans. Or a writer may cultivate the obscure, to seem profound. But even carefully muddied puddles are soon fathomed.

BECOME A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER

Are you new to nature photography? Feeling a little unsure of how to get started in your quest to make beautiful images? If you want to consistently make good photos, there is a lot to learn. Fortunately, there are a tremendous number of resources out there to help you, but these can also be overwhelming to sort through. Here is an overview of the topics you will need to learn about from a nature perspective, and some guidance on the different resources available.

Let me start with a very basic statement. There is a difference between making a photo and taking a snapshot. Maybe it’s because most of us have had access to a camera for taking family snapshots since we were young, that it can take a while before that realization and transformation occurs (and sometimes it never does!). Making good photos is a “whole brain” experience. A technically perfect (left brain) image can still be unappealing if the artistic part is overlooked. But to achieve your vision (right brain) you need to know how to make the tools work. And it takes time to thoughtfully put all of it together to make the photo. Simply pointing and clicking will rarely get you there.

POETRY COURSE

Phonics is a branch of linguistics where the sounds and physical properties of human speech sounds are studied. Phonics reading is highly essential in every child education. It is not uncommon to find parents who question the importance of phonics reading in the education of their children. Such parents believe that children will naturally master the different sounds of human speech since the ability to use language is innate in every human being. Their view may look plausible but they are not actually correct.

Indeed, phonics reading is very important in the education of children. The report of National Reading Panel indicates that teaching children phonics will help them in many ways in life. In the first instance, phonics reading is very important in helping children to learn how to spell words. It will be impossible for a person to spell any word correctly if the person is not able to recognize the sounds of the letters used in forming the words. When a child is taught phonics, the child will be able to recognize sounds in words and will be able to spell them correctly.

Children have problem in reading because they are not able to recognize the sounds of the letters of the alphabet in the words they read. Phonics reading will help children to recognize and associate sounds of the letters of the alphabet in the word they read. This will help them to improve in their reading skills and efficiency. In other words, it will be difficult for a child to improve in his reading skills if the teaching of phonics is removed from their curriculum.

Phonics reading helps also to increase a child’s fluency in reading. Fluency in this context is not limited to reading fast. It also means reading text accurately. When a child is taught phonics properly, the child will find reading easy. The child will not only read accurately but also quickly. Reading quick and correctly is another benefits of phonics reading.

IMPRESSIONIST

Disappointed by their lack of success at official exhibitions, though not to an extent for them to give up, these artists decided to proceed without the Salon. They found their own ways to develop and exhibit their work. It may not have been as effective or promotional as incorporating with the Salon but it was a start.

In 1874, a group of artists got together and mounted their own exhibition as an alternative to the Salon. Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Berthe Morisot, Paul Cezanne, Edgar Degas and Alfred Sisley were all part of this group. The struggle to obtain recognition among the group was challenging. The exhibit itself was not a success, but It was an important first step: the first independent group show of Impressionists art.

 

Though it may sound like the groups progress was failure and nothing good came about their exhibit, not all responses to the Impressionists were negative. Some critics liked their fresh approach to painting and wrote favorable reviews about their bizarre yet radical approach to their unique way of art.

Confidence of the Artist’s

Despite the criticism they received, the Impressionists were not distracted from their course. Their ambitions were to create art which they loved and created them with their very own unique styles that others found somewhat insulting. Their focus and Goals were to have Impressionism to be known, promoted and influenced to others to see a whole new side of art.
