Spring is Coming!

A primavera está chegando e com ela é hora de aprender sobre insetos e flores.


Nesse mês teremos diversas atividades envolvendo: dramatizações, artesanato, experimentos científicos, pesquisas, músicas, histórias com leitura e interpretação sobre a vida de insetos.

Vocês podem pensar que isso é coisa simples, mas existem inúmeras atividades relacionadas aos insetos como: diferentes tipos de patas, assas, tarefas e funções no meio ambiente, metamorfose, como se alimentam e como acontece a polinização.

O mesmo podemos dizer sobre as flores: parte das flores, suas cores, suas épocas, perfumes e porque atraem aos insetos.

Ao longo das semanas, iremos postando fotos sobre as atividades e de como estas foram desenvolvidas.

Portanto, como vocês podem ver, teremos muita coisa interessante para fazer durante essa estação e muitos livros bacanas para lermos e aprendermos mais sobre esse mundo fantástico dos insetos e flores!

Pais e Amigos podem ajudar recolhendo informações sobre o tema como: fotos, cartazes, brinquedos, fantoches, etc e enviando-as nos dias de aula.

Obrigada e Feliz Primavera a todos vocês.

Spring is coming and it is time to learn about insects and flowers.

This month we will have several activities involving: drama, crafts, science experiments, research, music, reading and interpreting stories about the life of insects.

You may think this is a simple thing, but there are numerous activities related to insects such as different types of legs, wings, tasks and functions in the environment, metamorphosis, how they eat and how pollination happens.

The same can be said about the flowers: part of flowers, their colors, their times, their perfumes, and why to attract insects.

Over the weeks, we will be posting photos on the activities and how they were developed.

So as you can see, we have lots of interesting things to do during this season and many cool books to read and learn more about this amazing world of insects and flowers!

Parents and friends can help by collecting information on the subject as: photos, posters, toys, puppets, etc. and sending them on school days.

Thanks and Happy Spring to all of you.


Are you sad or lonely? Find 8 solutions!

Hera are some ideas I have just found on Twitter from Sue Ellson by” The Tiny Buda”. I think they are very true and helpful. I hope you´ll like them.

People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.” ~Joseph F. Newton

1. Connect through sports, hobbies or interests.

.Meet likeminded people who share something that you also love. They will make time for you; other people already have full calendars.

2. Borrow or adopt a dog and go walking.

People talk to people with dogs.

3. Talk to senior citizens.

They have plenty of wisdom, time, and advice that they can share. By listening, you are also validating them as well as yourself.

4. Expect it to be challenging.

It may be difficult for you, but don’t give up. Keep going but start with the easiest options first.

5. Find out why you feel lonely. 

Perhaps there is some bitterness, resentment, or guilt that you are carrying around. It is time to forgive and forget.

6. Celebrate

Develop new routines and rituals to celebrate special occasions and reward your new healthy behaviors.

7. Be brave.

It takes courage and persistence to overcome your bad habits—but it all starts with you, not someone else. Ask for help, seek some guidance, but take full responsibility for your happiness.

8. Dream big.

Visualize what you want in the future and watch it materialize. Keep your vision sharp and clear.

Can you see how none of these suggest finding a partner or fixing the one you have? Isn’t that liberating? By connecting through various people, activities, or regular commitments, you are no longer dependent on a partner to complete you or help you overcome your feelings of loneliness.

And you may just find that when you are no longer lonely, you will be happy—with or without a partner.
