Day 4: Super babies, ready to fly!

DAY 4: 宝贝超人,飞向蓝天!

Day 4: Super babies, ready to fly!

今天是志愿者们来到长沙小牛津第二幼儿园的第四天,也是CPLA宝贝是超人活动的最后一天。不知不觉中我们的每一个志愿者都已经和孩子们建立了深刻的友谊,同时我们每个板块的课程也都进入了尾声。

Today is the fourth day that we have been here, which is also the last day of our summer project the “Super Baby”. All of our volunteers developed a good friendships with the children unconsciously as time went by. At the same time, all of the lectures and materials are approaching ending to the end.

这三天的教学过程中,我们的成员和志愿者通过身体认知、自我保护和健康营养这三个板块让小朋友们在愉悦的学习氛围下多方面地增长了知识。和我们最初的期待一样,这些年龄只有四五岁的小宝贝们都最终进阶变身成为了智慧与勇气并存的小超人!

During these three days, CPLAers on present and volunteers have helped the children to enrich their knowledge about nutrition and health, body recognition and self protection under a joyful learning atmosphere. These children aged between of four or and five will become the “super babies” with wisdoms and courages as we expected.

作为本次活动的负责人之一,我不仅仅见证了长沙小牛津第二幼儿园宝贝们的成长,也目睹了CPLA 本次活动志愿者们的热情和努力。最让我印象深刻的是,我们本次活动的成员和志愿者们为了让课程更加丰富更加专业,每天在学校上完课都会根据当天的上课情况召开紧急会议来及时地调整教案,有时候回到酒店大家也会聚在一起讨论到深夜。

As one of the accounts for this summer project, I didn’t only witness what those young students have accomplished in these few days, but also the efforts and passions our volunteers and CPLAers have showed. What impressed me the most was that in order to make our classes more various and professional, our crew would have meetings right away based on what happened on that day and to adjust teaching methods, sometimes we stayed late at night in the hotel.

在这期间,我们也遇到了大大小小的问题和困难,但大家都始终团结一致,共同面对突发的各种状况,同时,幼儿园的老师们也给到了我们很大的帮助。

During this project, there were difficulties and issues, but everyone had always been united to face the sudden situation, and the teachers of the kindergarten also provided us a lot of help.

对我们来说,这次的宝贝是超人活动给了我们一次和小朋友们相处的机会,也让我懂得了团队合作的重要性。我相信,对于每一个志愿者来说,这都是一次意义非凡的历练,而对于CPLA而言,这次活动让我们这个集体变得更团结、更有凝聚力。

The project “Super baby” gave us an opportunity to get along with the children and made me understand the importance of teamwork as well. I believe this is an extraordinary experience for every volunteer, whereas for CPLA, it has also made us more united and cohesive.

在这里,CPLA 要衷心感谢各位长沙小牛津第二幼儿园的领导们和老师们!过去一周的时间,我们真心的感谢园方对我们本次活动的准备与付出!CPLA全体成员及宝贝是超人活动志愿者祝长沙小牛津幼儿园越办越好,也祝长沙小牛津第二幼儿园的小朋友们天天开心,健康成长!

Here, CPLA would like to sincerely thank all the school executives and teachers of Changsha Small Oxford Kindergarten for your great help. We truly appreciate all the work that you have done for the “Super babies”! CPLA members and volunteers wish Changsha Small Oxford Kindergarten will be well, and wish all the children be happy and healthy!

 

宝贝超人们,

现在听我的口令,

你们可以起飞啦!

All the Super babies,

Listen up!

Go! Take off now!

Day 2: Super babies becoming

DAY 2: 宝贝超人初长成

Day 2: Super babies becoming

 

迎着清晨的阳光与微风,我们踏进了长沙小牛津第二幼儿园,开始了CPLA宝贝是超人第一天正式的授课环节。走进幼儿园的我们,心情既兴奋,又激动;有忐忑,也有期待。上午9点整,教室里便传来了阵阵音乐声与稚嫩的童声,老师们也都亲切地站在门口迎接我们的到来。

Along with the morning sunrise and soft breeze, we stepped into the small Oxford Kindergarten and started the official teaching session of the “Super baby”. When we walked into the kindergarten, we had expectations yet worries and excitements At 9 o’clock in the morning, music started playing, and children started to come into the class. Teachers stood cordially at the door and welcomed us.

 

第一天与小朋友们上身体认知课难免有点拘谨,但是小朋友们都十分热情地欢迎远道而来的哥哥姐姐们,这让我们与小朋友相处的时候越来越放得开。本以为我们课程的内容会比较枯燥或者让小朋友们觉得害羞,但出乎我们意料的是,课堂的效果意外地好。我们先提了一系列关于区别男孩女孩的特征的问题,孩子们回答得十分踊跃,答案从身体部位到行为习惯都涉及到了,这让我们的第一课进行得十分顺利。

On the first day, it was inevitable that the physical cognitive lessons made us feel a bit cautious, but the kids were enthusiastic to welcome the older brothers and sisters from afar, which made us feel less nervous. I thought that the content of our course would be boring and the children would be shy, but surprisingly, the performance was unexpectedly good. We first asked a series of questions about the physical characteristics of boys and girls, and the children responded enthusiastically. The answers went even beyond from body parts to behavioral habits. The interactions and cooperations made our first lesson go smoothly.

接着我们给小朋友讲了男生女生的隐私部位以及自我保护的相关知识,还给小朋友一张有穿着背心的小男孩小女孩的图画和贴纸,他们都用贴纸把课上讲的需要保护的部位都贴上了。看到小朋友们因为我们这节课,有了一点保护自己的意识,很有成就感。

Then we introduced privacy body parts to the young students, and educated them how to protect themselves. We also gave the children a picture of a little boy and girl wearing vests. We told them to use stickers to hide the privacy parts that need to be protected. Seeing that the children become aware of self-protecting because of our curriculum, we all felt a sense of accomplishment.

课后幼儿园的老师们对我们的上课形式提出了很多有用的建议,帮助我们提高课堂效率和更好地与小朋友们相处,从这之中我们学习到了很多。小朋友们稚嫩的声音中洋溢着蓬勃的朝气,他们五彩斑斓同时也无比纯净的心灵散发着希望的光芒。希望我们的活动能够为他们多撑起一把保护伞,让他们快快乐乐地成长。

After class, the kindergarten teachers gave us a lot of useful suggestions for our class, which helped us to spend class time more efficiently and better ways to communicate with children. We have learned a lot from them. The young voices of the children were full of vigor and vitality. Their voices seemed to be colorful, and we could see on them that the pure innocent souls radiate the light of hope. I hope that our activities will provide them useful information, just like an umbrella, to protect them and let them grow up happily.

自我保护板块的课堂上,每一个小朋友都非常积极地参与我们的活动和小游戏。在课上,我们的志愿者小老师们和小朋友们进行了有趣生动的情景模拟,小朋友们的参与度也都很高,回答问题也都很积极。随后,小老师们组织了小朋友们进行了讨论环节,小朋友们和自己的同学一起总结了自己这节课学的内容。

In the self-protection section, every child was very interactive in our activities and games. During the class, our volunteer teachers and children performed interesting and vivid scenarios, and the children’s participation was very high, especially when they answer teacher’s questions. Later, the young teachers organized the children to have a discussion sessions, and we let the children summed up the content of their own lessons.

通过我们的课堂活动,小朋友们学习到了不应该和陌生人随便说话,不随便回答陌生人的问题,不随便吃陌生人递过来的东西一系列自我保护的小知识和小技能。虽然志愿者小老师们都比较辛苦,但是看到主动配合我们的小朋友,我们还是感到很开心,很满足。

Through our class activities, young students learned that they should not talk with strangers or answer strangers’ questions casually, and they should not receive food/drinks that strangers hand over. They have also learned self-protected knowledge and skills. Although being a teacher was new and hard, we felt genuinely happy and satisfied to see children were actively cooperating with us.

在第一天的教学活动里,我们营养健康的志愿者生动形象的向孩子们介绍了有关食物金字塔的知识,通过播放动画片和开展食物涂色游戏,孩子们初步懂得了肉蛋奶类、果蔬和碳水化合物的区别,知道要合理的搭配膳食。

On the first day, our volunteers introduced “food pyramid” which is about nutrition balance and health to the young students. We played animation videos and color-filling games to educate them the differences between food categories like proteins, vegetables, fruit, and carbs and how to balance daily meals.

“尤其让我印象深刻的是当小朋友们看到我们精心准备的食物模型的时候,教室一下子沸腾了,孩子们争先恐后的伸出自己稚嫩的小手,他们期盼的目光和纯洁的笑容也融化了志愿者们的心。”再热再累对于我们志愿者来说都是值得的。更让我们感动的是,我们让孩子们挑选食物模型后,他们可以用所学到的知识为爸爸妈妈设计营养丰富的膳食。有的小朋友以前不爱吃蔬菜,或者爱吃糖果奶油,都主动告诉志愿者们将来要多吃营养健康的食物。

“What impressed me was that when those children saw the food models that we have prepared for them. Suddenly it was like the classroom was full of energy and excitement. They were all very excited and couldn’t wait to have fun with it.” Their expectations and smiles meant a lot to the volunteers, and they almost felt they are melt by those smiles faces. After we let young students pick food models, we wished they could use what they learned to design meals for their parents. Some of them didn’t like eating vegetables at all and some of them loved candies, but after the class, they told our volunteers that they would have more healthy food.

 

怀着满满的幸福和成就感,我们结束了今天的教学任务。

我们坚信我们的努力和付出,将来一定会在这些孩子的身上体现出来!

With all the happiness and sense of achievement, we finished our classes today. We believe that our effort will make influences on these kids positively someday in the future.

The Objectives Of CPLA Love Journey–The Forgotten Children

The aim of this project is to empower the “Left-Behind Children” through an educational extra-curriculum in this summer, to mitigate the effect on the absence of parents by creating one to one mentorship. The Chinese Philanthropy Leadership Association (CPLA) will provide mentor and other kinds of help to those children, at the meantime, to enrich Left-Behind Children’s life experiences in summer. In addition, by publicizing the problem, CPLA also hopes to educate the public about the unique group, and raise the awareness on the Left Behind children both in China and the U.S.

CPLA will achieve two main goals by helping Left-Behind Children during the project: Firstly, CPLA will help those Left-Behind Children to build their dreams in the seven days’ program. For long term, CPLA will continue to communicate with those children, in order to support them in achieving their dreams. Secondly, through seven days’ period, CPLA will help the Left- Behind Children to improve their psychological behavior, and will strive to cultivate their thoughts. By the end of the project, Left-Behind Children will learn to thank their parents. Moreover, those children will understand the importance of learning, and eventually, they would have a fresh prospective toward their future life.
