Yesterday Jules Verne School was honored with the "telepresence" of Pedro del Villar, Spanish poet and sensible man who shared his new poem book, titled TRES VECES, TRES LA MAR.

Angelica Antonio from Editorial el Naranjo, Publish house who was in charge of giving live to Pedro´s book was here with us too, even Ana Laura Delgado owner of the Publishing House El Naranjo participated from England,  listening how children and Pedro interacted singing his poems, and enjoying poetry.

We feel very proud of giving our children the opportunity to become more acquainted with this Poetry, since we know that active and significant experiences are real learning.

JVS truly believes that transmedia in education is the way for reaching high brain and cognitive processes, since interaction, amusement, and collaboration are the main ingredients.

It is not about learning concepts as in past years, JVS works to give children more real opportunities to participate in their active learning process, and more important in their personal and social development.

For this, and for your care and time, and for giving us the most precious gift, we will be thankful forever Pedro, our friend!!!

Art Class Power to visualize

Visualizing is the sister to imagination. Visualizing and connecting are very closely related.
When we visualize, the source for the images created from the TEXT

When children learn to visualize while they are reading:

* They are using the words they hear or read in a text to create VISUAL IMAGES or "movies in their minds"
*They are training their brains for when they begin to read books that don't include pictures with the text.
*They are able to activate all their senses to create mental images.


During this session children were asked to close their eyes and Teacher told them "words" such as ice cream, dog, pencil crayon, etc. and they were asked tocreate pictures in their minds imagining these words, "picture words".

After this, children were told a story ,still with eyes closed, and teacher asked questions such as what flavor? what colors? what shape? how did it smell? etc. so children could  realize that they can use their mind  to perceive sensations with their 5 senses.

Children were told: How could it be that everyone in the room heard the same story but visualized different things? How can that  be possible?

They were given material to create a model of what they imagined from the story told.

"When your head is full of pictures,
they just have to come out"


Children were asked to draw the pictures that their minds created from the story told.
And were also asked to answer some questions regarding thier appreciation through their 5 senses.

 "When there are no pictures in the book,
you have to make pictures in your head"

 "Artists use colors to paint pictures;
authors use words to help their readers
paint pictures in their heads"
