Tips Para Makapag-foucs Ng Maigi Sa Itinuturo Ng Guro

Alam mo bang ang attention span ng tao ay 20 minuto lamang? Ngayo’y alam mo na. At bilang mga estudyante, mahalagang nakatuon ang buong atensyon mo sa itinuturo ng guro. Pero paano nga kung maikli lang ang attention span? Heto ang ilang mga tips.
Ang pagiging handa. Kung alam mo sa sarili mo na maayos kang tingnan—hindi ‘yung parang hinabol ng sampung kabayo—ay hindi ka mahihiya o mapapa-isip kung disente ka bang tingnan. Maganda rin kung may sapat na tulog. Syempre, para hindi tutulug-tulog sa klase at magmukhang living dead. Mas maganda kung nakahanda ang utak mo. Sigurado kang inaral mo na ang takdang aralin bago ka pa man nakatuntong sa paaralan kinabukasan. Ito ay isang paraan para hindi ka magmamadaling mag-review dahil baka tanungin ka ng guro patungkol sa takdang kanyang ibinigay.
Ang pakikinig sa guro. Mas maiintidihan mo ang mga itinuturo ng guro kung gagawin mo ang mga ss.:

  • Hindi pagkuyakoy o pagduyan ng mga paa.
  • Pag-upo ng maayos. Ito ay isang paraan para ma-relax tayo. Hindi naman kasi kaaya-ayang tingnan kung naka-relax na akala mo’y nasa bahay lang. Mapapatanong ka pa nga ng: Estudyante ba talaga ito?
  • Huwag makipagdaldalan. Bukod sa de-merits ay hindi mo rin maiintidihan ang itinuturo ng guro. Baka nga dumating pa sa punto na kailangan pang sumigaw ng guro para lang malaman mo na tinatawag ka niya para mag-recite.
  • Mag-focus lang sa itinuturo ng guro at huwag mag-isip ng mga bagay na wala namang kaugnayan sa pinag-aaralan.
  • Huwag magpapa-distract sa iba pang mga tunog sa paligid tulad ng tahol ng aso. Hindi mo lang napapansin sa araw-araw na kung saan nakatuon ang atensyon mo ay doon lang at hindi mo na namamalayan kung ano ang nangyayari sa paligid mo. Halimbawa na lang ang mga nangangarap ng gising, wala silang ibang naririnig kundi ang mga tunog sa day dream nila.

Mainam na magawa mo ang mga nakasulat sa itaas. Dahil mas mabibigyang linaw ang mga bagay na gumugulo sa iyong isipan. Kahit pa sabihing may libro, hindi pa rin iyon sapat sapagkat hindi lahat ng dapat mong malaman ay naroon na.

Bonus: kung walang seating arrangement, pumuwesto kung saan palaging naroon ang guro. Kung madalas siyang mag-discuss sa harap, doon pumuwesto sa una o ikalawang row. Kung palakad-lakad naman ang guro tuwing discussion, mainam kung sa gitna ka na lang pumuwesto. Mas makakatulong din kung nasa aisle ka kasi talagang pipiliting mong makinig. Madali kasing mapansin ang mga tao sa gitna. Prone din kasi sa tukso ng pakikipagdaldalan at paggawa ng kung ano’ng ‘di subject related kapag nasa gilid.

Mahalaga Ang Oras

Tayong mga estudyante, hindi natin maiiwasan ang mga takdang-aralin, proyekto atbp. May mga pagkakataon pa ngang kinukulang tayo ng oras. Kaya naman naisipan kong magbigay ng tips para satime management.

  1. Sa umaga, sa oras na alam mong gising ka na ay bumangon kaagad. Hindi ‘yung magmumuni-muni pa. Oo nga’t nakakaantok pagkagising. Tumalon ng ilang beses o ‘di kaya’y mag-warm up exercise para mabuhayan ng dugo.
  2. First things first. Unahin ang mga bagay na pinakamalapit ang deadline. Hindi ‘yung, kung ano ang paborito ay iyon ang uunahin.
  3. Mag-focus lang sa kung ano ang ginagawa. Hindi ‘yung magde-day dream pa. Magiging sanhi lang ito ng pagtatagal sa isang gawain. Baka sa pagbabalot lang ng isang notebook ay abutin pa ng isang oras!
  4. Hangga’t maaari, tapusin ang mga dapat tapusin bago pa man matulog. Para ‘pag gising kinabukasan ay wala nang aalalahanin.
  5. Gabi pa lang ay ihanda na ang mga gamit sa eskwela. Ito ay isang mabisang paraan para masigurong walang nakalimutan.
  6. Be organized. Huwag paghalu-haluin ang mga assignments, projects atbp. Mas mainam na igurpo ang mga ito, kaysa ‘yung salaksak lang ng salaksak ng mga gamit sa bag. Siguraduhing mga karapat-dapat lang na gamit ang dadalhin. Huwag nang magdala pa ng mga magazines o gadgets. Huwag mong gawing park ang paaralan. Baka nga hindi ka pa nakakarating sa eskwelahan ay sumabog na ang bag mo sa dami ng laman. Isa pa, pabigat rin ang mga iyon sa dalahin.
  7. To-do-list. Bukod sa ‘para walang makaligtaan na gawain’ ang silbi nito, sangkap din ito upang malaman mo kung ano ang mga dapat na unahin.

Disiplina. Iyon ang pinakaimportante sa lahat. Dahil kahit anong tips ang malaman mo, hangga’t wala kang disiplina ay hindi ka rin maikakategoryang may ‘time management’.

Sino Ba Talaga si Santa Claus?

Sino Ba Talaga si Santa Claus?

Ang akala ng karamihan, si Santa at si Hesus ay iisa. Dati, ganoon din ang akala ko. Pero ang paniniwalang ito ay isang malaking MALI! Naka-caps lock pa ‘yan. Bluff na bluff! Kung hindi naman pala siya si Jesus, eh sino siya?

Ang maikling kasaysayan ni Santa.

stn01015

Nagsimula ang lahat kay Bishop Nicholas ng Myra AKA Turkey. Yung mga kayamanan niya, ginamit niya sa mga nangangailangan -sa mahihirap, may sakit, etc. Nakilala siya dahil sa pagiging mapagbigay hindi lang sa nangangailangan, kundi pati na rin sa mga bata. Binawian siya ng buhay noong ika-6 ng Disyembre, AD 343 at inilibing sa cathedral church. May nabuo umanong liquid na tinatawag na ‘manna’ sa paligid ng libingan nito. Ang liquid na iyon ay sinasabing milagroso. Kaya nitong magpagaling ng mga may sakit. Inaalala ang kamatayan ni Bishop Nicholas tuwing ika-6 ng Disyembre.

Mula Turkey, kumalat ang istorya ni Bishop Nicholas hanggang Amerika. Ang katagang Saint Nicholas, Sinter Klaas kung tawagin ng mga taga-Holland. Kalaunan, Sancte Claus ang naging tawag sa kanya ng mga taga-Estados Unidos. Ipinakilala naman ang santo bilang Santa Claus ng mga Europeo.

Noong 1930’s, pinakilala ng pintor na si Haddon Sunblom ang dress code ni Santa -red and white clothing. Lalo pang nakilala ang dress na ito dahil sa advertisement ng Coca-Cola. Well, kakulay eh.

Realization

Kung gayon, si Santa Claus ay hindi si Jesus. Bagkus, si Santa Claus ay si Saint Nicholas, isang tao na itinalaga bilang santo. Marahil ito ang ilan sa mga dahilan kaya napagkakamalan na si Santa at Jesus ay iisa lang:

st_-nicholas2

-close siya sa mga bata

-matulungin

-generous

-tuwing Disyembre siya inaalala.

But mind you guys, kamatayan ni Santa ang ginugunita tuwing Disyembre, at ito ay tuwing December 6. Samantala, kapanganakan naman ni Jesus ang ipinagdiriwang at ito ay tuwing December 25.

So alam na natin, ha? Pero kunsabagay, si Hesus naman talaga ang dahilan kung bakit nagdiriwang ng Pasko ang mga Pinoy. Ipinakilala lang ng mga Amerikano si Santa Claus.Christmas is all about Christ. Kaya nga Christ-mas, eh.

Para sa mga magulang at nakatatanda na nagbabasa nito, itama natin ang maling persepsyon ng mga bata tungkol kay Santa, okay? Hindi naman masamang alalahanin din natin ang kabutihang ginawa ni Saint Nicholas. Pero marapat lang na si Jesus ang inaalala tuwing Pasko dahil kaarawan Niya iyon. =)

Babysitting A Toddler

Do you still remember the things you’ve done when you were a kid? It’s typical for someone to run around the house, imitate the elders, and mess up things. Life is easy. Children only follow the idea that if you did something good, you’ll get a reward. Likewise, if you did something bad, you’ll receive a punishment.

As a kid, you also wonder why the elders always get stressed with you even if you’re just having fun. But now that you’re the one babysitting a kid, you realize how tough it is to take care of a child. It’s more difficult than growing a plant! Isn’t it stressful?

First and foremost, you’ve got to watch for everything they do because they might be caught into accidents in just a blink of an eye. You can let them play by themselves but you should be aware of what they do.

Kids have their own minds. You can’t make them follow your rules that easy. You got to play lots of tricks to make them obey you. One situation could be convincing them to finish their meal first before they play with their toys.

Kids could have mood swings, too. Be flexible enough to cope up with their feelings. Remember: you won’t be able to calm a scared child of you’re mad.

Kids experience emotional stress. Base on my observation in my four-year old sister, if you just scold at her at all times, it’s as if you’re telling her that she didn’t do anything good in her life. So its better that you praise your kid or give rewards whenever he/she did a good job. You’ll develop a good relationship in that way. Also, this will help the child practice the good things more often than the bad since the consequences was already imprinted to him/her.

Kids love attention and tend to get insecure. They always wanted rewards or praises. They always wanted to be the best. It’s not bad for them to be competitive. Support them in everything (good) they do. Just keep them humble and sport.

A balance in being strict and loose should be practiced. You can’t always restraint the child like a prisoner or give much freedom as if he/she has no guardian at all.

Aside from thinking about work/school, household chores and bills, keeping an eye on your child should also be put into mind. Whether it’s your kid, sibling, nephew, or even if you don’t have any blood relation at all, as long as you’re the babysitter, you’ll take care of that kid. It’s a very sensitive case. But anyway, as long as you know what to do, you’ll raise that child just fine.

College Freshie: Classroom Rules 101

In college, cleaning the classroom is not necessary. How it looks like when you arrived there should also be the look once you leave. However, you won’t have a permanent room. You’ll have different rooms per subject for a definite time and it changes every semester. Some professors will allow you to choose your seat. In this case, choose the spot where you could clearly hear your instructor’s voice.

College is really different from high school. If you’re a freshman, this article will help you cope up with your new environment. This will give you instructions of what you will do before, during and after your class.

 

Before:

-Don’t be late. Arrive often fifteen minutes before or on time in your designated room. But in case you’ll be, the latest would be until fifteen minutes after the start of a particular period. If the class starts at 9:00, it’ll be at 9:15. Proffessors also follow this rule. So if he/she didn’t arrive within fifteen minutes, you could leave the room. However, it is still better to go to his/her faculty room and check if you have a class.

-Better go to the restroom to pee or retouch yourself. In this way, you won’t miss any part of the class discussion. Take note: it’s better not to go to the restroom especially during exams. Professors refrain students from doing this unless they were finish with their test papers.

-If you’re hungry, better eat before or after class. Doing this during the lecture will interrupt your flaws on the lesson.

-Set your mind at the subject. Recall the previous lesson or check your notes. You might be asked by the professor. It would be a bonus recitation for you.

-Turn you cellular phone off or silent to avoid its distraction in class.

-Before you enter a room, make sure it is the right room at the right time. Don’t just barge in all at once. Who knows? You might get embarrassed once you realize that you entered the wrong room. You’ll disrupt the current class, too.

 

During:

-Don’t move too much. It doesn’t mean that you should be a statue. Just sit up straight.

-Don’t make noise and don’t let yourself be distracted when you heard one.

-Don’t make useless chatter with your seatmates.

-Don’t text or take out your cellular phone. Some professors were very meticulous that once they saw this device, they’ll snatch it from you. If you won’t retrieve it, you have to meet him/her at the faculty room and give a valid reason why you’re phone was out at his/her time.

-Don’t daydream. You don’t want to be asked by the professor and you not noticing it, right?

-Take down notes swiftly. Terms mentioned only once or twice might appear in exams,

-When a question is raised, answer as best as you can. Even if yours was wrong, at least you tried. There might be instances that you’re already know the right answer but you don’t want to share it in fear that it is wrong.

-Ask questions running on your mind or clarify things when the lecture was done.

-Share ideas. Professors weren’t living Google who know everything. Class discussion is a learning experience for both students and professors.

 

After:

-Check your seat if you have any trash. Also, check your things. You might have forgotten something to return inside your bag.

-Summarize the lesson in your mind or take down notes.

 

There were so many rules, right? It’s okay. If you have the great tactics, you can break a rule or two. As the saying goes, “know the rules well so you can break it like a pro!”

College Freshie: Get To Know People

In college life, you may know few people—mostly your previous schoolmates—or no one at all. It makes you feel awkward, knowing that the people you only get in touch with, were previous or current block mates. Why not get acquainted or even friends with the workers in your university?

Be friendly with security guards, canteen and sari-sari store vendors, the janitors and even the university cashier and librarian. Other than them, try getting acquainted with the people from the registrar’s office, office of student affairs, dean’s office and the faculty members. You’ll never know. You might meet the university president at the hallway but you didn’t greet him since you didn’t know. It is shameful. Lastly, know the members of your university student government and school organizations particularly the one you took part in. These are your schoolmates and the ones at the higher levels were handled by various professors. You could ask them some question about you professors, such as what type of professors they were and how they give examinations.

Surely, there are lots of names and faces in your school. Don’t worry. It’s not a must to know every individual. Recognizing a few would be helpful enough. But why should you do it? It is because you might need their help someday. You could ask for their referrals to the companies you might apply for. Moreover, they might help you with your school projects like conducting interviews and surveys.
