l Fideicomiso de los Niños (The Children’s
Trust) está comprometido a mejorar las
vidas de los niños y sus familias en el condado Miami-Dade a través de inversiones estratégicas
en su futuro. Con esa misión bien clara, nos complace
brindarles esta Guía de programas de verano 2012.
Esperamos que esta guía sea informativa y útil para los
padres y tutores.
La inversión en programas para después de la escuela y campamentos de verano sigue siendo una parte fundamental del apoyo financiero de Children’s Trust.
Muchos de los programas financiados se incluyen en la

como para después de la escuela, The Children’s Trust
fomenta programas de alta calidad por todo el condado y especialmente en comunidades de bajos recursos
y que incluyen a niños con necesidades especiales.
Los programas de verano y para después de la
escuela ayudan a las familias trabajadoras, manteniendo
a los niños en un ambiente seguro e inspirándoles a
aprender. Actividades divertidas y agradables —desde
arte hasta deportes y tecnología— ayudan a sus hijos a
mejorar sus habilidades interpersonales, sociales y académicas. Para evitar que los niños pierdan habilidades
académicas durante el verano, los programas incluyen
actividades que fomentan la lectura y el aprendizaje.
Las opciones que aparecen aquí representan una
amplia gama de programas organizados por instituciones
públicas, privadas y religiosas. Los programas financiados
por The Children’s Trust están señalados con un sol
dentro de los códigos postales donde se encuentran.
Los programas de verano y para después de la
escuela no están licenciados por el estado de Florida.
Los programas financiados por The Children’s Trust
se ciñen a los criterios propuestos por la National
AfterSchool Association, la cual también ha establecido
un procedimiento de acreditación. Visite naaweb.org

Summer Programs Guide 2012
he Children’s Trust is committed to
improving the lives of children and
families in Miami-Dade County by
making strategic investments in their futures.
With that mission in mind, we are pleased to
offer this comprehensive Summer 2012
Programs Guide. We hope that parents and
caregivers alike find the information to be helpful
and informative.
Investing in summer camps and after-school
programs are a cornerstone of Children’s Trust
funding. Many of the funded programs are
included in the listings section of this guide. For
both summer and after-school,The Children’s
Trust nurtures high-quality programs for children
around the county and especially in traditionally
under-served communities. All our programs are
inclusive of children with disabilities.
Quality summer and after-school programs
support working families by keeping children safe
and by inspiring learning. Fun, engaging activities –
from arts to sports to technology – help children
improve their personal, social and skills, while
strengthening academic skills.To avoid the “summer slide,” quality summer camps include a variety
of activities that foster literacy and reading.
The options listed in this guide represent a
broad selection of programs operated by public,
private and faith-based agencies and institutions.
Programs funded by The Children’s Trust are
identified with a sun symbol in the zip code
where they are located.
Summer and after-school programs are not
licensed by the State of Florida. Programs funded
by The Children’s Trust adhere to standards
proposed by the National AfterSchool Association, which also has instituted an accreditation
procedure.Visit their website, www.naaweb.org,
for recommendations. Also, the National Summer Learning Association, www.summerlearning.
org, provides services to communities, school
districts and programs, and information regarding
quality summer learning programs.

Summer Camp
3
As an involved parent you know that learning shouldn’t stop in the
summer. In fact, it’s critical that your child’s education doesn’t “slide”
during the summer months. What’s called for is a flavor of learning
different from the school year, a more relaxed one that combines
interactivity, fun and enriching activities.
T
he most likely place to find this
is at a high-quality summer camp,
such as the many affordable options funded by The Children’s
Trust. Quality camps offer a safe and stimulating environment, one that ensures that your
child’s reading skills, the core of their academic
progress, will be maintained or improved.
Summer camps offer a unique opportunity
to shift how children experience learning,
especially for children whose experience with
school has not always been positive.
Building Educated Leaders for Life (BELL)
is a national nonprofit that partners with
schools in high-poverty neighborhoods to
offer summer programs. Among their goals
is to transform the way those children experience learning.
“We offer an experience that has a different look-and-feel from the ordinary school
day, one that fosters academic skills and also
builds self-confidence,” says Michael Sikora,
BELL communications director.
Working in small interactive groups with
certified teachers and trained assistants, expectations are high, and activities are diverse.
Mornings are dedicated to engaging literacy
and math activities, while the afternoons are
used for enrichment – leadership development, arts, music, drama, science, creative
writing, foreign languages and more.
Although BELL has yet to partner in
Miami-Dade, their summer learning approach
of encouraging interactivity, engagement and
movement is modeled by many Children’s
Trust summer camps.
Spend some time in the weeks before school
ends exploring your summer camp options in
terms of location and activities offered. Some
camps offer a special-interest focus – nature,
drama, dance, sports, swimming, technology and
others – an ideal way for your child to explore
an interest or advance a particular talent.
Consider multiple options for camps as the
most popular fill up early. Ask for recommendations from friends, family and neighbors
who have enrolled their children previously
in programs. Call prospective camps with any
questions and tour the site first-hand whenever possible.
Staff at camps should be welcoming and
respectful. In terms of language and culture,
they should reflect the families they are
serving. Staff members should be friendly and
cordial towards each other, and be clearly
encouraging of a child’s natural innovation
and curiosity.
All camps should meet acceptable supervision guidelines. Large camps may accommodate hundreds of children, yet appropriate
ratios of attentive, engaged staff will ensure
that your child enjoys an enriching, positive
experience. For children between the ages of
6 to 10, there should be one adult for every
10 children. Above age 11, one adult staff
member for every 15 children is considered
acceptable. Around water, however, more supervision is required.
Consider the camp’s facilities. Is the space
safe, well-lit and large enough for children to
enjoy their activities? Is there plenty of outdoor space? Shade? Scan for potential safety
hazards both indoors and out. Ask about
supervision in the play yard and regarding
physical play. Are water activities offered?
Make sure that supervising staff know CPR
(Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) and that
swimming instructors are certified.
If your child has a disability, advise the camp
as soon as possible; most camps will do their
best to accommodate your child. Ask about
opportunities to socialize with peers with disabilities and for the chance to network with
other families. It’s also important that the activities and rules be appropriate for your child
with special needs.
Safety should be the highest concern for
any program. Staff must always monitor when
children arrive, leave and who picks them
up. Your child will be outside for at least a
portion of the day, a fact that presents its
own safety risk. Healthy snacks and food and
plenty of water and beverages (low sugar,
non-carbonated!) will go a long way to keep
your son or daughter from wilting. Ask when
and what foods and beverages are provided.
To find the “best” camp for your family,
start looking early and consider your budget, location and your child’s best interests.
Especially, look for a camp with more “F-U-N”
in the learning, to be sure there’s no “slide” in
their education this summer.

ey, roller skating, rollerblading, skateboarding and even yoga. The City of Hialeah
Parks and Recreation, like most cities, offers
different year-round activities for children,
including non-athletic programs. “A lot of
kids are not into spor ts, but may be into
dance, drama or acting,” Lagomacini says.
The City of Hialeah is also implementing
a vir tual fitness program where kids can
play games on an Xbox or PlayStation, then
go outside and practice the same moves.
Learn more at hialeahfl.gov.
Martial Arts
It’s important to keep
your child physically
active, especially
during the summer
months when the
temptation to sit in
front of the television
or computer may be
too strong to resist.
F
or some kids, being physically
active may take the form of
organized sports, while others
prefer alternative and more creative ways to keep moving.
“Parents are experts on their own children;
they know best what [activity their] child
would most enjoy and can encourage regular
engagement in that activity,” explains Dr. Peter
A. Gorski, M.P.A., chief health and child development officer for The Children’s Trust, and
a developmental and behavioral pediatrician
who teaches public health, pediatrics and psychiatry at the university level.
“No child needs to be forced to have fun,”
Gorski says. “If you know that your child really
enjoys some activity, encourage [him or her]
and ensure that they have the opportunity to
experience it regularly.”
The most important thing is to know
your child’s temperament, Gorski says. Some
children enjoy organized team sports, others
individual exercise. And then there are those
who are motivated by social engagement and
tend only to participate in an activity when
they’re with a friend. Many children jump in
and adapt easily to new situations and challenges, while others require a little extra
encouragement. “Children will let you know
when they’re having a good time.”
So how does a parent choose the right
activity for their child? Gorski recommends
exposing children to a wide range of activities
and letting them select ones they enjoy most.
You can then narrow down the activities. Also,
try leading your children toward activities you
would enjoy doing with them, such as biking,
walking or playing ball. The Summer Olympic
Games provide a good opportunity to watch
athletes in action and identify activities that
may be of interest.
If you have an athletic child, consider enrolling them in seasonal sports, such as football in the fall or basketball in the winter and
spring. “Whatever the pros are doing is what
we are also doing,” says Jeffrey Lagomacini,
education and special programs director
for City of Hialeah’s Creative Learning &
Play (CL&P), a summer and out-of-school
program. “Kids will watch a sport or go to
a Dolphin or Heat game, and [get excited
about that] sport and want to play.”
For kids who dislike organized spor ts,
there are plenty of chances to explore different physical activities and non-traditional
spor ts, such as track and field, gymnastics,
swimming, tennis, bowling, Ping-Pong, hock-

Fit Kids of America
The Fit Kids of America program offers
summer and after-school programs and is
a great way to expose children to a wide
variety of physical activities and help them
cultivate a love of fitness.
“Not everyone likes the same thing; you
might like chicken, but [you] don’t want it
for breakfast, lunch and dinner,” says
Rhonda L. Smith, C.P.T., co-director and
founder of Fit Kids of America. “Some kids
like basketball, but we expose them to all
other disciplines. We want them to have
an arsenal of different [activities], so when
they’re older and they might say, ‘I’m over
basketball, but I remember I like soccer or
getting on a treadmill.’ You have to make
it interesting.”
The program takes a multidisciplinary
approach to fitness, incorporating team
sports and fitness classes. Children have
access to an array of fitness activities,
including racquetball, Ping-Pong, cardio
kickboxing, aerobics, basketball, volleyball,
soccer, softball, flag football, hip-hop dance
and strength training. Fit for Kids America
also offers a fully equipped, state-of-the-art
gym with treadmills, step climbers, bikes and
ellipticals. Learn more at fitkidsclub.com.

Martial arts are a terrific activity for children who do not like organized sports. The
benefits are two-fold:, strengthening both
the body and the mind. The activity’s focus
“helps with ADHD, developmental delays,
social skills and learning disabilities,” explains
Kelly Regalado, program director of United
Martial Arts Academy. Here, children set
their own goals and choose the skills they’d
like to accomplish, which helps build their
self-esteem. “Other benefits include improvement in gross and fine motor skills, weight
maintenance, [and] better eating and sleeping
[habits],” Regalado says. The academy offers
a summer camp and after-school program
in which children work on their form and
practice techniques according to their size,
age and experience. Children enrolled in the

• If a child seems uncomfortable or unhappy when starting a new activity, consider if it’s a temperamental issue that will change once the child adapts, or if the child is genuinely un
happy in this setting.
• When picking them up from an activity, ask them if they had fun. “Children will be honest, if you let them.” If they’re not enthusiastic, let them know it’s OK. Many people have to try out several things before they find what they really enjoy.
• Look for physical signs of unhappiness, such as stomachaches or tiredness. Other red flags are if they’re weepy, not eating or sleeping well, or whining more. If you notice any of these symptoms, something may not be serving the child’s well-being. Ask them how they’re
feeling, how the activity is going and if anyone is giving them a hard time. It might not be the activity, but the other children or the instructor that is causing them distress.
• If your child displays regular amounts of energy — or even increased energy — when
performing routine activities around the house, completing homework and during meal times, it’s a good sign that your child is not stressed.

Love Your
Library
Did You Know?
h Children learn best by playing
By Millie Acebal Rousseau
Once upon a time the library was a quiet
sanctuary, a place for kids to check out
books, read silently, conduct research or
complete homework.
T
oday’s library is so much more. “We are providing additional resources that allow families to actively interact with each other in
activities such as games, book discussions, art programs and other
fun and literary programs,” says Lucrece Louisdhon-Louinis, assistant director
of Community Outreach, Programming and Special Services at Miami-Dade
Public Library System.
Each year, the library offers more than 1,000 special activities, including
magic and wildlife shows, storytelling, drama and writing workshops, music
and dance, open mics and story slams, arts and crafts, yoga classes and even
ping-pong tournaments.
Libraries are an especially valuable resource during the summer when you
want to make sure your children don’t lose the skills they learned in school.
Many local branches offer storytelling in the morning and afternoon, as well
as arts and crafts. Children can also play trivia games on the computers and
work in groups. Here are some of the many programs offered by the library:
Summer Reading Program
The library’s summer reading program brings your children’s favorite books
to life via storytelling and events. Kids can reenact stories and become their
favorite storybook character. Or, working with artists, they can participate in
arts and crafts activities that allow their creativity and literacy skills to blossom.
The program consists of three age categories: children from birth to age12,
teens ages 13-18, and adults.The program strives to help children maintain
and improve their reading proficiency from the academic year.
Parents are encouraged to take an active role in the program. Each year
a theme is chosen and families sign in and receive a brochure. Parents can
then keep track of the books their child finishes and inform the library. In turn,
the library works with community partners to offer reading rewards such

gift certificates. “It doesn’t matter what you read, as long as you read,” says
Louisdhon-Louinis. “They read on certain topics, and we hire performers,
storytellers, dancers, clowns and magicians.”
Reading Ready
The Reading Ready Early Literacy Program is designed to promote and
improve literacy among young children from birth to age 5. As a result, when
these children begin their formal schooling they are ready to learn how to
read. The library also offers a number of educational and culturally enriching
programs for children ages 5 to 8, including renowned author appearances
and story times; music and dance; arts and crafts; family and bedtime story
times; and read-aloud programs.The library’s website offers tips for parents,
including how to use finger plays and songs to build pre-literacy. It also
offers electronic resources and websites where parents can play educational
games with their children that merge computers and books to stimulate
children’s imaginations.
Team with Teachers
Ask your child’s teacher for the summer reading list — it will vary by
school and grade.Visit the library with your children and try to find as many
books as possible on the list. If you need to, enlist the aid of a librarian.
“Parents should become familiar with the expectations for the child’s grade
level and select library books based on the various content areas,” says Dr.
Marisel Elias-Miranda, administrative director of Miami-Dade County Public
Schools Office of Early Childhood Programs. “Parents should take [their] children to the public library and encourage them to participate in the library’s
activities for their age group.”
Electronic Resources
Online, the library also offers TumbleBookLibrary, an interactive reading
software that includes classic picture books. Children can read or listen along
as they view the online books. SmartyGames.com is another program offering free, educational games that help kids with math and reading. “Through
interaction on the computer, children have a good literary experience,”
Louisdhon-Louinis says. Books for pre-teens and teens are also available. At
mdpls.org, parents can find the best books for young adults, as well as staff
picks. Manga graphic novels, very popular with teens, can be accessed via the
TumbleBook software.
Avoiding the
Summer
Slide
By Millie Acebal Rousseau
Playground slides and
summer go hand-in-hand,
but the term “summer
slide” actually refers to
the loss of skills learned
in school when children
are on summer break.
A
ccording to the National Summer
Learning Association, all kids, regardless of
their income levels, lose an average of a month
of skills during the summer. When it comes to
math, they may lose about two months. Lowincome students may lose up to three months
of skills in reading achievement. “The gap builds
over time,” says Kate Shatzkin, director of marketing and communications at the National
Summer Learning Association. “By fifth grade,
[students] are more than two years behind in
their reading.” Research also suggests a correlation with dropping out of high school.
The good news is that there are ways to
help your child prevent the summer slide.
First, make sure kids read during the summer,
Shatzkin suggests. If they are too young to read
on their own, read to them. If they are older, ask
them questions about what they’re reading.
Before school lets out, request a teacher conference and ask what will be the important skills
at the beginning of the next grade level. Ask the
teacher to recommend websites and other useful resources to practice those skills.
Julie Hardy, a middle school math teacher
at Devon Aire K-8 Center, recommends that
parents look up math programs online so kids
can keep their skills sharp. Many sites charge a
minimal fee for one to two months of access.
She also says that Miami-Dade County Public
Schools (M-DCPS) offers virtual programs in the
summer through which students can take classes
online.The programs are accessed through the
student portal, but you must first sign up with
your child’s counselor.
Another useful resource is the M-DCPS
Parent Academy, accessed via dadeschools.net by
clicking on the Parents tab. Here, you’ll find familylearning events, summer reading lists and links to
free educational websites, such as College Bound,
which helps with summer learning. M-DCPS also
offers summer tutoring.
Research shows that parents who spend
more time talking and reading to their children
can improve academic outcomes, even when
they are limited by socioeconomic status,
says David Reitman, Ph.D., associate professor and director of the ADHD Assessment,

Consultation and Treatment Program at Nova
Southeastern University.
Parents should search for summer programs
that provide high-quality experiences, such as
those funded by The Children’s Trust. “One of
the best things kids can do is to become involved in summer programs and other activities
that require that they read, write and continue
to practice other skills that are needed to
perform well in the classroom and in life,” says
Reitman, also the director of Project RISE at the
university’s Center for Psychological Studies.
Interested parents are encouraged to call and
ask about the activities, and to volunteer if possible. Reitman says parents who are involved in
their children’s activities are better prepared to
provide opportunities on weekends and evenings that expand on the lessons they learned.
Remember, children learn best when the
skills have meaning for them and can be associated to real life situations. “Children must be able
to understand how the skills learned will be able
to help them in their daily life,” says Dr. Marisel
Elias-Miranda, administrative director of M-DCPS
Office of Early Childhood Programs.
Learning Made Fun
You don’t have to spend money to keep your
child learning during the summer. Visit the library,
museums and other cultural organizations on
free family days, and find other creative, low-cost
activities you can do at home. Some examples:
• Do fractions by cooking together and
doubling recipes.
• Practice addition and subtraction at the
grocery store by comparison shopping.
• Plan a virtual family vacation and have kids research how much gas is required to get there and other budget considerations; also, have them research the destination’s history, culture and geography.
• Figure out perimeter and space, and plant
a garden.
• Build critical and analytical skills by watching a play or show together and asking your child to explain what they saw; or read a book to
gether and discuss the meaning of the story and how it relates to their life.

Escoger el mejor
campamento de verano
Como padre responsible, usted debe saber que el aprendizaje no se
detiene en el verano. De hecho, es fundamental que la educación
de su hijo no se descuide durante los meses estivales.
L
o que se necesita es el gusto por
aprender cosas diferentes a las
que se ven durante el año escolar,
algo que combine interactividad,
diversión y actividades enriquecedoras.
El lugar más probable para encontrarlo es
un campamento de verano de calidad, como
las muchas opciones económicas financiadas
por The Children’s Trust. Los buenos campamentos poseen un ambiente seguro y estimulante, uno que garantice que las habilidades
para la lectura, núcleo del progreso académico
de su hijo, se mantendrán o mejorarán.
Los campamentos de verano ofrecen la
oportunidad única de cambiar la manera en
que los niños experimentan el aprendizaje, sobre todo para los que no siempre han tenido
una experiencia positiva en la escuela.
Building Educated Leaders for Life (BELL)
es una organización nacional sin fines de lucro
que se asocia con escuelas de vecindarios muy
pobres para ofrecer programas de verano.
Entre sus metas está cambiar —transformar—
la manera en que los niños aprenden.
“Ofrecemos una experiencia que tiene un
aspecto y una sensación diferente a la de un
día común de clase, que fomenta las habilidades académicas y que también estimula la con-
fianza en uno mismo”, señala Michael Sikora,
directora de comunicaciones de BELL.
Al trabajar en pequeños grupos interactivos
con maestros titulados y asistentes adiestrados, las expectativas son altas y las actividades,
diversas. Las mañanas se dedican a reforzar las
actividades literarias y matemáticas; las tardes,
al enriquecimiento: desarrollo del liderazgo,
artes, música, arte dramático, ciencias, escritura
creativa, idiomas extranjeros, entre otros.

Tome en cuenta varias opciones, ya que los
campamentos más populares se llenan con
rapidez. Pídales recomendaciones a sus amistades, familiares y vecinos que ya han inscrito
anteriormente a sus hijos en esos programas.
Llame a algunos campamentos para hacer
preguntas y, cuando sea posible, recorra las
instalaciones.
Los empleados de los campamentos deben
ser hospitalarios y respetuosos. En lo relativo
a idioma y cultura, deben ser un reflejo de las
familias a las que atienden. Deben mostrarse
amistosos y cordiales entre ellos, y estimular de
forma clara el ingenio y la curiosidad natural
de los niños.
Todos los campamentos deben contar con
directrices aceptables de supervisión. Los campamentos grandes pueden recibir a cientos de
niños, aunque la proporción adecuada de empleados, atentos y comprometidos, garantizará
que su hijo disfrute de una experiencia positiva
y enriquecedora. Debe haber un adulto por
cada niño entre 6 y 10 años de edad, y un empleado adulto por cada 15 niños mayores de
11 años se considera aceptable. Cuando
el entorno está próximo al agua, se necesita
más supervisión.
Supervise las instalaciones del campamento.
¿El espacio es seguro, bien iluminado y lo bastante grande para que los niños disfruten de
sus actividades? ¿Tiene suficiente espacio al aire
libre? ¿Sombra? Busque peligros potenciales
tanto en el interior como en el exterior del local. Pregunte acerca de la supervisión en el patio de juegos y en lo referente a juegos físicos.
¿Se ofrecen actividades acuáticas? Asegúrese de
que los empleados de supervisión sepan aplicar
CPR (Resucitación Cardiopulmonar) y de si los
instructores de natación tienen certificados.
Si su hijo tiene alguna discapacidad, infórmelo al campamento lo antes posible; la mayoría
9
de los campamentos hará todo lo posible por
acomodarlo. Averigüe si hay oportunidades de
que los niños socialicen con otros compañeros
con discapacidades y sobre la posibilidad de
relacionarse con otras familias. También es
importante que las actividades y las normas
sean apropiadas a las necesidades especiales
de su hijo.
La seguridad debe ser la principal preocupación de cualquier campamento. Los empleados
siempre deben estar atentos a cuándo llegan
los niños, cuándo se van y quién los recoge. El
niño debe permanecer en el exterior al menos
parte del día, un hecho que presenta sus propios riesgos. Meriendas y comidas saludables y
abundante agua y bebidas (bajas en azúcar, no
carbonatadas) podrán evitar que los niños se
debiliten. Pregunte cuándo y qué alimentos y
bebidas se proporcionan.
Para encontrar el “mejor” campamento, comience a investigar con tiempo y tomando en
consideración su presupuesto, la ubicación y
el mejor interés de su hijo. Busque sobre todo
un campamento que incluya la diversión en el
aprendizaje para que este no se descuide en
el verano.

Niños
siempre activos
Por Millie Acebal Rousseau
Es importante que
mantenga a su hijo
físicamente activo,
sobre todo en el
verano, cuando la
tentación de sentarse
frente al televisor o la
computadora puede ser
muy difícil de resistir.
P
ara algunos niños, estar físicamente activos puede ser participar en deportes de grupo, mientras otros prefieren formas más
creativas de mantenerse en movimiento.
“Los padres son expertos en sus propios
hijos, pues conocen mejor qué actividad
disfrutará más el niño y pueden animarlo a
practicarla con regularidad”, explica el Dr.
Peter A. Gorski, jefe de salud y encargado
de desarrollo infantil de The Children’s Trust,
además de pediatra especializado en desarrollo y conducta que imparte clases sobre salud,
pediatría y psicología a nivel universitario. “En
segundo lugar, no se debe forzar a ningún
niño a divertirse. Si usted sabe que su hijo
de veras disfruta alguna actividad, anímelo y
asegúrese de que tenga la oportunidad de
practicarla con frecuencia”.
Gorski señala que lo más importante es
conocer el temperamento del niño. A algunos
les gustan los deportes de grupo, otros pre-
fieren el ejercicio individual. Y también los hay
que se sienten motivados por el compromiso
social y tienden a participar solamente en
una actividad que puedan realizar con un
amigo. Muchos niños aceptan con facilidad situaciones y retos nuevos y se adaptan a ellos;
otros necesitan un empujoncito que
los anime. “Los niños le dirán si la están pasando bien”.
Deportes de temporada
y otras actividades
Si tiene un niño con aptitudes atléticas,
tome en cuenta inscribirlo en deportes de
temporada. “Lo que están haciendo los profesionales es lo mismo que hacemos nosotros”,
señala Jeffrey Lagomacini, director de educación y programas especiales de Creative
Learning & Play (CL&P, Aprendizaje y Juego
Creativo) de Hialeah, un programa de actividades de verano y fuera del horario escolar.
“Los niños ven un deporte o un partido de

los Dolphins o del Heat, se entusiasman y
quieren practicarlo”. El calendario de deportes de temporada es el siguiente: el fútbol
americano se practica en otoño, el baloncesto
en invierno/primavera y el fútbol en verano.
Los niños a los que no les gustan los
deportes de grupo tienen muchas oportunidades de desarrollar diferentes actividades
físicas y deportes no tradicionales, tales
como campo y pista, gimnasia, natación, tenis,
bowling, ping-pong, patinaje sobre ruedas,
sobre patineta, skateboarding y hasta yoga. El
Departamento de Parques y Recreación de
Hialeah, como otros municipios, organizan
actividades infantiles durante todo el año,
incluso programas no relacionados con los
deportes. “A muchos niños no les gusta el deporte, pero sí les puede interesar la danza, las
artes dramáticas, actuar”, explica Lagomacini.
La ciudad de Hialeah también ha implemen-
tado un programa de ejercicios en el que
los niños pueden jugar con un Xbox o una
PlayStation, luego salir y practicar los mismos
movimientos. Obtenga más información en
hialeahfl.gov.
Artes marciales
Las artes marciales son una actividad estupenda para los niños que no se inclinan
por los deportes de grupo. “Ayuda con el
ADHD [siglas en inglés del Trastorno por
Déficit de Atención con Hiperactividad], con
el desarrollo retrasado, las relaciones sociales
y la discapacidad para el aprendizaje”, explica
Kelly Regalado, directora de programa de
United Martial Arts Academy. Allí los niños
establecen sus propias metas y escogen las
habilidades que quieren alcanzar, lo cual ayuda
a desarrollar su autoestima. “Otros beneficios
son la mejora de las habilidades motrices,
La medida justa
Algunas veces los padres se dejan llevar y, sin proponérselo, presionan al niño para que
participe en alguna actividad o deporte. Gorski ofrece algunos consejos para mantenerse
usted y su hijo en la justa medida.
• Si nota al niño incómodo o descontento cuando comienza una actividad nueva, decida si es un problema de temperamento que cambiará una vez que el niño se adapte o si se siente
verdaderamente infeliz realizando esa actividad.
• Cuando lo recoja del lugar donde está su hijo desarrollando esa actividad, pregúntele si se ha divertido. “El niño será honesto, si se le permite”. Si no se muestra entusiasta, déjele saber que no pasa nada. Muchas personas tienen que intentar cosas nuevas varias veces antes de darse cuenta de que realmente las disfrutan.
• Busque señales físicas de descontento, tales como dolores de estómago o cansancio. Otras señales de advertencia son que el niño esté lloroso, que no coma bien o que se queje.
Si nota estos síntomas es que la actividad no está contribuyendo al bienestar del niño. Pregúntele cómo se siente, cómo le va en la actividad y si alguien lo está molestando. Puede que no se trate de la actividad en sí, sino que otros niños o el instructor le estén causando angustia.
• Si su hijo demuestra buenas dosis de energía —o incluso energía mayor— cuando está realizando actividades rutinarias (al hacer las tareas o durante las horas de comida) eso es una buena señal de que no está tenso.

alimenticios y de sueño”, señala. La academia tiene un campamento de verano y un
programa para después de la escuela donde
los niños se mantienen en forma y practican
técnicas según su tamaño, edad y experiencia.
Los niños inscritos en el campamento de verano pasan una hora con un maestro titulado
y participan en viajes de campo, artes y manualidades y otras actividades. Obtenga más
información en h20boxing.com.
Fit Kids of America
Fit Kids of America tiene programas de
verano y para después de la escuela y es una
excelente manera de poner a los niños en
contacto con diversas actividades físicas y
ayudarlos a cultivar el gusto por el ejercicio.
“A todos no nos gusta lo mismo; a ti te puede gustar el pollo, pero no quieres comerlo
en el desayuno, el almuerzo y la cena”, ejemplifica Rhonda L. Smith, codirectora y fundadora de Fit Kids of America. “A algunos niños
les gusta el baloncesto, pero les mostramos
otras disciplinas. Queremos que cuenten con
actividades diferentes, para que cuando sean
mayores puedan decir ‘Ya no practico baloncesto, pero recuerdo que me gustaba jugar al
fútbol o caminar en una estera’. Hay que hacerlo más interesante”. El programa presenta
un enfoque multidisciplinario hacia el ejercicio,
incorporando deportes en equipo y clases de
ejercicios. Los niños tienen acceso a un buen
número de actividades físicas, entre ellas
racquetbol, ping-pong, kickboxing cardiovascular, aeróbicos, baloncesto, volibol, fútbol,
softball, fútbol flag, hip-hop y entrenamiento
de fuerza. Fit Kids of America también cuenta
con un gimnasio totalmente equipado con
lo último en tecnología: esteras para caminar,
máquinas stepper, bicicletas estáticas y
máquinas elípticas. Busque más información

Sabía que:
templos de lectura y diversión
h Los niños aprenden mejor jugando y reteniendo información al hacerlo.
En lo posible, trate de incorporar habilidades a los juegos.
Por Millie Acebal Rousseau
L
Había una vez en que las bibliotecas eran un
santuario silencioso, un lugar de donde los
niños sacaban libros en préstamo, donde leían,
investigaban o hacían sus tareas callados.
as bibliotecas actuales son mucho más que eso. “Proveemos
recursos adicionales que permiten a las familias interactuar en
actividades como juegos, debates de lecturas, programas de
arte y demás programas didácticos y divertidos”, señala Lucrece
Louisdhon-Louinis, directora adjunta de servicios comunitarios, de programación y especiales del Sistema de Bibliotecas Públicas de Miami-Dade.
La biblioteca es un recurso excelente, sobre todo durante los meses
de verano, cuando usted desea estar seguro de que sus hijos no perderán
habilidades que han aprendido antes en la escuela. A continuación aparecen
algunos de los numerosos programas que ofrecen las bibliotecas.
Programa de lecturas de verano
El programa de lecturas de verano de las bibliotecas lleva al alcance de
sus hijos sus libros favoritos mediante varias técnicas y actividades narrativas.
Los niños pueden recrear historias y convertirse en su personaje favorito. O,
igualmente, trabajar junto a artistas para participar en actividades artísticas y
artesanales que les permitan demostrar sus habilidades creativas y literarias.
El programa se divide en tres categorías: niños hasta 12 años, adolescentes
entre 13 y 18 y mayores de 18 años. El programa se esfuerza por ayudar a
los niños a mantener y mejorar el nivel de habilidad para la lectura logrado
durante el año académico recién finalizado.
Se les anima a los padres a tomar un papel activo en el programa. Cada
año se escoge un tema, las familias se inscriben y reciben un folleto. Los padres pueden llevar cuenta de los libros que han leído los niños e informar a
la biblioteca. A su vez, las bibliotecas se asocian con organismos comunitarios
para ofrecer recompensas por lectura, tales como iPods, computadoras
Netbook, juegos Nintendo DS, juegos de Baby Einstein, caballetes para pintar,
juegos de mesa y certificados de regalo de Barnes & Noble y Toys “R” Us.
“No importa lo que se lea, mientras se lea”, señala Louisdhon-Louinis. “Ellos
leen sobre determinados temas, y nosotros contratamos a actores, narradores, bailarines, payasos y magos”.

h Visite www.mdpls.org para buscar actividades organizadas por edad y la biblioteca más cercana.
h Puede obtener el Pase de Museos (Museum Pass), que otorga entrada gratuita a atracciones como HistoryMiami, Miami Art Museum, Miami Children’s Museum, Miami Science Museum y Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, entre otras.
Cada año, las bibliotecas ofrecen más de mil actividades especiales,
entre ellas demostraciones de magia y sobre la vida silvestre, narraciones,
música y danza, concientización sobre el medio ambiente, arte y artesanías.
Durante el verano, muchas sucursales locales ofrecerán narraciones de cuentos por la mañana y por la tarde, así como actividades relacionadas con arte
y artesanías.
Listos para leer
Reading Ready Early Literacy Program está concebido para promover
y mejorar la alfabetización de los niños desde el nacimiento hasta los cinco
años. El resultado es que cuando estos niños comienzan su escolarización
formal ya están listos para aprender a leer. Las bibliotecas también ofrecen
diversos programas educativos y de enriquecimiento cultural para niños
entre 5 y 8 años, como por ejemplo presentaciones de escritores
reconocidos y sesiones de lectura de cuentos, música y danza, arte, cuentos
para leer en familia o a la hora de dormir y lectura en voz alta. El sitio web de
las bibliotecas tiene consejos para padres, por ejemplo la utilización de juegos
y canciones para iniciar la prealfabetización.También cuentan con recursos
electrónicos y sitios web donde los padres pueden realizar con sus hijos
juegos educativos para estimular la imaginación de los pequeños.
Participación de los maestros
Pídale al maestro de su hijo una lista de lecturas para el verano, que varían
según la escuela y el grado escolar.Vaya a la biblioteca con su hijo y trate de
encontrar los libros recomendados. “Los padres deben familiarizarse con las
expectativas del grado que va cursar el niño y seleccionar libros basados en
las diversas áreas de contenidos”, dice la Dra. Marisel Elias-Miranda, directora
administrativa de Office of Early Childhood Programs (Oficina de Programas
para la Primera Infancia) de M-DCPS. “Los padres deberían llevar a sus hijos a
una biblioteca pública y animarlos a participar en las actividades para su edad”.
Recursos electrónicos
Las bibliotecas ofrecen, a través de internet,TumbleBookLibrary, un programa computarizado interactivo de lectura que incluye libros ilustrados
clásicos. Los niños pueden leer o escuchar mientras ven el libro en internet.
SmartyGames.com es otro programa que contiene juegos educativos gratis
que ayudan a los pequeños con matemáticas y lectura. “Mediante la interacción con la computadora, los niños obtienen una buena experiencia literaria”,
asegura Louisdhon-Louinis.También hay disponibles libros para preadolescentes y adolescentes. En el sitio web mdpls.org, los padres encontrarán los
mejores libros para jóvenes, así como los recomendados por los empleados
de las bibliotecas.
En verano
también
se aprende
Por Millie Acebal Rousseau
Los juegos y el verano son
prácticamente sinónimos,
pero eso no significa
que no se les pueda
sumar el aprendizaje.
S
egún la National Summer Learning
Association (Asociación Nacional para el
Aprendizaje en Verano), todos los chicos, independientemente de su nivel de ingreso, pierden
un promedio de un mes de habilidades durante
el verano. Si se trata de matemáticas, pueden
perder unos dos meses. Los estudiantes de
bajos ingresos pueden perder hasta tres meses
de capacidades para lectura. “La brecha crece
conforme el tiempo”, explica Kate Shatzkin,
directora de mercadeo y comunicaciones de
National Summer Learning Association. “Para
cuando llegan a quinto grado, los alumnos están
atrasadados más de dos años en lectura”. Las
investigaciones también sugieren que existe una
correlación con el abandono escolar.
La buena noticia es que existen maneras de
ayudar a su hijo a prevenir estos “resbalones
de verano”. Primero, asegúrese de que lea
durante el verano, sugiere Shatzkin. Si es muy
pequeño para leer solo, léale. Si es mayor, hágale
preguntas sobre lo que está leyendo.También
puede pedir una reunión con el maestro para
preguntar cuáles serán las habilidades más importantes para iniciar el próximo grado. Pídale
que le recomiende sitios web y otros recursos
útiles para practicar esas habilidades. Julie Hardy,
maestra de matemáticas de Devon Aire K-8
Center, les recomienda a los padres buscar programas de matemáticas en internet para que los
niños se mantengan al día. Muchos sitios web
cobran un cargo mínimo por uno o dos meses
de acceso.También señala que las escuelas públicas de Miami-Dade (M-DCPS, por sus siglas
en inglés) tienen programas virtuales en verano
que los alumnos pueden tomar por internet. Se
accede a dichos programas a través del portal
para alumnos, pero primero hay que inscribirse
con el consejero del niño.
Otro buen recurso es M-DCPS Parent
Academy (Academia de Padres de M-DCPS),
al que se puede entrar usando el portal
dadeschools.net y haciendo clic en la sección
“Parents”. Allí encontrará información sobre
eventos de aprendizaje para familias, listas de
lecturas para el verano y enlaces a sitios web
educativos, como el de College Bound, que
contribuye al aprendizaje durante el verano.
M-DCPS también tiene servicios de tutoría
para esa época del año.
Las investigaciones han demostrado que
los padres que pasan más tiempo hablando
y leyendo con sus hijos pueden mejorar los
resultados académicos, incluso si están limitados
por su estatus socioeconómico, explica el Dr.
David Reitman, profesor adjunto y director
de ADHD Assessment, Consultation and
Treatment Program (Programa de Tratamiento,
Consulta y Evaluación del ADHD, siglas en
inglés del Trastorno por Déficit de Atención
con Hiperactividad) de Nova Southeastern
University. “Una de las mejores cosas que puede
hacer el chico es apuntarse a programas de
verano y otras actividades que exijan que lea,
escriba y continúe practicando otras habilidades

que son necesarias para desempeñarse bien
en la escuela y en la vida”, explica Reitman,
que también es director de Project RISE en el
Centro de Estudios Sicológicos de Nova. Los
padres deben buscar programas que ofrezcan
experiencias de calidad para sus hijos, como los
que tiene The Children’s Trust. Los interesados
pueden llamar y preguntar por las actividades
que se imparten, y ofrecerse como voluntarios
si es posible. Reitman dice que los padres que
participan en las actividades de sus hijos están
mejor preparados para brindar oportunidades
de ampliar lo que ya el niño ha aprendido.
Recuerde, las habilidades que aprenden los
niños deben tener algún significado para ellos
y deberían enseñarse relacionándolas con
situaciones de la vida. “Los niños deben ser
capaces de entender cómo las habilidades que
han aprendido podrán servirles de ayuda en su
vida diaria”, explica la Dra. Marisel Elías-Miranda,
directora administrativa de Office of Early
Childhood Programs (Oficina de Programas
para la Primera Infancia) de M-DCPS.
Aprender divirtiéndose
No hace falta gastar dinero para mantener el
aprendizaje de su hijo durante el verano.Vayan
en familia a bibliotecas, museos y otras instituciones culturales, y busque otras actividades
creativas y baratas que pueden realizar en casa.
Aquí algunos ejemplos:
• Practiquen las fracciones (quebrados)
mientras cocinan juntos.
• Practiquen sumas y restas comparando los precios cuando vayan a comprar víveres.
• Enséñeles a calcular mientras planifican las vacaciones familiares haciendo que los
niños investiguen cómo llegar a un lugar determinado y cuánta gasolina se necesita; también haga que investiguen sobre la
historia, la cultura y la geografía de ese lugar.
• Planten un jardín y calculen su perímetro
y espacio.
• Desarrolle sus habilidades críticas y
analíticas viendo juntos una obra de teatro y pidiéndole al niño que explique lo que vio; también pueden leer un libro juntos y discutir el significado de la historia y cómo se
relaciona con su vida diaria.

Kòm paran k ap patisipe, ou konnen aprantisaj pitit ou a pa dwe sispann

a pa “glise desann” pandan mwa ete yo.

Chwazi Pi Bon Kan pou
Sezon Ete a

a nou vle wè ki rive, se yon kalite
aprantisaj ki pa menm avèk jan
pitit ou aprann pandan lane eskolè
a, ki pi gen fantezi, epi ki melanje
entèaktivite, amizman, ak aktivite ki fè timoun
lan fè pwogrè.
Pi bon kote pou w jwenn pwogram pou
sa, se nan yon bon kalite kan ete, tankou
plizyè chwa ou ka jwenn nan pwogram The
Children’s Trust finanse yo. Kan bon kalite yo
ofri yon anviwonnman san danje ki ankouraje pitit ou a, ki veye pou kapasite l nan
lekti, ak pwogrè akademik li prezève oubyen
vin pi bon.
Kan ete yo ofri yon opòtinite san parèy
pou chanje eksperyans pitit ou a nan aprann,
espesyalman pou timoun ki pa te toujou gen
yon eksperyans pozitif nan lekòl.
Building Educated Leaders for Life (BELL)
se yon òganizasyon nasyonnal ki pa travay pou
benefis, epi ki fè patnè avèk lekòl nan katye
ki pòv anpil yo, pou ofri pwogram pandan
Sezon Ete a.Youn nan objektif li, se transfòme
eksperyans pitit ou a fè nan aprann.
Michael Sikora, ki se direktè kominikasyon
nan BELL, di: “Nou ofri yon eksperyans ki pa
sanble lekòl òdinè, ki devlope kapasite akademik an menm tan li bay timoun lan konfyans nan tèt li.”
Kòm timoun yo travay nan ti gwoup
entèaktif avèk pwofesè ki sètifye, ak asistan
ki fòme pou sa, yo sanse bay bon rannman,
nan aktivite ki varye. Yo rezève aktivite nan
maten yo pou lekti, ekriti, ak matematik, epi
aktivite nan apremidi yo sèvi pou anrichisman – devlope lidèchip, fè travay atis, mizik,
dram, syans, konpozisyon literè, lang etranjè,
epi lòt aktivite ankò.
Menm si BELL poko fè patnè nan MiamiDade, aktivite aprantisaj nan Sezon Ete li
yo, ki sèvi pou ankouraje entèaktivite, patisipasyon, ak mouvman, pran modèl sou kan ete
Children’s Trust yo.
Pran yon moman pandan semenn anvan
lekòl fèmen yo, pou chèche konnen chwa ou
genyen pou kan ete, kidonk kote yo ye, ak
ki aktivite yo ofri. Gen kan ki konsantre sou
enterè espesyal – tankou lànati, dram, dans,
espò, natasyon, teknoloji, ak lòt enterè – sa ki
ofri yon mwayen ideyal pou pitit ou a teste
yon domèn enterè, oubyen pou li espesyalize
nan yon talan.
Gade si w ka chwazi plizyè kan, paske sa
ki pi popilè yo plen vit. Pran konsèy nan men
zanmi, fanmi, ak vwazinaj ou ki te deja enskri
pitit yo nan pwogram konsa. Rele kan ki ka
enterese w yo si w gen nenpòt kesyon, epi
ale nan kote a pèsonnèlman si sa posib.
Pèsonnèl nan kan yo dwe resevwa w avèk
koutwazi ak respè. Sou kesyon lang ak kilti, yo
dwe montre karakteristik fanmi y ap sèvi yo.
Anplwaye yo dwe aji byen youn ak lòt, epi yo
dwe montre aklè yo vle ankouraje tandans natirèl timoun lan pou inovasyon ak kiryozite l.
Tout kan yo dwe satisfè direktiv akseptab
pou sipèvizyon yo. Gwo kan yo ka resevwa
plizyè santèn timoun, men pwopòsyon rezonnab pèsonnèl ki la pou travay ak timoun yo
ap fè w konnen pitit ou a pral fè yon eksperyans anrichisan ak pozitif. Pou timoun ki ant laj
6 ak 10 an, dwe genyen omwen 1 moun majè
pou chak 10 timoun. Pou timoun ki depase laj
11 an, kapab genyen 1 moun majè pou chak
15 timoun. Sèlman, lè timoun yo toupre yon
dlo, yo dwe genyen plis sipèvizyon.
Gade enstalasyon ki nan kan an. Èske kote
a san danje, èske li byen klere, epi li ase gran
pou timoun yo alèz nan aktivite y ap fè? Èske
gen ase espas deyò? Ase lonbraj? Gade si
pa gen anyen ki ka poze yon danje, ni andedan, ni deyò. Mande ki kalite sipèvizyon
k ap genyen nan lakou kote timoun yo jwe,
ak sipèvizyon pou jwèt fizik yo. Èske y ap
pèmèt yo fè aktivite nan dlo? Chèche konnen si pèsonnèl sipèvizyon an konn fè CPR
(Reyanimasyon kadyopilmonè), epi si monitè
natasyon yo sètifye.
Si pitit ou a gen yon andikap, fè kan an
konnen sa pi bonè ou kapab; pifò nan kan
yo ap fè tout posib yo, pou fè aranjman pou
pitit ou a. Mande si l ap posib pou pitit ou
a fè aktivite avèk lòt timoun ki gen andikap
tou, ak si l ap posib pou w antre an relasyon
avèk lòt fanmi. Li enpòtan tou pou aktivite ak
règleman yo koresponn avèk bezwen espesyal pitit ou a genyen.
Sekirite fèt pou li pi gwo priyorite nan nenpòt
pwogram. Pèsonnèl sant lan dwe toujou veye lè
timoun yo rive nan kan an, lè yo prale lakay yo,
ak ki moun ki vin chèche yo. Pitit ou a pral pase
omwen yon pati nan jounen yo deyò, sa ki deja
reprezante yon danje. Manje ki bon pou sante,
anpil dlo, ak bon jan bweson (ki pa gen anpil sik,
epi ki san kabònat!) ap itil pou anpeche pitit ou
a santi feblès. Mande ki lè yo sèvi manje ak bweson, ak kisa yo sèvi timoun yo.
Pou jwenn “pi bon” kan pou fanmi w, koumanse chèche depi nan bonnè, epi reflechi
sou bidjè w, sou kote ou rete a, ak sou enterè
timoun lan. Chèche espesyalman yon kan
ki gen plis “P-L-E-Z-I” nan aprantisaj, pou
anpeche edikasyon pitit ou a “glise desann”
pandan Sezon Ete sa a.

Kenbe Timoun yo
Aktif Fizikman
Jwe Boul: Espò Sezon
an ak Lòt Aktivite
Si piti ou a (yo) renmen espò, gade si w
ka enskri l (yo) nan yonn espò pou sezon an,
tankou foutbòl pandan sezon otòn lan, oswa
baskètbòl prandan sezon ivè oswa prentan.
“Menm aktivite pwofesyonnèl yo fè, se sa nou
fè tou”, dapre deklarasyon Jeffrey Lagomacini,
ki se direktè edikasyon ak pwogram espesyal
pou Creative Learning & Play (CL&P) nan Vil
Hialeah, yon pwogram pou sezon ete ak pou
lè timoun pa lekòl. “Lè timoun yo gade moun
nan espò yo, oubyen yo ale nan yon match
Dolphin oswa Heat ap jwe, y ap [vin pran
gou nan] espò sa a, epi y ap vle jwe tou.”
Pou timoun ki pa renmen espò òganize,
gen plizyè lòt aktivite fizik oubyen espò ki pa
tradisyonnèl yo ka gade si yo vle fè, tankou
kous vitès, jimnastik, natasyon, tennis, bowling, Ping-Pong, hockey, paten sou wou, paten
sou glisyè, planch woulèt, oubyen menm
yoga. Menm jan ak nan lòt vil yo, Sèvis Pak
ak Rekreyasyon Vil Hialeah ofri plizyè kalite
aktivite pandan tout lane a pou timoun, sa ki
vle di tou pwogram ki pa atletik. Lagomacini
di tou: “Gen anpil timoun ki pa renmen espò,
Par Millie Acebal Rousseau
Li enpòtan pou kenbe pitit nou aktif fizikman, espesyalman
pandan Sezon Ete a, lè li ka difisil pou yo reziste tantasyon
chita devan televizyon oswa òdinatè. Gen timoun ki ka pito
fè yon espò pou yo rete aktif, men kapab gen lòt ki pito lòt
altènativ ak mwayen ki kreyatif, pou yo rete aktif.
“P
Espò Goumen
Espò goumen yo se yon bon kalite aktivite
pou timoun ki pa renmen espò ann ekip. Yo
gen 2 kalite avantaj: yo fè ni kò timoun lan, ni
lespri l vin pi fò. Prensipal objektif aktivite a,
se “ede timoun ki gen ADHD, oubyen reta
nan devlopman, oswa nan konpetans sosyal,
oswa nan kapasite pou yo aprann”, dapre
eksplikasyon Kelly Regalado, ki se direktè
pwogram nan United Martial Arts Academy.
Isit la, timoun yo tabli pwòp objektif yo, epi yo
chwazi teknik yo ta renmen metrize, epi sa
ede yo gen konfyans nan tèt yo. “Nan pami
lòt avantaj yo, gen amelyorasyon nan kowòdinasyon ti mis ak gwo mis yo, kontwòl gwosè
moun lan, [epi] pi bon [abitid] nan manje ak
nan lè dòmi”, dapre sa Regalado di. Akademi
a ofri yon kan ete ak yon pwogram apre
lekòl, kote timoun yo devlope fizik yo, ak fè
egzèsis ki koresponn avèk gwosè yo, laj yo, ak
nivo eksperyans yo. Timoun ki enskri nan kan
ete yo pase yon èdtan avèk yon pwofesè ki
sètifye pou lekti ak ekriti, epi yo patisipe nan
vizit eskolè, travay atis ak atizan, epi lòt kalite
aktivite. Pou plis enfòmasyon, ale nan adrès

Fit Kids of America (Timoun Ansante
nan Etazini)
Pwogram Fit Kids of America a ofri aktivite
pandan sezon ete epi apre lè lekòl, ki se yon
bon mwayen pou montre timoun yo yon gwo
varyete aktivite fizik, ak fè yo renmen egzèsis.
“Se pa tout moun ki renmen menm bagay; ou
ka renmen poul, san [ou] ou pa vle manje l
nan maten, ni nan midi, nan nan aswè”, dapre
Rhonda L. Smith, C.P.T., ko-direktè ak fondatè
Fit Kids of America. “Gen timoun ki renmen
baskètbòl, men nou mete yo an kontak avèk
tout lòt disiplin yo. Nou vle pèmèt yo jwenn
yon asnal ki gen diferan [aktivite], pou lè yo
pi gran, yo kapab vle di ‘Mwen nan baskètbòl,
men mwen sonje mwen renmen jwe foutbòl,
oswa mache sou tapi woulan.’ Ou dwe fè li
enteresan pou yo.”
Pwogram lan pran yon apwòch miltidisiplinè
pou egzèsis, kote li entegre espò ann ekip
avèk klas kilti fizik. Timoun yo jwenn yon tralye
aktivite fizik, tankou rakètbòl, Ping-Pong, bòks
kadyovaskilè avèk men ak pye, aewobik, baskètbòl, volebòl, foutbòl, sòfbòl, jwèt drapo, dans
hip-hop, ak egzèsis pou fòs. Fit for Kids America
ofri tou yon jimnaz modèn ki gen tout kalite
ekipman, tankou tapi woulan, mach eskalye
mekanik, bisiklèt, ak aparèy eliptik. Pou plis enfòmasyon, gade nan adrès fitkidsclub.com.
Ki Kantite ki se Twòp?
Paran yo konn eseye ale twò lwen, lè yo fè presyon pou yon timoun patisipe nan yon aktivite oswa yon espò. Gorski bay kèk konsèy pou veye kouman oumenm ak pitit ou a ap aji.

aran yo se ekspè
sou zafè pwòp pitit
yo; se yo ki konnen
ki pi bon [aktivite
pitit yo] ta renmen, epi ki ka ankouraje pitit
yo fè aktivite sa yo regilyèman”, dapre doktè
Peter A. Gorski, M.P.A., chèf sèvis sante
ak devlopman timoun nan The Children’s
Trust; li se yon pedyat pou devlopman ak
konpòtman tou, ki fè klas sou sante piblik,
swen pedyatrik ak sikyatri nan nivo inivèsitè.
“Epitou, ou pa bezwen fòse yon timoun pou
l jwe”, dapre sa Gorski di. “Si w konnen aktivite pitit ou renmen anpil, ankouraje li [yo]
epi ede li [yo] rive fè aktivite a regilyèman.”
Gorski di sa ki pi enpòtan pou w sonje, se
tanperaman pitit ou. Gen timoun ki renmen
espò òganize ann ekip, gen lòt ki renmen fè
egzèsis poukont yo. Epi tou, gen timoun ki
motive lè yo pran yon angajman sosyal, epi yo
gen tandans pou yo patisipe nan yon aktivite
lè yo avèk yon zanmi. Gen anpil timoun ki
kòlte kareman avèk nouvo sikonstans oubyen
nouvo defi, epi yo rive adapte, men gen lòt ki
bezwen yon ti ankourajman anplis. “Timoun
yo ap fè w konnen lè yo nan yon aktivite ki
enterese yo.”
Kidonk, kouman pou yon paran chwazi
aktivite ki koresponn avèk tanperaman pitit li?
Gorski konseye bay timoun yo chans patisipe
nan plizyè kalite aktivite, epi kite yo chwazi
kisa yo pi renmen yo. Apre sa, ou ka redui
kantite aktivite yo. Epitou, eseye ankouraje
pitit ou fè aktivite ou ta renmen fè avèk li,
tankou monte bisiklèt, mache, oswa jwe boul.
Jwèt Olenpik Sezon Ete a se yon bon opòtinite pou gade atlèt yo, epi pou rekonnèt ki
aktivite ki kapab enterese yon timoun.
men yo kapab danse, oswa jwe nan pyès
teyat, oswa ranpli wòl nan fim. Lagomacini
di “ Vil Hialeah a òganize tou yon pwogram
egzèsis vityèl, ki pèmèt timoun jwe avèk yon
Xbox oswa yon PlayStation, epi soti deyò pou
fè menm mouvman yo. Pou plis enfòmasyon,
gade nan adrès hialeahfl.gov.
• Si yon timoun sanble li pa renmen oubyen li pa alèz avèk yon nouvo aktivite li fenk
koumanse, gade pou w wè si se yon pwoblèm tan peraman, ki pral rezoud lè timoun lan adapte, oswa si timoun lan pa renmen sikonstans yo vre.
• Lè ou ale chèche timoun lan nan kote li patisipe nan aktivite a, mande l si li te jwenn aktivite a enteresan. “Timoun lan ap di w verite, si w mande l.” Si timoun lan di li pa renmen aktivite a, di l se pa yon pwoblèm. Gen anpil moun ki eseye plizyè bagay, an van yo rive jwenn sa yon renmen tout bon vre.
• Gade si gen siy fizik ki montre timoun lan pa kontan, tankou vant fè mal oswa fatig. Lòt siyal pwoblèm, se si timoun lan vin kriye fasil, oswa li pa manje oubyen dòmi byen, oswa li
plenyen plis. Si w wè nenpòt nan siy sa yo, kapab gen yon bagay ki pa nan enterè sante timoun lan. Mande timoun lan kouman li santi kò l, kouman aktivite a ap mache, epi si gen nenpòt moun k ap anbete l. Pwoblèm lan kapab pa nan aktivite a, men nan lòt timoun oswa monitè a k ap anbete timoun lan.
• Si pitit ou a montre yon nivo ennèji nòmal – oubyen menm plis ennèji – nan aktivite woutin l ap fè nan kay la, tankou nan fè devwa lekòl li, oswa lè l ap manje, lè sa a se yon bon siy ki fè w konnen pitit ou a pa gen tèt chaje.

Bibliyotèk Ou
Par Millie Acebal Rousseau
Pou Timoun yo pa Bliye sa yo
lan. Gen yon sijè yo chwazi chak ane, epi fanmi yo siyen pou yo resevwa
yon tiliv. Konsa, paran yo ka kontwole kote liv pitit yo fin li yo pase, pou fè
bibliyotèk la konnen. Lè sa a, bibliyotèk la ap mete ansanm avèk patnè nan
kominote a pou bay rekonpans pou lekti, tankou iPod, òdinatè ki konnekte
nan Entènèt, sistèm Nintendo DS avèk jwèt ladan yo, seri jwèt Baby Einstein,
ankadreman pou fè desen koulè, tablo jwèt, ak koupon kado pou Barnes &
Noble ak Toys “R” Us. “Sa ou li a pa gen enpòtans, depi ou li yon bagay”, dapre Louisdhon-Louinis. “Timoun yo li sou kèk sijè, epi nou peye aktè, moun
ki rakonte istwa, dansè, kloun, ak majisyen pou vin jwe pou yo.”
Aprann pandan Sezon Ete a
Par Millie Acebal Rousseau
Gliswa nan teren jwèt ak Sezon Ete mache ansanm, men
sa yo rele “summer slide” [Bliye sa yo aprann pandan
Sezon Ete] a, se lè timoun yo koumanse bliye sa yo te
aprann lekòl, pandan yo an vakans pou Sezon Ete a.
Reading Ready (Preparasyon pou Lekti)
Pwogram Reading Ready Early Literacy (Preparasyon pou fè Lekti Bonè)
a fèt yon jan pou ankouraje ak amelyore kapasite lekti timoun ki tou piti
jiska laj 5 an. Bibliyotèk la ofri tou plizyè pwogram edikasyon ak anrichisman
kiltirèl pou timoun ki gen ant 5 ak 8 an, tankou prezantasyon moun selèb ki
ekri liv vin fè, ak rakonte istwa; genyen mizik ak danse, travay atis ak atizan,
istwa pou fanmi timoun rakonte yo anvan yo dòmi, epi pwogram pou fè
lekti pou lòt moun koute w. Nan sit Entènèt bibliyotèk la, gen konsèy pou
paran, tankou ki jan pou yo fè jès ak dwèt yo, epi chante pou pare timoun
yo pou aprann li. Sit Entènèt bibliyotèk la ofri resous elektwonnik tou, ansanm ak konneksyon sou lòt sit kote paran moun ka fè jwèt edikatif avèk
pitit yo nan òdinatè ak nan liv, pou fè imajinasyon timoun yo travay.
L
ucrece Louisdhon-Louinis, ki se asistan direktè nan Kontak
Kominotè/Pwogramasyon ak Sèvis Espesyal nan Sistèm
Bibliyotèk Piblik Miami-Dade la, di: “Nou pote resous siplemantè pou pèmèt fanmi yo gen aksyon youn ak lòt nan
akitivite tankou jwèt, konvèsasyon sou lekti yo fè, pwogram sou travay atis,
ansanm ak lòt pwogram literè ak pwogram pou anmizman.
Chak ane, bibliyotèk la òganize plis pase 1000 aktivite espesyal, tankou
prestidijitasyon ak espetak sou lavi nan forè, rakonte istwa, jwe pyès teyat,
ak atelye sou ekriti, mizik, dans, louvri mikwofòn, epi bay istwa, travay atis ak
atizan, klas yota, epi menm tounwa pingpong.
Bibliyotèk la, se yon bon jan resous, espesyalman pandan sezon ete a, lè
ou pa vle pitit ou a bliye sa li aprann lekòl. Gen anpil branch lokal ki òganize
pwogram pou rakonte istwa nan maten ak nan apremidi, ansanm ak travay
atis avèk atizan.Timoun yo kapab menm patisipe nan jwèt sou òdinatè, epi
travay an gwoup. Men kèk nan plizyè pwogram bibliyotèk la ofri:
Pwogram Lekti pou Sezon Ete
Pwogram lekti pou sezon ete nan bibliyotèk la mete lavi nan liv pitit
ou renmen yo, lè li fè rakonte istwa ak òganize aktivite.Timoun yo ka jwe
wòl nan istwa yo, pou yo tounen pèsonnaj yo renmen nan yon liv istwa.
Oubyen, si yo travay avèk atis yo, timoun yo ka patisipe nan travay atis ak
atizan ki pèmèt devlope kreyativite ak talan literè yo.
Pwogram lan fèt pou twa kategori laj: timoun ki fenk fèt jiska laj12 an, adolesan ant 13 ak 18 an, epi moun majè ki depase 18 an. Pwogram lan eseye
ede timoun yo kenbe ak amelyore kapasite lekti ki koresponn avèk lane
yo fenk fini an. Nou ankouraje paran yo jwe yon wòl aktif nan pwogram
D
apre Asosyasyon Nasyonnal pou
Aprann pandan Sezon Eta a (National
Summer Learning Association), tout timoun,
kèlkeswa nivo ekonomik yo, pèdi an mwayenn 1 mwa konnesans pandan Sezon Ete a.
Pou matematik, yo ka pèdi menm 2 mwa.
Timoun nan fanmi pòv yo ka pèdi jiska 3
mwa konnesans nan rannman pou lekti. “Plis
gen tan ki pase, se plis diferans yo ogmante”,
dapre eksplikasyon Kate Shatzkin, ki se direktris komèsyalizasyon ak kominikasyon nan
National Summer Learning Association. “Lè
yo rive nan senkyèm lane, [elèv] yo pèdi plis
pase 2 lane nan kapasite lekti yo.” Rechèch
montre tou, sa gen yon korelasyon avèk kantite elèv lise ki kite lekòl.
Kòm bon nouvèl, nou ka di gen mwayen
pou ede pitit ou a, epi pou anpeche l bliye sa
li aprann pandan Sezon Ete a. Premye mwayen an, se fè timoun lan fè lekti pandan Sezon
Ete a, dapre konsèy Shatzkin bay. Si timoun yo
twò jenn pou fè lekti poukont li, fè lekti pou
yo. Pou yon timoun ki pi gran, poze yo kesyon
sou lekti yo fè a. Anvan lekòl fèmen, mande
pwofesè a pou w vin pale avèk li, epi mande
l ki konnesans ki pral enpòtan nan koumansman lane ki pral vini apre a. Mande pwofesè a
rekòmande sit Entènèt ak lòt resous ki ka itil,
pou travay sou konnesans sa yo.
Julie Hardy, ki se yon pwofesè matematik
nan nivo entèmedyè nan Devon Aire K-8
Center, rekòmande pou paran yo gade pwogram matematik yo sou Entènèt, pou ede pitit
Travay ann Ekip avèk Pwofesè
Mande pwofesè pitit ou a lis lekti pou Sezon Ete a – lis la ap varye dapre
lekòl la, ak dapre klas la. Ale nan bibliyotèk la avèk pitit ou, epi eseye jwenn
tout kantite liv ou kapab, ki nan lis la. Si w bezwen, mande yon anplwaye
bibliyotèk la ede w. “Paran yo dwe chèche konnen nan ki nivo pitit yo ye
pou klas yo, epi chwazi liv nan plizyè sijè”, dapre deklarasyon doktè Marisel
Elias-Miranda, ki se direktè administratif nan Sèvis pou Timoun Piti nan
Lekòl Piblik Miami-Dade County a. “Paran yo dwe mennen pitit [yo] nan
bibliyotèk piblik la, epi ankouraje yo patisipe nan aktivite bibliyotèk la òganize
pou timoun laj yo.”
Resous Elektwonnik
Bibliyotèk la ofri tou, sou Entènèt, TumbleBookLibrary, ki se yon lojisyèl lekti entèaktif ki genyen ladan l liv pòtre klasik. Timoun yo ka li oswa
koute, pandan y ap gade liv sou Entènèt. SmartyGames.com se yon lòt
pwogram gratis ki ofri jwèt ekdikatif pou ede timoun yo nan matematik ak nan lekti. Louisdhon-Louinis di: “Nan aktivite yo fè sou òdinatè,
timoun yo pran yon bon eksperyans nan lekti.” Gen liv tou pou timoun
ki pral antre nan adolesans ak timoun ki nan adolesans yo. Nan adrès
mdpls.org, paran yo ka jwenn pi bon liv ki genyen pou jenn moun ki
majè, ansanm ak liv pèsonnèl bibliyotèk la chwazi. Lojisyèl TumbleBokk la
pèmèt jwenn woman grafik manga, ki popilè anpil pami adolesan yo.

Te gen yon tan, yon bibliyotèk te
yon refij trankil, yon kote pou timoun
prete liv, pou yo li san fè bwi, oswa fè
rechèch, oswa fè devwa lekòl yo. Jodi
a, yon bibliyotèk se plis anpil pase sa.

yo kenbe konnesans yo. Gen plizyè sit Entènèt
ki fè peye yon ti lajan pou aksè pandan 1 oswa
2 mwa. Li di tou, Lekòl Piblik Miami-Dade yo
(M-DCPS) ofri pwogram vityèl pandan Sezon
Ete a, kote elèv yo ka pran klas sou Entènèt.
Pou antre nan pwogram sa yo, se nan pòtay
elèv yo pou w pase, men ou dwe mande konseye pitit ou a enskri w anvan ou ka fè sa.
Yon lòt resous itil, se M-DCPS Parent
Academy; ou ka antre ladan l nan adrès
dadeschools.net, si w klike sou etikèt pou
paran an [Parents]. Se la w ap jwenn aktivite
pou fanmi aprann, ak lis lekti pou Sezon Ete
a, ak konneksyon pou antre nan sit Entènèt
pou edikasyon, tankou College Bound, ki
ede timoun aprann pandan Sezon Ete a.
M-DCPS ofri sèvis pwofesè prive tou, pandan Sezon Ete a.
Rechèch montre lè paran yo pase plis tan
ap pale oubyen ap fè lekti pou pitit yo, sa
kapab ede timoun yo travay pi byen lekòl,
menm si yo pa nan yon fanmi ki gen lajan, dapre deklarasyon David Reitman, Ph.D., pwofesè
asosye ak direktè nan pwogram Evalyasyon,
Konsiltasyon, ak Tretman ADHD a (ADHD
Assessment, Consultation and Treatment
Program), nan Nova Southeastern University.
Paran yo dwe chèche pwogram pou sezon
ete ki gen bon kalite eksperyans, tankou pwogram The Children’s Trust finanse yo. Reitman
di “Youn nan pi bon bagay timoun yo ka fè,
se patisipe nan pwogram Sezon Ete yo ak
nan lòt aktivite kote yo gen pou yo fè lekti,
ekri, ak kontinye travay sou lòt konnesans yo
bezwen pou travay byen nan saldeklas yo ak
nan lavi.” Reitman se direktè tou nan Project
RISE nan Sant pou Etid Sikolojik (Center for
Psychological Studies) inivèsite a. Nou ankouraje paran ki enterese yo rele, pou mande ki
aktivite yo ofri, epi si posib pou yo ede kòm
volontè. Reitman di paran ki patisipe nan aktivite pitit yo gen yon pi bon preparasyon pou
ede pitit yo pandan wikenn ak nan aswè, pou
ale pi lwen pase leson yo aprann yo.

Èske ou te konnen?
h Pi bon jan pou timoun yo aprann,
se lè yo fè pratik nan jwèt ki ede
yo sonje. Lè sa posib, chèche
entegre konnesans yo nan yon jwèt.
Sonje byen, pi bon jan pou timoun yo aprann,
se lè konnesans y ap pran yo gen yon sans pou
yo, epi yo dwe kapab konnekte konnesans yo
ak sikonstans ki konn rive tout bon nan lavi a.
“Timoun yo dwe kapab konprann kouman
konnesans yo pran yo pral kapab ede yo nan
sikonstans ki konn rive tout bon nan lavi a”,
dapre opinyon doktè Marisel Elias-Miranda, ki
se direktè administratif nan Sèvis M-DCPS pou
Pwogram Jenn Timoun yo (M-DCPS Office of
Early Childhood Programs).
Pran Plezi nan Aprann
Ou pa oblije depanse lajan pou ede pitit
ou kontinye aprann pandan Sezon Ete a. Ale
nan bibliyotèk, ak nan mize, ak nan lòt òganizasyon kiltirèl pandan jou gratis pou fanmi
yo, epi chèche lòt aktivite kreyatif, ki pa koute
chè, ou ka fè lakay ou. Men kèk egzanp:
• Travay sou fraksyon pandan n ap fè manje ansanm, epi double sa ki nan resèt yo.
• Travay sou adisyon ak soustraksyon nan konpare pri yo, nan kote yo vann manje.
• Fè preparasyon vityèl pou yon vakans an fanmi, epi mande timoun yo chèche
konnen ki kantite gazolin n ap bezwen pou rive nan kote a, ansanm ak lòt
konsiderasyon sou bidjè vwayaj la; fè yo gade tou istwa, kilti, ak jeyografi kote nou prale a.
• Kalkile perimèt, ak sifas, epi plante yon jaden.
• Pou aprann yon timoun devlope kapasite kritik ak kapasite analiz li, gade yon pyès teyat oubyen yon fim ansanm, epi mande timoun lan eksplike sa li wè a; oubyen li yon liv ansanm epi pale sou sa istwa a vle di, ak kisa istwa a genyen ki anrapò avèk lavi timoun lan.
