Happy New Year

Happy New Year

A meaningful lyric from John Lennon’s So This Is Christmas customized for New Year. Hope you find it inspiring.

Happy New Year ~~ LOVE MORE & BE LOVED.

So this is New Year
And what have you done
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so this is New Year
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very Happy New Year
And a blissful New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is New Year
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so wrong

And so happy New Year
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very Happy New Year
And a blissful New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

And so this is New Year
And what have we done
Another year over
And a new one just begun

And so this is New Year
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
A very Happy New Year

And a blissful New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any fear

War is over over
If you want it
War is over
Now…

V.A.K Approach towards Whole Brain Learning

Naturally, children have vast potentials of brain power since birth. However, most of them do not know how to maximize their brain power and thus fail to realize their hidden capabilities.

But way ahead of the competition, the AMA Academy breaks through such traditional obstacles and exceeds expectations every time! One of the unique is the use of V.A.K Approach in AMA  Programmes and Workshops.

VAK APPROACH-page-001

V.A.K is a popular educational approach centered on the uses of three main sensory receivers which are visual, auditory and kinesthetic. The human brain has evolved to operate and develop in a multisensory environment and we are programmed to process multisensory signals. Inputs, that are multisensory, provide different hooks for retrieving information allowing faster learning and improved recall and interpretation of information.

In summary, V.A.K approach enables teachers to present the lessons in a way that works for student’s brain instead of trying to make student’s brain work with a set of curriculum.

To know more about V.A.K Approach that used in AMA Academy Workshop & Programmes, kindly contact us at 03 – 4108 6368 or email at contactama.my@gmail.com

Feed your Brain with Rainbow!

appleThis phrase is very powerful and meaningful. Nowadays, many people not giving priority to healthy eating habits. As long as the food we eat able to satisfy our hunger and taste is sufficient to continue the routine.  However, do we think of the food we eat is it healthy? The answer is very rare. In addition to that, we overlook the colour of the food we eat.

Healthy eating habits are an important component of lifelong health. One of the best ways to make sure you eat a healthy variety of fruits and vegetables – and all the nutrients that they provide – is to “eat a rainbow”. Eating rainbow colours is very crucial especially for children. Thus, dazzle your children with variety colours of vegetables and fruits like red, green, yellow, blue, white, orange and purple. The variety of colours not only provides eye candy for the children but the mixing things up gives them a broad range of nutrients and created a rainbow on their plates.

Rainbow helps to enhance brain function

Physical Screening

Difficulties in maintaining proper pencil grip and the action of writing may hinder the ability to think and write at the same time, and the transfer of information from the brain to paper through the body. This undeveloped fine motor skills will further hinder learning tasks and academic performance. Research shown a clear link between poor physical coordination in primary school and performance in literacy and numeracy tests take at the age of 11.

Fine motor handwriting

Children should be given adequate opportunity to develop their physical coordination, balance and correct posture before embarking on school. Students who encounter challenges in reading or sitting still in the classroom may be due to the lack of physical maturity, such as eye-hand coordination and control of eye movements, for learning.

Parents are encouraged to send their children for physical screening to screen for the development difficulties. Expert suggest screening to take place at the age of 4 or 5 with repeat tests at 8 and 11 before moving on secondary education. Screening helps to identify children with underlying problems in re-integrating and reapplying the physical coordination they should have picked up in the course of development.

Factors contributing to developmental difficulties are reduced physical activities, increasing time spent on TV and video games, medical problems in pregnancy, birth or the first year of life and changes in the social and environments.
