LOVE LANGUAGES and LEARNING

RECOGNIZING THE DIFFERENT WAYS 
IN WHICH WE LOVE

Hello!  If you're new to this blog, welcome and I encourage you to scroll through the many blogs of my colleagues.  From Debbie Clement to Dr. Danny Brassell to Mimi Chenfeld and many more.  My blog today is actually a vlog.  A story told almost completely in video.  Enjoy how teachers Melissa and Edith from the Santa Rosa Head Start program in Tucson, Arizona have used Dr. Chapman's Five Love Languages to elevate how they connect with children and their families.  You'll see how they have created a child-created resource that is helping parents understand their children in a deeper, more meaningful way.  Click and enjoy!


Buen Dia!  Si eres nuevo a este blog, bienvendio!  Te animo tambien a ver los blogs de mis colegas que estan escrito arriba en íngles.  Mi blog hoy es verdadermente un vlog.  Un cuento dicho con video, pero como algunos no hablan íngles hay mucho en español escrito para ayudar a mis colegas del mundo Latino conocer mas de esta tema.  Las maestras Melissa y Edith son de la programa prescolar Santa Rosa Head Start.  Ellos han usado la información del libro "Los Cinco Lenguajes de Amor" (Click para ver el libro en Amazon) de Dr. Chapman para elevar como ellos conectan con los niños  en su clase y sus padres.  Tambien, crearon un libro con los niños que se usa para ayudar a los padres entender mas sobre esta tema.  Con amor y un abrazo fuerte!

LOVE LANGUAGES and LEARNING - PART III (3:13)




I encourage you to know your love languages and use that critical information in how you invite children into learning environments.  Thanks again to Melissa and Edith!


Te animo a conocer los idiomas de amor para usar esa información crítico en como invitas a niños al aprendizaje profundo.  Gracias a las maestras Melissa y Edith!


Enjoy this screen shots from the videos which highlight how the children and families "knew they were loved."


Aqui tienes un imagen del video que te enseña que los niños y padres estaban aprendiendo sobre los idiomas de amor.



CAN YOU GUESS WHICH LOVE LANGUAGE EACH RESPONSE REPRESENTS?
Physical, Words, Quality Time, Gifting or Acts of Service?

PUEDES ADIVINAR CUAL ES EL IDOMA DE AMOR CON CADA RESPUESTA?
Físico, Palabras, Tiempo de Calidad, Regalos, or Actos de Servicio?






Each answer gives you an idea of how each individual child "recognizes" that they are loved.


Cada respuesta te da un idea de como el niño reconóce que el o ella están amado.


Below is one response where the child says his daddy gave him a telescope so he could see his daddy when he was away.  


Abajo la respuesta del niño dice que su padre le compró un telescopio y asi el niño puede ver a su padre cuando el no esta en casa....ahhhhh.



This response was in Spanish.  The translation is "My daddy shows me he loves me when he takes me to work and I get to be big.  My mommy shows me she loves me when she takes me to school.... she cares about me."


Abajo la respuesta es en español.  Puedes leyerlo y pensar sobre cual es la idioma de este niño.

How do you show others you love them?  How do you like to be loved?  Just thinking about these questions can create changes that improve the quality of life for you and everyone around you.  


Como enseñamos a otros que los queremos?  Como te gusta ser amado?  Empesando con estas preguntas podemos elevar nuestra calidad de vida y la calidad de vida para todos en nuestro mundo.


Below is an example of a child who's love language is "Acts of Service".  Enjoy Anthony's artwork and his response to the question "How do you know your family loves you?"  Keep in mind that this is very different from the question "Do they love you?"


Abajo tienes un ejemplo de un niño y su idioma de amor es "Actos de Servicios."  Goza al arte del niño Antonio y su respuesta a la pregunta "Como sabes que to familia te ama?"  Toma en cuenta que esta pregunta es muy diferente a la prejunta "Te ama tu familia?"

  1. Great job! I learnt a lot about myself and my family through that book many years ago. Good on you for applying it to engaging a child into learning also.

  2. I love hearing that Love Languages are being used in teaching! I found them very helpful in understanding my own family.

    1. Hi Deb! Thanks fo the re-pin! I also have used the love languages personally in many ways. It was so exciting to see how these teachers were using them with parents who had never heard of the love languages. Cheers!

  4. Thank you so much for the words of kindness and affirmation Carolyn! It was quite a treat to see what those teachers did with the basic information that I shared with them. They are part of a large Head Start program my Foundation has been working with since 2001. To see them take the essentials from the Love Languages and then engage children and families in such a meaningful way is what it's all about. Thanks for all you do!
