How to choose pupils' schoolbag?

Schoolbags is an essential learning tool for pupils. More and more parents pay more attention to the election of backpacks. Other than price and style, the first important thing is healthy development of pupils. Here are some tips:

1. You should choose wide straps and shoulder pads. It would be better if schoolbag has belt, which can uniformly reduce the stress and won't do harm to back and shoulder.

2. Check every parts in the schoolbags manufacturer.It's good to have more partitions. Books and pencil cases are placed in categories in different partitions, which can distribute schoolbags' weight evenly.

3. Less pockets and meshes on schoolbags are better, otherwise, it's dangerous for easily being hooked by sharp subjects. Excessive metal buckles and zippers not only add the schoolbags' weight but also do harm to waist and back.

4. It's better to has cushion on the back of knapsack, which helps to cooling. And children won't get sweaty.

5. Take satchel into consideration. Choose the minimum size as long as it can hold all books and stationary. Generally, the width of schoolbag should be short than that of children' body; the bottom should be 10 cm higher than children' waist.

6. Materials are important. Choose light nylon or canvas schoolbags instead of leather or other thick materials. http://www.bags-center.cn/

Can Muslim pre school children listen to music?

There are so many cultures in today's society that it's hard to keep up with what is and what is not allowed. It's not so much Muslims, but the religion of Islam that has a problem with music. SOME people who practice Islam believe that music is forbidden. This includes listening to music, playing musical instruments, and singing songs. There are some Muslim parents who have decided that their children should not listen to music, because of their religion.

While I think it's wrong for a parent to make that kind of religious choice for their child, there's not really much that you can do about it as a teacher. A couple of solutions to diffuse the situation and keep the parents happy:
Talk to the parents - have a conversation with the parents about music and the role that it plays in your classroom. Explain which days you listen to music or have music themed classes and advise the parents that they may wish to not bring their child on that day

Talk to the child - explain to the child that their mom and/or dad does not want them participating in music activities. Offer the child a quiet alternative that will not distract the other children for him/her to participate in while the rest of the class has music time

Take the child to another classroom - if you have another classroom with similar aged children nearby, arrange for the child to go visit the other classroom for the period of time while your class will be participating in music activities

Finally, if all else fails, tell the parents it's your classroom and if they cannot agree with your policies that your class may not be the best place for their child.

How to Choose Children's Shoes?

When purchasing a first pair for your chaild you should consider the following things: 1.Wait to buy shoes until your child starts to walk.
When it's time for your baby's first pair of shoes, take your well rested, recently fed child to a quality children's shoe store that stock brands such as Stride Rite and Elefanten. The best stores have patient and knowledgeable salespeople who are expert at fitting children's feet.
3.Have the salesperson measure the length and width of both of the child's feet. Many babies have an extra wide foot and may need a special size.
Make sure the shoes aren't too big, which can cause a baby to trip. First shoes should be soft and pliable to let new walkers feel the ground.
