Today I want to talk to you about the city in which I live and how beautiful it is to live in it. March has been my first month living here and every day I like this city more.
Bielsko Biala is a city in southern Poland and is named for the two towns it is composed of located on the bank of the Biala River. You can also do natural and cultural activities. Since it is close to the Beskidy Mountains, it has different museums and history.
This week I am taking advantage of it to learn more, discovering very beautiful and ideal places to read, take a coffee in the sun or meet people.
Speaking of reading, this week I have started reading a very interesting book by the German author Henning Köhler that was recommended to me by a classmate and teacher at the Waldorf School.
The title in Spanish is “Cómo educar a los niños temerosos, tristes o inquietos” in Polish it is known by the name of “O dzieciach lękliwych, smutnych i niespokojnych”.
To solve these problems he discovers that they are directly related to deficiencies in the development of the volitional senses (touch, vital, movement and balance) in early childhood and gives us different indications of how to cultivate them.
In my case, this book is making new knowledge about pedagogy that will be useful for me and for my work at school.
I don’t know if you prefer real or digital books, I always choose real books because I like their smell and texture. But be it real or digital, I recommend that you read this or another book since by reading you exercise your mind, you move it, you revolutionize it and you develop it. Producing restlessness when knowing new things and accessing different worlds through your imagination. Something similar is experienced traveling, discovering new cultures and meeting new people.
So go ahead, read, travel and discover new places! Maybe you can start with Bielsko Biala.
