This bilingual book contains short, bright poems about animals, composed in English and Lithuanian. The poems are accompanied with warm, colourful illustrations. For toddlers who have just started composing first sentences such playful rhymes would be very useful in accustoming their little ears to more than one language. In her book “Mano gyvūnai. My Animals” JenningsDidžiulis introduces 12 great animals: a purring cat, an extremely friendly dog, a tall yellow giraffe, a charming monkey, a penguin wearing a tailcoat, a big lazy elephant, a glorious roaming lion, a little squeaking mouse, a green jumping frog, a shy deer, a bird with an extremely hard beak, and a sleepyhead honey-loving bear. “Mano gyvūnai. My Animals” is like a textbook for readers of various ages. This book is also useful for children from nurseries and elementary schools where those little scholars are learning English from the very first days. Musical rhymes will be helpful for toddlers who have just started forming first short sentences to get some knowledge about two languages. What about the adult readers? Parents who still consider their English very poor can enjoy this book as a basic learning tool and for artistic personalities it may serve as an adviser on choosing some new poems worth learning by heart and reciting to Santa Claus.

This picture book about fun adventures of a smart and creative little mouse named Anicetas is for the youngest readers. Let’s meet the little mouse Anicetas. He is almost like you: vigilant, with twinkling little eyes, wide open little ears and a long tail... Oh, excuse me, you, children, do not have tails. There are always plenty of bright and wild ideas ashing through Anicetas’ mind. He is never bored as there is simply no time for boredom, something is happening all the time. I have drawn up all those adventures into this book. I simply cannot stop drawing. When I was a little girl, even tables and chairs were decorated with my drawings, the same situation was with boring books that lacked illustrations. Finally, my parents sent me to Kaunas School of Art. Not only because this particular school was near our home. The main reason was that in that school I was finally free to draw during lessons. Later, I graduated from ilnius State Institute of Art and began drawing illustrations for children’s books, written by professional writers. But Anicetas is a pure product of my imagination and fantasies – this little mouse is mine from his nose to the tip of his tail. I live in ilnius and London. And a bit in between, in planes, as I am constantly migrating between those cities. I feel free to paint and draw wherever I want: on walls, in books, on theatre stages, even on ships.

Starting from September many pre-schoolers will travel the world of knowledge together with the main characters of the learning tool kit – Yo and Ho. The authors of the kit, with many years of experience in educating little children, and who have written the highly popular primary school learning tools, “Pupa”, developed this educational material on the basis of the project of the renewed General Curriculum Framework for Pre-Primary Education and Self-Education (in 2013, the first part of the kit) and on the approved program (in 2014, the second and third parts of the kit). This kit will help integrate and develop the competency necessary for a child’s life and education (self-education). The distinction between individual competence is conditional, because different activities develop abilities that are attributed to different areas of competence. The Principles of Learning Material Presentation The integrated learning material is divided into themes which correspond to nature’s calendar. A lot of time is dedicated to practical activities, such as tests or experiments. The children are taught how to work on their own (for example, they have to look at a big group poster or a part of it, which is marked by a frame, and to find the same part in their books; after that, they have to compare, analyse, and name the similarities and dissimilarities of the parts they have found.) Each group poster is dedicated to one particular week.

34

Pre-schoolers are introduced with letters and numbers. The rate of learning is slow. The letters are categorized according to the number of composing elements; for example the letter I is composed of one stick, letters like T,V,L are composed of two sticks, letters A, K, Y, Z, Ž, H, F, N – three sticks, letters E, Ė, M – four sticks. After that, come categories of letters with curves, bows, or baskets. The children are taught how to build letters from strips or how to make letters with their bodies. At this age, the children are introduced only to capital letters (no caudata[tailed vowels} letters). Each week is devoted to the next letter in the alphabet. Plenty of exercises are given in the exercise notebook. Introduction to numbers: knowledge of numbers up to 5 is repeated and consolidated in September; after that, children are introduced to numbers 7, 8, 9, 10 and 0. The children are given one-anda-half weeks to learn this. The exercises involve many things or drawings of things; children learn to compare, group, add, subtract, identify simple planar figures, and orient themselves in space. A lot of attention is given to following specific instructions.


The exercises, devoted to training artistic and health care competence (for example, art, music, dance, movement, acting), are given in the teacher’s book. Regarding children’s abilities, the teacher should select the most suitable competencies and interpret them creatively (this should be done with all the teaching material). The group calendar, which presents the most important events of the group and possible homework, is devoted to working with the families of children (at home, children and their parents should browse through a book, and talk about the given themes, etc.).

35


How to work with the tool kit Yo Ho! Each week has: 1 poster; 4 book flaps of the child’s book (2 pages each); 6-8 pages of notepad tasks; 4-8 additional worksheets; relevant recordings; interactive tasks developed for some of the themes;

material for the group calendar; detailed descriptions of each day’s activities (recommended, but optional) in the teacher’s book.

Group poster – a coloured illustration of the week’s theme. The week starts with a general discussion about the poster. It is recommended that different parts of the poster (sub-themes) are emphasized each day by a frame. Seeing the framed part of the poster, the children will concentrate better and focus on a specific image. The framed section is presented on the left side of the Pre-schooler Book’s flap. The children are taught to work independently with the book: looking at the framed part of the poster and comparing it to a specific page in their books. They will look for similarities and differences between them and point them out. Almost all the flaps on the left have from 1 to 5 differences – except in some cases where the child’s book will provide an exact copy of the poster. km

Teachers’ opinion This Set gives the teacher time to observe and listen to children, to find out about their needs. I’m glad that the teacher can spend more time with children instead of searching for some new activities, ideas, or books. The child has an opportunity to gain knowledge on his/her own: the set allows children to compare, observe, experiment, ask questions, share experience etc. The Set is full of new, attractive ideas, which are not only suitable for children, but also help the teacher at his/her work with children (The Morning Circle). Aldona Kaminskienė, Kaišiadorys Nursery-kindergarten „Spindulys“

The contents and the structure of The Set fully correspond to the standards of preschool education. Working with the material which is provided by this set, all five competences of pre-schoolers are trained: it evokes the children’s wish to acknowledge, discover, analyse, and discuss; it also trains children’s writing and practical skills; and it motivates children to be creative, think logically, and draw conclusions, etc. The set also allows the teacher to individuate or differentiate the learning process. This meets the requirements of a preschool learning programme. Children’s paintings and other creative works became more original and colourful, and their pictures now have more new details like balconies, columns, stairs, foundations or smoky chimneys. Before using this Set, the children’s pictures had no such features. Albina Kunigonienė, Raiseiniai Nursery-kindergarten „Liepaitė“

I’m very pleased that The Set offers some references; some of them refer to important literary works. The learning can be enlivened with the help of interactive tasks. It is a strong and solid system. Jovita Niauronienė, Panevėžys County Dembava Nurserykindergarten „Smalsutis“

Planning the educational activities, it is very important to consider the different abilities of children, to leave some space for creative interpreting and to create some role-playing games, through which children can test their communication and collaboration skills practically. This can be easily achieved with the help of this Set. Daiva Navickienė, Kuršėnai Nursery-kindergarten „Nykštukas“

It is a wonderful achievement that the activities are versatile; the children can walk about, change the place of the activity or the tools, or even gather in groups. It is very important for children. The pre-schoolers liked the suggested exploratory activities – for instance, playing with straws or sticks. We even explored some plastic straws and tried to imagine what would change if one of the little pigs had built a house out of such straws. Rita Daukšienė, Radviliškis County Šeduva Nursery-kindergarten

This educational aid is intended to develop the artistic communication, cognitive, social and health competence of preschoolers. The folder consists of sheets with painted various small parts of things. The children cut them out and fulfilling the tasks create nice articles of paper. So small children decorate, draw, paint, colour, cut, fold, weave, glue – they develop their artistic skills, imagination, accuracy of hand movements, eye and hand coordination. Fulfilling the consistent tasks the children are getting used to monitor their activities, concentrate and maintain focus for a longer time, develop their diligence, patience, thoroughness and wish for a better result. The children can decorate the environment of their home or preschool – hang their works on the walls, attach to the curtains, put on the table or decorate the windowsills. Their works can also be a nice gift to their mothers, fathers, grandparents, a friend or teacher. So the children learn to express their love and attention. A small creator can have an exhibition of his or her works and be proud of them when the guests come. That makes the child happy and promotes his or her self-confidence. R AGANAIT Ė

• Siekiant apsisaugoti nuo gripo, peršalimo, šaltuoju metų laiku, ypač siaučiant epidemijoms, rekomenduojama daugiau valgyti česnakų. • Nuo kirmėlių. Vaikams česnakų vandens užpilo klizmomis šalinamos spalinės. Ruošiant užpilą vienai stiklinei vandens reikia 2–3 smulkiai supjaustytų skiltelių česnako.

Alavijas (seniau vadintas alijošiumi). Šią kambarinę gėlę, kuri asocijuojasi su senų močiučių namais, jau „reabilitavo“ ne vienas. Joje mokslininkai surado daugiau kaip 160 skirtingų medžiagų, veiksmingai gydančių organizmą. Alavijuje yra 13 skirtingų vitaminų ir tiek pat mineralinių medžiagų, 15 fermentų, kelios aminorūgštys, riebiųjų rūgščių, daugiau kaip 10 įvairių angliavandenių, žaizdų gijimą skatinančių saponinų, eterinių aliejų ir daug kitų medžiagų. Taigi alavijui, kuris vaistams vartotas jau senovės Egipte, atsirado vietos ir ant šiuolaikinių butų palangių. Vaistinei žaliavai reikėtų naudoti 2–4 metų augalo lapus, skinti juos ne trumpesnius kaip 15 cm. Prieš skinant augalo lapus vaistams, derėtų jo keletą dienų nelaistyti. Nuskintus lapus patariama biologiškai stimuliuoti (keliose vietose jie įpjaunami ar kitaip sužeidžiami ir apie 2 savaites laikomi tamsoje 6–8 laipsnių temperatūroje), kad pasigamintų žymiai daugiau biogeninių stimuliatorių. Alavijo preparatus rekomenduojama vartoti ne ilgiau kaip savaitę. Jei iš lapų išspaudžiamos sultys, jas reikia suvartoti iš karto, nes ilgiau laikant jos praranda gydomąjį poveikį. NAUDINGI PATARIMAI

89 Medicina

• Skaudamą gerklę skalaukite alavijo sultimis, atskiestomis virintu vandeniu (santykiu 1:1), ir tris kartus per dieną išgerkite po arbatinį šaukštelį sulčių, užgerdami jas pienu. • Jei žaizdos ilgai negyja, ant jų reikia dėti nuluptus alavijo lapus arba jų košelę. Tvarsčius keisti kas 2 valandas. • Alavijų lapų minkštimas gali būti naudojamas odai valyti ir prižiūrėti – jame esančios drėkinamosios medžiagos įsiskverbia tris kartus greičiau už vandenį. Oda tampa elastingesnė, stangresnė, taip pašalinami ant odos esantys nešvarumai, išvengiama odos sausėjimo. • Alavijo sultys profilaktiškai vartojamos kaip organizmo imunitetą stiprinantis vaistas, ypač rekomenduojamas šaltuoju metų laiku. Alavijo sultys yra specifinio skonio, tad rekomenduojama jas skiesti kitomis sultimis (santykiu 1:1).

ATSARGIAI!

Kam alavijo vartoti negalima Alavijas kai kuriems žmonėms gali sukelti alergines reakcijas, jo taip pat negalima vartoti sergantiems kepenų, tulžies pūslės, inkstų ir šlapimo pūslės ligomis, hipertonija, nėščioms ir maitinančioms moterims, menstruacijų metu, jaunesniems nei 12 metų vaikams.

Šaltalankiai. Šaltalankio uogose yra P, B1, B2, K, E vitaminų, folio rūgšties, karotino, organinių rūgščių ir mineralinių medžiagų. Jose labai daug vitamino C, kuris gerai išsilaiko perdirbtų uogų produktuose, nes nėra jį skaldančių fermentų. Šaltalankio uogų nepatartina vartoti sergant cholecistitu, esant padidėjusiam skrandžio sulčių rūgštingumui, viduriuojant, sergant kepenų ir kasos ligomis.

Kur tinka alavijas Alavijas didina organizmo atsparumą infekcijoms, tonizuoja, gydo uždegimus ir žaizdas, laisvina vidurius, varo tulžį, skatina žaizdų gijimą, gerina plaukų augimą, naudojamas kosmetikoje. Siūlome keletą būdų, kaip ir kada vartoti alaviją. • Sergant sloga reikėtų 2 kartus per dieną į kiekvieną nosies šnervę lašinti po 5–6 lašus alavijo sulčių. • Virškinimui pagerinti gerkite po 8–9 lašus šviežių alavijo sulčių 2–3 kartus per dieną. • Kamuojant vidurių užkietėjimui gerkite po 1–2 šaukštelius alavijo sulčių 2–3 kartus per dieną 30 min. prieš valgį.

NAUDINGI PATARIMAI

Kaip ir kada galima vartoti šaltalankius • Sergant avitaminoze galima gerti šaltalankio sultis, atskiestas vandeniu (santykiu 1:3). • Užkietėjus viduriams, paimkite valgomąjį šaukštą šaltalankio sėklų, užpilkite 400 ml vandens, pavirinkite ant silpnos ugnies 15–20 min. Gerkite 3 kartus per dieną 10 min. prieš valgį. • Nusilpusiems ligoniams sustiprėti padės 2–3 kartus per dieną geriamas arbatinis šaukštelis šaltalankio aliejaus. Vartoti 15–20 min. prieš valgį.

In his book of essays, a well-known man of culture and politics and a former cultural attaché in the Kaliningrad Region tells the story of Königsberg, its past and present. Königsberg – once a city in which the Prussian culture intertwined with those of Germany and Lithuania, became a Russian cultural periphery after the Second World War. This is an impressive story of a place which is gone and yet is still alive, and of a coexistence of different personalities and cultures. The book introduces the most famous personalities of Königsberg: the German philosopher I. Kant, a famous Romantic author E.T. Hoffman, and L. Reza. It also reveals the cultural and political life of the current Kaliningrad region so little familiar to Lithuanians. This is the fourth revised edition in Lithuania. The book has won the literary prize of Lithuanian writer Ieva Simonaitytė. Arvydas Juozaitis (b.1956) – an author of 20 books, playwright and philosopher. In the past – a famous athlete and Olympic bronze medalist. His book “Riga – Nobody’s Civilization” is to be published in Latvian soon.

For this novel Sigitas Parulskis received the Person of Tolerance 2012 Award from the Sugihara Diplomats for Life Foundation. The novel “Darkness and Partners” deals with the topic of the Holocaust in Lithuania. Mass killings of Jews begin in Lithuania during World War 2. Lithuanians soon join the Nazis who organize the Holocaust. The book reveals the drama of a man who became a witness of mass murders of the Jews, the murderers’ drinking companion, their mate who is unable to change the flow of events. S. Parulskis tries to look at the Holocaust through the eyes of the perpetrators. Vincentas narrowly avoids being shot. After that, he concludes a contract – he will take pictures of the massacres to please certain “esthetic” tastes of an SS officer. Although Vincentas, who joins the extermination squad, does not become a murderer himself, he captures everything through the camera lens, and gradually sinks into the darkness. Cocaine and alcohol tone down the feeling of guilt, but you can’t hide from you inner hell. This novel is also a love story. This love is passionate, with numerous erotic descriptions, but it is also permeated with guilt. Vincentas loves Judita, who is Jewish. In the beginning their relationship was marred by the fact that Judita was married to Aleksandras, hence their love was unlawful and had to be kept a secret. Later the conflict gets deepened because Vincentas joins the squad of executioners, yet he swears his love to a representative of the persecuted nation. He pretends that everything can be combined, but redemption is hardly possible. The novel is full of symbols and allusions, of which the biblical parallels are the most striking. The characters are given biblical names. Vincentas tries to find identity with the Christ, and here we can also find the ideology of martyrdom and motives of redemption.
