Hidup Hanya Sesingkat Sakura

Tulisan yang inspiratif dari seorang teman,

Sakura, hidup singkat, dan bermakna, lalu mati. Seandainya kita bisa memaknai bunga-bunga angrek seperti halnya Sakura bagi orang Jepang, tentu hidup akan jauh lebih berarti dan berguna

di dalam hidup sakura yang singkat itu, dia membawa keindahan, wangi dan semerak hidup bagi yang menikmatinya. Hidup yang singkat tetapi memberi kebahagiaan dan makna bagi banyak orang. Hidup yang begitu singkat tetapi berarti. Hal ini mengilhami orang Jepang untuk membuat yang terbaik didalam hidup mereka, sekali hidup tetapi berguna, sebelum mati kelak dan hilang bersama waktu. Itulah sebabnya dahulu orang Jepang memilih mati dengan bunuh diri (harakiri atau seppuku) daripada hidup tidak berguna atau gagal. Mati seperti ini lebih dihormati daripada hidup dengan tidak bermanfaat.

Sekarang ini sudah jarang orang Jepang melakukan harakiri, tetapi mereka yang gagal, atau membuat malu, atau korupsi, dll akan memilih mengundurkan diri dan tidak menampakkan wajahnya ke umum. Sifat ini membuat mereka bekerja keras sepanjang hidup, berkarya dan membuat hidup lebih baik. Tak heran jika mereka menghasilkan karya karya yang berkualitas seperti teknologi yang banyak kita nikmati. Selain itu mereka berusaha menjagai keindahan alam dan memelihara kehidupan.

 

dan akhir cerita ini saya ingin sekali menikmati keindahan negeri sakura bersama :

Reading comprehension

Standard

What is reading comprehension?

Reading comprehension skills separates the “passive” unskilled reader from the “active” readers. Skilled readers don’t just read, they interact with the text. To help a beginning reader understand this concept, you might make them privy to the dialogue readers have with themselves while reading.

Skilled readers, for instance:

Predict what will happen next in a story using clues presented in text
Create questions about the main idea, message, or plot of the text
Monitor understanding of the sequence, context, or characters
Clarify parts of the text which have confused them
Connect the events in the text to prior knowledge or experience

Time4Learning’s Strategy for Teaching Reading Comprehension Skills

With Time4Learning, these comprehension skills are taught and reinforced in a number of ways. A few examples:

When approaching a text, skilled readers are already reading the title and building ideas about what the text will say. There are Time4Learning online reading lessons that explain this and help students develop this habit. Time4Learning teaches students the important habit of evoking their prior knowledge and information on a subject when they read to enhance comprehension.

Once a student has started reading a text, the reader should confirm, modify, or refine their idea about the main idea. They should identify the main idea. Time4Learning teaches and provides significant practice in distinguishing the main idea in a paragraph or essay from supporting detail or other components.

The meaning of certain vocabulary terms and expressions in context can aid or impede reading comprehension. Time4Learning teaches students to note confusing terms, make assumptions about their meaning, and monitor whether their assumptions lead to better understanding or confusion. A variety of strategies are taught on line for dealing with vocabulary while reading.

Time4Learning teaches the vital skill for readers of monitoring their understanding as they proceed through the text. All readers occasionally fail to grasp the meaning of certain passages. Skilled readers quickly note their need to review what they’ve read and return to problematic passages to gain understanding.

There are online reading comprehension exercises that help students understand the strategy used by skilled readers to approach, read, and interpret text. The software introduces a theme by having an interactive and animated exercise teach the vocabulary and subject matter. Then the comprehension software will present a story. For the younger children, it is read to them as they follow the text. As they advance, their reading is supported by having each word, when clicked, read to them. By third grade, only key vocabulary words will have hotlinks for support

The Heart Of Worship

Standard

When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that’s of worth
That will bless Your heart
I’ll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You,
It’s all about You, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You,
It’s all about You, Jesus

King of endless worth
No one could express
How much You deserve
Though I’m weak and poor
All I have is Yours
Every single breath
I’ll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You,
It’s all about You, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
And it’s all about You,
It’s all about You, Jesus

I’m coming back to the heart of worship,
And it’s all about You,
It’s all about You, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You,
It’s all about You, Jesus
