Congratulations to the Alex and Nicole Neswold and Ryan and Shelby Backes families. They were put into a drawing for $25.00 in free child care for selling all their Pancake Breakfast Tickets and working their scheduled shift, and won!
Thanks to all the families of BTCC that donated to make this fundraiser a success!
The Ducklings have been busy:
Testing the teacher’s patience 😊
Building with Mega Blocks
Bouncing in Bouncy seats
Rolling and Crawling
Having tummy time
Running and giggling!
The Bears loved playing with the tool bench and musical instruments in the gym! For art the Bears dobber painted umbrellas and the letter U. Other activities included going to the library and listened to a story with a puppet! The Bears also played with toys in the library, used tag bags, which practice fine motor skills by buttoning and velcroing, matched colors with rings, watched an ABC video for letter U, and pretended the floor was lava!
This week the Tigers learned the letter U. MacKenzie was on vacation this week and Jessica was the teacher. Along with doing their own jobs, the Tigers helped Jessica do hers, like setting the tables, getting the cots out for nap time, and switching the laundry. For art the Tigers made underground pictures and umbrella pictures. Other activities included thinking of words beginning with U, using the balance beam, tumbling mat, tool bench, musical instruments, and steppingstones in the gym, and playing at the library.
The Lions spent time in the gym and in the Tiger room after school. Some of the kids glued pictures to paper, while others built with magnets and played board games with the teachers.
The Ducklings have been listening to the birds tweeting and crows cawing this week, as the teachers have had the windows open, what beautiful weather the beginning of March brought us! The bigger Ducks keep their teachers on their toes, while the little Ducks give them lots of snuggles! The teachers in the Duckling room are Jessie Leonard, Lexi Piper, Chloe Thein and Michelle Becker. Thanks for your dedication, ladies!
The Bear Room teachers are Salena Quario, Melany Kelley and Marissa Swales. This week the Bears started using a new behavior chart. When they have good behavior, their name moves up and when they need to think about their choices their names move down. The Bears are catching onto this concept fast! For art the Bears tore orange paper to glue onto a Tiger. They also colored a Turtle and the Letter T for T week.
This week the Tigers talked about the Letter T. They listed words that begin with the letter T and watched a T video. For art the Tigers painted tree. They also painted a tooth with a toothbrush, colored a Tiger and glittered a variety of paper cut outs. Wednesday the Tigers went to the library and learned about Dr. Seuss. They made a Dr. Seuss hat, listened to a couple of his stories and took pictures as Thing 1 and Thing 2. The Tiger’s teachers have been MacKenzie Swales and Jessica Haynes.
Monday was a scheduled no school day at Starmont, the Lions watched the movie Encanto with Patty from the library. It is wonderful being in the same building as the library! The rest of the week, after school the Lions played games with their teachers, like Life on the Farm and memory. The Lions also have puzzle races, draw pictures, and build structures with blocks and magnets to park matchbox cars inside. The Lions teachers are primarily Heather Haynes and Savana Mesplay.
