We are in a new room (which includes a bathroom ... Whooo! Whooo!) and are busy playing with friends and trying many skills This is the time for us to do a complete assessment of skills that kids have when they begin school. The staff is working with each child to see what they can do and to what level they are show- ing their skills. Soon the class will be working on those items that are most needed by having lots of fun things in the play center, work sta- tions and general classroom that encourage practice. Students are getting very good at the routine of coming to school. This often takes a couple of weeks to do, but now we have kids reminding other kids to "get your folder," "Don't forget your quarter," and "find your name!" Soon we will be adding the routine of going to the library and checking out a book for a couple of weeks. This is a whole new thing to remember for morns and dads! I suggest keeping the school library book in a special place (on top of the refrigerator is my favorite one) and only use it together or when supervised. This teaches respect for other's things as well as making this particular item special. It's a bonus that you can rush in and grab it when you realize it is library dayI I hope your family is enjoy- ing hearing all about your child's school experience. Following is a note from Cort- ney Voigt-Ely from the preschool room: Hi, From Ms. Cortney! Play and Learn School is offto a great start! We began our year by learning the rules and routines of our class- room. Then we moved on to bus- ses, and how we can stay safe while riding on a bus. We have been busy the past two weeks learning about apples. We had apple slices for snack, talked about the differ- ent parts of an apple, made apple stamps for painting, and read Ten Apples up on Top by Theo LeSieg. We have been working on our fine motor skillsby learning two new finger plays about apples and working on snipping paper with scissors. Coming up in October, we will be learning about fire safety. We will be reading stories that show us what to do in case there is a fire, practice "stop, drop, and roll" and how to crawl close to the ground where there is more oxygen. We will also introduce our first let- ter-Ff; and will be talking about pumpkins and fall activities. We look forward to a successful year with lots of learning! Cortney Voigt-Ely Early Childhood Educator Maicy Vossen won a purple rib- bon at the Minnesota State Fair for photography in the grades 6-8 class. Meeker County 4-H Awards Celebration "And the Award goes to...!" The annual Meeker County 4-H Awards Celebration was held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 9, at the First Lutheran Church in Litch- field. The Awards Celebration began with Federation Officers and Council Members honoring Meeker County 4-H'ers for their accomplishments during the past year. We installed our new Feder- ation Officers, recognized our vol- unteers, donors, champions, and other award winners. Following the program, 4-H'ers Anna John- son, Nicole Knickerbocker, and Jordyn Stenmark served ice cream sundaes. Thank you to all volun- teers and 4-H'ers who came early to help set up and stayed after- wards to clean up. I was once again overwhelmed at your helpfulness. Also, thank you to all donors. Our program would not be as success- ful without you. 4'H Awards/To page 14 E-mail your story ideas to ed ito r@t rico u n tyne w s.M N I "" Page 7 Kimball Kruisers 4-H Club was recognized as a purple ribbon club for Meeker County.
