Superior Head Start Happenings

Superior – The children of Superior Head Start participated in Fatherhood Activities on Feb. 13 as part of the national Fatherhood Initiative to actively involve fathers in the lives of their children.

Taking a walking field trip to the Superior United States Post Office, they toured the lobby and mailed letters, accompanied by Superior Head Start staff and parent volunteers.

As they toured, the children noticed the size and number of mail boxes, and listened to their teacher on the importance of learning how to count and learning the alphabet, learning how the mailboxes all have numbers and how, in order to open their mailboxes, the letters are used in combinations.

The children created their own mailboxes by using a variety of recycled tissue boxes and participated in a friendship card exchange consisting of handwritten valentines as part of their school readiness activities.

Returning to the school playground, the children participated in "Get Moving" outdoor activities, along with their family members and teaching staff. Activities included riding tricycles, using hula hoops, jumping rope, and playing games such as bean bag toss, horse shoes, hopscotch, and several attempts at a three-legged race.

Parent volunteers and students also had time for a healthful snack, which they created themselves from banana halves and graham crackers rolled in vanilla yogurt on skewers, called banana pops.
