SUPERIOR, Ariz. -The first few months of school have flown by and the children are adapting to the school readiness environment of Superior Head Start, becoming comfortable with the class routine, agreements, the teaching staff and each other.
“The teaching staff has seen so much growth in them. The excitement mounts as Open House, Fatherhood and Smokey the Bear and Silly Dress Up day approaches,”, says Teresita Martinez Olmos Teacher-PIC at Superior Head Start.
Recent focus has been on discussing these activities, book reading and the completion of various activities, including discussions amongst and with the children of their feelings andhelping them to learn that it is okay to be different.
“We have also talked about how our families and homes differ around the community and around the world.” says Ms. Martinez Olmos. She continues “We also have discussed fall and the changes that are taking place. Although each day is different, the children have a routine because children like the idea of knowing what comes next.”
