L.E.A.P. (Literacy, Eating, and Activity for Primary) LEAP

Photo: Kelli Bonifer shares the story "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" as an introduction to her lesson with Mrs. Jodie's preschool class.

Preschool and Kindergarteners at ACPC recently had special lessons pertaining to the L.E.A.P. program. L.E.A.P. incorporates reading and literacy with eating and physical activity for a healthy lifestyle.

The University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Program launched this program with preschool back in 2004 and has expanded it up to 3rd grade. The program is designed to help children learn healthy behaviors at a very young age.  Research studies indicate that children as young as two are eating a high-fat, low-fiber diet and that less than 20% of school children eat the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables.  LEAP is targeted to improving these statistics. Info provided by the U.K.Cooperative Extension. For more information go to the U.K. website: https://hes.ca.uky.edu/news-story/youth-nutrition-and-physical-activity-program-expands

Celebrating Grandparents/Grand Persons With Bingo for Books and Walk to Read BINGO-Murphy Family

On September 20, students at ACPC were encouraged to bring their grandparents or grand person to our Bingo for Books and Walk to Read event. There was quite a bit of activity going on between different rooms in our building. Students and their guest could go to the cafeteria to play bingo and win books. Then they were encouraged to walk laps in the gym to earn books as well. Students and their guest had a chance to win up to 5 books during the event. That is a great way to add to your home library. Be on the lookout for more family fun activity nights.

This event was sponsored by the Adair County Primary Center Title 1, 21st Century Camp Casey, the Family Resource Center and the W.A.T.C.H. Coalition.

The Family Place Resource Center Shares End of Year Reviews
Mrs. Hayes 1st Grade Class at ACPC

Mrs. Hayes’ 1st grade class at ACPC has been studying text features and the importance of them in nonfiction texts. The class attended “medical” school and learned all about the text features. The students then were given 8 different patient files that contained people who needed “surgery”.  The students would read the patient file and determine what text feature was needed to make them better. They then had to perform surgery using nonfiction texts. After all the operations were completed, the students had to complete a post-op reports discussing the text feature transplant that was given and the purpose of the text feature when reading nonfiction texts. This was a very exciting, hands-on, real world activity that the students really got involved in. The activity was followed by an assessment that confirmed their knowledge of each text feature.
