March  2015

Dear Friends,

TLC is welcoming spring and celebrating March Madness at Lucky's, as well as preparing for our Kentucky Derby Party in May!

Visit us at Lucky's on Saturday from 11 AM - 3 PM to make healthy snack-pizzas with your kids. Ticket sales for the Kentucky Derby Party will begin on April 1st online, in person at TLC, or by phone. The TLC preschoolers will begin planting their spring garden seedlings soon with the help of Second Start Community Gardens. The City of Longmont plans to declare April as Child and Community Safety Month. The city has partnered with Lassy Project, a free app that allows parents and guardians to alert their neighbors and surrounding community should a child or loved one go missing.  There is a huge focus on community safety, and the City and Lassy Project are working to get as many residents signed up to use this free app as possible. The app is available in over 2,000 zip codes across the county, and Longmont is one of the first cities to partner with the Lassy Project to declare a Child and Community Safety Month here in Colorado. A Community Safety Fair will be hosted in conjunction with the Children’s Health Fair on April 25th, so stay tuned for more details. Until then, we 
encourage you to visit and create an account. 

As always, we are so pleased to have you as a TLC friend and supporter. We hope you have a wonderful March!

Very Sincerely,

The TLC Staff & Board

The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch, recommended by TLC Occupational Therapist Kathy Keith.

The Princess Elizabeth is engaged to marry Prince Ronald when a dragon attacks the castle and kidnaps Ronald. Elizabeth finds the dragon, outsmarts him, and rescues Ronald. Ronald, though, is less than pleased by Elizabeth's un-princess-like appearance when she arrives, and Elizabeth has a thing or two to say about Ronald's preoccupation with appearances, making a great lesson for young children about the value of inner beauty and strength.

Miss Tavita and Miss Amy had a terrific and fun past few weeks. Their classes started the Zoo-phonics program for early literacy, and have worked on the letters 'A,' 'B,' 'C,' and 'D.' Children have practiced reading and saying the sounds for Allie Alligator, Bubba Bear, Catina Cat and Deedee Deer. 

They have read The Little Red Hen and done lots of baking. Students worked on turn-taking when making bread, tortillas, and gak! The children's other book has been Rosie's Walk, and they talked about placement words and body parts after reading it.

TLC Tip of the Month, from Teaching Aide Zoe Read: Maintaining consistency in your daily routines and responses to your child's behaviors helps your child learn to self-regulate their responses to transitions, change, and corrections. Communicating deviations from your routine in advance can help children prepare themselves for the new experience, making change easier for all.
