Celebrating Dr. Seuss

The theme for Toddler Story Time last week was “Celebrating Dr. Seuss.”

Shannon began story time with a “Good Morning to my Friends” song  and followed with Toddlerobics exercises.Next she did a finger play with “Rollie Pollie” and then read “The Cat in the Hat.”

Shannon asked the children which songs they would like to hear, and the children chose two songs where they could shake their sillies out followed by the Monkey song. Shannon did another finger play with (Open and Shut Them) using finger and arm movements, and then read a counting rhyme about five cats, using her fingers.

Next Shannon read another Dr. Seuss story entitled “Put Me in the Zoo” then she gave each child a color dot to put on the felt board animal when she called out that specific color.

The children finished off, with a craft, by making a picture of the cat in the hat out of construction paper.

St. Mark's shows their support

St. Mark’s Lutheran Church is giving back to those in need. The Quilting Group of St. Mark’s has been quilting for the past year in preparation for Lutheran World Relief’s quilting mission.

Fifteen ladies from St. Mark’s have worked diligently over the past year and have already made 258 quilts.

These ladies at St. Mark’s put in a lot of work, meeting weekly at the church but make it clear that it “takes a whole community to make this happen.”

They have to find affordable fabrics and receive donations. It is a team effort, as they emphasize.

Each quilt takes on average three to fours to make: from top assembly or sandwiching to binding then tying and clipping; it is a lengthy process.

Gobbler Grace

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Cuero ISD has teachers who care about their students. One of them, second grade teacher Hannah Carson, has put this into practice outside of the classroom and has already seen an overwhelming response from students with a study called Gobbler Grace.

Carson started working at Hunt Elementary in January 2015 after graduating from Southeastern University in Florida in December 2014.

“I was taught faith integration and how to reach out to kids in a different way,” Carson stated.

She wanted to do more for her kids than just teach them at school.

Carson said, “I need to do more. The word grace kept coming back to me.”
