20 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer&apos;s ADVOCATE THURSDAY, JULY 20, 1978 Member FDIC Summer Enrichment Program Has Field Trip, July 4th Program At Day Care Center The Summer Enrichment Program in progress" at the Shepherdstown Day Care Center has arrived at the half-way mark completing the fourth week of activities. The program has developed into an exciting experience for children and staff alike covering a wide range of special activities. The special activities were initiated with "Movie Day". The children popped and bagged popcorn and congregated in the bike room to munch popcorn and view films. Monday, July 19, dawned hot and dry without a leaf moving except at South Wood Springs Farm owned and operated by Forrest and Mildred Hammond, the destination of the center's field trip, Upon arrival, snack was served on the lawn ac- companied by a welcome breeze. The children were divided into two groups. One group led by Mrs. Hammond, advanced to the pond which aceomodated a paddle beat just waiting to be navigated. Fish and tadpoles swam about in l abundance as the children glided around the pond in the craft. The other group joined Mr. Ham- mond to meet the farm animals. The burros, Molly and Jack, were introduced to the youngsters along with a senior citizen horse. The Hammond's goat bleated loudly but allowed the children to pet it. Susie, the big black cow, was on hand mooing nicely and would have licked anyone who was willing with her gigantic pink tongue. The nameless lamb cooperated and made appropriate sounds letting everyone touch her wooly coat. To everyone's delight, the children were invited to climb on i the hay wagon and ride around the hayfield. Back from the ride, the groups were switched so all the sights and sounds could be enjoyed by each group. The children were permitted to climb up on the big tractor and let their imaginations run their course. It was a field trip en- joyed and appreciated by all and to make a good thing better, quantities of tadpoles were sent back to the center with the children. Two of the center's children, Shannon Harrisand Becky Gibbons were ! reparing to move to Brazil. Shepherdstown resident, Clara Bjorlie, a native Brazilian, graciously consented to visit the center and show slides and articles of interest from her native land. The center children had an opportunity to see what the girl's new home would be like. The monthly library visits for each room were enjoyed as usual by the children. Mrs. Linda Miller, children's librarian, directed the activity. A group of the older children ' returned at a later date to check our independent reading material. The weekly music sessions were centered around an American theme with recognition and etiquette con- cerning the national chairman, The Star Spangled Banner, and American songs and singing games, Preparation for the centers 4th of July celebration preceded a big parade, The children made hats, a banner, No. 1 ribbons, rockets and shakers to use in the celebration. Monday, July 3rd arrived, along with the rain, making it necessary to reschedule the activity for Wednesday, July 5th. The rescheduled day was perfect. A few spectators were present to viewthe excited, enthusiastic Shepherdstown Day Care Center m'm"--mm mmm mmmmmmn Band." The drum cadence sounded and the band progressed over the parade route, marching around the circle and up to the playground. The shelter was decorated with red, white, and blue streamers. Center parent and board member, John Adams, was on hand to present each child with a No. 1 ribbon for participating in the event. "I Am An American" was sung by the band followed by a watermelon feast. America's birthday was honored and enjoyed. The Rainbow Room treated the center enrollment and staff to a peanu[ butter hall snack which they had prepare. The next morning the Sunshine Room hiked into Shepherdstown to purchase the ingredients for their cooking project. Friday morning, July 7th, the center children gathered in the bike room to become acquainted with Camille Saint-Sens and meet some of the animals they would hear in his musical classic, "The Carnival of the Animals." The young listeners' hands were used as the various animals' feet and ears to discover the tempo of the selections. Animal songs were learned and again young children delighted in the amusing music. The Shepherdstown Day Care Center is a recipient of the United Givers Fund. im ......... - ...... ..... 7" .......... KABLETOWN Mrs, Marianna Smallwood Dial 725-5707 : Hugh N.
