What a fun month in the library! We were paleontologist and explored dinosaur bones! Then we moved on to help Michael Recycle to teach others about recycling. Don’t forget Earth is April 22nd!

In the ESL classes at BSLK, we cover many themes and topics. One of the most popular is the food unit. Students learn the English names for the most common foods and get to discuss them and which ones are their favorites. Students also learn plate, napkin, utensils, etc. so that they can "set a table". Daily we talk about the school menu and what they eat for breakfast and lunch at school as well as what they eat for dinner at home. The culmination of the unit is when they go "grocery shopping". Students work in small groups of 2 or 3 and are given a list of what they need to "purchase". They must find the items, put them in the "buggy" and bring them to the "check out" where they must tell the "cashier" (aka teacher) what it is that they have. The picture shows groups getting their list and getting ready to begin shopping.

KidCheck Plus Health Fair 2014
BSLK students once again had the opportunity to participate in the annual KidCheck Plus program. KidCheck coordinators along with nursing students and instructors from Snead State and Jacksonville State provided several screening stations. Students were measured for height and weight and had blood pressure checks. Our students had ear, nose and throat exams and also had a brief dental exam provided by staff from Sarrell Dental Center.
Over 430 of our students had the opportunity to participate in this great screening program. BSLK students always have a great time and the nursing students are provided with a fantastic learning opportunity.
