Re-June-venizing at the Beach

Big picture
This month we are taking a vacation to the beach in our TUMBLEBUS! From swimming in the ocean, to walking across the pier, and jumping in the pool. We're all having a blast! Our Vacation with Teddy just keeps going, but just because we are on vacation doesn't mean that the growing and learning stops. Teddy and friends are consistently gaining new skills in keeping our bodies balanced, and growing our minds and bodies. We continue to gaining strength through lifting up our surf boards, and even practicing our letters through song when stretching. Teddy is super excited about all of the books that he has picked out for reading this month. He says that reading itself has the power alone to take you on a vacation; especially when they are all about the beach! Alongside all the enjoyment of great weather and smiling faces in the sun, we are enjoying all of the fun activities that our beach trip holds. It only gets better from here!

WE'RE GROWING! .....

Welcome our New Manager and Fitness Teacher Mrs. Eden Mabry!

Eden Mabry graduated in 2017 from Limestone College with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and spent all four years competing on the Cross country and Track team as a long distance runner. She has been running for over ten years now, and although she's running the TUMBLEBUS now, she is still actually running in her free time. She fell in love with children through her experiences of going to Belize during the summers on mission trips with Limestone Colleges CELP Program which lead to her job of being a 3 year old preschool teacher after she graduated. Eden is full of energy and has a passion for helping grow the hearts, minds, and bodies of children.

How to Win Cooperation?


Develop Predictable Routines


Kids cooperate in school because they know what's expected of them, says Beth Cohen-Dorfman, educational coordinator at Chicago's Concordia Avondale Campus preschool. "The children follow essentially the same routine day after day, so they quickly learn what they are supposed to be doing, and after a while barely need reminding." While it would be impractical to have the same level of structure at home, the more consistent you are, the more cooperative your child is likely to be, suggests Cohen-Dorfman. Decide on a few routines and stick to them! Examples include deciding when everyone gets dressed or reading before bed once all "jammies" are on ect. Eventually, following these "house rules" will become second nature to your child. This will ultimatley make their life/ behavior and your life a lot easier (Lamb, 2018).
