Center Time with Our Preschoolers
This week, our NLS Preschoolers are talking about bears! Additionally, Mrs. Walker explained that the preschoolers are learning to work in small groups with a 15 minute rotation. This is called “Center Time.” Through Center Time, the students learn to stay with a task until it is completed, work and play with a variety of peers, and follow a teacher directed schedule. Currently, preschoolers are working in three small groups with an adult to reinforce cooperative play and basic concepts. Mrs. Walker continued, “Students enjoy working with sand, using iPads to reinforce letters, numbers, and following directions, as well as working in small groups to practice sorting by color.”
Northwood BPA Competes in Regional Competition
Our Ranger business students recently competed in the Business Professionals of America Region 6 Competitions on Tuesday, January 23rd at Bowling Green State University. Business Professionals of America (BPA) assesses the real-world business skills and problem-solving abilities of business students in the areas of finance, business administration, management, and information technology. Mrs. Myers further explained, “The program’s goal is to provide all business students with the opportunity to demonstrate and apply these skills through business courses. Through BPA, members learn how to go from student to professional in knowledge, skill, and ability.”
5 Fun BPA Facts:
- Region 6 is the largest competitive region in Ohio!
- BPA ranks the top ten places in all competitions and recognizes the top six during the award ceremony; 980 students (mostly juniors and seniors) competed this year.
- Each year our Rangers continue to thrive and improve; although our Rangers were not able to advance to the state competition, our Rangers significantly improved!
- This year, 14 Ranger business students placed in the top ten!
- Logan Bouk, Christina Zielinski, and Usa Vayavong were the youngest team of competitors at this year’s competition. The team competed in Presentation Management, which had the most contestants, and placed 4th in the competition! They were the youngest among the competitors and they were competing in the biggest competition of the day!
