FACULTY LOUNGE citron sings ms. teresa beilman's praises


Music teacher Ms. Teresa Beilman has been working with young children since 2006 and will complete her first year as Citron campus music teacher at the end of this school year.  She loves being able to combine her passion for teaching young people and her passion for creating, experiencing and leading music. "I wake up every morning knowing I have the joy of teaching children using music and movement," she says.  One of the highlights of her year was working on the spring musical.  In her free time, Teresa enjoys reading, crocheting, jewelry making, singing, and camping.  She is also an active community volunteer, donating her time at UCI Medical Center and at local prisons.

SNACK TIME top six things to have in your kitchen

In January we were thrilled to have Chef Tanya of Native Foods come visit us at Anaheim Hills for a Chalk Talk. While she was there, she shared her suggestions on the top six things to keep in your kitchen at all times, and we wanted to share them with you! Read more and see pictures from the event on the Native Foods blog

Top Six Things to Have in Your Kitchen: 

1. Oatmeal
Quick for a snack, a great breakfast with some berries and walnuts for you and the kids.
2. Legumes
These are lentils, garbanzos, black and red beans. Keeps your engine on. You can use to make ethnically diverse dishes. Think Mexican black beans, East Indian Lentils, Middle Eastern garbanzos, etc.
3. Dark Leafy Greens
Steam them, saute them, chop them in salads, add them to your cooked beans for a hearty soup.
4. Fresh Berries
An easy to eat fruit, kids can snack on them and they go good in the oatmeal.
5. Avocados
The California wonderfood. Slice them, spread them, guac them.
6. Olive Oil
Ready to make a fresh easy salad dressing or saute some onions and garlic for a flavor base for your grains, legumes, veggies and soups.

ARTS & CRAFTS celebrating mama

From picking us up at school to getting stains out of our jeans to baking hundreds of cookies for our class parties, Mom is always there when you need her. Mother's Day is a wonderful opportunity to show her how much you care, and a handmade gift always means the most. Make mom's day with some of these creative craft ideas from Martha Stuart's Holidays

Surprise mom with breakfast in bed (maybe pancakes complete with a whipped cream and chocolate chip smiley face??) and decorate the tray with these long-lasting tissue paper posies

Sometimes the things our mamas do are front-page worthy. Make your mom this Sunday's headline by printing this newspaper template and filling in a picture and story! 

We hope your Mother's Day is special! Feel free to comment with your own craft ideas for mom.

BOOK REPORT celebrating national poetry month


In honor of National Poetry Month, our Fairmont campuses are sharing poetry anthologies to pique your child’s interest in the rhymes and rhythms of poetic verse.  And, we’d like to go a step further and motivate our students to write their own original poems.  To get their creative juices flowing, may we suggest:

Pizza, Pigs, and Poetry: How to Write a Poem
by Jack Prelutsky

Perfect for children in third-sixth grade, the former Children’s Poet Laureate uses comical anecdotes from his life and more than a dozen examples of his own poetry to inspire children to put pen to paper.  Prelutsky shows how kids can use their real life experiences—wacky things like playing with their food at the dinner table—as fodder for poetic writing.  In addition to tips and plenty of hair brained inspiration, he concludes the book with fun “poemstarts” to motivate even the most reticent to get writing.

We'd love to hear from our talented Fairmont poets.  Comment on this blog posting with your child's original poem!

BOOK REPORT citron makes poetry appealing to the younger set

Read-Aloud Rhymes for the Very Young
by Jack Prelutsky

Poems about picnics, pretending, and puppies make this book the book to introduce little ones to poetry about the world around them. Jack Prelutsky, one of today's most respected children's poets, has selected more than 200 short poems--old favorites, traditional rhymes, and humorous verses--that will delight young listeners. The poems cover a wide range of experiences in a young child's life, from everyday events to special days to the world of the imagination.

Marc Brown, author and illustrator of the popular Arthur series, uses colored-pencil illustrations and borders to unify the poems, helping to create a pleasing, lively collection to carry children from their preschool years into the early elementary grades. As Jim Trelease tells us in his introduction to the book, "Unlike the toys we buy our children, poems cannot break."--amazon.com review

Citron P4 teacher Hope Lopez believes experience is the best teacher.  Whether it’s developing lesson plans for her P4 students, getting messy in her extracurricular class “Cooking and Other Concoctions” or keeping her summer campers engaged, she encourages fun, hands-on learning.  Hope has 10 years experience working with preschool-aged children and a Teaching Certificate in Early Child Development.  She is currently completing her Bachelors of Arts in Human Development.  Hope wears many hats at the Citron campus including Preschool Coordinator for the P4 group.  In addition to baking and cooking, she loves the outdoors and enjoys bike riding and hiking with her two teen-aged sons.  Hope says the best part of her job is having the opportunity, “to work with a wonderful group of ladies and interact with great kids.”

SNACK TIME celebrate soy


During April, National Soyfoods Month, try incorporating this healthy option into one of your family's meals.

Over a third of Americans enjoy a dinner that includes soyfoods, that is, food made from soybeans. Soyfoods include products made from tofu-and edamame. 

Tofu, or bean curd, is a soft cheese-like food made that is made by curdling soy milk with a coagulant*. The curds are pressed into rectangular or square blocks, similar to the way cheese is made with milk curds. Tofu is made in a variety of textures—soft, firm, and extra-firm—that have different purposes. Tofu has very little flavor on its own, so it can be used either in savory or sweet dishes, and it is often seasoned or marinated to suit the dish.

Edamame is young soybeans, usually still in the pod. Because the beans are young and green when they are picked, edamame soybeans are soft and edible, not hard and dry like the mature soybeans which are used to make soy milk and tofu.

Some grocery stores sell green edamame that has been hulled (beans have been removed) resulting in just the beans. This hulled edamame is great for making salads or adding to rice dishes but also as a flavorful, nutritious snack on its own!

Soyfoods, like tofu and edemame are easy to digest, low in fat and sodium, and a good source of B vitamins and calcium plus and isoflavones.  

Tofu is an exceptional food—not only because it is highly nutritious, but because it can be prepared in such a remarkably wide variety of ways. The uses for tofu are limited only by a chef’s imagination. 

Soyfoods are easy to prepare and simple to incorporate into your favorite dishes. Here are some ways to increase soy in your diet:

Breakfast: Try soymilk on hot or cold cereal with some berries
Lunch: Try deli alternatives like soy “hot dogs” that taste great and offer all the benefits of soy.
Dinner: Meat alternatives are easy, try making tacos with soy crumbles in place of ground beef
Snack: Soyfood snacks like whole soy nutrition bars, soy yogurt and soy pudding 

Any time snacks: trade the candy box for something healthier: soy nuts covered in milk chocolate or a vanilla yogurt-based coating. 
Or 
Soynuts:  offer a solid crunch, and are found flavored with seasonings of barbeque, teriyaki, onion, garlic or just plain.
Or 
Edamame  - steamed young soybeans served in-the-pod can be a fun treat, hot or cold.

Soyfoods are a nutritious option for children and busy families. Plus they taste great!
