The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, March 27, 1990 9B Organ Cave Homemakers News "Brazil" was the study program given by Margaret Shanklin when the Organ Cave Extension Home- makers club met February 19 at the home of Mary Weikle with Alice White as co-hostess. Brazil, "Land of contrast," is the largest country in Latin America. Brazil is larger than the contiguous United States. Portu- guese is the predominant language. Religion plays an important part in Brazilians' history and culture. Sev- enty-five per cent of Brazilians can read and write. Education is both public and private. Brazil has rainy seasons and dry seasons -- this is why it is called a land of contrast. The world's largest flower grows there and is 6 feet 9 inches tall. Devotions were read by Mary Weikle. A poem, "Toast to the New Year" was read by Lee Sively.

WVU Extension Agent, Home Economics, Greenbrier CotJnty Parents often wonder what they can do at home to help their children become more successful learners. Reading, educators believe, is one area where parents could make real contributions to children's education. Children can be helped to de- velop an interest in books by par- ents who try the following: demon- strate your own positive attitude about reading. Occasionally read a book or magazine in front of your children and share with them what you learned or enjoyed from what you read. Read aloud to your chil- dren each day for at least twenty minutes, longer if possible. Be sure to hold the book so that children can see the pages while you read. When children are learning to read, let them read aloud to you. The two of you may wish to take turns, making sure that the reading material that they read is the right length, print size and proper reading level. You may want to consult a teacher or li- brarian for help. When selecting gifts for children, include a book from time to time. You'll find a number of excellent in- expensive books on the market to- day and remember that children, especially very young ones, like lots of pictures and illustrations --- so se- lect ones that are very colorful. Young children best enjoy books with lots of extremely large "busy" graphics. Never, under any circumstances, use reading as a punishment. Be cautious of telling a child that be- cause he is being punished, he may not go outside to play, but instead must go to his room to read or play alone. In doing this, reading and playing alone both become undesir- ables because they are associated with punishment. Constantly check to see that the lighting is adequate in reading areas of your home. When a child pro- nounces a word wrong, be sure to correct him and help him to look at the word and see why it is spoken differently. If you suspect that your child has a reading problem, consult his teacher. If the teacher suggests that your child needs remedial reading assistance, by all means give your approval and ask how you can help at home and encourage your child to participate. Every child should have books of his own, but it is also important for a child to use the public library. Take your children to the library often, in- troduce them to the librarian as a friend who can help then find books they will want and enjoy. Allow them to check out books they like and take them home on loan. Help your children locate a spe- cial place to keep their books or those books belonging to the entire family. It may be only one shelf, but they need to know where they can find reading materials. We have all long realized that reading opens worlds unknown to all minds -- so please reinforce the desire to read within your family -- you will all be richer for the experi- ence! TODAY'S CHUCKLE: Monday -- a tough way to spend one sev- enth of your life! Retired Federal.J Employees Meet By Wilme J.

At the March meeting of Con- cerned Nurses of West Virginia (CNWV), the program was "To Live Until You Die," a video by Elizabeth KL~bler-Ross, M.D., renowned au- thority on death and dying. Through interviews with both children and adults, the viewer listens with D, KObler-Ross as the person relates his feelings after being diagnosed as terminally ill.

The Registered Nurses, there should be preference is often to be allowed to similar value placed on those who live out the final period at home with contir~ue as LPNs in order to work loved ones. The physician talks about the "unfinished business" which must be taken care of by ev- eryone in order to live with a pur- pose, so that one can accept both aging and death as natural stages of the life process.
