North Carolina

North Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, Virginia to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. North Carolina is the 28th most extensive and the 9th most populous of the 50 United States. North Carolina is known as the Tar Heel State and the Old North State.

 

The state is composed of 100 counties. Its two largest metropolitan areas are among the top ten fastest-growing in the country: its capital, Raleigh, and its largest city, Charlotte. In the past five decades, North Carolina's economy has undergone a transition from reliance upon tobacco, textiles, and furniture-making to a more diversified economy with engineering, energy, biotechnology, and finance sectors.

 

The state has a wide range of elevations, from sea level on the coast to 6,684 feet (2,037 m) at Mount Mitchell, the highest point in North America east of the Mississippi River.[9] The climate of the coastal plains is strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Most of the state falls in the humid subtropical climate zone. More than 300 miles (500 km) from the coast to the western, mountainous part of the state has a subtropical highland climate.

Chapel Hill is a city in Orange County, North Carolina (with some eastern portions in Durham County), and the home of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and UNC Health Care. The population was 57,233 at the 2010 census; Chapel Hill is the 16th-largest municipality in North Carolina.

 

Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh make up the three corners of the Research Triangle, so named in 1959 with the creation of Research Triangle Park, a research park between Durham and Raleigh. Chapel Hill is one of the central cities of the Durham-Chapel Hill MSA, which in turn is part of the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill Combined Statistical Area, with a population of 1,998,808.

 

The area was the home place of early settler William Barbee of Middlesex County, Virginia, whose 1753 grant of 585 acres from the Earl of Granville was the first of two land grants in what is now the Chapel Hill-Durham area. Though William Barbee died shortly after establishing himself and his family in North Carolina, one of his eight children, Christopher Barbee, became an important contributor to his father's adopted community and to the fledgling University of North Carolina.

 

Chapel Hill sits atop a hill which was originally occupied by a small Anglican "chapel of ease", built in 1752, known as New Hope Chapel. The Carolina Inn now occupies the site of the original chapel. In 1819, the town was founded to serve the University of North Carolina and grew up around it. The town was chartered in 1851, and its main street, Franklin Street, was named in memory of Benjamin Franklin.

Developmental Milestones

Age Children (7-9 years old)

• Have more same-sex friends

• Increased ability to engage in competition

• Developing and testing values and beliefs that will guide present

and future behaviors

• Has a strong group identity; increasingly defines self through

peers

• Need to develop a sense of mastery and accomplishment based

upon physical strength, self-control and school performance

Physical

 

• Have increased coordination and strength

• Enjoy using new skills, both gross and fine motor

• Are increasing in height and weight at steady rates

Intellectual/Cognitive

 

• By early elementary age, children start logical thinking, which

means that rather than accepting what they see as true, they

begin to apply their personal knowledge and experience to a

particular situation to determine whether it makes sense or not.

 

• Temporal concepts greatly improve in this age range, as early

elementary children start to understand the idea of the passage

of time, as well as day, date and time as concepts as opposed

to as numbers.

 

• Most early elementary school aged children have acquired the

basic cognitive and linguistic concepts necessary to sufficiently

communicate an abusive event.

 

• They can also copy adult speech patterns. As a result, it is easy

to forget that children in this age range are still not fully

developed cognitively, emotionally, or linguistically.

Lotería is the Spanish word for lottery. The deck is composed of a set of 54 different images, each one in a card. To start the game, the caller (cantor, or singer) randomly selects a card from the deck and announces it to the players by its name, sometimes using a riddle orhumorous patter instead of reading the card name. The players with a matching pictogram on their board mark it off with a chip or other kind of marker (many Mexican people traditionally use small rocks, crown corks or pinto beans as markers). The first player with four chips in a horizontalvertical or diagonal row, squared pattern,any other previously specified pattern, or fills the tabla first shouts "¡Lotería!" (Lottery!) or "¡Buenas!" (Good!) and is the winner.

What is a God’s Eye?

The Ojo de Dios (Eye of God in Spanish) is woven with yarn and wood, often using several colours. The weaving of an Ojo de Dios is an ancient contemplative and spiritual practice for many.  They are often created for celebration or blessing, presented as a gift or designed to bless a home. .
