Week of January 15th - 19th

We are getting back into the swing of our school routine.  Each day begins with Montessori lessons; we are now up to an hour (sometimes a little longer) work period.  We work very hard on our lessons and are always proud of the final product!

Nursery 2 is lucky enough to partake in "specials" each day.  On Tuesdays we have Music and on Thursdays we have STEAM and Music.  This week in music we worked on  songs for upcoming events like Parent Visitation Day.  (If you happen to be here during music:-)  At  the end of music Mrs. Clay rewarded our hard work with a scarf dance Waltz. 

Some of us choose to dance alone and others grabbed a partner!

In STEAM we continued the discussion about simple machines.  This week we talked about a slide.  The children took turns pushing a block up the slide and pushing a car down the slide.  This also reinforced opposite vocabulary- up and down.

For those of us that have transitioned to underwear, keep up the good work!!!  I know potty training can be frustrating as a parent but keep in mind elimination is one of the few things toddlers can control in their environment.  Stay positive, even when accidents happen, and they WILL happen!!  Allow your child to be part of the clean up process when accidents do happen.  Keep rewards to a minimum but do verbally praise this milestone! 

-Parent Visitation Day will be help on Tuesday, January 23rd from 8:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.  All parents are invited to visit all of the classrooms.  This is an opportunity to see N2 in action as well as visit future classrooms.

-Student Council is collecting clean, gently used men's, women's and children's coats.  The coat drive will end January 31, 2018. 

-Please send in your (empty) paper towel roll(s).  We are in need of them for a service project.

-Please send in baby wipes. 

Have a great weekend!  Lets hope for a big win on Sunday!!!
