Welcome Back!

Happy New Year!  I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday with their loved ones.

Reunited and it feels so good!!!!


Mother Nature delayed our return a bit but we are all happy to be back together again!!  We spent a good portion of this week reviewing the rules of classroom as well as lessons we learned in the first half of the year.

In observance of the Epiphany (Jan. 6), our middle school friends dressed as the Magi, visited our classroom and blessed us with holy water. 

We welcomed a new friend to our classroom.  His name is Chase.  We are so excited for him to be part of N2.

Many of our friends returned from the break well on their way to being potty trained.  This has sparked major interest from EVERYONE!!  We are all sitting on the potty a few times a day.  Mrs. Clay was so excited to hear this good news that they did the "Potty Conga" during music.  Be sure to ask your child about this :-)
We could not get outside to play in the snow so we brought it inside!!!  (boy did I get some funny looks!)  We enjoyed digging and scooping the snow.  We discussed hot vs cold and what happens to snow as it gets warm.

This week in STEAM we talked about levers.  Mrs.Zwilling showed us how to move the lever on the iPad.  We then moved to our circle rug to launch snowballs (cotton).  We took turns placing the cotton on one side of the lever and then pushing the other side down to launch the snowball in the air.  So much fun that we didn't even realize we were learning!
-We are in need of empty paper towel tubes. Please send them to school if you have any.
-Monday, January 15th there will be NO SCHOOL in observance of Martin Luther King Day.
-If your child is actively potty training please send in many changes of clothes.
Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Devenney
