The first Blog of the year!

Hello!  Welcome to the Nursery Blog. 
Here you will find pictures and weekly information about what is going on in our classroom.  

September is about learning the ropes, meeting new friends, and settling into a new routine. 

We are so fortunate to be in a community where we have time carved out of  our schedule to be a whole.  On Tuesday, Day 2, we got together as an entire student body and met our "families".  The activity was to name their family and create their family crest.  We ended the time together with a rendition of "Baby Shark" - just for fun!

Charlie and his family.

Maya and her family.

Madison and her family.

Braden and his family.

Remy and her family.

Peyton and her family.

Grace and her family.

**Half day students will participate in family activities as well. 

Outside Play

We will go outside everyday weather permitting.  Please make sure your child is wearing sneakers and appropriate clothing.  Hopefully the rain stops so we can get back out to our wonderful play space!

We are really trying to have healthy and delicious snacks this school year.  We enjoyed yummy apples at snack time!

I am so proud at how well the Nursery class has worked this week.  They are eager to try and learn new, challenging work.  We are already up to an hour work period!!  That is super impressive!!!

Take a look at us hard at work!

We will practice safety drills with the entire school throughout the course of the school year.  Prior to the drills there is a lot of conversation about the drill and what we do with ourselves to keep us safe.  We had our first fire drill this week.  As a class we talked about why we get out of the building, firemen are helpers, and the loud bell is not scary just telling us to get out. The bell was startling however, we did a great job!
