Have you heard?  This week we became scientists!

In science, we did the Skittles Experiment.  This experiment provides many investigative opportunities. Skittles are coated in food coloring and sugar. When you pour water over the skittles the color coating dissolves spreading through the water.  The color sugar dissolves into the water and then diffuses through the water, making it the color of the skittle. 





We are so fortunate to be in a community where we have time carved out of  our schedule to be a whole.  On Monday, we got together as an entire student body and met our "families".  The students worked together to create family pennants which can be seen in our cafeteria.










We got some wiggles out this week with a fun gross motor activity:
Balloon Tennis!












This week we started our combined Montessori work period with Pre-K.  We have been working very hard learning new work.

Fostering a child's independence is an important aspect to development.  In Nursery 3 the children begin their independence journey.  Many of the children are struggling in pulling up their pants after using the bathroom.  I am always willing to assist after they have given it a good try; I ask that you do the same.  Encourage them to try themselves and then praise them for the attempt/completed task.
