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 have begun to learn some of our Montessori materials.  We have worked really hard and are so excited to accomplish new things!

Scholastic Books order forms went home this week. 
 If you would like to order books you may do so by filling out the form and sending it back to school OR you may order online using our class code which can be found on the back of the order form.  Orders due by September 18th.

We visited the HCA Library this week.  Each cycle we will visit the library to read a story and take books out for our classroom.  Library books will not be sent home.

Play Dough is a really great exercise to strengthen a child's pincer grasp and fine motor skills.  We used the play dough to roll, pinch and twist it into silly faces.  

In Nursery 3 we are a family.  We take care of ourselves, our classroom and our friends.  We signed our "Class Contract" stating that we will do just that.
