With the new year comes many exciting things in our nursery program. We have started our book study, starting with the book "The Jacket I Wear In The Snow" by Shirley Neitzel.
The girls are creating their own version of this book by coloring the articles of clothing we need to wear for the Snow.
I am so excited to have introduced the girls to the famous artists, like, Vincent Van Gogh. The girls have recreated their artistic masterpiece, The Starry Night.
In February, I will introduce the Red Poppy, by Georgia O'Keefe.
While we read the Very Hungry Caterpillar , by Eric Carle, I will reinforce the days of the week, life cycle of a butterfly and creative thinking with questions; about new foods the caterpillar should try and where the butterfly should fly.

In January, we used shapes to make our winter penguin. Our themes were weather and winter animals.
The girls had been learning about famous artists. They recreated Red Poppy by Georgia O'Keeffe in art class. We will display it on our February bulletin board.
We are reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. The book reinforces counting, days of the week, foods, and of course butterflies' life cycle. Our creative thinking question was "If you were a caterpillar, you would try...
If you were a butterfly you would fly..." This introduced rhyming to the girls. Reading research supports rhyming as a pre-requisite to reading.
The girls are enjoying music and choice time in our classroom. Along with Girl Power twice a week.

Hard to believe that October is nearing its end. We had a great month learning about autumn, apples, pumpkins and witches!! Our favorite song is "Five Little Pumpkins."
Our classroom routines have become second nature. Along with our regular activities, we have been enjoying staying fit and healthy with "Girl Power" on Mondays and Wednesdays and we love Art on Fridays. Our outdoor playground is also a favorite Nursery activity!
November is around the corner... Our themes will be Thanksgiving and Family. We will continue to say our prayers and learn some new ones.
