In February the girl's will be making Valentine cards for their families. The class theme is love and friendship. We are working on a class book project learning about colors incorporating our Valentine Day theme.
We will be learning about the Presidential History of The United States through read aloud books, while working on class activities.
For the Lunar New Year we will make lanterns and dragons.
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.
