ITS ALL ABOUT SCIENCE!!!

This year was the first year our Nursery girls participated in the school wide STEM FAIR

In January, our project was to create a "Bear Cave" to show how a bear hibernates in the winter.

Using the book, "Going On A Bear Hunt", we collected all natural materials from our own hunt in our backyard.

Here the girls are proudly showing their project.



Our 8th Grade walked around with nursery to explain each STEM project in our fair. I was delighted to see how interested they all were in Science


Celery Stalk Experiment
Using celery stalks, clear cups of water and food coloring, the girls were able to learn how roots work  to carry nutrients up to stem. 
It was a great visual experiment, and the girls were amazed to see how the celery stalks colors changed each day...




Cinco de Mayo Picnic 
The class was invited to Pre-K 4 Cinco de Mayo celebration. The day was spent learning about Mexican traditions. The girls danced the "Mexican Hat Dance" and also enjoyed guacamole and chips in our beautiful backyard

Happy New Year

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.
