We have been learning all about arctic animals in Pre K 3B. We started this unit with polar bears. We did a science experiment where we felt ice water (it was cold!) then we put Crisco around a rubber glove and put our hands back in the water (it was warm!). This acted like a polar bear’s blubber, which keeps them warm in the winter. We made several polar bear projects, and learned some new Winter songs. We also celebrated several birthdays, and have been having fun together as a class learning our alphabet though several fun circle time activities. Additionally, we have been practicing our fine motor skills by writing our names. I’m so proud of all the little learners in my class!
CNS has been an absolute blessing for my family. I couldn’t think of a better place for both of my children to have their first experience of school. My daughter Julia attended CNS for two years: in the three-year-old program and then for the four-year-old pre-K program. She is now in 2nd grade and looks forward to picking up her younger brother from CNS everyday and giving all of her former preschool teachers a big hug. She has such great memories of her time there. My son Joey is now in his second year at CNS in Mrs. Smith’s pre-K class. This is the first year we tried out the afternoon enrichment programs and we are thrilled with how fun and exciting his days are. Joey adores Mrs Smith and all of his classmates and he really loves the art, music, & cooking enrichment classes. Both of my children love going to school every single day because of the support, love and acceptance they received at CNS. Plus, Joey says “It’s so much FUN!!”
The staff at CNS has become our extended family and the friendships we have made with other CNS families are going to be lifelong. I am going to be so sad next year when my youngest is ready to move on to kindergarten and our time at community nursery school will be over.
