PreK-4C kicked off April with Mr. B and a study of bugs and insects. The children learned all about the life cycle of a honeybee, and used pattern blocks to construct fun mosaics. In addition they practiced their numbers 10 through 20, by building bug towers and reviewing concepts like more, less, most and equal. They also had fun with process art, using “baking soda paint”. The students witnessed the chemical reaction of baking soda and vinegar and how it impacts the blending of primary colors to make new colors! One of the favorite things we did this month was our trip to the Rutgers Farm! We learned how to take care of all the animals, what kind of food they eat, and even got to pet some of them! We also did a study of chickens, as we prepare for the baby chicks to come and visit CNS next week. Finally, we had a fun visit with the Lizard Guy! Not only did we meet several reptiles, but we got to touch and feel all different types of unique and memorable animals.
After going to Community Nursery School myself almost 30 years ago and having so many fun and loving memories there… when it came time to send my children to preschool I knew exactly where they would be going. My daughter is a recent “graduate” from the preK Monday-Friday class with all five afternoon enrichments. I currently have a son in the young Learners class, and have another little one who will be starting next September. We can’t say enough nice things about the staff and teachers at CNS. They show you nothing but love, care and smiles from the minute the greet you in the parking lot (valet service!!!!!). We look forward to more art work, learning and laughter with our CNS family.
