The children in the 5 Day Pre-K class started a unit on Clothing. They were given a huge bag of clothes and they had to describe and sort them various ways. They learned about SMALL, MEDIUM, and LARGE and why knowing the size of a piece of clothing is important. The children read a book about washing and drying clothes and they were able to load washing machines after sorting the clothes into lights, colors, and darks. We talked about what you would wear if you went to different places. The children were then given material and cloth and had to dress a paper doll to match where they were going. We can’t have party dresses at the beach!!!! Many girls created beautiful dresses for weddings and dances. They even made high heal shoes for the paper doll to wear! The children also spent the week with our letter person, Mr. Z. They enjoyed many Z activities but I think the most favorite had to be taking a school-wide survey on who was wearing zippers, buttons, snaps and velcro. They kept track by using tally marks. They were so proud of themselves when they asked each class! We all agree that this week was filled with ZAINY fun!!!!!
All three of my children are CNS graduates, and I have to tell you, Community Nursery School provided an outstanding education for all of them. All three of our kids are adopted, and we worried about their transition since we were so focused on helping them attach to us in our family. The warm and wonderful staff at CNS completely understood, and helped our kids transition to school at their own pace. They were completely flexible to our needs, and as a result each of our kids had a great pre-school experience. I highly recommend CNS to anyone looking for a warm, wonderful place for their kids to go to preschool! Thanks CNS!
