Happy Valentines Day!!!!
Today we had an amazing day. We all looked so beautiful and handsome in our red attire.
Today we had a Valentine’s Day brunch. We had chicken and waffles, muffins, fruit, croissants, jam, and decorated sugar cookies.
We sang, had a dance party, traded valentines, and shared one kind thing that we loved about each other.
We enjoyed all of the food and treats and had a blast dancing and listening to songs about love.
We will see everyone tomorrow. Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Today was another great day at NES. We enjoyed our walk to the park where we saw big and small rocks. We had fun playing and making new friends, and learning, learning, learning.
Today we had a group observation project. We discussed rocks and mineral and observed them to see if the had any living characteristics. We learned about three types of rocks.
1. Metamorphic rock- made of heat and pressure (SLATE)
2. Sedimentary Rock- these rocks are made by years and years by sediments that come together and get really really hard. (LIMESTONE)
3. Igneous Rocks- are made when volcanoes erupt and when the lava cools it (GRANITE)
We talked about whether rocks are hard or soft, if they smell, and where to find rocks. Rocks sometimes have minerals in them that are important elements such as metals like gold and silver.
We also talked about what to do when we get angry. Should we use or hands, mouths, or feet, or should we use words, and get a teacher. We learned and practiced many different strategies to help us control our bodies when we are angry.
We had an amazing scientific day.
See you all in RED tomorrow.

Welcome to another magnificent Monday everyone.
We are so excited to be starting another week of fun and learning. Today we also welcomed two new friends to the NES Family.
Today since we were not all in our rain gear, we could not splish splash about, but we did use our imagination and pretended we were chasing storm clouds. We also read stories, had a dance break, and listened to a new story called “I Forgot” by Mercer Mayer. We loved it.
Today our friends learned all about the letter”R”. We talked about the sound it makes (which sounds like a lion’s roar), and thought about things that starts with that letter. Today we also learned about plants and what it means to be scared and angry.
Please check out the amazing answers our friends gave. We also used the dry erase board and markers to practice writing the letter “R”. We had an awesome day.
See you all tomorrow.
