Congratulations to the Nursery Class of 2020!! Even though our year ended differently from any other year in my 20 years of teaching, it was still wonderful! Your Zoom Celebration was very touching and exciting! The Nursery Class of 2020 will always hold a special place in my heart! Thank you for inviting me into your homes and visiting mine. I loved seeing your moms, dads, grandparents and siblings during our virtual meets. My daughters also looked forward to seeing you on a weekly basis. They had so much fun listening to your show and tell! Enjoy your Summer, you deserve it!!
Below I have posted some pictures of my favorite projects: Disguise the Letters of the Alphabet. You did such an amazing job with all your virtual assignments but these were definitely my favorite!
It has been 3 weeks since the Nursery class has been home and virtually learning! I am so proud of my class! They have been doing a fabulous job with all of the changes given to them. We are meeting in Google Meets once a week. I look forward to seeing them on my computer screen and completing morning circle with them.They are navigating Google Classroom and completing their assignments. Their work is remarkable! I have included some pictures of the children in action. The pictures show them working on assignments that I gave them through Google Classroom.
Today is Friday! We did great with our virtual teaching this week! Google classroom is up and running and has been a success. We completed many different assignments together.(Math,English,Science,etc.) Most importantly we have been able to communicate well using both Class Dojo and Google Classroom. Thank you so much to the parents who have guided their children at home. Job well done!
Good morning class!! Miss you guys already!! Remember to sing your “Hello” song today.
Hello, Hello, Hello and Hi to you and you and you. I’m so glad you came today we can work and learn and play oh Hello, Hello and Hi to you and you and you!
It’s St. Patrick’s Day today! Lucky the leprechaun is on the loose! He is probably making a mess of our classroom right now! I have a great idea! Make a trap for him. Maybe we can catch him. You can use anything you have in your house…. legos, boxes, pillows, etc. If you don’t catch him, it’s ok! We can try again next year. Let me know what happens through google classroom or class dojo. Whatever is up and running for you.
The month of February was full of fun! We learned songs for Valentine’s Day and sang them to our special person who came to school to celebrate with us. We also celebrated the 100th day of school. The children dressed like they were hundred years old and they looked so adorable!
Catholic School’s Week flew by!The children had a blast this week! We started off the week signing Born to be Wild. The children did a wonderful job. We also made a snowmen with our fourth grade buddies. Both the fourth grade and nursery had a great time. We ended our week in tie dye to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the school. We had a bagel breakfast and attended a game show. What a great week!!
Catholic Schools Week is beginning this Sunday. All are welcome to 12:30 Mass. After Mass the school will have an open house. During open house all the classes will be open for you to visit. You can even meet with the teachers and staff. On Monday students will be signing a song from the 60’s to celebrate Our Lady of the Snows 60th anniversary. Our Lady of the Snows opened in 1959. There will be another open house from 9-11 on Monday. On Friday the Nursery school children will be participating in a game show. They will have so much fun! Students will also have a bagel breakfast on Friday! Happy Catholic Schools Week!
The picture below shows our classroom door, which celebrates the school’s 60th anniversary! In the year 1960 our children were drawing with Etch Sketch. In the year 2020 they are using phones and their fingers to draw.
Christmas is around the corner. OLS Nursery celebrated by having ugly sweater day, receiving candy canes in our shoes on Saint Nicholas Day from Santa and Santa came to our school to visit us and read us a book. I would like to wish a OLS Nursery families a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year!
October is over! Here are some adorable Halloween pictures of Nursery to help us say goodbye to October 2019. The students had a wonderful time parading around the school in their costumes.

Nursery helped to carve their very own pumpkin this week! After I carved a hole up on top of the pumpkin, the children reached in and removed all the pulp and seeds. They had a great time getting their hands dirty!
Nursery class had a wonderful time going pumpkin picking! The students were able to pick their very own pumpkin from the front of the Church. After they picked their pumpkin, we decorated it with stickers. Each child got to give their pumpkin a personality!
A Happy Birthday to our September birthdays: Samantha and Isabela. I would also like to thank their moms for coming in to read a special book to us on their special day! The children enjoyed your visit!
Welcome to a new school year!! The students are off to a great start! They are getting to know each other and learning all about how to be good friends. We are taking advantage of the beautiful weather by visiting our school playground on a daily basis. The children are enjoying their time outside. I look forward to a great year with nursery!!
Specials for Nursery are: Tuesday- Music
Friday- Art and Gym
CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NURSERY CLASS OF 2019!! You did an amazing job at your celebration. We are so very proud of you. We all enjoyed your singing and are very impressed that you can all spell your names. Ms. Ana, Ms. Mary and I also enjoyed sharing breakfast with everyone and going to our neighborhood playground. Thank you to all the parents for their support throughout the school year!
Enjoy your Summer!!
A big thank you to Amanat’s dad and his fellow police officers. They came to school today and spoke to the children about stranger danger. They also allowed the children to sound the siren on the patrol car! The children had a blast!!
What an exciting morning!! We released our butterflies outside in front of the school. The children had a blast!!
I can hardly believe that the month of May is almost over! Nursery is enjoying their final days with their friends! We are enjoying the weather by going outside and playing in our school playground! The students really love their time outside!
During these final days we are also learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. Our caterpillars have turned into chrysalis. We can’t wait to see them become butterflies. The students eagerly watch them in their habitat every day!
Thank you for participating in Book Buddy. The children love story time in class. Remember to return your books every Friday, so that I can put new books in by Monday for the week. The completion of homework is also a coming along well. Homework prepares the children for Pre-K and reinforces what we are learning in school. Please remember to put your child’s name on their homework. We are learning how to write our names in school. Try to have your child print their own name on their homework.
Enjoy your four day weekend!!
A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO OUR MYSTERY READERS!! The children are enjoying all of the stories!!
Welcome to Nursery!! I am looking forward to a wonderful 2018/2019 school year with the children. In the months of September and October we will be getting to know each other and our classroom routines. We will also be spending time in our playground area. The children truly enjoy their time outside. Let’s hope we have good weather throughout Fall. Throughout the season of Fall we will begin to explore apples and pumpkins. I can’t wait to carve a jack-o-lantern and make apple prints with the children!
I hope everyone had a wonderful ending to the year 2018! As the school year progresses we are continuing to learn and have fun. During the second trimester we will be learning about the season of winter. The students will be making a snowman. Each snowball will have a letter in their name. The students will also be making winter hats and gloves. They will also make a snowflake to hang on our friendship tree in the hallway. Along with all the winter themed activities the students will continue to learn about the letters in the alphabet. We are currently learning about the letter “W” for winter. Our next letter will be the letter “M” for mittens. We also continue to learn about our numbers and shapes on a daily basis. The year 2019 is off to a great start for Nursery!
