Nursery News
March Edition

Time is certainly flying here in the Nursery!   We can hardly believe that it is already March.  We are thrilled that spring is just around the corner and are looking forward to spending more time outside.  We will be going outside to play whenever the weather allows so please have your child wear sneakers and weather appropriate clothing every day.

During the month of March, we will be reviewing the colors of the rainbow and learning about spring weather.  We will continue working on fine motor skills such as coloring, tracing, cutting and beading.  During our Religion Circle we will learn about St. Joseph, St. Patrick and the Lenten Season.   The day before St. Patrick’s Day our class will pair up with our eighth grade buddies to read stories and work together to design and build leprechaun “traps” to try to catch a leprechaun.

Ways You Can Help Your Child

*Read to your child as often as possible.

* Provide your child with the opportunity to practice cutting in a supervised setting.   We are working on scissor skills (holding the scissors properly, cutting on a line, and holding and turning the paper while cutting) in the classroom and the children are making a lot of progress in this area.



Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that you have.  You can reach me at the school or email me at sdowling5591@stjoeronkelem.org
