Miss Lori’s Nursery School Newsletter for April 1
Dear Nursery Parents,
Thank you all for being extremely supportive during this very difficult time. I am constantly trying to improve my computer skills in order for Zoom to work better! Hopefully dividing the class in half will be beneficial. It was so terrific for us to see each other Monday and for the children to see each other. We are doing our best to be in touch. All of you have my e-mail as well as my cell phone number. If you want to or need to reach out, PLEASE FEEL FREE. Thank you to Nate’s parents for giving me a Zoom tutorial!!! Please remember to have my picture as the main screen so that your child will be able to see any material I may be holding. Thank you! Fingers crossed tomorrow’s meetings are better than Monday!
I have a few more websites that you may want to check out. 1) Nickelodeonparents.com. This is for free coloring pages you can print. 2) APP.COXCAMPUS.ORG for 17 Alphabet Activities. 3) BORED TEACHERS.COM. This contains 50 Online Art and Music resources to help learn and create from home. 4) READ BRIGHTLY.COM. This contains educational resources and activities for children ages 3-5. Lastly I have come across a fun JELL-O PLAY-DOH RECIPE! It is a No Cook Play-Doh Recipe.—INGREDIENTS: 4 different colors of Jell-O, 2 tablespoons of cream of tartar per color, (total of 8 if you have four colors), 1 tablespoon of vegetable or olive oil per color, 1 1/3 cup of flour per color, ½ cup of salt per color, 1 cup of boiling water per color. DIRECTIONS: Per color, place the flour, half a cup of salt, cream of tartar into a bowl and mix. Next, in a measuring cup, add boiling water and jell-o package and mix. Add in the oil to the jell-o and water and mix again. Add the jell-o, water and oil mixture to the dry ingredients in the bowl. Mix this all together. Sprinkle a bit of flour on a cutting board; take out the jell-o mixture and HAVE FUN! Store each color in a Ziploc. It will stay well in the refrigerator.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate so that your children can get outside as much as possible. As you take a walk with your child, see if they can observe some signs of Spring. Perhaps they will observe the buds beginning to show up on the trees, flowers coming up from the ground, worms wiggling around after it rains, bees buzzing and birds chirping to name a few!
Again, feel free to reach out to me via e-mail or my cell phone. Looking forward to “Zooming” with you all tomorrow!!!
