Flashlight Friday was great fun. We had tea light in the Magnatiles, a blue rope light with the sea animals on the floor, a rainbow parachute tent and a swirl of Christmas lights on a table for them to draw- with oil pastels on black paper. Shadow play was popular, as were representational drawings of the lights.
The Caterpillars milked a 'cow' in the water table - following their field trip to Drumlin Farm. It was fun to overhear their conversations. Photo by Emily Sterne Photography.
We are talking about light and shadow these days- inspired by two books they enjoy (Olivia and the Missing Toy- and Mouse, Look Out). On Tuesday, Emily traced the shadow of their hands (held about 6 inches over the table). Today we created a shadow area with an overhead projector. We see shadows every where- it is fun to watch their wonder. Photo by Emily Sterne Photography.
Last week, Caterpillars noticed that Nancy was taller than Candice (and our parent helper was in between). We talked about height and growth at snack. Candice drew and they painted an emperor penguin (actual size 4 feet tall) which we put up on the wall next to record their heights through the year.
Yesterday's CNS Yard Sale was a big success. A beautiful day; many shoppers -including current and alumni families, and neighborhood folks interested in a good deal. Thanks to all!

The 2017-2018 school year is off to a relaxing start. The energy in each classroom is happy and excited. Children arrive each morning eager to begin the day.
In light of recent events, we at Cambridge Nursery School would like to take a moment to reaffirm our commitment to being a safe and loving place for all kinds of families, regardless of race, religion, or family structure. There is no hate within the walls of CNS; never has been and never will be.
