We had an exciting month. We enjoyed the warm days with buggy rides and stayed nice and warm inside on the cold days. We sang songs and used puppets to sing songs about the weather, and also about healthy habits. We look forward to another exciting month in February.

Grasshopper Twos


January was a busy month in the Grasshopper class. The children learned so much about weather and how to dress appropriately for weather conditions. We heard a story about a man who had a dream. His name was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We had a cooking project making a rainbow salad and it was really good! In February we will celebrate Valentine’s Day, the 100th Day of School, President’s Day and Black History. Our shape for this month is the heart. We will learn about forests and safari animals.

January was a busy month! We learned about the weather and what types of clothing we need to wear for each type of weather. We also talked about healthy habits such as eating fruits and vegetables and washing our hands. We continue to practice first names and last names, math, story time and reviewing our letters. Now we are looking forward to another exciting month.

January has been a very exciting month.  We have learned about Martin Luther King, Jr. and all his work to gain equality for all people. We have talked about different types of weather and how to dress accordingly. We read our book of the month “White Wonderful Winter” and talked about snow. We also talked about healthy habits. We can’t wait to see what fun we will have next month.

January was a fun-filled month for our three year old class. They learned about mittens, hats and scarves. We heard stories about cold weather and polar bears. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was celebrated in our class with a birthday party including hats and banners.  We even made a special friendship snack mix in his honor. We ended the month learning about healthy habits. We talked about eating healthy and washing our hands to remove germs. In February we will be studying forest and safari animals, as well as, celebrating Black History Month and a visit from the dental van.

Welcome back to VPK! January has been a wonderful month as we started a new year with lots to learn. We learned about the weather. We also talked about rainbows and what makes them appear. We were able to enjoy the outside with all of the warm weather we had in January. We also enjoyed making Rainbow Salad and Monkey Salad. Most importantly of all we learned about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! That he was one of the greatest heroes in the 20th century. We can’t wait for the fun to start in February.
