January was a busy month in the Grasshopper class. We started off the month by welcoming 2021. Happy New Year! This month was super exciting. We learned a lot of things. The unit of Healthy Habits has a lot to offer beginning by eating healthy foods like apples, bananas, grapes, lettuce, and tomatoes. We introduced the letters A, B, C, D, and E and the numbers 21, 22, 23, and 19. Colors white, red, green, pink, black. Shapes octagon, crescent, hexagon, pentagon. We celebrated MLK’s birthday. We also celebrated inauguration day. Our first woman Vice President was sworn in! Fridays is Spirit Day where we wear our Spirit Day shirts. January was a blast, and we can’t wait until February to see what’s next.
January was an exciting month. We started off with a Happy New Year….Welcome 2022, Martin Luther Day and Parade. The children loved the cake we had for his birthday celebration, then onto 100th day of school. The posters and shirts were amazing to see, the creativity the parents have had this year is outstanding to have. Show and Tell is every Friday and Homework is due as well. The themes were unique weather, healthy habits, and Martin Luther King Jr. We learned a lot with these themes, with weather, how to get rid of germs, and how to practice healthy habits.

: In the month of January the children talked about the weather. They had fun with making M.L.K. hats and they made hats for 100th day of School. The children celebrated the 100th day of school by counting 100 items that they brought in for their class. The children made 100th day of School trail mix, which was a delicious treat for the day.
