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 read a lot of books this month and sand a lot of songs. We look forward to another exciting month in February.

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.

Another highlight for the VPK’s was learning about Healthy/non healthy foods. We also exercised which the children enjoyed doing daily. We also talked about rainbows and what makes them appear.

January was a fun filled month for our three year old class. They enjoyed talking about Dr. Martin Luther King. They also made MLK hats. We ended the month learning about healthy habits. The children named their favorite foods that they enjoy eating. Surprisingly, most of the children said they love broccoli or carrots. 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.
