Happy New Year! January is a very exciting month for the Toodler Room!
We will be reading books such as The Gingerbread Man and decorating our own gingerbread men. The toddlers will also be reading There was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow and we will be making our own snowmen with paper towel rolls.
Our shape for the month will be a circle and we will be focusing on the colors, blue and white.
For February, the children will discuss who we love and who love us. We will read books such as Llama Llama I Love You and Guess How Much I Love You. The toddlers will create valentines for family members and a collage of people we love. Our shape for the month will be a circle, and we will be focusing on the colors red and pink.

We say goodbye to 2014. As we begin a new year we continue to see the children grow in development and skills!
2015 will have us celebrating a bird's Christmas. We will be making bird feeders and feeding our feathered companions as the weather gets colder. We will be making some snowflakes and thinking of snow. Hopefully, we will be able to get outside and get some fresh air and expand some energy!
February will bring us to learn about feelings. We will also be getting ready for Valentine's Day, exploring colors of pink, red, and white and doing projects around this theme. Celebrating Chinese New Year is also on the agenda. We did this last year and the children had a wonderful time being involved in a parade around the Center and sampling Chinese food for lunch!
WE HAVE SLOTS OPEN IN OUR PRESCHOOL CLASSES FOR 3 AND 4 YEAR OLDS!
Happy New Year to all! January is going to be a fun filled month!
The children will be learning to recognize the letters Q, S, and I. We will be designing a class quilt. Marshmallow snowmen, a snake cake, and "Stone Soup" is on the agenda for the letter S. The children will also be making igloos and ink blots and learning about hibernation.
Looking ahead to February:
"Cabin Fever" beach party
Ground Hog Day/shadows
