This month’s sign language word is “MILK”. To sign the word “milk,” open and close your hand to resemble milking a cow.
Your child may cry to express their needs, but as your child learns to express himself with language, he will rely less on crying. you can work with your toddler to help build vocabulary they need to communicate wants and needs with words.
This month, your child will practice retelling familiar stories in her own words, understand the concept of four, and learn names for types of locations (i.e. beach, park, mountains)
This month, your child will continue using sequence vocabulary (i.e. first, second), name basic shapes, and learn about farms and farm animals.
This month, your child will retell favorite stories, count items in groups to determine which group has more, and distinguish healthy from less healthy foods.
This month, your child will describe the similarities and differences between two stories, create her own short story and tell it aloud, and identify whether a group of objects is greater than, less than, or equal to another group of objects.

The Snowy Day
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
We are closed on January 21st for a teacher development day. Please be sure to find alternate care for your child in advance.
We have parent teacher conferences January 28- February 1. Please sign up on your child’s classroom door to reserve your time slot.
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate. Children may not attend school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours if they display any of the following:
- Fever of 100 degrees of more—must be fever free for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medicine before returning to school
- Vomiting, diarrhea or stomach upset
- Heavy nasal discharge requiring wiping every 305 minutes
- Persistent, non-productive or barking cough
- Sore throat
- Skin rash, including diaper rash
- Head lice
- Symptoms of a communicable disease
- Fussy, cranky behavior unlike child’s normal demeanor that may indicate illness
