This month’s baby sign is “All Done”. To sign the phrase “all done” place both hands in front of your chest and flip them outwards and inwards.
Activities using music and songs add fun and happiness to your child’s day. Moving to music helps your child learn that she can use her muscles in different and fun ways. Songs help children practice words that she is just learning to say.
This month, your child will learn to connect the events in stories to her own life experiences, match animals with their sounds, and continue identifying shapes and colors.
This month, your child will learn to count to 30, recognize numbers 1-10, and identify animals and their habitats.
This month, your child will retell favorite stories, and count items in groups to determine which group has more, and distinguish healthy from less healthy foods.
This month, your child will use adjectives to describe settings, place objects in order by length, and add and subtract using concrete objects.

We are having a special Valentine’s Day Fundraiser called the Pony Pucker-Up. We are raising money for our school as we challenge each classroom to raise the most amount of money. You as the parents, will decide which classroom teachers have to kiss a real life pony as you donate to their classroom. The teachers that you help raise the most amount of money, have to Pucker-Up for our Pony!
The Pony Pucker-Up event will be held at 2:30 p.m. Families are encouraged to attend. Valentine’s Day Parties will immediately follow.
Valentine’s are encouraged! Please bring enough for each student in your child’s class. We will have bags for distribution. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Schools are closed on President’s Day, but we are open. Please let us know if you would like to sign your elementary student up for our Camp during this school break.
