Our older toddlers picked leaves from our playground and had fun glueing them back onto their own tree!
The Grasshoppers have had so much fun planting plants, digging in the dirt, and finding worms this month! We have learned that a lot of our food comes from plants. In our own garden we planted tomatoes. We have also learned the basic parts of a plant, and what plants need to grow. In addition, we enjoyed observing our caterpillars as they grew into butterflies.
The month of March had our grasshoppers celebrating and exploring colors! Students completed color puzzles, sorted toys by color and even mixed colors together to see what would happen.
In February we read about and explored our feelings. Our toddlers are beginning to notice how friends are feeling when they are sad, as well as beginning to be able to express how they feel throughout the day. Toddler got to celebrate and make valentines for people they care about.
The Grasshoppers were “On the GO” last month with a transportation theme, so in January they are learning about the season that has everyone snuggled up in one spot….WINTER! STEM activities include watching ice melt, painting snow and working with pinecones. Below Grasshoppers make polar bears and paint the snow (it was cold!)
Painting with pumpkins and gourds (see above)!
Grasshoppers have visited the pumpkin patch! Our toddlers found every decorated and hidden pumpkin in their classroom!
October fun in the Leaves!
