  • How are various modes of transportation the same and different?
  • What types of clothing/uniform do community workers wear?
  • Who operates vehicles in my community? What do they wear?


  • Creating trains out of egg cartons, we will encourage children to build bridges out of art materials/blocks. We will build traffic signs and build roads. Children will also make a vehicle of their choice.
  • Children will create maps, paper airplanes, keys, and passports.
  • Children will learn of different forms of transportation and share any experiences they have.

The children will continue to identify written numerals 1-10, they will count objects to 10, and sort and classify and make patterns using different types of manipulatives. We will learn how to identify shapes by their size, corners, and formation.

Happy New Year families!

Welcome back to school. As we continue on our art education journey, we will explore Matisse, Frida Kahlo, African art, clay and so much more! I look forward to creating with you all of my little artist in this new year.  I'll see you in either our virtual or in-person art studio!

  • Parent Engagement

  • Discuss different types of transportation vehicles that people use (car, train, airplane, boat, bicycles, etc.) and why and how they use them with your children and discuss where these vehicles are used (land, air, water).
  • Numerals are all around us. Help your child notice and read numerals on common items in your home and around your community. Have your child count objects when walking to and from school or when driving in the car, this will help reinforce the mathematical skills that they are learning in school
