Toddlers

Every day my friends and I will read with my teachers, sing, make fun art projects, learn about colors, build with blocks and have lots of fun! On nice days we will play outside; on “bad weather” days we’ll exercise our big muscles in the indoor gym. In my new classroom I will eat with my friends at a big table using the perfect-sized fork and spoon and a sippy cup. I will brush my teeth every day after lunch with water and sleep on a cot with my own blanket.
