Celebrating Jesus' Birthday at VCP

Our classes have been enjoying the Christmas season at VCP in many different ways. We've made special gifts, read the Christmas story, baked cookies, predicted the first snowfall, sang Christmas carols in a gazebo, practiced our very special Christmas Nativity program and much more!

Below are a few photos of these precious moments.

Graphing With Our 4-Year Old Class!

Throughout the year, our 4-year-old class will be exploring numbers, counting and organizing data by graphing information. Graphs make counting and comparing meaningful and provide opportunities to explore and discover numbers, letters and letter sounds and other literacy skills. They also provide opportunities for children to develop social skills.

Recently, during 4-year-old Lunch-a-Bunch, students graphed information about the first letter of their name, how many boys were in the classroom vs. the number of girls and more! During these activities, we practiced counting, collecting information, reading results, organizing data and even addition and subtraction!

We will continue graphing throughout the year using themes, holidays and everyday items to compare and sort.
