MAZEL TOV TO YAEL and HER FAMILY!!
WELCOME BACK MIKA!!
During our Morning Work Time, your children had the opportunity to use feathers to paint on a triangle shaped paper. They also made a variety of triangles with connectors and magna tiles, sometimes referring to pictures of pyramids that were placed on the table they were working on. The activity was a project in connection with Pesach. After clean up, while the children were settling down and preparing their bodies for our Morning Meeting, I laid out on the carpet: a feather, a brown paper bag, a wooden spoon, and a candle. I reminded the children that during the seven days of Pesach, we don’t eat foods that rise and take time to bake in the oven. I mentioned to the children that the items that were in front of them are used for the bedikat chametz; search of chametz. I then said that we were going to make believe it was night time and go on a search for chametz inside our classroom! Your children followed Feigy with her spoon, paper bag, and feather and did found all ten bags of chametz that were hidden!
Before going outside for our gross motor time, I read the book, Brothers and Sisters. Every child in our class was able to relate to this book in one way or another. This morning we played basketball, used the hoops to try to wiggle in and out of, played soccer, colored with chalk, and played with the children in the 2-3 class for part of the time. Thank you Hila and friends for sharing the space with us!
Before lunch time, your children worked either with the knobbed cylinders, stringing buttons on lace, or lacing tree cards. Before cleaning up for lunch, Ben showed me that he made the letter daled using two of the knobbed cylinder sets! We had time for Show and Tell. Ilan shared his red bus with his friends. Sophie told us that her doll was named “Rapunzel.” Lelo brought in his construction vehicle (with sound effects!), Arcady showed us his ambulance. Thank you to Lelo for explaining to his friends what’s inside an ambulance: “people that are hurt,” as well as, “they are going to the doctor.”
Merav reviewed colors, numbers, and animals with your children. Mushka reviewed the story of baby Moshe.
