We have a new friend in our class! Welcome, Shalom Nissim! We are so glad you have come to join us!!
We continued our Purim activities by beginning to create a castle to turn our classroom into a scene from Shushan. We painted boxes with silver and gold as the first step.
Meanwhile, we’ve also been learning about health and hygiene. We read a book about germs and how we have to be careful to wash our hands and sneeze and cough into our elbows so the germs don’t spread. We saw a silly demonstration of germs spraying everywhere – Morah Kerry pretended to sneeze while she sprayed water from a spray bottle across the room. Yuck! Then she covered her face with her elbow while she sneezed. No germs spread that way! Everyone thought that was very funny.
We’ve been working on our colors and shapes too. We’re in the process of making a collage for each color. So far we did red, orange, yellow, green, and blue. We also played a fun matching game where we had to match the shapes and colors.
Another fun thing we did was measure each person in our class with ribbon against the wall. We can see how tall everyone is and we can’t wait to see how much we grow by the end of the year.
Thank you to Daniela’s mother for reading to us during library time this week.
