The children enjoy being outdoors so we try to spend as much time as possible outside. They love to explore the different areas of our park and find the little treasures that nature shares with us. They collect all different types of sticks and stones and make piles and designs on the ground. they love to use the magnifying glasses to look more closely at their discoveries. And we love to hear them use language to describe what they see!!

We decided to collect some of these items and make them into a mural for inside our school. They really enjoyed planning out on the large mural paper where they would put each treasure. And boy did they have fun with the glue! They loved using pine branches and acorns and the other items to actually paint the glue onto the paper and then to hold the branches and items in place. What a great time we all had!

 

We finished up our top secret Mother’s Day presents and baked challah for Shabbat.
Have a happy Mother’s Day! Your children loved telling us over and over how much they love their mommies!! They worked with so much love on the gifts they prepared for you and we know are so excited to show you their creations!!!

We had so much fun preparing our Mother’s Day gifts that the children wanted to know when we were going to make something for our fathers too. Guess what? Father’s Day is coming up pretty soon! We collected rocks outside and began creating something special just for them.

Shabbat Shalom!
