Our room was transformed into a winter wonderland, giving the children opportunities to see, taste, smell, touch, and hear. With the CD playing a cheery snow song, the children visited our snow corner, complete with gray sky and snowballs, which felt prickly.
Then we made “snow” play dough using cornstarch and white hand cream. The cornstarch felt soft and looked like snow, and the smooth white lotion also looked like snow. The best part: rolling, patting, and cookie cutting, and prickling our beautiful play dough. “I made a butterfly” (Asher). Dahlia liked squishing it with her fingers. Daniela made a snack.
And, since we’re all about winter and snow this week, what could be more timely than Thursday’s flurries. The snow tasted cold and wet
Parent Night was a big success. It it is privilege for us to be your children’s Morahs.
Have a peaceful and joyous Shabbat,
Morah Sherry and Morah Blimie
