During snack on Thursday we re-read Dr. Seuss’s One Fish, Two Fish and then “Freddy the Fish” joined us during circle time.

We learned that some fish live in houses filled with blue water called fish tanks, and decided it would be fun to make our own. First we mixed blue paint into glue, and painted our fish tanks using paint brushes, toothbrushes, and sponges. We added some waves by placing bubble wrap (which was a lot of fun to pop), right on top of our glue paint. Some of us had a great time painting our hands the same color as the water. Next, we will add our colored fish.

As we all know, the grogger plays a huge part in Purim. To introduce this noisemaker, we spent time making sounds with different instruments. We noticed the different sounds each instrument makes by itself and the sounds made when we all play together. When we played our instruments on the sand table top and plastic bins, we made different sounds. All of the sound experimentation is leading up to the creation of our groggers.

Our Old McDonald song came to life. The children picked animal puppets and made the matching sound.

Welcome back Dahlia! Dahlia was our Shabbat Ema and David our Shabbat Abba.

Wishing you a joyous and peaceful Shabbat.
