Who do I look like?
Tracing our bodies!
Words cannot describe how we feel this week. The yeladim have grown so much. All their experiences and their growth of Torah knowledge has made them into such wonderful and mature yeladim. Thank you for letting us into their lives!
We started a special project for a special person. Cannot really share much information, but maybe the Mommies know what is going on!
The yeladim went outside on Monday, and noticed the wall that the men were starting to build around Pesach time. We also saw a big truck lifting the heavy bricks as well. And of course we saw our flower garden and noticed that the soil was very dry, so they took the hose and watered the garden.
This week we had our bake sale along with our lemonade stand. The Sunflowers made chocolate balls. We mixed cocoa powder, sugar , rice krispies, margarine, vanilla, and non dairy whipping cream. The yeladim mixed the mixture together and we rolled them into balls and dipped them into different kinds of sprinkles and icing sugar! YUM! Thank you to everyone who bought our goodies! We promise to use the money for something that we need!
We wish everyone a wonderful summer and cannot wait to see you next year for another amazing year!
Here’s what we loved last week:
-we played with play dough and used cookie cutters and rollers
-we made Father’s Day cards
-we sang songs
-we built towers
-we explored the Exploration Room
-we traced our hands
-we experienced glue and its texture
-we read books
Let’s do it again!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to be part of our celebration! It was so nice to share our morning with all the parents, grandparents, and siblings who came to join us. We really enjoyed it and we hope you did too.
We are sad the year is ending, but are very excited for the last few days of school. We have fun things planned until the last minute.
Here is the video we showed, if you would like to watch it again or share it with anyone.
It was an amazing morning. The yeladim made us all so proud. Thank you for sharing your children with us. We were so overwhelmed with emotion as we are sure you were too when the boys received tzitzit and when the girl’s received their candlesticks. They have really grown throughout the year. You got a glimpse of what we have done during Circle Time and Shabbos Party. And now they have the tools they need to go to Pre – k and beyond. Enjoy your beautiful children. Hashem gave them to you, and may you have tremendous nachas!
We did something very different in the Exploration Room. We had mirrors on the table and the yeladim had available different loose parts, like stones, small shells, sticks, foam rectangles, and puzzle pieces. The yeladim had the opportunity to create to their hearts content. Before we knew it the were inspired to create shapes which eventually led them to create buildings and letters. They were so excited to see where their creations led them. They really enjoyed it! We will certainly revisit this activity again before school ends!
Hope you had a wonderful Shavuot! We were so excited that author Chana Stiefel was able to come to our school. She wrote the funny book called Daddy Depot. She explained how the idea of the story came to her. One night her daughter became very frustrated with her father and wanted to trade for another Daddy. Where else would one go to trade in your daddy? Daddy Depot of course! Chana read the book in our kitah and she brought the book to life with all her different dress up props. We thank her so much for coming. If you want to read more about Chana’s book click here.
We are getting ready for the special Sunflower celebration that will take place this Thursday. Our kitah had a fun time making the dough for our challah that we will be eating this week. The yeladim have become professional bakers this year. We will be shaping the dough and then baking it. Can’t wait for the challah smell to permeate the school!
The yeladim love cutting and tracing. They remember how to hold their scissors with their thumbs up and they love cutting cutting different shapes and strips. They also trace different shapes and color with markers and colored pencils as well. Great for their fine motor skills!
Looking forward to seeing you on Thursday at 9:00 in our classroom!
What a joy, and a tremendous merit, to be in Israel for the 50th Yom Yerushalayim! As Rabbi Riskin said, “You have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to see the miracles of our generation!” Redemption is on it’s way, much faster than I ever realized before…
We are having a ball together in Little Beginners Class. The children really enjoy interacting with each other. It is so fun to watch them explore together. Here are some of our favorite things to do:
– play as a group / share our toys in the class
– color the letters of our names with chunky crayons
– clean up after ourselves
– sing during Circle Time and Dovening
– use dot paints
– ride bikes and go down the slide together
– play with rice in the rice table
– play with the big bouncy balls
– dance to music
Yes we have been quite busy and it has only been two days!
We are off for Shavuot this week but we look forward to being together with all our friends next week!
