The children collected And counted five sticks to make their very own bon fire. They also glued on red and orange shiny paper for the fire. The Hebrew word for fire is Aish We sang a aish is fire song that taught us fire is hot and we shouldn’t go near it or touch it. Rain/water makes the fire go away so our bon fire was pushed off till Friday.
The school wide bon fire with the Rabbi was an amazing sight to see. We all sang together and got to eat s’mores made by the Morah’s. The marshmallows were so sticky.
With spring in the air and Shavuot on its way we explored in our outdoor classroom this week. We planted with our shovels and spoons. Used our trucks for digging. The children’s imagination grew as they used Wood chips for plates and served mud pies to each other. Balancing was another way to strengthen our muscles.
We have two butterflies in our classroom. The children were fascinated to see the life cycle transform. Our butterflies are still babies and can’t fly yet. Did you know butterflies eat apples and oranges just like people? We will release them on Tuesday when we get back to school. We joined the three year’s old class as they released their beautiful butterflies into the sky. The children squealed with delight and waved goodbye to the butterflies.
