8 Tevet, 5773
Shalom Nachshonim Families,
We have had another very eventful week at school. Here are the highlights of what occured this week.
-We had a lot of sensory activities this week in the kitah.
-ceramic clay in the play yard
-making sculptures out of our old play dough
- glueing different materials like feathers, craft sticks and pipe cleaners.
-We are enjoying a new songbook called "Pete the Cat". Pete wears white shoes that he loves. They change color depending on what he steps in. Pete is a cool cat, he does not mind one bit.
- We have been singing Frere Jacques in French and English. One child came to school singing it and now we all know the words.
-One day the geshem/rain made it so that the play yard was all wet and we played indoors instead. We played in the social hall with our large cardboard boxes, our tunnel and the kid's chairs that live in the social hall. We ran around and we also read some good books.
-Like most Monday's, we had Havdallah with Malka and the Nevonim in the sanctuary.
- Some of the kids showed interest in measuring their height again on our height chart that is still hanging on our wall from the beginning of the schoool year. We noticed that the children have grown taller!
-The children helped with the process of making a documentation board for Channukah. They helped decorate the poster with snips of paper or paper that they ripped into small pieces. We then put a frame around each photograph. When we return from our break, we plan to make more. The documentation board is now posted in the hallway outside of our kitah.
- We talked about how Anna will not be joining us on Friday because she will be flying to Israel. We talked about how Collin (who has been volunteering and subbing at our school since last year) will be teaching in the kitah with Ofra on Friday.
-We had a really pleasant time with Collin.
We wish you all a wonderful winter break.
L'hitraot for now.
Ofra and Anna
We are devoted to helping children learn socialization skills, building their self-confidence and teaching them the preliminary skills to explore and experience the world independently from their parents.
In addition, we seek to ignite a spark in each child to lay claim to her or his Jewish heritage and commit him or her to a lifetime passion for learning.
