Our first week back at school has been most exciting. It was nice to see everyone's friendly faces again.
Here are the highlights of our week in the kitah.
-We celebrated Menashe's third birthday on Monday! Menashe and his Ima Jenny brought in apples to share with us on his birthday and some of the children helped slice the apples.
-We learned a new song from Melita when she came to sing with us on Tuedsay called "Transportation What a Fascination" that we have been singing. The song suggests that we take various modes of transportation.
-We have two new song books currently on our shelf. We have been reading and singing "I Ain't Gonna Paint No More" and "Down By The Bay".
-It is no matter that our book "10 Shirim Rishonim"(first ten songs) has been on our bookshelf since September. We still use it nearly every day! Today we listened to the CD as we looked at the images in the book.
-We played with sticky foam on Monday and Tuesday.
-We made a fresh batch of playdough on Wednesday.
-We now have a version of "Goodnight Moon" that is gigantic in size. We read it a few times at circle time this week.
-The singing and dancing continues!
-The children have been crawling down the hallway while meowing as we make our way to the play yard. Next week we plan to pull out a few books about chatoolim/cats; we shall see what activities will follow if the interest grows.
