12 Adar, 5773
The past couple of weeks have been short, yet very exciting as we prepared for Purim. Here are the highlights of what went on in the kitah the last two weeks.
First of all, we would like to mention that we now have two new faces in our kitah! We are happy to welcome Dvir and Izzy into our community!
-We have been telling the story of Purim with the use of our finger puppets.
-We brought down the puppet theater from Lauren's office and we have been playing with our puppets.
-We have been singing lots of Purim songs in Hebrew.
-We made groggers by taping two paper cups together and filling the space with plastic beads.
-We have been reading Purim books
-The animal masks that we pulled out of dress up bin are a big hit.
-The Nevonim children prepared some cookie dough for us and we made Hamentaschen for Purim.
-This Friday, we had a Purim parade right before pretend Shabbat. Then we had they pleasure of hearing Liora, Asher's Ima, share with us her version of the Purim story.
-Last week we had Caitlin in the classroom a couple of days when Anna was out. It was nice to have her company those couple of days.
-Last week, some of our friends from the Nevonim kitah came to join us for snack and music with Melita.
-Last week we took the easel outside and the children used wet wipes to get it clean.
-This week, we noticed that the carrots we planted a few weeks ago finally came up!
-We have been enjoying the daffodils that have bloomed in our play yard.
-Along with all of that, we continue to take care of our tzmachim/plants that are on our window sill as well as practicing Tzaar Ba'alei chaim/ the mitzva of taking care of living creatures. We enjoy picking a name everyday to see who will be feeding our guinea pigs and who will be changing their water.
We hope everyone has a pleasant weekend.
Ofra and Anna
