13 Shvat, 5774
Shalom Nachshonim Families,
It has been a very smooth transition back to school after the break. We are happy to welcome Ariella to the Nachshonim community! We also celebrated a birthday last week for Lilah who is now 3!
Here are the highlights of last weeks activities.
Tu B'Shvat Activities
-We are preparing for the chag/holiday of Tu B'Shvat. We have been reading a lot of books about planting and trees. We have two in particular that we really like about how a plant or a tree grows from a seed. "The Carrot Seed" and a Hebrew song book about Doda Tova/ Aunt Tova and how she places seeds in her hats that become fruit trees.
-Last week we began planting parsley seeds in the planter box outside.
-We are singing songs about trees and Tu B'shvat
-At circle time we sang "Happy Birthday" to the trees
-Tobie brought some new puppets for the children. She has also brought us some very fancy hats.
-We continued to hang our paintings on the wall.
-We made and played with ooblek. A mix of cornstarch with water.
-We were happy to welcome back Melita and Menachem to the kitah to share music with us.
-We now have binoculars in the science area.
We are looking forward to sharing more with you.
Ofra and Anna
