Shalom Nachshonim Families,
We have had a very pleasant week involving lots of activities.
Flowers, Honey and Bees continued...
- We tasted different kinds of honey from different flowers. We also tasted pollen. We tried honey from the forest, honey from flowers near the coast and wildflower honey.
-Our Zinnia sprouts are growing larger as we continue to water them.
-We went on a trip on Thursday to the local community garden on Bancroft Street. We Saw Ofra's and Tobie's garden plots. We ate mulberries from the tree and fresh string beans. We got to see the beehives at the garden. One of them has a window to look inside. We saw the honeycomb and the bees working hard in there. After the community garden, we walked two Strawberry Creek Park and played at the playground. Todah Aba Michael and Aba Bruce for joining us.
- After our field trip when we had arrived at school, we looked closely at the honeycomb we have in a jar to see if it is the same as what we saw at the garden. We also a similar honeycomb in a picture in a book about bees and honey.
-We observe some flowers that Ofra brought in from her walk to school one morning and we placed them in a vase.
- We had an arts and crafts morning on Monday. We painted with tempera paints and watercolors.
-On Wednesday we put out puzzles, sequencing cards, and our "What's Wrong?" cards on the table
-We took two flat cardboard boxes and played with them outside. The children drew on them with chalk, poured water on them, and jumped on then.
-The Opposite Game at lunchtime continues!
-During our drama class with Cheryl, we read "Higher" and acted it out.
-The children played with cocoa mulch in the sensory table outside.
That is all for now. We look forward to another week with your children. Enjoy the long weekend.
