Hashavua ~ Nevonim
1 May, 2015 ~ Iyar 12, Omer 27
This was a very full week, as we extended our interest in and exploration of animal homes from last week:
- We looked at birds nests closely,
- We searched for animals and their homes in our neighborhood and found:
- a spider web,
- a cocoon,
- a bee,
- an ant,
- a beetle,
- a spider,
- and a fly.
We examined sea animal dwellings!
ew words: Yahm-sea. Shablul -slug. Tzadaf - shell.
We built bird feeders.
This involved designing and creating, and Nevonim came up with 5 separate ways of creating these feeders!
As we continue to appreciate the outdoors and the warm weather, we drew our yard ideas for
our new outdoor classroom!
We also engaged in water and mud play
with lots of splashing.
We also learned about
the mitzvahin the Torah portion of Kedoshim
of making sure that people
who are blind are safe. We looked at Judy's supplies from when she taught the blind, including a long white cane, special glasses, a blindfold, and photos from her training.
We heard stories about people who use these canes to walk and be safe.
