Hashavua ~ Nevonim
May 15, 2015 ~ Iyar 26, 5775
This week's highlights:
- The theme of opposites has emerged from a number of different events ..
- Discussing mixed messages, opposites, when say "You are my friend, you aren't my friend,"
- Studying nocturnal and diurnal animals, opposites, and their habitats after our trip to the Lawrence Hall of Science, and
- And talking about doing the opposite of what you were asked to do.
- With this theme running strong ...
- We read Mitz Petel, a wonderful Israeli children's tale and the subject of the June 7 puppet show at CNS, and found all the opposites in the story,
- We ate lunch in the morning and snack in the afternoon! Opposite of what we usually do!
- We played Mah Hahefech/What is the opposite? and came to find the children had a great deal of Hebrew vocabulary to describe the opposites they found.
- We did opposite art with dark and light, and
- We played the "silent and loud" game listening to the opposite sounds.
- Other activities this week included ...
- Tracing our bodies on large paper and decorating the figures,
- Celebrating Kaila's birthday with strawberries and cream - YUM!
- Reading Danny Loves a Holiday: Lag Ba'Omer, Cheesecake for Shavuot, and Wooden Sword in book club,
- Having a Pajama Day, and
- Planting green beans and harvesting our pea crop.
Next week we will engage in many Shavuot-related activities as we mark the end of the Omer period, the spring harvest, and the Giving of the Torah.
Shabbat Shalom U'Mevorach!
