Continuing our sea creatures interest, this week we turned the blue rug to an ocean, scattering sea shells and sea creatures around our boat
We played with play dough and cut ribbon
We made shapes with Geo- boards and rubber bands, and yarn
We made chalk pastel art
We got the face paint and decorated our faces and bodies. Then we read the song-book "Ain't Gonna Paint No More"
We planted snow peas and corn- our corn experiment from last week succeeded and our dried heirloom kernels sprouted!
We talked about Abraham and Sarah and the three visitors they had, who turned out to be angels. They promised Sarah that she will have a baby next year, when she is 100 years old. Sarah laughed and that is why her son's name is Issac ("Itzhak", in Hebrew, means "will laugh"). We also talked about welcoming guests and caring for them, and how much fun it is.
Our smaller group of older children that go upstairs at rest time made pom poms with yarn
The children helped Colin fix the table and a few other items in the Kitah. We are talking about the toys in the Kitah and the proper way to use them and care for them, showing kavod/respect for our property .
Continuing the topic of chesed/loving kindness and adding community/kehilah, Colin has been going over all the times he noticed helping hands and team work during the day during lunch time. The kids enjoy feeling seen and acknowledged.
We sang the song "Yalda Achat VeMitria Achat" (One girl and one umbrella- ילדה אחת ומטרייה אחת)
Teacher Krissy and her belly came to visit us, and we sang quiet songs for her yet to be born baby
We had a goodbye snack for Ella Maoz, who moved on to Bridge-K at Tehiya, and we wish her all the best.
We welcomed a new friend, Ayla (עילא), and she fit right in! We are so happy to have you!
See you all on Monday
Anna, Colin and Angelina
