Parparim 1 10/30/17-11/3/17

In Jewish Studies we listened to the story of Rebecca who was married to Isaac. She was very kind to animals and people.

Our letter of the week is “G”.  We sounded out a lot of words that start with the “G” sound: garden, gather, goat, gum, globe, giant, game, green, grapes, giraffe, gummy bears, grow, grand ma, grand father, grow and God.

Our Junior Artists Painted the prettiest fall leaves of yellow, red and orange using paint and glitter. We are going to change them in our classroom windows to get us in the fall spirit.

During Gardening with Ms. Heather we made bird feeders. We each took a pine cone and spread solid crisco all over it using a popsicle stick. Then we put bird seed in a container and rolled our pine cones back and forth so the seeds would stick. We tied a string around the top of it, so we can tie it to a tree when we get home so we can watch the birds enjoy it.

We made giraffes out of paper and glue. We used our fine motor skills when we tore brown paper for our giraffes spots and when we used glue sticks to glue out letter “G” down on paper.



Our Junior Chefs made delicious grilled cinnamon toast on Thursday. First we spread softened butter on a piece of bread. Then we mixed sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and sprinkled it on top of the bread. Next we melted butter in an electric skillet and placed our slices of bread in it. We grilled the bread for a minute and then flipped it over on the other side. We loved the way our room smelled from the cinnamon and really loved the way our grilled toast tasted. What great chefs we are.

During Music with Ms. Emily we got silly with scarves and then listened to the story I got the rhythm by Connie Schofield-Morrison. Then we stomped out the beat to Ms. Emily’s bongo drums.

In Science with Ms. Heather we learned about pulleys. We walked around different stations where different types of pulleys were set up. We loved the pulley where we put plastic animals in a container and then pulled the string to move the container across the room. We also loved using our muscles to lift a full juice container up in the air by pulling on a stick attached to a pulley. We learned that machines make work easier for people.

During Show-N-Tell we talked about: Cat Boy figurine, A giraffe and Elmo, A Thanksgiving turkey, Yummy grapes, Oranges in a sparkly box and A big green spider.

Our Ema and Abba did a wonderful job leading our class to Shabbat and helping us with our prayers.

A big hug to our Mystery Reader. We loved the story about a Shabbat dinosaur.
