Parparim 1 12/18/17 – 12/22/17

In Jewish Studies we sang our favorite songs like the rainbow song and then we listened to the story called, ” A big quiet house.” We laughed during the story when we had to make animal noises representing the animals that lived in the house.

We are learning about the letter “M”. We sounded out words that have the “M” sound such as:  Ms. Melissa, Ms. MaryAnne, monkey, moon, mouse, map, milk, mop, moth, mail and mitten. As you can see, we thought of a lot of words that start with “M”. Aren’t we magnificent?

During Gardening with Ms. Heather we talked about sweet potatoes and how they are root vegetables.  Then we took sweet potatoes and placed them in a cup of water. Ms. Heather passed out googly eyes and paper mouths so we could turn our sweet potatoes into potato head people. We each filled a plastic container with water to place our potatoes in. We placed them by our class room window to watch how they will sprout roots. We can’t wait to see whose potato grows sprouts first. The race is on!

Question of the week: ” What do you want to do during winter break?”

Jeremy – I want to go to the beach and get cooled off in the water.

Alyssa – I want to play Legos with momma.

Lily – I want to go to the playground and swing with mommy.

Belle – I want to go to the beach with mommy and Henry and bury myself in the sand. I will put a towel over my eyes so sand won’t get in them.

Jack – I want to play with my toys and Lexi.

Lauren – I want to go on a giant swing at the park with mommy and daddy.

Ellen – i want to play the Sponge Bob game with mommy and Milly.

Do you know the muffin man? We do! Our Junior Chefs made yummy chocolate chip muffins on Wednesday. First Ms. Melissa went over the ingredients we needed for our muffins and the directions on how to make our muffins. We took out the big yellow bowl and poured in our chocolate chip mix. Then we added butter and eggs. We put our muscles to good use when we took turns stirring the batter. After it was all mixed up, we put the batter into muffin cups and baked them for fifteen minutes. During snack we devoured our muffins. Boy were they good!

Our Junior Artists made the squeakiest little mice on Wednesday out of paper and pom poms. We glued a big letter “M” on a piece of paper. Then we glued down ears, whiskers, eyes and we can’t forget the pom pom nose. They look so cute.  We have them hanging on our outside bulletin board. Come and see them before they scurry away.


In Science with Ms. Heather we talked about the four forces of flight; thrust, lift, drag and gravity. Then we took straws, paper clips and prices of paper to make hoop gliders.  Here is how we made them. We chose a small piece of paper and a large piece of paper and made each of them into a circle and attached them with a paper clip. Then we took a straw and attached it to the paper circles. Next came the flying of our gliders. We took turns throwing them down the hallway. We could not believe how far they went.

We are getting ready for winter. We have been coloring snowmen and snow flakes in our class room. We put on a black top hat just like a snowman would wear. Don’t we look adorable?


During Show-N-Tell we talked about: Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins wrestling figures, Timon and Pumbaa from the Lion King, Marshall from Paw Patrols, Rainbow Dash and Minnie Mouse, Roller skates and a baby doll.

Our Ema and Abba did the best job leading us in our prayers and songs for our Friday Shabbat.

A big hug to our Mystery Reader. We loved the books about Peppa Pig

It’s hard to believe the School year is almost half over!  We have enjoyed teaching your children and watching them grow! We are excited to start the New Year and have so many fun things planned.

Wishing you and your’s a very Happy and Safe New Year!
