Parparim 1 1/8/18 – 1/12/18

Welcome back. We missed everyone so much. We are excited to welcome two new friends to our class. Everyone has been so helpful and friendly to our new friends in showing them our classroom toys and books.

In Jewish Studies we are talking about T Bu’Shevat, which is the birthday of the trees. We sang songs about an apple and almond tree.

We are learning about the letter “N”. We took turns sounding out the “N” sound and came up with the following “N” words: Nate, nest, nice, neck, nose, nap, Nemo, net and nut.

Do you want to build a snowman? We do! Our class made the cutest snowmen out of paper and paint. Here’s how we did it. First we glued on white paper for our snowman. Then we glued on an orange piece of paper for his nose. We drew on a polka dot mouth and then took white paint to make snow falling from the sky.

“N” is for noodles. On Wednesday we talked and looked at rigatoni, lasagne, cavatappi, giant shells, and bow ties noodles by comparing their sizes, shapes and texture. The best part was eating the yummy buttery cavatappi noodles. We loved them!


Rain. Rain .Go away. On the playground, we want to play. We had the best time playing soccer, eating pretend ice cream, running and catching balls in one of our school hallways.



Our Junior Artists made beautiful night time pictures using paper, glue and shiny stars for the letter “N”. We displayed them on our outside bulletin board. Come and take a look at our masterpieces.

During Science with Ms. Heather we talked about the sense of touch. She passed around trays with different objects that were smooth, bumpy, soft and rough. Then Ms. Heather brought out Henry the hungry monster who swallowed up objects in her house. She asked us to reach into his mouth and reach around for an object. When we found something, we had to describe how it felt and then try to guess what the object was. Ms. Heather said we were too smart because we guessed all of the objects.

During Show-N-Tell we talked about: A picture of little brother Nate, A necklace and an ice nest, Plastic wrestlers Papa Shango and the Ultimate Warrior, A huge crane, A guitar, Plastic Stuart Minion, A noisy truck book and magnetic tiles.

Our Ema and Abba did a fantastic job at Shabbat leading our class in songs and prayers.

A big hug to our Mystery Reader. We loved the Daniel the Tiger stories.
