Parparim 1 9/18/17 – 9/22/17

Last Friday during Show-N-Tell we talked about: Stuffed bunny rabbit, A green ball, A Dora the Explorer backpack, Three baby dolls, Trucks, A mountain dog, Pictures of me and my baby brother.

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


Our Emas and Abba did a fantastic job this week getting us ready for our Friday Shabbat. It was so nice to sing and eat challah with our family members.

Our Junior Artists are getting ready for Rosh Hashanah. We made beautiful apple trees and Rosh Hashanah cards for our parents. We can’t wait for you to see them.


In Jewish Studies on Monday, we sang songs about apples and honey to get us in the spirit of Rosh Hashanah. We also talked about Tashlich in which we say we are sorry for not being kind to our friends. We took a  walk out to the pond and threw challah in it, so we can start the New Year clean.

We are learning about the letter “C” this week and next. We sounded out words that start with the letter “C’ such as: car, clown, cookie, cat, circus, carrot, cup, and cloud.

We read a book about the circus and then took silly pictures using circus photo   props. Don’t we look cute? We also got to dress like a clown wearing the biggest shoes we have ever seen, a red nose and a tall hat.  aren’t we adorable?


We used sticks to keep the beat during Music with Ms. Emily. We then took scarves and danced around like fish. Dancing is so much fun and we love dancing our sillies out. Ms. Emily gave us a web site to order our very own sticks. We would love to have one maybe as a Haukkah present. Here is the web site

Our P.T.A. provided our class with apples and honey to help celebrate Rosh Hashanah. We loved the gooey honey on our apples. They were delicious. We plan on eating lots of apples and honey during Rosh Hashanah.




In Gardening with Ms. Heather we talked about pollution and what goes down our storm drains into our rivers and lakes. We each took turns pouring an example of pollution into a clear bin of water. Some of the things we put into the clean water were soap from when we wash our cars, trash and maple syrup that represented motor oil. We were amazed how quickly our clean water turned into dirty water. Yuck! Ms. Heather also explained how rain occurs when the sun evaporates water from a lake and a cloud gets full of water. The cloud gets so full that it bursts in the form of rain. We then took water droppers and a cup of water and made our own rain clouds. We used an empty mason jar covered with a paper towel. We slowly added drops of water to the paper towel. Once the paper towel got full, it started dripping into the empty jar. It was so neat to see how water dripped out of our paper towel cloud.

Our Junior Chefs were busy making adorable clowns out of pancakes, raspberries, blueberries and whipped cream. We took a pancake and used the fruit to make a clown face. Then we squirted out whipped cream for the clown’s hair and then used sprinkles to make the hair even sillier. The best part was licking the whipped cream off of the plate and eating the clown’s nose. We never knew a clown could taste so yummy.

We made a lot of noise in our room on Wednesday when we made shofars and marched around the room playing them. We can’t wait to play a song for our moms and dads. They are going to love it!
