Parparim 1 9/7/15 – 9/11/15

In Jewish Studies we sang Rosh Hashanah songs and had fun playing pretend shofars. We sounded great!


In P.E. with Ms. Alyse we played a matching game with colored popsicle sticks. We each chose a popsicle stick and then had to run over to a huge pile of popsicle sticks and find our matching color. It was so much fun when we found our matching popsicle stick, we only wished their was a yummy popsicle attached to our stick!

In class we are talking about Creation. We learned how Hashem created our Earth in just seven days. Wow! We hung up the first three days in our class room. Here they are:

  1. On the first day, Hashem called the light day and the darkness night.
  2. On the second day, Hashem made the heavens and the Earth.
  3. On the third day Hashem made the water, trees and grass.

We loved having our dads come in for Apples with Abba on Wednesday. Everyone enjoyed eating our yummy muffins, apples and honey and making a beautiful placemat using paints and apple slices. The best part was showing our dads all of the toys in our class room. They really liked our pirate patches, our colorful links, books and puzzles. Thanks to our wonderful dads for helping us celebrate Rosh Hashanah and to Rabbi Tillman for visiting our class room.

During Science with Ms. Amanda, we talked about our Earth’s birthday. We each picked out a rock to represent the Earth’s core. Then we took red wool and wrapped up our rock. The red wool represents Earth’s hot outer core. We then wet our wool and washed it with soap. After that we took white wool to represent the Earth’s mantle. We washed the wool again with soap and water. After that we took blue and green wool to represent the Earth’s outer core and for Earth’s water and grass. Ms. Amanda is going to take our creations home and wash them in the washing machine. This will help our Earth stay in a ball. We can’t wait to show you our beautiful world!

We read a book about blowing the shofar and then took out watercolors so we could paint our own shofars. They turned out beautiful and we can’t wait to blow them for you.

Our class did a bubbly experiment on Thursday when we made individual volcanos. We each got a paper plate and a plastic cup. We added vinegar to our cup with a few drops of food coloring. We then added a few spoonfuls of baking soda. As quick as a wink, our volcanos started erupting over our cups into our paper plate. Zachary exclaimed that our experiment was awesome and everybody wanted to do it again.
