What a fun week we all had! Firstly we’d like to thank the Preschool at Ganon for inviting us to their Carnival! There were so many fun activities and games. The Gallery below is a highlight of both our OJCS Carnival and the Ganon Carnival where we thoroughly had a great time at all the different booths and activities prepared for us. We ended our week with our Pyjama Day where we all enjoyed delicious pancakes with chocolate chips and instead of Read to Self, we Read to our Stuffies! A great way to end our week of Ruach! There are lots of pics so please enjoy!
As well as March 21rst being Purim it is also World Down Awareness Day. One of the ways it is celebrated, is by wearing mismatched socks. If you wish to, and are able to adapt your Purim Costumes accordingly, please do so.
The Kindergarten class has been exploring the Rainforest. Ask us what kind of animals live in the rainforest, what the layers are in the rainforest, and some great songs and dances that we love. We are collecting all of our Rainforest Animals to send home after we complete our inquiry. The children are writing books, learning new vocabulary, and reading all kinds of books for their own interests.
In Math we’ve started to learn about Measurement. We’ve gone on a measurement hunt comparing things around the classroom that are shorter than, the same as, or longer than a straw, a popsicle stick, and a block. Look at us measuring and comparing our feet with our friends.
Here’s one of our fun Rainforest Dances we love to do!
Kindergarten is happily welcoming in the Month of Adar and the holiday of Purim. In K1 and K2, we have been busy all week learning new games, songs, crafts, the letters פ ף צ ץ and Purim related Hebrew vocabulary.
Our documenters are also the Shabbat Chazzanim and they are capturing the learning all week.
This week they were:
Lyla and Zachary in K1 and Gila and Jonas in K2.
Here are the weekly highlights according to our documentarians:
What a great day we had! A picture is worth 1000 words! Thanks so much to The Werier Fmily for providing a fun snack specially designed for 100 Day! The student’s painted “what we will look like when we’re 100” pictures with Morah Shira in art class. These are now hanging outside of their cubbies!
