As we mentioned in our previous post, SK has been busy busy learning all about Pesach and this was so evident this morning during our Model Seder with JK; we hope you’ll see the same at home for the real ones!! Check out the photos below to catch a glimpse of the fun we had and scroll past the pictures to find links to some of SK’s favourite Pesach songs…..
SK has had so much fun getting ready for Pesach!! From learning songs and the Mah Nishtana to putting together their very own Haggadot, from reading so many stories and making Seder plates with Miss Tashi, we have been truly blown away by all they have learned about this chag! This was so evident yesterday during our Model Seder and we hope you’ll see the same at home for the real ones. Along with JK, we spent yesterday afternoon celebrating with plastic locusts, styrofoam-ball hail, stickers as boils, jumping like frogs, darkness, crossing the Red Sea, and more. Check out the photos below to catch a glimpse of the fun we had…..
Wishing you and your families a Chag Pesach Sameach and a lovely break! We look forward to seeing everyone back at school on April 25!
I am so proud of the work, learning and enthusiasm of our Kindergarten students.
Not only did they blow us away during our model seders (as I’m sure they will at home for the real ones), but they have shown amazing growth in social skills during our Caught Being Kind initiative.
What does it mean to be caught being kind?
It is when students are noticed by their peers or a teacher doing what is right, helping a friend, being extra polite, being a leader, and going the extra mile to make someone else feel good.
Here in Kindergarten, we have been caught in many ways including helping zip our friends’ coats, giving compliments, helping to clean up after an activity, making cards, pictures, or necklaces for our classmates and teachers, following our classroom rules and showing exemplary behaviour.
Students were acknowledged both in the moment and at the end of the week with a special visit from Mrs. Gordon. She presented them with a golden heart and certificate of kindness.
This year KA will be having a Model Seder on Tuesday, March 23rd, and KB on Wednesday, March 24th. We will begin in the morning during our Judaics class. As it is a special event, students are welcome to come dressed up.
For the day of our Model Seder each student is asked to bring the following items (in addition to a regular snack/lunch):
1 hard-boiled egg (peeled and wrapped please)
1 or 2 small celery sticks
1 leaf of romaine lettuce
The remainder of the Seder ingredients, such as egg matzah, horseradish, NUT FREE charoset, and grape juice, will be provided.
*Should you have any concerns regarding food allergies, please provide your child with his/her own food.
