We had an amazing first week in Doobonim 2!  We finished the week with nice weather, which meant we were able to go on the playground!  Your little ones love to be outside, slide, swing and run around!

We also go on nature walks where we get to look at different trees and point out any ducks, geese, or turtles we might see along the way!

We are still learning about Winter this week and your littles have enjoyed fun projects like making snowflakes out of tortilla’s!  We went next door to work with our older 1-year-old friends which was a special treat for them:)  I cut the snowflakes out, but, they really enjoyed sprinkling the cinnamon and sugar AND eating them!

We are also learning a lot just playing in class!  Your littles are very interested in our peg board and are getting good at putting them in—yay for working on motor skills!  I also made some sensory bottles which they love to shake and look at, trying to figure out what’s going on in them…

We celebrated TuB’Shevat on Wednesday!  This is a Jewish holiday, Birthday of the Trees.  We have spent the last several Jewish Studies with Morah Miriam and Morah Rachel, talking and singing fun songs about the importance of trees and all they provide for us!  We even had Ilene from PJ Library come and read a story about trees and bring in a flower-pot for your littles to decorate…complete with a packet of sunflower seeds from Israel.  Plant these with your children and take pictures of the different stages of growth!  We would love to have pictures to put on a bulletin board:)  Print them out or email them to me:  doobonim2@dubowpreschool.org

Thank you for everything!  Here’s a few silly pictures of your sweet little ones:)

Ms. Billie
