Wow have we been busy! We’ve been busy having so much fun that we forgot to write about all we’ve been doing!
High Holidays have come and gone but we had fun learning about Rosh Hashanah, Sukkot and Yom Kippur, and now we are preparing for our Thanksgiving program! Time truly does fly when we’re having fun!
For Rosh Hashanah we learned a Happy New year song that we loved so much we even kept singing it after Rosh Hashanah had passed! For Sukkot we made fruit collages and colored paper fruit to hang in the Sukkah outside. Morah Miriam even read us a story in the Sukkah! It sure was fun. For Yom Kippur we made Israeli flags and a decorated our own paper Torah.
We’ve enjoyed our science and gardening classes too. For Science Ms Heather always has a new theme of the day for us. Last week it was outer space! We got to play with the sun (yellow balloons), and imagine blasting off in a rocket in a pretend rocket frame. The Science room was even lit by only an indoor sun (foil wrapped with light strings) hanging from the ceiling! In gardening Ms Heather has taught us how to pull weeds, plant seeds, and we learned how seeds travel to get planted in new places nature. We’ve loved seeing the plants that we planted the seeds for growing in our own Doobonim garden! Learning is so much fun!
We’ve had Music with Ms Emily too and we LOVE those Shakey Eggs and scarves. Our favorite song is “We are the Dinosaurs”. At the end of class Ms Emily always lets us tap her bongo drums. We very much enjoy dancing, singing and making music in her class!
Next week is out family Thanksgiving celebration! We’ve been working so hard to get everything ready on time, but we are looking forward to sharing this day with our families. Hope to see you there!
