Chicka Chicka Letters and Numbers


This week we read Chicka Chicka 1,2,3 and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. We discussed what is the same and different in both books. We took the opportunity to begin counting by 10s to 100 just like the book.

We also practiced writing all the letters in the alphabet.


We are using our fine motor skills to cut, paste, and match numbers to pictures.

Our letter of the week was “Z”. We talked about different words that begin with “Z” and practiced writing the letter.

In Jewish Studies, and in our class, we began learning about Chanukah- the symbols, history, customs, and traditions. We have begun making our Chanukah crafts… Stay tuned to find out what this dot paint art will turn into!

We learned how to play Dreidel which is an excellent opportunity to use our addition and subtraction skills.

Our Ema and Aba Shabbat- Lily Pop and Jordan- helped us enjoy the wonderful All School Shabbat celebration!


Next week our class will be rehearsing for our Chanukah Program which we will perform for you, as well as for the residents of River Garden Hebrew Home. We will be learning more about the Festival of Lights and will use our fine and gross motor, math and phonics skills, creativity, and imagination to celebrate and embrace this miraculous time of year!
