Last week of VPK!

Dear Tzeeporim families:

This week is the penultimate week of VPK for your littles! We miss them already, and truly adore each and every one of your babies.

Last week we spelled small words in shaving cream on the tables, organized our classroom, sang songs in preparation of the Moving Up ceremony, and celebrated Shavuot during the Bikkurim festival.

We also took a special tour to the Kindergarten classroom! Ms. Yegelwel introduced the children to the Smart Board and they loved it! We were proud of their responsible behavior:)IMG_2072 IMG_2074 IMG_2075 IMG_2076 IMG_2077 IMG_2079 IMG_2081 IMG_2083 IMG_2085 IMG_2089 IMG_2090 IMG_2094

This week the children practiced their songs a lot! They are getting really good at timing, using their projection voices, and lining up in the correct order.

We are also wrapping up lots of projects, including writing sheets, keepsakes, and other games to send home. It’s sad how quickly the year goes by!

On Friday, we celebrated our very last Shabbat together for the year! It was bittersweet. Speaking of sweet, we also celebrated Zachary Setzer’s 5th birthday in the garden. His mother brought supplies for a sundae party for both classes! Thank you, Zachary’s mom!

After that, Arseniy’s dad came to “school us” on the rules of chess. He introduced the game, the pieces, their functions, and the goal: to capture the opponent’s king. The girls liked to hear that the queen was more powerful than the king. This was a very special visit that the children throughly enjoyed- thank you, Arseniy’s dad!
