What a super week filled with imagination!
We began by reviewing rhymes with games and poems.
We learned about punctuation and our sight word of the week was the.
We reviewed the rules for staying healthy and learned the spelling for yes and no by working in our Scholastic “Let’s Find Out” booklets.
We read the book The Rainbow Fish and used this as the starting point for a lesson about ways in which we can be a good friend.
We then wrote in our journals about being a good friend.
In science we learned about how bees make honey.
We read about bees and then worked on order of events worksheets to practice our number recognition and sequencing.
We learned about subtraction with apples…
You guessed it- ROSH HASHANA is on its way! We read Sammy the Spider’s First Rosh Hashana.
We had a special guest this week- Tommy from Shining Stars- a dramatic arts workshop. He worked with us on emotions and expressions!
In P.E. we played parachute games.
We worked on a class project…
Stay tuned to find out what it is… Hint: It has to do with Rosh Hashana.
In Jewish Studies, we read a story about apples and learned Rosh Hashana songs.
Our letter of the week was “O”.
We strengthened our fine motor skills by working on lacing and play dough projects…
As well as by cutting and pasting- and we added in some math as well by sorting shapes.
We had music and focused on our listening skills!
We created Thinking of You cards to be sent to people in the community who are at nursing homes and don’t have family to visit them! This makes each one of us a Mitzvah Star!
Our number of the week was 5.
Our Mystery Reader this week was Emma’s sister Chloe!
We celebrated Emma’s birthday with a class party!
Rafael and Emma led us as our Aba and Ema Shabbat!
This was our best week EVER… Until next week!
