We spent time in the synagogue during Jewish Studies, and learned about the creation of the earth. The children made colored flags which they proudly held while we marched around 7 times, representing the 7 days of Bereshit.

The children have enjoyed, to say the least, using shaving cream on the tables to practice letter writing! They love to squish it between their fingers, smooth it on the table top and use their fingers to draw and write. It’s a memorable way to practice writing. We have been focusing on the letters U, W, M, N, T and R most recently, as we study a certain cluster of letters for a period of time based on their familiarity with the letters.
