TZEEPORIM 1 Week of September 24, 2012

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WEEK:  What another amazing, busy and exciting week of preschool!  We had fun reading Mouse Paint.  After the book, we made our own class book of favorite colors.   We put all our names on the word wall and we continue to work on letters and the sounds they make.  We started something new on Fridays.  It is called MATH BASKET FRIDAYS!  There are eight different math baskets.  They contain different hands-on math activities. The children are paired with another student and they work on a specific basket for ten minutes.  We then rotate to a new basket for another ten minutes.  This will take four weeks to complete and then we will start over again with more challenging materials.  Ask your child about it.  Check out some pictures below.

NEXT WEEK:  We will be reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin.  We will be doing many activities related to the story.  If you have any ABC books, you may send them in.

We will be taking our first field trip.  We will be visiting a number of sukkot in the area. Thank you to the parents who have volunteered to drive.  If you have not sent in your child’s permission slip, please do so tomorrow.

Our seeds have grown!  We will be transplanting them into our garden.  On Friday, we will be celebrating Simchat Torah in the sanctuary.

REMINDERS:  Aba and Ema are 9/28 Aiden & Brooke.  10/5 are Andrew & Ella.
