Winter- Part 1

Baby it’s cold outside!! This week was perfect for our Winter theme- which will last 2 weeks.

We began the week by making a snowman with the letters in our name. IMG_0753 IMG_0757 IMG_0759 IMG_0760 IMG_2525IMG_2526IMG_2527IMG_2528IMG_2529IMG_0873IMG_0874IMG_0875IMG_0876IMG_0877IMG_2621IMG_2622IMG_2623IMG_2624IMG_2625IMG_2626IMG_2627IMG_2628IMG_2629IMG_2630IMG_2620


In Jewish Studies we learned about Tu B’Shvat. We were seeds, sprouts and watered our friends who grew into trees!

We read books about winter and snow.


We skied- and jumped moguls! We snowboarded- both regular and goofy!

We dressed warmly and played outside in the chilly weather and talked about how different it felt from a few weeks ago. Some of our friends had hats, scarves and gloves too!

We built igloos out of blocks.

We learned about the artist Vincent van Gogh and his paintings that looked like they were moving because of his swirly strokes. In ode to his painting “Starry Night” we painted “Snowy Night”. Our work will be on display in the school’s gallery.

We had a special trip to the Day School to work on tree pictures with our 4th and 5th grade Buddies!IMG_0963 IMG_0969 IMG_0971 IMG_0974 IMG_0978 IMG_0981 IMG_0983 IMG_0989 IMG_0990 IMG_0997 IMG_0998 IMG_1004 IMG_1010 IMG_1012

We made snow pictures and manipulated the chalk to make all different effects. 

We had pajama days!

This has been the best week ever… until next week!

Please remember there is no school on Monday, January 18th in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Please note, unless it is raining or wet, our class does go outside for recess so please provide the appropriate clothing for the weather.

Also, I am in the midst of conducting assessments and will forward the results to you in the next few weeks.

Should you ever have any questions or concerns about your child, please never hesitate to contact me!

PS- My apologies that last week’s blog did not go out due to some technical difficulties- so this week you get two for the price of one!
