Our preparation for Supper in the Sukkah…

We went to visit the Sukkah. We sat inside and touched the corn stalks that make up the roof.

   

We painted different colors on our class’s piece of a school wide art project.

     

At our school event, we painted our family pieces for the art project.

We helped pour and mix the ingredients for the apple cake for Supper in the Sukkah.

 

It’s Fall!

After enjoying a very warm and sunny summer, we’ve welcomed another season – Fall.

During this season everything around us is changing, especially the trees.

The days are getting shorter and colder.

This season brings to us many amazing objects, many of which are new to us. We have colorful leaves, round orange pumpkins, and different shaped squash.

 

But the most fun we had was playing with the leaves…

We collected the leaves from outside and brought them to our class.

Leaves in the fall season change color from green into red, orange, yellow or brown and fall from trees. When we played with them, they made nice “crunch,c runch” sounds.

We painted over leaves and then could see the outline when the leaf was peeled off the paper.

The Fall season is so much fun!

 

Our day in the classroom…

Our school environment has so many experiences and objects to spark our curiosity. Each day in our classroom brings us lots of fun and new opportunities.

We  practice how to share toys and space with our friends.

 

   

We are learning how to be gentle with our hands when we interact with our new younger friends…

 

We love to spend time outside!

 

We are starting to develop our language skills.We are interested in looking at the picture books on our own and we are able to turn the pages.

We love to be in motion!

We are getting more adept at moving around our classroom, from crawling, to cruising, to taking our first independent steps…

   

Every day we have new experiences, reach new milestones and get  to know our friends better, which helps us through the day with smiles on our face!

 

 

 

Rosh Hashanah is coming!

Soon, we are going to Celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

Last week, Morah introduced us to this holiday by showing to us objects relative to Rosh Hashanah such as an apple, a shofar, and a honey jar. We had so much fun touching these objects and playing with them!

Our first steps into Zimmer Preschool…

 

Our first week in preschool went by so quick ! We spent this time getting to know our new friends and discovering our classroom and the new toys around us. During these first few days. we were also to learning how to share classroom’s toys and play.

 

  .  

 

We were just enjoying the weather and spending time outside. Morah took us for a walk outside in our big stroller so we could see our new environment around the school building.

We are looking forward to a great year together!

Our little hands- amazing tools for exploring the world!

Our hands help us to recognize the amazing world around us. We use them to learn.

Our hands help us feed ourselves independently.

We use our hands to reach for toys which we are interested in playing with.

 

 

 

 

We can flip the pages in the books to learn their amazing stories..

We use our hands to reach out for our friends.

 

 

New year, new friends, new adventures in Infant’s class..

The first week of school went by so fast!

Itt was an amazing time, which we spent getting to know our new friends and exploring our classroom.

Every day, Morah took us for a walk outside in our big stroller so we could see our new environment around school building.

      

Next week, we are going to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the New Year. This week, Morah introduced us to this holiday by showing to us new objects such as an apple, a shofar, and a honey jar. Morah also read us books about Rosh Hashanah.

We were able even to touch these objects and play with them.

 

L’shanah Tovah from our Infant Class to all of You! Have a sweet new year!

 

 

Let’s do art !

We have been so busy for the past few days. Just like our older friends, we started preparation for the annual art show.

We were going to make our art by layering different colors of paint.

Morah gave us two canvases.

Our work started with painting the primary layer. Each of us got different color of paint to make a unique piece of art.

 

Everyone chose a different way of how to start. Some of us decided to use a paint brush….

  

 

… some of us preferred to use our little hands and fingers.

  

No matter what technique we used, we were amazed that our moves caused marks on our canvaces.

   

The next step was adding another layer of colors to our canvases by using different tools.

By using the car toy we made nice lines and patterns.

 

A pompom dipped in paint made round shapes.

 

We used even a ball to create circles on our art.

  

We were so excited to see that our movements can create art.

    

    

We were so proud of our work. We learned that you can make art by using many different things. You can create any picture by using any tool and imagination.

Look what we have created!

 

 

 

Getting Ready for our Purim Party

We have been getting ready for our school Purim party.

Every friend in our school made a special food gift called Mishloah Manot for another friend.

Together with our Morahs we decorated our special gift bags.

We used the paint with our hands and brushes to make our gift bags very colorful and unique.

   

 

When the bags were completely  dried, we helped Morahs  put food in the bags.

Our bags had two hamentashen (special cookies in a triangle shape) and pretzels.

    

At our school party, other friends give us a bag of Mishloach Manot that they made especially for us!  

We had so much fun listening to the music, shaking the graggers that we made, and being together with everyone at our party!

 

 

Purim is Coming

The holiday of Purim is coming! On Purim, one of the ways we celebrate is by shaking a GRAGGER. A gragger is a noisemaker.

We made our own graggers that we could use in our classroom and at our school Purim party later this month.

We had little plastic bottles and we put rocks, beads and little bells through the hole.

This helps us developed our hand and eye coordination.

After that Morah taped the top of bottle closed to keep all the pieces inside.

Then, we checked to see if our graggers were working. We shook  our graggers as strong as we could.
