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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
