Our week started off with yet another beautiful Havdalah service. Throughout the week, we have continued to discuss and learn about Purim. We have started to make the costumes for each child of which Purim character they want to dress up as. Your children got to paint their own crowns and decorate them with glitter and color their own Purim masks! Next week we will have an entire week of dress up (look below for all the details). Your children have been hard at work practicing what our rocket ship is going to look and how they want to build it. We will be starting to paint, build and decorate it soon!
We have introduced a new topic and idea in our room. CHECK YOUR ENGINES!! We are in the process of every child making their own check your engine board. The concept is for them to see how their body is feeling and whether they have a lot of energy, in the middle or low and then to decide where they should be at depending on the activity. For example, when we go outside, we want their engines to be high, when we are at circle time, we want them “just right” or in between that and the low energy since it is a time to sit quietly and pay attention and when we are at rest time are engines are running low because our body needs to rest. Your children have been extremely excited about making their own engines and it has been a very positive discussion within our classroom. Stay tuned for the final products to be displayed in our room, as we will be transforming our library into a “check your engine” station!
Thank you to Nixon and his family for spending such a special Shabbat with us.
