Sensory table and art fun!

24 Feb

We hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend! It was so nice to see the Chickadees again on Tuesday, we missed them! We have had a great week. We’ve begun to talk to the Chickadees about Purim and they are very excited about their costumes and the Purim Carnival (on March 10th). We are really looking forward to doing more Purim activities and telling the story of Esther in the coming weeks.

This week we put dirt in the sensory table. It was really fun to watch the Chickadees explore the dirt in different ways. They poured, patted, dug and scooped. There were also snakes, bugs, and reptiles buried in the dirt. The Chickadees found these animals with such excitement! They became a great source of imaginative play throughout the week.

As always, the Chickadees did a lot of art this week! They are such creative artists and it impresses us how focused they are. They are very proud of their finished works and are often very excited to put their creations in their backpacks. This week we did painting (with fingers and brushes), glue collages, and coloring.

We love having library on Tuesday’s. It is a special time when Morah Stella reads us new books and the Chickadees are attentive listeners. The Chickadees also enjoy picking out books of their own to check out and bring to the classroom. These books are read repeatedly through out the week. We are so lucky to have such a great library to visit, we always come back with a diverse selection of books for our classroom for the week!

The Chickadees had a lot of fun in My Gym this week! Moreh Ryan brought us a tumbling roll and the Chickadees were so excited to try it. The had so much fun rolling forwards and backwards, balancing, and rolling inside the tube! This was a great opportunity to practice taking turns and being patient. There was a lot of laughter in My Gym this week! We love seeing the Chickadees engage with Moreh Ryan and try new things.

The Chickadees had a fantastic week! We are a happy class full of readers, builders, chefs, princesses, and loving and caring friends.
