Dear Families,

Today was a very high energy day!  Here’s what we did:

*We discussed the holiday of Rosh Hashanah through our five senses.  Students each got to pick an item and tell which senses we use when we experience each item.  We read stories to go along with the holiday

*We ate challh, apples and honey for snack.  The students tried three different kinds of apples and voted on a graph.  Over half of the class prefers green apple. Red came in second and yellow in third.

*We learned the letter Resh and played letter Twister.  Check out the photos in our album for some great shots!

*Your child should have brought home an apple and honey bracha mat.  They really enjoyed stamping apples in paint!  Please use this mat if/when you dip your Rosh Hashanah apples in honey.

*The children got a chance to try blowing different types of Shofars.  Some of these kids are future trumpet players!!!  I also had a noisemaker that looked like a shofar, for those that couldn’t get a sound out of a real shofar.  There are some great pictures of this event as well!


We will have library in two weeks.  Thank you for bringing books back so timely this week!

*I wish you and your family a very Happy and Healthy New Year.  L’Shana Tova!

If at any time you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact me!
