Creating Mount Sinai using paint and fluff paint. At the beginning we used out brushes and then we began experimenting and experiencing and creating our hands!
Happy Brithday Amanda! It's always fun preparing for one our friend's birthday celebrations. We enjoy baking special treats, help setting up, & anticipate the special activities.
Amanda's Mom reading her favorite book to us! Thank you!
We wanted to really reenact the story of lea ving Egypt so first Sammy helped Morah Chaya paint the Red Sea.
Next, we mixed colors to make new ones. We have been using learning our colors in Hebrew!
And then, we took turns painting our feet and leaving Egypt!
Come by the classroom to check it out!
During the week, we have been exploring what yeast does in baking. How it can make something Chometz or not.
First we made Matzah with just flour and water. It didn't rise! It turned into a flat cracker-like bread.
When the Jews were leaving Egypt, they were so excited to leave that they took the dough they were making on their backs and left. The hot desert sun baked it instantly into a flat cracker like bread called Matzah.
We decided to experiment and see if the sun would bake the Matzah that we put outside.
Then, in honor of Shabbat, we made Challah from scratch and noticed that it turned out nice and fluffy because of the yeast.
After looking at everything in the classroom, Aiden decided to examine Amanda with the magnifying glass.
Her eyes became very big!
We are busy cleaning our room for Pesach. We're taking out all the Chometz (leavened foods), washing the dishes, washing the table and vacuuming.
All the Chometz we removed from the classroom.
We would like to welcome Jordan Epstein to our classroom! We are so excited to have her with us!

On Monday, Shushan Purim, we turk tuns doing the red carpet walk to show off our great costumes!
As a class, we have come up with 4 basic classroom values.
We are becoming familiar with the letter P - for Purim!
Aiden drew a P with chalk.

It is customary to make a lot of noise, when we hear the name Haman.
This week, we have been focusing on sound.
We made noise makers with different materials and compared their sounds.
We noticed, the soft materials didn't make a noise while the harder ones did.
The black beans in the tall bottle made a little bit of a different sound than the beans in the little jar. Even though they were the same beans!
We had fun jumping in the bubble wrap when we heard the name Haman!
