News from Pre-K Morah Sarah  

 September 18, 2020 

This week in pre-K we got ready for Rosh Hashanah!  We finished our honey dishes, picked pomegranates, and decorated apples.  The students really enjoyed using beads to trace or fill in our Rosh Hashana table shapes with glass beads.  In our sensory bin we had oatmeal, cinnamon and pretend apples for the children to explore with.  We did an apple tasting and charted which color apple we liked best.  Surprisingly it was almost even between the red and green apples!

 

During circle time we reviewed the Rosh Hashana customs, shofar sounds, and drew pictures of our requests from Hashem for Rosh Hashana.  We had a Rosh Hashana Picture hunt, where the students found different Holiday pictures hidden throughout the classroom.  We also talked about the custom of a fish head on Rosh Hashana and how it relates to us; we want to be like the head and not like the tail by making good choices for ourselves and not following others choices that may not be so good. 

 

Many of the children enjoyed adding water to our sand play this hot week!  Please make sure your child has a change of clothes or even two as we can get pretty messy in Pre-K .

 

Please send a water bottle with your child every day as we encourage them to drink water throughout the day.  Also as the day goes on some children’s masks get wet, please send in a spare mask that they can switch back and forth between throughout the day.  

 

Song of the week:

 

Rosh Hashana is the New Year

Rosh Hashana is finally here

Apples dipped in honey we do eat

We ask Hashem to make our New Year Sweet

 

Have a Shabbat Shalom and a happy, healthy, sweet New Year!!
