Happy Friday! We’ve had a very busy week counting down the days until Pesach comes. This week was filled with activities that followed this theme. The most important thing we did this week was finish our beautiful Seder Boxes. This has truly been an amazing project. For our Seder Box the students: decorated their Matzah Covers with tissue paper and sprayed water on it (great fine motor activity),  added stickers to their boxes, decorated their salt water bowls with special teacher markers (sharpies), and collages Eliyahu cups; we were sure busy!  We finished up our Seder box and it should be coming home on Monday!  The kids are very excited to show you would they have been working so hard on these past few weeks!

Here is the Seder Steps song we have been practicing (ask your child to show you the motions too!). It’s amazing to hear it being sung around the classroom through the day:

Kadesh, Urchatz, Karpas, Yachatz, Maggid, Rachtzah, Motzei-Matzah – crunch crunch, Marror, Korach, Shulchan Orach, Tzafon, Berach, Hallel, Nirtzah 

Now with the warmer weather please make sure your child has a COMPLETE change of clothing so they can join us in water play.  We do have a few extra sets of clothing but not enough to accommodate the amount of children who do not have spare clothes so we will not allow your child to do the water activities if they do not have dry clothes to change in to. 

When we return from break, you will notice Mr. Mendy missing. He will be out of our classroom for a few weeks. Due to this we will not be allowing your child to join us on a day they are not registered for or extend a half day into a full day. We are sorry for the inconvenience but we are attempting to make this transition easiest on everyone. 

A note from Ms. Emily:

I would like to thank everyone for the beautiful Bridal Shower I was surprised with. I am so very touched by the generosity and love I was shown. I was sure surprised! I am so thankful to have such an amazing school family behind me. Thank you a million times over. 

Shabbat Shalom,

Ms. Emily and Morah Sarah
