Kitah ג Kindergarten, November 2-6, 2015
This week we continued learning the alef beis and kriah. We are progressing nicely! We met Pleasant Pessy this week and she taught us how to talk pleasantly and use the proper tone of voice. This weeks' parsha is parshas Chaya Sara in which we learned that Yitzchak and Rivkah got married. In their honour, we had a really fun mock wedding in school on Thursday! We danced and ate lunch all together and the kids really enjoyed it!
This week in Kindergarten we learned about the letter Rr. We cut it out, traced it, practiced writing it on our own, learned the sound Rr makes and made a big list of all the words we know that start with Rr. We also learned about the colour orange and learned a new song to help us to recognize it and remember how to spell it: O-R-A-N-G-E, orange! O-R-A-N-G-E, orange! Orange as a carrot, A pumpkin or a parrot, Orange, orange, orange! We have also been mixing colours this week. We used white rice and food colouring to make different colours of rice for sensory play. We used red, blue and yellow food colouring and mixed them to see what colours we could make. We also had a lot of fun using eye droppers to mix coloured water to see what colours we could make.
