Both last week and this week we spent some time on Friday doing a little "Passover cleaning." Last week we went on a search for chametz (bread products), which was really pieces of brown paper. The children took paper bags around and used a candle (unlit), a spoon and a feather to find the chametz. They put the pieces they found into the paper bag and then we got rid of the chametz!
This week we took it one step further and cleaned the room with feather dusters and spray bottles. The children really enjoyed the opportunity to get the classroom ready for Passover.
I am sorry that I am unable to really add any more information from this past week at The Gan. I spent most of the week taking care of my sick children. However, I was thrilled to be able to be back, even if it was for just one day before our break starts. The children came in and were very excited to tell me about things they did earlier in the week. It really sounds like they had a wonderful time doing activities with Morah Tzivie and learning more about Passover!
I hope all of our families have a great Passover. I look forward to seeing everyone back at The Gan on Wednesday, April 7th.
