I hope everyone had a delightful winter break.

It has been a great first week back. A good sign that the class is coming together and the children are forming a community is the abundance of giggles, high fives and smiles.

The children have jumped right back into the classroom routine and are engaged and active.

The children are doing a good job washing their hands first thing when they come into the classroom. We have altered the classic “ABC” song to help them wash their hands long enough to be “germ free." Ask them to share it with you.

We had the honor of celebrating 2 of our friend’s birthdays.

Our new 3 year olds: Kian and Noah

Next week we will begin learning about Tu B’Sheva, the "New Year for Trees" celebrated on the Jewish calendar. We will explore the growth and development of trees, as well as growing some plants of our own.

A few reminders:

· warm coats, if it is not raining we do try to play outside for a bit each day

· a few coins for tzedakah

· if you have not already scheduled a time to meet with me, I am happy to meet after school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, or in the evenings on Tuesday or Thursday – I look forward to chatting with you about your child/ren.
