From the look of it the kids didn't know it was the last week of school.
We harvested our many mitzvahs from our apple tree,
Maya: I have too many.
Morah Katie: I think you have a lot, I don't think you can have too many mitzvahs.
Maya: Yeah I have a lot.
We took care of our garden and played hard on the playground.
Judah began his year with the geo-pattern shapes,
so why not end the year by trying to match all the pattern cards with his friends.
The classroom was busy with creativity and play.
Abby: Thanks for coming to Shabbat Sadie.
Sadie: I say the blessing Böruch atöh adonöy.
Augie: I'm going to write a letter to a friend, I think to Judah.
Abram: I'm making bookmarks.
Jade: I am making a big painting with all the colors.
Olivia, Maya and Augie created a house and played make believe.
Lochlan discovered the bead bar box for the first time and enjoyed exploring with them.
Asher, Emily and Jade made good use of the collage materials.
Evan turned 5.
It has been another wonderful year.
I am grateful to have spent 172 days with this amazing group of children. I asked them what they had learned this year,
I learned the new word "loveful," which I am for each of them.
Each day they cause me to smile and strive to be a better person.
Thank you for sharing your children with me.
Have a fun and active summer!
