The year is flying by so fast. Hope everyone had a great Spring Break. Before the break we started our Passover Unit and will continue with this unit for the next 2-3 weeks. As always we review why we celebrate Passover. We talk about what it means to be a slave and how great it is to be a free person. Then we talk about how to celebrate,  for passover this includes the parts of the Seder Plate-the egg, parsely, bitter herb, charoset, Matzah, salt water, 4 cups of wine and the Haggadah. Also we teach the first part of the 4 questions.

Kindergarten Sunday 3/13

We have started our unit on Purim. We are learning all about how we celebrrate-dressing up in costume, eating Hamentashen, making noise with greggors when we hear Haman's name, reading the Megillah (the Story of Esther). We are also learing why we celebrate: Esther was a brave Jewish lady who saved the Jewish people from the evil plot of Haman.
