Kofim Korners Oct.1,2012-Oct. 5,2012

Highlights of the past week:
We went out to look at the sukkah being built; and discussed where we are going to put the decorations we were making.  We also learned about the story of Jonah and the Whale.  The children strengthened their fine motor skills and creativity by creating beautiful decorations for the sukkah.

Coming Up Next Week:
We have another short week this week. No school Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday we will start working on our Simchat Torah flags and work in the garden so WEAR CLOTHES THAT CAN GET DIRTY BECAUSE WE WILL!!!! If any one would like to volunteer to help prepare the garden please let me know. Thursday and Friday we will start working on our unit on Fall trees and forest animals by making fall trees, acorns and squirrels.

Home Learning Opportunities:
