Grade K – Gan Class Update 12-11-16

Posted on December 12, 2016

Hello Gan Class Families!

Today we painted!  We did a lot of painting…..

Before the painting started we met with Cantor Ken in the Sanctuary for Tefillah.  Students were excited to learn that Hanukkah is in just a few weeks as we began to practice the blessings and some holiday songs. 

Next it was time to work on our whole school Birkot HaShachar project.  In November we started the project by thinking about things that we are thankful for each day and making a handprint in glue on one of the panels that will outline some of the visual representations of the prayers that were made by the older students.  Today we got to paint those panels teal. They will be washed and then sewn together with the other panels to create a piece of art we can’t wait for you to see.

Next we painted our very own dreidels.  They were very colorful and students got to practice making the letters nun, gimel, hay and shin.  Next week we will explore the holiday of Hanukkah as well as enjoy some celebrations!

Lastly, we painted the kippot we made handprints on during our last class.  Students were very creative and when we wash the paint off, each kippah will have the students’ handprint on it!

It was a messy and fun day!

Next week we will not be doing any painting.  We will discover new things about Hanukkah and we will get to learn a new letter together too!

Have a wonderful week!
