You Hoo News 9-24-12

Week of 9/24-28

It has been a magnificent week of preschool. The children have been having much fun making their LuLavs and Etrogs with Ms. Hanna.  They have also been strengthening their fine motor skills as they cut and paint the craft.  We concentrate on proper scissors and crayon holds and the children are making progress!  The craft will go home on Friday.  Ask your child to show you how to shake the lulav and etrog!

We have been talking about Sukkot, creating decorations to decorate at school and home, and learning the significance of Yom Kippur.

Today we worked on our word wall and learned how many different colors we can make with just red, blue, and yellow.


Today we made books about our story, “Mouse Paint”, and painted our Etrag.


Yom Kippur – “Hatimah Tovah”


Today we are going to make mouse finger puppets and finish our Sukkot decorations.
