Morah Pam invites you to sing along to some of our favorite songs. Enjoy!

Under the Sea:  Use large coloring paper to draw with crayons seascapes and fish. Don't forget coral and underwater foliage. Use light water colors to swish over the crayon pictures and see the ocean-like  contrast between the wax crayons and water color media. Dry and mount on a color paper sheet underneath for a makeshift frame.  Or recycle colored cellophane over the entire creation for an underwater effect.

Dramatic Play
Take some blankets to the playroom or basement or space where you might be able to leave the structures up.  Gather some pillows, flashlights and books and pitch some tents and connecting structures for quiet time or family time with the blankets and pillows.

Recyle and Make a Mitvah
If you started cleaning out closets and can't wait til the spring rummage sale, our friends at the Boys and Girls Club in Mt. Kisco have collection containers onsite for your items to recycle with all proceeds going to our friends at the Boys and Girls Club.

Feedback from yesterday Zoom with Morah Mindy
***please remember to mute your screen when all together. For many children it was too noisy and hard to hear when all the children were talking at once. Thanks!*****

^^^^^^^^Most important^^^^^^^^^many parents have asked us to please ask that you not video or take pictures of the screen with all our children. Many parents do not like their children's video or picture images posted on facebook and beyond. Many thanks^^^^^^

Trivia Question of the day:  Yesterday's answer to how many commandments --  613  --was shared on our morning meeting. 
Yasher Koach1 (job well done)  Today's trivia question:  What was the name of the mountain that Moses climbed to get those commandments?

hugs and kisses,
Help mom and dad with the dishes
