|"The Pilgrims went on a big ship, called the Mayflower. It was a long trip and they got hungry. When they found Plymouth, they said 'Thank you, God, for a safe trip!'"|
|"But it was cold and they were still hungry. When they met the Native Americans, they asked if they would help the Pilgrims grow food."|
|"Together they grew lots of food, and the Native Americans shared their food with the Pilgrims. They became friends because they shared, and the first Thanksgiving is when they had dinner together."|
|This morning, Julia wished her friends a "Happy Day!"|

Our beez loved the PETTING ZOO visit; these were some of their favorite things at the visit:
Rachel, Constantin, Maddie, and Beau loved petting the Birds. Harry, Raquel, Sophie, Olivia and Eyal loved feeding and petting the little cow. Lucy loved the Rabbit but she was feeding all of the animals! Daniel, Arielle and Ms. Ruti loved the chicks and the baby pig! The beez were amazed by the little animals; they were excited to find how soft they were and they were not afraid to feed them!

Israeli symbols; we used stars and many pictures of Jerusalem.
We compared the American and Israeli flags to find out that they are the same shape; rectangles, stars, and even the same colors: Blue and White. We also looked at the differences between the two. No red for the Israeli flag, and many stars versus one.....
We also placed the Israeli flag on the table and let our beez make their own...
Israeli food; Pita, humus and oranges; yum yum!
Books about Israel in English and Hebrew are available for our beez at every center!
Welcome back to the beez land... We hope you enjoyed the holiday...

CHANUKKAH IS HERE !
It's all about Chanukah, our beez had lots of fun while working on our gifts for our Bumble beez family and our friends; we painted wood sticks, draidles, candles and menorah. We also used foam stickers with Chanukah symbols. The highlight of this week was trying to spin the draidles..... not so easy but we will keep trying / spinning them and we all will be able to do it with lots of practicing... (a fun exercise for our fine motor skills:)
"I am a Latkes".... by Debbie Friedman
Latkes with Guest Mr.Chef John
Latkes tasting: Latkes are one of the favorite
foods we eat during Chanukkah. We had a special treat to have Mr. James make us Latkes! He
showed us the ingredients that we can use to
make latkes: potatoes, onions and sometimes
sweet potatoes, and of course oil. Our favorite part was the eating! We enjoyed these homemade latkes with applesauce! With our tummies full,
we sang the latke song back to our class!
@ MY GYM
The bumblebees had demonstration class on
fundamentals with Mr. James. Our children got a little taste of baseball. He taught us the
bases; first, second, third, and home! Our
children explored the basic elements of
baseball: the bat, the ball and the glove.
Mr. James showed us how they are used. Then the action began; our bumblebees ran through all the bases as they picked up a stick. Our beez loved playing the game of baseball; I think we have
some promising players among us!!!

Chanukkah is around the corner and we are happy and excited to learn about this happy and colorful holiday, we started with the driedel, in hebrew - sevivon!
Our beez are enjoying the weather outside and they loved having art on the playground. They decorated a 3D driedel; they did beautiful work and we proudly displayed them all in our class!
We were happy to be back in school after a long vacation, we started the week with Ms. Yael in Body Science. The Bumblebees had lots of fun! They learned about healthy foods, and how to plant them! While they learned to plant they got to stretch their arms and legs. They also pretended to pick their fruits and vegetables after they grew.
Our pumpkin seeds are growing; after cutting the pumpkin, we let the beez put some seeds in a plastic bags with water and we watch them grow, when they were to tall our beez helped to plant them in a pot! with lots of love, water and sun we will continue to observe them and we hope to see them growing for long time :)
We celebrated Thanksgiving today, we had a lot of fun and we loved seeing all of you :)
These are some of the crafts we did for the holiday;
It was a busy day @ the beez land; MY GYM is here!
Our beez were exploring all the puppets and the stuffed animals. They were crawling throughout the tunnels, kicked balls, and then they ran and ran some more. And we ended the MY GYM session with a puppet show!
Loggerhead Marine Life visited -
Mr. Evan showed us a turtle shell,
turtle skull, and turtle flippers. He taught us what turtles eat and where they live. The children were delighted when they were also able to touch a turtle shell, a sea star, and a sea sponge. They learned so much about turtles. Did you know that there are 7 types of turtles and the Leatherback is our largest turtle and can get up to 7 to 9 feet! We are now all encouraged to visit Loggerhead Marine Life Center in

Going for a “Nature Walk” is one of the ideas I brought back from our NAEYC conference in Orlando; if our weather allows us, we will try walking outside every day!
They kept collecting many leaves and flowers; in Yellow and Purple. They discovered mushrooms and saw birds and squirrels. We let them run around and enjoy the freedom of NATURE. We spent over half hour out and our beez were so happy running and looking for pieces of nature to bring back to our SCIENCE CENTER in the class.

A collage from our little party @ the beach :)
Our Bumblebee z learned how significant the Shoffar is to our High Holiday; we saw the shoffar; we heard the sound of it, and we even know what it is made of. Here we are decorating a pre-cut shape of a shoffar with colorful tissue papers. We took this opportunity to talk about the square shape and to identify the variety of colored papers we used. We also noticed that one color can have lots of different shades.
Our beez are all about exploring and they love it :)
We said good bye to our little bee; she is going back to Israel. We wish to all our Bumblebeez families
A HAPPY AND SWEET NEW YEAR
Rosh Hashanah is here and we are ready; we ate apples dipped in honey and we made round Challah with raisins.
It was sweet week @ the beez land!
Rosh Hashanah is almost here and @ the Bumblebeezzz land we are in full swing learning about it through books, songs, art activities and dancing. Rosh Hashanah is the first holiday in the Jewish calander. We are celebrating the beginning of the year and the birthday of the world. We greet all our families with "Happy and Sweet New Year" or "Shanna Tovah u'Metukah"
