Today was all about being outside! We ate our morning snack in the school Sukkah, played on the playground, and got to play on the bike track. While inside, we did Shabbat and got to enjoy lots of free play. We are looking forward to starting our study of fall next week after the holiday!

What a whirlwind these short weeks have been! Our Katon class finished their study of Sukkot and have begun a short study of Simchat Torah this week.

Our unit of Sukkot has lead to lots of fine motor exploration this week. The pincer grasp is an important developmental milestone for toddlers and our kiddos really have enjoyed activities that test their use of this skill. One class favorite this week has been a "put in" task with wooden coins and old takeout containers. A slot was cut in the lid to make the use of the pincer grasp necessary to get the coin in the container.
