This week was Bear Week at Camp Gan Shalom. We crawled, growled, built caves, and made bear puppets. We went on a bear hunt through the shul and learned how to bear crawl. We read a variety of books to help learn about bears including the Berenstein Bears, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, and many others!
We made challah this week, some stepping stones for our garden, neat bee hats for our play, and when it was nice, played in the water and outside.
We had a great time putting on a play with Morah Marina based on the book “Lazy Bear.” Make sure to read below about all our upcoming events and important classroom news! Check out this week’s pictures here. We will see you next week for dog week! (with a special visitor…see below!)
A Visit From Charlie Poodle
Next week is dog week, and we will have a special visitor. Charlie Poodle is a therapy dog who volunteers weekly at Children’s Hospital. He is taking time out of his busy schedule to come visit us next week! We will see him Tuesday!
Important Classroom Updates
Please note that classrooms 201 and 202 are now nut free. Common areas such as the music room and art studio are nut free as well. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Hesse in the preschool office.
Don’t Forget–the last day of camp is August 10th! The school will be closed for maintenance the week of August 13-17. The week of August 20-24 is available for FULL YEAR students only. Thanks!
