In connection to learning about Br'iat H'aolam (the creation of the world), K-Segol studied Day 5 -- when Hashem created sea life and birds. This led to an in-depth study of marine life. As part of this unit, the class read many exciting non-fiction books and created a list of questions and observations. Some of these books included stories and biographies about famous scuba divers and marine biologists, such as Jacques Cousteau and Eugenie Clark. The children later learned that they are fortunate enough to have a scuba diving expert as a member of the Ramaz faculty...

This year, the Nursery program at Ramaz participated in a Family Book Project. In order to build relationships between home and school, we asked our families and morot to create their own individual stories in a short picture book. Children in their nursery years are in the process of forming their identities. Much of the work in the classroom stems from who the children are as individuals, their histories, and their experiences. These books bring their individual stories into the life of the classroom...

All ECC classes left school and "hopped" to sukkot in the neighborhood! Students prepared baked goods for their hosts, brought books, and sang their favorite songs together when they visited the sukkot. Special thanks to the families who hosted...

Nursery Adom took a short walk to Central Park last week! Students collected their fall foliage favorites - from pine cones to acorns to colorful leaves! The children searched their handouts to make sure they were able to collect each of the items they were looking for. Afterwards, they enjoyed snacks and played outdoor games. The visit to the park was an exciting way to help connect our students with mother nature during this beautiful time of year. They truly had a blast and are looking forward to their next visit to Central Park!

At the ECC Shabbat parties this past week, students focused on this midah in a meaningful way.
