Success!

It worked! We were so excited to come into the classroom this morning and see the final results. We noticed that the purple wasn’t quite purple and upon further investigation, we found that the paper towel coming from the blue cup was not touching the bottom of the empty (purple) cup. We theorized that had it been touching the bottom, we would have gotten a better result. We also noticed that the water level lowered in the red, yellow, and blue cups and theorized that it must have travelled through the thirsty paper towels into the empty cups, and that is how the colours mixed. That also changed the colours of the paper towels, which is something we didn’t think would happen!

As we conducted our experiment, we followed the scientific method, below, which is posted in our classroom. Let us know if you repeat the experiment at home, and what results you got!

C is for…

COLOURS!

Today we started to explore colours, as our letter of the week is C. We reviewed the colours in Hebrew and we learned their names in English and French. We watched this video about mixing primary colours (until 3:02) and then made predictions on our chart to show what we think will happen in our “walking rainbow” experiment.

Let us know how it goes if you try it at home! We have to leave our experiment overnight tonight because it hadn’t quite finished by the end of the day. Check out the photos of our progress!

Stay tuned!

Last Day Tomorrow!

Dear JK Families,

We have had an AMAZING year together and it’s a bittersweet feeling that we are all feeling today! Your children have been asking for this for a few weeks and we are happy to announce that tomorrow (Wednesday, June 28) will be….. A PYJAMA PARTY!!!!! Please send your child dressed in weather-appropriate pjs (no fleece!), bring a small stuffy, some snacks and water. We will not need lunch as it is a 12:00 pm dismissal.

We are also sending home a lot of things your children have worked on throughout the year. Please send an extra canvas bag in case their backpacks get too heavy. Some of the folders have summer practice pages, so please keep an eye out for those.

Thank you so much for being a part of the 2022-23 OJCS JK family, we LOVED having your children in our class this year, and watching them grow and become the amazing, confident, kind, unique individuals that they are today.

Keep in touch! Have a fabulous summer!

Warmly,

Morah Susan, Monsieur Ebbs, and Morah Mushki

Shalom families!

We are so proud to announce that one of our very own students has registered for the 2023 Lemonade Standemoneum, presented by Glenview homes (also one of our wonderful families!). He will be setting up his lemonade stand tomorrow, Tuesday June 13th, at the front of the school at pick up time and JK will be helping him sell lemonade! All proceeds will be donated to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. Please consider making a donation. Hope to see you there, sipping on some delicious refreshing lemonade!

Love,

JK

Fusion Power!

This morning we had the pleasure of a visit from Mr. Josh Ray in our classroom instead of going down to the maker space! We started investigating the states of matter and how to change them. Today’s topic was “melting” and we remembered that there used to be a TON of snow and ice on our playground and then it melted because hot temperatures are here! Our activity is creating a masterpiece using our many skills. To name a few: fine motor, 1 to 1 correspondence, matching, patterning, and… PERLER BEADS!!!

We’ve still got a lot of work to do on our creations before we fuse (melt) them together (with high temperature!) but here is a sneak peek:

Upcoming events
