After a crazy week, our class is very thankful for many things……especially at this holiday season…..including a roof over our heads!
Get ready….. a new letter is here!!! Some of us have been really looking forward to this one…..
We get to meet more friends in our virtual class and more words with this letter like:
גדי Gadi a boy in Morah Shira’s virtual class
גילה Gila a girl in Morah Shira’s virtual class
גג Gag roof
גב Gav Back (on a body)
גב של גדי Gav shel Gadi back of Gadi
גב של גילה Gav shel Gila back of Gila
גן Gan playground
At this point we are also introduced to vowels that makes the sound–
EEEEEE and meet new friends:
בינה Bina a girl in Morah Shira’s virtual class
אמא Ema mother
HIGH HOLIDAYS are here and we are ready! We know the names of the notes of the Shofar. We will be very ready for the new year 5778!!! And we will eat apples and honey this week thanks to PTA!! We will throw away all our “bad things” symbolically using breadcrumbs in to the pond. This is called תשליך Tashlich and it really happens on the first day of Rosh Hashana around 6pm at a body of water. Join us the Center if you like on Thursday at the pond and we will provide the bread!!!
We will be going on a Sukkah Hop on Tuesday, Oct. 10 at about 1:30 PM. If you would like us to come and visit your sukkah in the neighborhood, please let us know!! (Thanks in advance for your hospitality!!) We have a few drivers that signed up already, but we could always use more! It’s a great afternoon and learning experience for everyone who “hops” with us!!
And continue reading our blog!!!! And continue reviewing the letters and vowels found on the circled pages in Ariyot (the orange workbook). Practice is key!!! And bringing Ariyot to school everyday is extremely important to our success!!
We appreciate you and the roof over our heads—the school’s, our homes’ and HaShem’s goodness.
