HOORAY!!! WE LEARNED A NEW VOWEL
I make an "E" sound
1.) It's one dot so it's so "E"asy to remember.
2.) It looks like one "pea"
Sometimes this vowel is followed by the letter י (yud). Despite the addition of the י (yud) we still say only "e".
I am beyond impressed that every student not only enjoyed the activities for their part of the game, but made a point to say they were going to strive for a "black out" in which they completed all the squares.
Happy Birthday to the Trees!
1.) Plant a tree here or in Israel
2.) Eat from the 7 species (Shevat Haminim)
3.) Try a new fruit.
To experience this holiday to the fullest the class and I had a taste test of shevat haminim. They tried dates, pomegranates, figs, grapes, olives, wheat in the form of kedem crackers, and barley in the form of nut free granola. They filled out a taste taste worksheet, so you will exactly which they liked and which they did not care for. Some of them were very surprised that they liked the dates or figs so much.
