Our new letter last week was (koof). Koof makes a "k" sound and has a Keshet (rainbow) . Your child now knows 2 letters that make a "k" sound, (koof) and (kaf). Here are some words that begin with a koof:

Rainbow Keh-shet קֶשֶׁת

Community K-he-lah קְהִלָּה

Monkey Kof קוֹף

Small Ka-tan קָטָן

Summer Ka-yetz קַיִץ

Cold Kar קַר

Holy Ka-dosh קָדוֹשׁ


Our letter this week was the letter צ (tsadee). צ makes a "ts" sound. A way to remember צ is to look at the triangles that the letter creates. The triangles look like pizza slices that were removed. When you say the word pizza, the sound that is created by the "zz" sound is identical to that of the letter. Here are some words we learned this week:

Color Tseh-va צֶבַע

Bird Tsee-por צִפּוֹר

Turtle Tsav צָב

North Tsa-phone צָפוֹן

Frog Tsfar-day-ah צְפַרְדֵּעַ

Tzedakah צְדָקָה

Yellow Tsa-hov צָהֹוב

Our continued learning of the mitzvah of Kibud Av V'Em

Last week in Judaics, we focused on the mitzvah of honoring your parents. We discussed that it is a commandment and that it can mean respecting aunts and uncles too. In addition, we spoke about the ways we fulfill this mitzvah now, as well as how we can in the future.

Shabbat Shalom!! XOXO
