Exploring the Parts of our Guf In Shalom Chaverim


This week in Shalom Chaverim was all about exploring our guf. The children explored their faces and bodies with mirrors, with art, and in stories and songs. Children and parents worked together to trace their bodies–some children were anxious about this at first, and others couldn’t wait to be traced. Then, children were invited to …

Making farming books for Sh’mitah


It’s the first week of our new theme.  Understanding how farming works is one of the essential steps of learning about and exploring the concept of Sh’mitah.  So, many of our children including all of Shorashim, Shteelim and Nitzanim started a yetzirah project this week that has to do with the farming process.   We broke …

A New Kind of Ivrit in Nitzanim!

A first grader sorts and matches sight words.

Have you heard? When we came back from winter break, Nitzanimers had a new space AND a new way to do Ivrit. After a month of trying out our new strategy we can say with confidence that our new plan has been a HUGE success for מורות (morot—teachers) and children. Here’s how it works: Each …

Chanukah is Coming to Beit Nitzanim


We’ve started to talk about Chanukah in Beit Nitzanim. Before we jump into the Chanukah stories, we spent some time today refreshing our Chanukah vocabulary בעברית (b’Ivrit—in Hebrew). We made some common symbols with our גופים (gufim—bodies). A סביבון (sevivon—dreidel): A חנוכייה (chanukiyah—Chanukah menorah): A נר (ner—candle): We also cracked codes and practiced our script …

Shorashim Begins Discussing Daniel

One Shorashimer draws a picture from the Daniel story

This week in Shorashim we began our new theme of הלל (Hallel)! We started reading a new story about Daniel in the Lion’s Den, which is one of our many examples we will see of a הלל (Hallel) moment. In Shorashim we have begun thinking about what this story is about and how the different characters might feel. …

Anafim Roundup


There were too many great pictures this past week in Anafim to just choose one theme or narrative! I’ve decided to share snippets of what we are up to. A big part of Anafim has been using the vocabulary we have acquired over the year in full, crazy sentences. We have a whole gallery of …

A New Job in Nitzanim

Even as our year draws to a close, Nitzanim are getting new responsibilities. Our newest one, just added to פגישה [pegisha; meeting] last week involves putting together lots of the Hebrew that we’ve been working on all year. Each day, one child in Nitzanim gets an opportunity to build a sentence out of legos. The sentence …

Reinvigorating Ivrit in Anafim


The Anafimers have come such a long way in their study of Ivrit! We have children reading dialogues in Ivrit and even changing up the words in a sentence to make an even sillier sentence that still makes sense grammatically! Another huge milestone in Ivrit is the familiarity children have with the language that they …

Nitzanim Shows Their Skills


We are so proud of our Nitzanimers this year who have acomplished so many things in their עברית (Ivrit – Hebrew) challenges.  Everyone’s been working hard to challenge themselves and learn more than they knew at the beginning of the year.  Including the boy in the video before. With very little help from the morah, he sings …
