This week Shorashim had lots of practice counting in Hebrew through many different activities.  One of the most popular activities was hopscotch!   The challenge was that you had to say the numbers in Hebrew as you jumped on them.   Shorashim had winter in mind, playing “snowball” games in which we either tossed the “snowball” …

As you might remember, our Anafimers were super proud of the character wall they created of the Rivka story. When we added a second story to our knowledge of Rivka (and activated previous knowledge from years past) it became clear we were going to need to expand our character wall! Not only did we add …

The Shorashimers have been really taking ownership of their shimot (Hebrew names) over the past few weeks. So we set out to do a hunt around the building for the letters of their shimot. They used their “tool” (a paper plate with the letters around the edge and fold down after it’s found) to see …

We can create patterns of similar אותיות (otiyot – letters) and stack them up in tall towers …

IMG_6003

This week, in preparation for setting a hope and goal for the year (something they’ll work hard to achieve), I asked every Anafimer why s/he thinks it’s important to learn Hebrew. Every one of our second and third graders was so thoughtful. Here are some of their amazing answers (totally unprompted! really!). If I didn’t …
