And the story goes…

This week we have been reviewing stories from the Torah that we have heard before… months ago! But our nursery and kindergarten children seem to remember like it was yesterday. We started with Bereshit (the beginning), floated with Noah, remembered Yosef (Joseph), and parted the sea with Moshe (Moses). There are so many stories and so …

HaSefer Sheli (My Book)

At some point this past week your child(ren) probably brought home a whole mess of totally awesome stuff they created at the Jewish Enrichment Center over the past year. One of them most definitely was their HaSefer Sheli. They completed this book in Yetzirah to review all those great things they learned and remember fun …

We focused our Shavuot explorations about the harvest aspect: we were inspired by pictures we had of various fruit and flowers that grow in spring and drew our own interpretations of them, as well as pictures of some other plants we …

Shorashim Makes a Tzedakah Box

This week Shorashim explored the question of what to do when one finds lost money.  One Shorashimer found 3 pennies!  She was very concerned as to where they came from, so she decided to go around and ask to see if anyone at the Jewish Enrichment Center lost them.   They didn’t belong to anyone …

Shorashim Makes a Lost and Found Box

Continuing with our theme of Hashavat Aveidah (returning lost items), this week Shorashim discussed what to do if they happen to find a lost item.  They quickly responded, “return it to the person who lost it,” but what if the owner is unknown?  Using our knowledge of school environments, it didn’t take long for Shorashimers …

Ha Safair Sheli הספר שלי (My Book)

Shorashim Showcases Important Items

Shorashim dove further into Hashevat Aveidah this week by making posters for items that are special to them.   At a very young age, it is difficult for children to understand the perspective of others.  Part of Hashevat Aveidah is returning lost items to others.  We wanted to make sure that Shorashimers were able to …

Yoga Chayot, Teva, Pesach and Shavuot!

Every Wednesday after Shirah/Tfillah the children and I do yoga together. It started out as a movement break while only speaking Hebrew. But as time went on, they learned more and more Hebrew and needed more of a challenge. So we did Yoga Teva taking them through the cycle of a grown plant or tree. …
