Lots of math these days! We are learning to count to 100 in Hebrew.
Each day, Nitzanim children guess how many marbles/beans/stickers/etc. are in a glass jar, and write their guess in Hebrew. At (pegisha – meeting), we count the pieces, out loud in Hebrew. Children figure out the difference between the closest guess and the actual number.
In our new favorite tag game, you’re safe if you crouch low and shout a number in Hebrew. We play in rounds: you’re safe if you say “twenty” in Hebrew, then a round of thirty, forty, etc. Children ask to play it every week!
We love math so much that children began figuring out the sum of every person’s Hebrew name (in Hebrew, each letter corresponds with a number).
