Modeh Ani Watercolors

This week the Shteelimers started their Boker Tov final yetzirah project by completing the first step: a Modeh Ani watercolor.

First we opened up a discussion about the tzeva’em (colors) we see baboker (in the morning). The children shared: “Adom! I see adom in the morning because I have an apple tree in my yard!”, “Katom, Tzahov and Adom! Like the sunrise.”, “Sagol. Because I get up so early that its still a little dark out.”

We put this knowledge to the paper with individual palettes of watercolors.

What a surprise! Hebrew letters appeared as we filled the white page with boker tzeva’em! It didn’t take long for our brilliant artists to realize it spelt out Modeh Ani (“I give thanks…”)
