Shorashim Knows Their Colors!

This week Shorashim practiced their צבעים (tzevaim – colors)!  We did a lot of work matching objects of the same צבע (tzeva – color), such as the אדום (adom – red) match a Shorashimer is working on here!

In Yetzirah with Morah Naomi we identified different צבעים (tzevaim – colors) on the big rug.  Here friends are hopping from כתום (katom – orange) to כתום (katom – orange)!

In order to determine which צבע (tzeva – color) to find, we spun a giant arrow!  Here we are getting ready to find צהוב (tzahov – yellow)!

We made meals to match some of our new “friends” in Shorashim like Mr. ירוק (Yarok – Green)…

…and built houses for them like the one here for Mr. כחול (Kachol – Blue) and two of his friends.  Can you guess who?  Hint, they are very picky and only like things that match their צבע (tzeva – color)!

We even sorted our אותיות (otiyot – letters) magnets by צבע (tzeva – color)!  Here friends sort them by putting some סגול (sagol – purple) magnets in the proper section.

We even found the צבעים (tzevaim – colors) on our hopscotch, calling out each one as we jumped across the board.  Here one friend calls out ורוד (varod – pink)!Photo Dec 15, 9 48 56 AM


On Sunday we shared our space (and they shared theirs) with Anafim.  They helped us with some of the צבעים (tzevaim – colors) that aren’t in the rainbow such as לבן (lavan – white), חום (choom – brown), and שחור (shachor – black).  Here you can see the mixed ages playing an updated version of our snowball toss game from last week.

Now that you know all of your צבעים (tzevaim – colors) [did you notice that you were learning just by reading the blog post?], you can practice some Hebrew together at home!

Have a wonderful Winter Break!  See you in 2014!
