Nitzanim Writes Poetry

Over the last couple of weeks of our הלל (Hallel) theme, Nitzanimers have explored different ways to express a desire to הלל (hallel). We’ve danced to renditions of Psalm 150, made music representing three parts of the Yaakov story, painted our feelings, sung הלל (Hallel) songs at שירה/תפילה (Shirah/Tefilah), and much more. This week we’re exploring writing as a mode of expression. First and second graders replaced some of the words of Psalm 150 with their ideas about הלל (Hallel). Here are some examples from our budding poets:

A first grade poem:

הַלְלוּ-יָהּ (Halleluyah)

הַלְלוּ (Hallelu) in Pump it up.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) in my house.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) for my family.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) because games.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the blast of the people saying “YAY!”

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the lyre and the harp.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with play and dancing.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the strings and flutes.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the TV.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the loud TV.

כֹּל הַנְּשָׁמָה, תְּהַלֵּל יָהּ: הַלְלוּ-יָהּ (Kol ha’neshama t’hallel ya. halleluyah— Let every thing that breathes sing praises to God. Halleluyah.)

A second grade poem: 

הַלְלוּ-יָהּ (Halleluyah)

הַלְלוּ (Hallelu) in Monkey Island.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) when I get out of a fire drill. 

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) for having a house.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) having clothes.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the blast of a voice that is singing. 

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the lyre and the harp.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with running as fast as I can and dancing.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the strings and flutes.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the guitar.

הַלְלוּהוּ (Halleluhu) with the loud flute.

כֹּל הַנְּשָׁמָה, תְּהַלֵּל יָהּ: הַלְלוּ-יָהּ (Kol ha’neshama t’hallel ya. halleluyah— Let every thing that breathes sing praises to God. Halleluyah.)
