There Is Still Time!

As we approach the end of the year, in Shteelim (‘saplings’ for kindergarten) we are finding that….

there is still time….. to play a new עִברִית (Ivirt- Hebrew) choice! This one is called מלחמת אותיות (Milchemet Otiot), a variation on the card game war that helps us review אותיות (otito– letters) and recall letters from memory.

“We give out all the cards, everyone puts down a card at the same time, if your card is closest to “א” (the first letter in the Hebrew Alphabet) you get the cards.”


There is still time….to try a new modality for telling a story about fixing אוֹנָאַת דְבָרִים (Ona’at Devarim- hurting with words)!

A comic about fixing אוֹנָאַת דְבָרִים (Ona’at Devarim- hurting with words), with an apology of action.

“I want to make a whole book of comics about fixing אוֹנָאַת דְבָרִים (Ona’at Devarim- hurting with words)!”

“Lets make a comic about fixing אוֹנָאַת דְבָרִים (Ona’at Devarim- hurting with words) together!”

There is still time… to build with new materials! Shteelim (‘saplings’ for kindergarten) is trying out the large arched blocks. Its not easy to balance these blocks on top of each other, but we found a strategy that works!

There is still time… for a new מִשְׂחָק (mischak– game)! In Gematria, each Hebrew letter has a numerical value. In Gematria ball, someone calls a Hebrew letter and everyone works together to figure out the numerical value, then we group the correct number of כדורים (kadurimballs) with the letter.

We are always finding new ways to work together!
