Shorashim (“Roots” for Nursery) has been learning about Hebrew all year, and we are finally starting to get the hang of making the letters ourselves!
But just writing the Aleph-bet with a marker is not nearly as exciting as using white-board markers! With these we can write, wipe it off, then write again! We got so much practice writing our שמות (shemot – names) on special pages that let us both trace and free-write!
And of course, what better way to experiment with letter shapes than with moldable, bendable wiki sticks?
“Here’s a mem on the chart…”
“…And here’s a mem that I made!”
And all that practice gave me confidence to write a whole new letter: a SHIN!
