Remembering and Reflecting

Can you believe it’s already the end of May? With just a few weeks left of the school year, Anafim (“Branches” for 2nd and 3rd grade) is taking some time to remember all of the awesome things that we’ve done together as a community this year.

We started by thinking about our current theme, nosei v’ol im chaveiro (helping a friend carry a burden.) We’ve made up stories and read texts about nosei v’ol im chaveiro, but have there been any examples of it in our classroom this year? Anafimers responded with a unanimous “YES!”

Some examples of nosei v’ol im chaveiro from our classroom that Anafimers came up with were going slowly with your partner during Ivrit, inviting other children to build with you, taking turns talking, and cleaning up materials.

Next, we looked at pictures of some of the awesome things we did together this year, like all of our past themes, holidays, and Hebrew challenges.

Then it was time to really step back inside of those moments from this past year that we loved. Children set to work recreating their favorite explorations and activities from the year.

Rebuilding the ladder that appeared in a dream to Ya’akov.
Revisiting reasons someone might do a tefilla (prayer).
Retelling the Channukah story

All of this is in preparation for our end of the year project, which is a newspaper covering all of the biggest stories from Anafim this year! Keep your eyes peeled for it to be hitting the shelves at a local newsstand near you!
