Grade K – Gan Class Update 12/20/15

Posted on December 21, 2015

It is so crazy that this was our last class of 2015!  The next time I will see you it will be 2016….wow time sure flies.

We were thrilled to be joined by or Gesher buddy Sam this morning who helped to serve us breakfast and chatted with us about this week’s Torah portion before our whole school Teffilot.

Today we heard a new Torah story.  This story was about how Rebekkah was chosen to be Isaac’s wife.  She was nice to people and animals which she proved by giving water to the servant’s camels.  After break we will learn about the family that Isaac and Rebekkah have together.

There were two new letters today!  Mem makes the sound m- and begins the word mezuzzah.  Aleph is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet and makes no sound!  

In our Celebrations unit, we prepared for our upcoming family learning program by learning about the mezuzzah.  We observed some of the mezzuzot around the building and practiced saying the Shema(the prayer inside the mezuzzah). We are looking forward to making our own mezzuzot next time we are together.

Winter break begins this week.  Our next class will take place on Sunday, January 10th.  I hope you all have a wonderful New Year.  See you in 2016!
