It was another busy Sunday in Kitah Bet. The children began their morning with tefillah (prayers) in the sanctuary together with the kindergarten and first grade. Cantor Ken reviewed a number of the morning prayers with the students. We sang some songs for Rosh Hashannah and heard the shofar.
Back in the classroom, the children enjoyed an ice breaker game together. Hamorah Margie and I learned more about some of the interests and skills of our students as well as some things that we did not know about each other (despite the fact that we have been friends since our own days in kindergarten at Countryside Elementary school in Newton). The children too seemed to enjoy learning new facts about each other.
During Hebrew with Hamorah Margie, the children used cards to make the words Shabbat and “bat” (daughter) as well as many nonsense words. They also began writing the letters shin, tav and bet.
