Hello Gan Class Families!
It was great to see so many of you at the Family Friday Dinner and Kabbalat Shabbat service!
This week, our class was focused on Passover activities. The day started with a whole school Tefilah. The Bet Class(2nd grade) led the service just like they did for Kabbalat Siddur last week! After, Cantor Ken helped us to practice some of the songs we will hear at the Seder tonight.
In our classroom we read the story of Passover and heard about how Moses saved all the Jews from slavery. We constructed a place mat to remind us of the order of the seder. We enjoyed some chocolate covered matzah while reading a story about a girl who is sick of matzah until her grandfather makes matzah brei. We decorated an akifomen holder which will hopefully keep the crumbs to a minimum and enjoyed some original poems Ann has written about the holiday.
All students were sent home with a 4 Questions booklet so that they can practice and a bag of beads as well as the instructions for a project that will help students learn to count the Omer. Each day they will add another bead to a sting to count the 49 days between Passover and Shavuot.
Our next class will be on April 30th. I hope you enjoy a wonderful Passover and April Vacation.
