Grade 1 – Kitah Aleph

Posted on October 15, 2017

Kitah aleph students shared their hopes and dreams for the upcoming Hebrew school year. The children wrote about a variety of topics that they would like to learn more about this year. These topics included: reading Hebrew letters, writing Hebrew letters, learning more Hebrew words, learning about the Jewish holidays and about Jewish history, learning more Hebrew songs and prayers and learning more about the land of Israel. In class today, the children played some games with our shinshin, Bar, to learn Hebrew words for different body parts. They learned that rosh is the Hebrew word for head and yad is Hebrew for hand. Other body parts we practiced included the Hebrew words for knees, feet, nose, elbow and fingers. The children also sang a Hebrew version of the song, “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.” We reviewed the letter bet, that looks like a ball in a box. The children practiced greeting each other with the phrase, boker tov, good morning since the word boker begins with a bet. The new letter today was the letter tav which begins the word torah. The children also were introduced to the letter shin and will spend more time learning about shin next week. Shavua tov to everyone! Joanne
