We had a delightful time this Sunday. The children were thrilled to see one another and excited about the Patriot's game.
We are working on Chapter 19 in our Tiyulim book, which gives us practice with the Hebrew letter Sin. Sin, like last week's letter Samech, makes an "S" sound. As our textbook points out, Sin is the "non-identical twin" of the letter Shin. Shin and Sin are both three pronged characters. What differentiates the two is this: Sin has the dot above the character on the left, while Shin's dot is on the right. We used colored dot magnets on the whiteboard to demonstrate what a difference a dot can make.
Our story was about a young fisherman, who was discontent with his livelihood. Each time he longed to change professions, his wish was granted. Please ask your child how the story ended.
We enjoyed some Tu Be'Shevat songs and will soon prepare for Purim fun. Your children have been asking to bake. If any parents would like to lead a baking project, please let me know. It would be fun to make Hamentashen (on 2/12 or 3/5) or Challah on any Sunday. Please let me know if you're interested.
Have a great week. Love, Mindy
