We had a wonderful time at Sunday school today. Following many days of extreme cold, weather was on all of our minds. We did a quick unit on Hebrew weather words, emphasizing Kar (cold) and Kham (hot). The children told vacation stories about being Kar in the Car and we had a great laugh. Here are some vocabulary words:
Hebrew WeatherThis is a list of words about the weather in Hebrew. That way you can describe what kind of weather and temperature it is where you live.
Snowing: יורד שלג
Sunny: השמש זורחת
Windy: יש רוח
We focused on Tzadee today. Tzadee has one form when it appears at the beginning or middle of a word, and a final form when it ends the word. Key words are Matzah and Tzedaka. Following our discussion about Middot (Jewish values) I told a story about a penny who wanted to do a good deed. Please ask your child to retell the story. Each child made a Tzedaka box.
I am happy to tell you that your children are fascinated by Hebrew and some even asked for homework! Homework this week is to review Chapter 7 in the textbook: pages 30 to 34.
Our next class will be on January 21. Until then, stay warm and cozy.
