Our Second Graders have been eagerly awaiting our model Seder, which will take place this Sunday from 11:00 to 12:00 in the classroom. I want to thank each of you for your efforts in coordinating this Pesach celebration and sending in food. We'll be creating one long festive table, and the children will read from "My Very Own Hagaddah" while following the traditions of the holiday meal. You are invited to share this event with us.
We've been learning Hebrew words and phrases related to Passover. With the foundation of sight reading Hebrew letters and vowels, our children are beginning to decode multi-syllable words. In addition, there is an increasing amount of Hebrew spoken in the classroom to enhance comprehension.
On Sunday, March 26th, I read a book by Sylvia Rouss entitled " The Littlest Frog" and told a story about Elijah's cup. I hope that you enjoyed a re-telling of these tales. Elijah the Prophet has been a frequent visitor to our class in stories. When you sing "Eliyahu Hanavi" at your seder, this mystical, magical character will be familiar.
I am happy to be sharing this holiday season with you. Love, Mindy
