We had a joyous morning on Sunday with your enthusiastic children. Each child was given a copy of Shalom Uvrachah Primer which we'll use as a text book this year. We began with an exploration of Chapter 1. The key word in this chapter is Shabbat - in Hebrew, Shin-Bet-Tav. Please review this chapter at home. In the spirit of the High Holidays, we learned about dipping apples in honey and about the Shofar (Ram's horn). I told a story about two farmers, one of whom was jealous of his neighbor for having a more successful harvest. Please ask your child to retell this story of forgiveness. Have a wonderful week! Love, Mindy
Our first Sunday school meeting was extraordinary with your amazing children. We introduced the Hebrew words for yes (Ken) and no (Lo) and read a book while substituting Ken and Lo for yes and no. We read a story about a missing Shofar - the family dog was the culprit.
Emphasizing family love, I told a story entitled "The Two Brothers" with props. The children then created an art project depicting the story. Please ask your child to retell the story.
Please continue to send nut free snack to school each Sunday. Would you kindly alert me to any food allergies? Thank you.
I look forward to seeing you this coming Sunday. With kind wishes, Mindy
