It was a joy to share the morning with your remarkable children! We read and write Hebrew during each class and recently the children had asked if there is special lined paper on which to write Hebrew. There is indeed, and if any of you went to Hebrew School, you received a notebook called a Machberet. I got my first Machberet in the 50’s – and it hasn’t changed a bit! Michelle ordered Machberot (pl) and everyone was delighted with the gift.
Our Hebrew focus was on the letter Yud which makes a “Y” sound. Key words include YAD (hand) and YOM (day). Please review chapter 12 in our textbook with your child. We discussed the Superbowl, and below you can see how to say “Yay!” if your team won.
I told a story entitled “The Three Loaves”. I hope you will hear a retelling of this thrilling tale.
