Shavua Tov!

Our Hebrew letters of the week are…Shin & Sin!

They are like twins… but Shin has a dot on the right, and Sin has a dot on the left.

It will help you to remember if you think of the Shema. When we say it we cover our eyes with our right hand (yad yamin) that is the same for Shin. Shin also rhymes with yamin.

Shin makes a sound like when you want someone to be quiet, shhh! It sounds like this:

Sin makes a sound like a snake hissing, it sounds like this:

Now let’s make שׁ & שׂ with our bodies!

This is how we make a Shin:

This is how we make a Sin:

Now let’s print them on paper:

Here is this week’s work for the letter sin (we started the year with Shin for Shalom so it was already done at school!).

Remember that you can work on it at your own pace.

When you are done, please take a picture and send it to: s.waldman@theojcs.ca

Two very special days are coming up, Mother’s day and Grandparent’s day.

Fun Fact: Did you know that in Israel they only have one special day to celebrate all of the important adults in our lives? It is called Family day (ים המשׁפּחה).

Since we will be honouring our mothers and grandparents, it made sense to focus on family this week.

Here is our new Hebrew vocabulary:

Mishpacha- family, Ima- mother, Aba- father, ach- brother, achot- sister, tinok- baby boy, tinoket- baby girl, savta- grandmother, saba- grandfather

Yom Ha’Atzmaut

Posted by Morah Shira | Posted in Jewish Studies, Kindergarten, Uncategorized | Posted on April 22, 2020

Yom Ha’Atzmaut is Israel’s Independence Day.

In Israel, people celebrate all over the country beginning in the evening with with a special torch lighting, fireworks, and street parties.

The next day people get together for barbeques on the beach or in parks. Many people dress in blue and white (kachol ve’ lavan) the colours of the flag, and eat special foods like hummus, falafel, pita, kababs, watermelon, Bamba, and Israeli salad. There is folk dancing and lots of music, including special concerts. 

Many people imagine that Israel is a desert, but although it is tiny, the country has many different parts and when you travel through it you see that Israel has everything from busy cities, to beaches, mountains, deserts, and lakes. 

Today, we will make a map of Israel and colour in the different areas using glue and materials from home.

What You Need

  • Map of Israel Printable (I ran out of ink so I drew it with a sharpie and glued it onto cardboard from a cereal box)
  • Glue (can be made by mixing one part flour with one part water, e.g.:1/4 c flour and 1/4 cup water).
  • Different materials that are blue, green, orange and brown. I used blue paper from flyers, green edamame beans, orange lentils, and brown rice. Feel free to substitute with whatever you have on hand. It could even be a collage using only recycled materials like supermarket flyers or old magazines.

Getting Started

1. Print the Map of Israel Printable. 

For best results print on cardstock or glue it to thicker paper, like cardboard.

2. Glue the different materials to the paper according to the number and color.

   

Don’t forget to send me a picture of your finished work. I can’t wait to see the different materials you use!

Posted by Morah Shira | Posted in Jewish Studies, Kindergarten | Posted on April 17, 2020

Welcome back! We hope you all had a wonderful Pesach break!

This week we will be learning a new letter…

The letter Tzadi

Let’s make the letter Tzadi with our bodies:

This is how to print the letter Tzadi:

Now it is your turn …take your luach (hand) and etzbah ha’kesem (magic finger) and practice 3 times:

 

This is how to print it on paper.

I used a marker so you can see but you can use a pencil at home.

Here is your written work for the week. Click on the arrow to print. Remember to take your time and do your best work.

Tzadi is in words like:

tzevah- colour

etz- tree

etzbah- finger

betzah- egg

tzahov- yellow

 

There is also a Tzadi sofit. We print it differently when it is at the end of a word. It looks like a backwards y.

***Please note that there is a mistake in the print out. The word etzbah (finger) begins with an aleph, not an ayin.

*You can learn more about the letter tzadi on JiTap in this week’s assigned games.
