It was so wonderful to see so many of the children on last Shabbat. We were so busy and had a great morning. After we davened with the congregation, we came back to the room to work on some of the prayers. We practiced our bowing skills for the Barchu prayer. We can now recognize the tune and we know what to do when we hear this prayer, We have now begun to work on an other prayer, Mah Tovu. Each one of the words from the prayer was written on a puzzle piece. After the gimel and dalet children read the words correctly, we turned the words over to solve the puzzle. The bet group assembled the puzzle. We discovered the puzzle was a picture of Abraham and his tent. This lead us into our parsha of the week. We talked about Abraham inviting guests into his tent, and how he made them feel welcomed. We then built our own popsicle stick tents and talked about how we would make guests feel welcomed. Sarah and I were thrilled to hear what the groups said about their "hotel tents". We would have felt very welcomed in all of them.
Another topic we worked on was counting. The rabbi says the page numbers in Hebrew during services so we are learning to count. We worked on the numbers one through ten and learned how to combine words to make the numbers greater than ten. Sarah and I were thrilled to see how the Bet group could apply the formula to make the numbers. Every child was able to say at least one number and add that number to our bulletin board.
Reminder, there is no school this Tuesday because the Canton schools are not in session and there is no school this coming weekend due to Veteran's Day.
I hope everyone is enjoying Sukkot, It was so wonderful to see everyone last Shabbat. I really enjoyed davening with many parents as well as the children. On Shabbat, we welcomed Kitah Bet into our class. Every Shabbat, kitah bet, gimel and dalet will be together as a group. After the children left services, Sarah and I taught the group the blessings for entering the sukkah and for the lulav. Kitah Bet looked for the letter shin as that was the letter they learned last week. We took a nature walk outside and found grape vines, maple trees, and willow. Mrs. Langmead showed the class where she used to hunt for tadpoles when she was in kindergarten and where she played on the temple's swing set back in the seventies. We ended our tour in the sukkah, where we practiced our tefillot that we had just learned. We then went inside and made decorations for the community sukkah at Jacob R.'s house. Hopefully, many of you will see the decorations we made when you go to Pizza in the Hut this coming Shabbat. We also talked about this week's parsha. One of the themes was admitting when you make a mistake and correcting mistakes. We played pick up sticks in small groups. If you moved the sticks, you had to admit your mistake and then correct yourself. We had a lot of fun.
A few reminders, We do have class this Shabbat. As soon as you enter the building, please join us in the sanctuary. Please remind your child, both the girls and the boys, to either bring a kippah from home or take one from my desk in the classroom.Your child does not need to bring their reading book, we are working from the siddur on the Shabbat days that we meet. If you are staying for the morning, we will meet you again for our kiddush lunch at 12. If you are not staying, please come in the building to pick up your child. Thank you.
