Our blog is missing pictures!
This weekend, our teens participated in NFTY-NEL's Winter Kallah. This amazing youth group event was SO well attended by TEE teens, that we didn't have anyone available to take pictures of classes today! Nevertheless, here is what the Grade K-2 students did today...
Our Kindergarten students welcomed a new friend today! We were very excited to have a new student in the class and to practice "loving our neighbor as ourselves" by welcoming our new student the way that we would want to be welcomed if we were new somewhere. We also spent time perfecting the Purim costumes and crowns that we started working on last Sunday. They came in handy when we participated in an interactive Purim story activity.

Today, the Grade 1 students read a book about the story of Purim. We talked about how Esther and Mordechai were Jewish heroes for telling King Ahashverosh the truth and saving the Jewish people. In Art, Grade 1 made puppets of the people in the Purim story using popsicle sticks and paper. Want to know more about the Purim story?

Grade 2 had an exciting day! We started learning a new letter - gimmel. We practiced gimmel by playing a letter matching game. During Kehillah, which was in our classroom, we talked about the Religious School Restaurant Fundraiser at Buffalo Wild Wings on March 19. Everyone was excited to take home the flyer! Afterwards, we made huge maps of Israel by covering our tables in butcher block paper. The students labeled all of the major cities and topographical features and each group selected 3 different cities to label in Hebrew. We also enjoyed coloring in the Dead Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. What a great day!
