Today we learned about the story of the upcoming holiday of Passover! Mrs. Bernstein told us the story of Moses in Egypt.
Then after T'filah we came back to the classroom to find that there was a lot of food in the table. Some of the things were fruit snacks, matzah, pasta, and fruits.
We wrote whether we thought each food was kosher for Passover or not.
At the end of class, we got to eat the food, what a yummy class!
First grade had a very exciting day that was all about Passover! First, Ms. Levy read us a picture book about the story of Pesach.
We learned all about the 10 plagues, the Israelites as slaves in Egypt, and about how God, through Moses, freed the Israelites.
After our story, we spoke about being free and also the importance of freedom. We made sure to point out that freedom doesn't mean we can do whatever we want, and we still need to take responsibility when we hurt others. We spoke about certain freedoms at home such as choosing what toy we want to play with. Then, Ms. Levy gave us the freedom to choose what we wanted to draw.
We got to illustrate ourselves in either the Passover story or at a seder with our family. We also had the choice for our picture to be silly, interesting, colorful or plain.
After our project we had library! Ms. Rosenthal came to our classroom to read us a story. This one was about Passover too, but was about a family seder. After the story, we walked to the library to check out books to take home. It was a great day!
Grade 2 started their day off with some awesome news; they were going to learn about the last letter of the Alef Bet!
So they got to work straight away, opening up their workbooks to page 91, and they practiced with vowels along with the letter tzadee.
Next, the second grade class went to Kehillah and had a great snack of goldfish and water after they said all of their prayers.
The class went to T'filah where they did their normal prayers. Today, they learned about Passover and all of the plagues!
When they got back to the classroom, the second graders had a fun time drawing Israel and learning about the culture of the cities as well as how to pronounce names correctly.
Finally, they played a game of tic-tac-toe where they could show off all the words they’d learned over the course of this year at Hebrew school! Everyone was a winner, because everyone knew all of the words!
