This week we started a new unit on Passover. We began by sharing different traditions our families have, what we are looking forward to about Passover, and the special foods we eat. During this unit, we will be using a homemade Haggadah and looking through each section in detail. We will continue to dissect the Haggadah throughout this unit.
HTM with Inbal
HTM with Sharone
On Saturday in HTM, students responded to commandments focused on several familiar nouns (masculine and feminine) in their plural form along with the following agreeing adjectives: ktanim/small (plural masc.), ktanot (plural fem.), g’dolim (plural, masc.), g’dolot (plural fem.) It was a little confusing at first, but students got the hang of it after some practice. On Tuesday, we started our Pesach/Passover unit! For this HTM unit, students will engage with the Passover Hebrew vocabulary that is featured in the “Ma Nishtana” (The Four Questions), the items featured on the Seder Plate as well as other Hebrew words associated with Passover. This past Tuesday, we practiced singing the first part of the Ma Nishtana and focused on the following Hebrew words: lailah, leillot/night(s), matzah, chametz, yerakot (vegetables) and maror. We used visuals and pretend matzah. This coming Saturday, we will practice saying the blessing before eating the matzah, eat real matzah and continue learning the Ma Nishtana.
