This past Sunday in Grade 2, we read the book “The Giving Tree.” We talked about the importance of being grateful and how the way we ask for something can impact the person we are asking. We applied this to the structure of the prayer service that we attend every week, because in the Amidah prayer we first thank God for what we are grateful for and then we put in personal prayers and requests. We did a little art activity where we talked about things that we are grateful for and then we came up with personal prayers of what we wanted to ask God for.
In Hebrew we learned the new letter “Tet” which makes a “T” sound. We played a very fun game of Jeopardy that tested our Hebrew letter, sound, and word knowledge. It was a close game but the boy’s team ended up pulling ahead and winning.
