My daughter has been mentioning that her school, which is not in walking distance, is having learning at ten at night for students at the school for Shavuot, including for the first graders.

I never did post these pictures but we did some salt play for Parshat Vaaera. Letter tracing in salt (in a broken lunch container). Also used to play with toy animals. Gluing salt to paper.

  This week’s parsha tie ins were a big hit with my 2.5 year old and I thought I’d share. The picture is of his favorite one, which was sorting lentils. I gave him a spice container, funnel, and three types of lentils and let him layer them however he wanted. He was super excited […]

Parshat Noach animal sugar cubes

Noach seems to get alot of food play on this blog. Here’s a picture reminder: These were sugar cubes. We’ve lately made chocolates using these same molds.

Korach and teaching values

22 Jun
