Story Time

Next, I will do a screen share with a reading of the story, Is It Passover Yet? by Chris Barash and illustrated by Alessandra Psacharopulo. For preschool-aged students, reading a story is beneficial to their understanding of the topics and also promotes language development, acquisition skills, and literacy. 


Hebrew Language and/or Israel  

Today we will discuss the Hebrew word for the upcoming holiday Pesach!

In Hebrew it is written as: פֶּסַח and is transliterated as Pesaḥ. In English, we call this holiday Passover.

Art Project

Through art, we are able to explore colors, texture, fine motor skills, and creativity through a Jewish lens. This multi-sensory approach speaks to students of all learning styles and helps students to retain the day's lesson. Don't forget to share your artwork in the Shorashim Forum if you want to!
