We have been learning about food last term, and our follow up topic is:

At the greengrocer.

The children have been introduced to the old israeli currency (Lirot) and the modern Israeli currency the shekel and in today's lesson children used a calculator and mental arithmetic activities related to currency in Ivrit.

Here is some of the vocabulary that we have learnt so far:  

         Lira(former Israeli currency) - לִירה                          

 

shekel    The new Shekel  - שֶׁקֶל חָדָשׁ

 

The children enjoyed learning to count in hundreds and practising  to write "big numbers " in Ivrit.

Shalom from year 1

shalom colorido

This year your child will acquire an exciting new skill - reading and speaking modern Hebrew (Ivrit). There are a number of ways you can participate in your child's Hebrew learning, even if you don't know Hebrew yourself.

Try to express your interest, praise your child's achievements, and motivate your child to learn, and perhaps each week ask him/her to share a few new letters or words they have learnt...

AB aleph bet01

  In class the children enjoy learning the ALEPH BEIT letters in a variety of activities, like our popular "aleph beit" song, Yoga Aleph beit games.

In today's lesson the children explored making letters out of different materials like play-dough, paint and sticky foam squares.

Here are some photos for you to enjoy.
