SHA Elementary engaged in a thorough exploration of Tu B’shavat and Brachot. Students immersed themselves in learning about Israeli agriculture, participating in Tree Yoga with Yoga Instructor Pia Shlomo, creating edible designs using the Sheva Mimin, and putting their Brachot knowledge to the test in a Grand Brachot Fair. The Brachot Fair was led by Morah Shaina’s 4th grade class. The students brainstormed, researched, and set up booths and Brachot trivia at each station. They also taught about the Shevan Minim (the 7 foods of Israel) and what each one of us can learn from each of the foods. It was an exciting day enjoyed by all!
SHA's Early Childhood Center took part in a hands-on interactive Tu B'Shevat Sensory Experience. Children enjoyed yoga, planting trees, artistic expression using branches and recycled bottles, pressing olive oil, juicing grapes and pomegranates, tasting barely cookies and grinding wheat.
Tu B’shvat interactive learning was happening all month at SHA! In Pre School art class, the students created beautiful “tees” out of clay. Our Elementary classes learned about agriculture in Israel and planted "chocolate mint" plants. They also worked on their “Ki Adam Etz Hasadeh” project, where they researched and displayed the inner meanings of the Passuk. Middle School students participated in an interactive workshop on “Ki Adam Etz Hasadeh,” and how they can apply the passuk to their lives. Science class included lots of plant experiments and tips on planting too! Pre K learned lots of interesting new recipes, as moms came to visit and teach about the 7 minim and share a family recipe
Silverstein Hebrew Academy enjoyed an incredible multi-sensory Thanksgiving Experience in preschool. The children followed a recipe to make delicious pumpkin pie, constructed bird feeders, participated in a drumming circle, acted out the story of Thanksgiving through Yoga, and enjoyed a fall exploration room to celebrate the culmination of our fall and Thanksgiving units.
Middle School students reflected on all they have to be thankful for, living freely as Jews in America. This day of thanks concluded with expressing their creativity by decorating turkey cupcakes. Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you to Morah Lipsker, Debra, Lilly & Aleeza for leading today's program of thanks.
Thanksgiving was celebrated with a grand feast, pumpkin pies & thanksgiving themed cookies. The students reflected on all they have in their lives and the importance of showing appreciation. In continuation of our i-Can theme of the year, students then listed their reflections on "i-can give thanks" boards. Thank you to PTA for sponsoring the pumpkin pies & desserts. And thank you to the moms who came (all dressed up!) to help serve the Thanksgiving feast.
What an incredible Tishrai Experience! Students participated in many different stations that gave them opportunities for hands on and interactive learning & review on the laws and customs of the Chagim.
Tooooo! Tooooo! Toooooo! The sounds of the shofar blowing could be heard throughout SHA as the students participated in a Shofar factory workshop, led by Rabbi Shofar Man! Students learned about how a shofar is made and its role on the Chag of Rosh Hashanah. Throughout the presentation students helped cure, saw, drill, and finish a ram's horn to create a genuine kosher Shofar. During this “hands-on” workshop the students were taught how to sound and practice the traditional sequence of notes blown on Rosh Hashanah. At the end of the presentation each class was given one Shofar to keep in their classroom as a memento of this exciting workshop.
