Hebrew:

 

Gimel - Students learned to read the Ma Nishtanah by studying and quizzing each other on flashcards with the words of the song and then reading the text. Some students also learned to read the ten plagues in Hebrew. When we return after the Pesach break, students will learn to read the V’ahavta prayer.

Hey -Students learned to read the Ma Nishanah and practiced singing the song together.  They also practiced reading the V’ahavta prayer. First, they reviewed flash cards with the words of the prayer and then they read the text of the prayer.

VavStudents created matzah covers that depicted the order of the Seder written in Hebrew and illustrations of the fourteen steps of the Seder. Hopefully, these covers will be a nice addition to your Pesach Seder!

 

Experiential Education:

We had another great week in Experiential Education!

This week, we had a fully immersive cooking experience for Pesach. We started class reviewing information about Pesach. After, students were given a cup of flour, a cup of water, a plate, and a fork. Students then learned that for matzoh to be kosher for Pesach, it must be prepared and cooked in less than 18 minutes. Students then started to make the dough, flatten, and poke holes in the dough as the timer began. Once students finished their preparation, we placed the dough on a cookie sheet and cooked it at the oven’s maximum temperature until the matzoh was ready or the timer almost ran out. While the matzoh was cooling, students tasted fresh charoset made of apple, pear, coconut, raisins, and grape juice. At the end of class, students ate their matzoh and discussed how it tasted, if they would have done anything differently and if they preferred our homemade matzoh or store-bought ones.
