Third grade has just started to adventure from Ã¢â‚¬Å“UrÃ¢â‚¬Â to Canaan (Israel) with Avram!! We read all about how he interacted with God and who he brought with him on his adventure. We canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t wait to see if he makes it all the way to his destination, and who he encounters along the way!!!
WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve also talked about how a Sukkah is really a Ã¢â‚¬Å“Shelter of PeaceÃ¢â‚¬Â and we talked about when we feel most safe and what we may want protection from. We looked at the night-time prayer of “Hashkiveinu” and talked about the language of Shalom as well as how God guards, shields, protects, and saves people and spreads a Shelter of Peace over us. Students also brought up the fact that Israel is a Shelter of Peace for many people, and we are all looking forward to spending the next week in our own Sukkat Shlomecha with friends and family.
Coming up, I look forward to continuing our conversation about Ã¢â‚¬Å“Sukkat Shlomecha,Ã¢â‚¬Â as well as reading more in the Torah and even starting an exciting integration project with what they are learning in General Studies – we will learn about the Israeli map and landforms that are in Israel!! IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m so excited for your children to explore some of my favorite places in Israel and learn more about what the land has to offer.
Chag Sukkot Sameach, everyone!!
