Well, another fabulous day at the Cohen School has come and gone. We continued our conversation this week about taking care of the earth. We learned about the concept of "Bal tashchit" which means "do not destroy or waste". We also discussed how God created the earth and expected humans to take care of it. We came up with many ways that we, as humans, can work to take care of and not destroy the earth. We then created our own tree to remind us how to be conscientious about the environment in which we live.
We also had a visit from Matan, who talked about how Tu B'Shvat is celebrated in Israel, and about ways that Israelis conserve land and resources.
In Hebrew, we learned the letter "Ayin". Students should practice their reading by completing lesson 14 in the tiyulim app.
I'm Sari Guttin, the Grade 2/3 Teacher and the Educational Director. I am thrilled to be here in this wonderful community to share my love of learning and Jewish values with my students!
