M was all ready for his lesson after morning exercises, and wanted "Shiur shel midbakot" -- a sticker lesson. So I pulled out some workbooks that my aunt sent him from Israel, with different shapes and objects to be sorted, counted, etc.:
Then we had a different sort of lesson -- kinesthetic learning. First, we moved back to the rug, and I showed him how to sing/dance "Yemina, yemina, smola, smol, lefanim, akhora" (Right, right, left, left, forward, back). Ran through that twice, then he had enough. So back to the table, where I showed him the compass points on the world map placemat:
We talked about North and South America, and reviewed the names of the other continents as well.
I look forward to following this lesson up next week, when we shake the Lulav in all directions!
