Reading and playing
Today E joined us for a literacy lesson. We played with several sets of Hebrew letters, identifying them and making words. E really got into Et Le'ayet! He asked for the names of all the pictures on the templates, and was very interested in the letters as well. He is so funny -- he knows the words he is supposed to use in conversation (yes, no, thank you etc), but thinks it is a great game to refuse to say them. Every now and again he will slip his cover, and imitate M's talking, though. I think he is getting it! He also likes to sing the Hebrew songs that he knows. After the lesson, we all walked to the playground, and E and M were singing "Hiney Ma Tov uMa Na'im" while walking together:
Hiney ma tov uma naim...
...shevet (lekhet) akhim gam yakhad!
And here they are at the playground, enjoying the balmy November sun:
