Happy new year

27 September 2011

This week in school was really only half a week. The rest of the week we will be off due to Rosh haShana, the Jewish New Year.

The main things we did this week were;

Torah – We studied the first part of Gan Eden, how God created Adam and Eve, and about the forbidden fruit. This was a LOT of reading with a lot of difficult words in Hebrew. Prof and Snoopy thought about what it would be like to meet Adam and Eve, and what Adam and Eve would tell them. Then they also wrote an answer, and drew a picture of how they imagine Gan Eden.

Science – We continued to study the fall. This time we learned about how to measure temperature, where to do it and why it is important to do it on the same time and place every day. We also learned how to dress in different temperatures. Hugsy drew a snake on the 0-10 degrees (C). She must have mininterpreted my scarf ;)

In Hebrew we worked on read alouds with Snoopy and handwriting with prof. We also did some math and English.

Happy new year to you all!



  1. Just curious regarding the science lessons; how you plan to teach the children about evolution etc later on? I don’t know your stand point on the matter with respect to your faith, but I suppose evolution is something that will come up at some point, one way or the other.

  2. They will study evolution eventually.. but not as a fact (because it
    is not a fact) but as a theory (that we partly do not believe in) Prof already bumps into it every now and then because he is reading a lot of science books from the library.
