YOM HULEDET SAMEACH, ISRAEL!!
The greatest gifts you can give your children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence. Denis Waitley- Motivational speaker
Yom Huledet Sameach to Israel! The children in our ECC celebrated Yom Ha'atzmaut (Israel's Independence Day) exploring the colors of the flag, re-creating a "shuk" in their classroom, as well as learning Hebrew words and songs. They also baked and decorated birthday cakes, in honor of Israel's 67th birthday, a wonderful (and delicious!) connection to math and science as the children experiment with different textures and ingredients! The highlight of our week was the school wide field day that included a parade, dancing and more! We are looking forward to joining the entire Beth David community this Sunday to culminate this joyous occasion!
As parents and educators, we empower children when we encourage them to try new things. The deepest, most meaningful learning occurs when we create "a-ha" moments! Those are the opportunities for true independence!
Sixty seven years ago, the dream of the Jewish people became a reality. The entire ECC staff is honored to plant in our children the seeds of pride, love, and belonging to Israel, our Jewish Homeland.
