We have started to learn a new unit about the Negev area of Israel. We learned about the population who lives there, its geography and cities.
We also learned about the Bedouin lives and culture. We had a “tent” in class, drank tea and ate pita. We practiced the speaking skill by having a dialogue with the Bedouin about what we want to eat, drink and going on a trip. We learned new vocabulary items such as tent, meat, trip, camel, start, guide and more. Then we wrote about our “visit” in the desert.
As a part of our unit about the Negev, the 6th graders planned a 2 days trip. They searched for 3 places to visit a day, places to eat and a place to stay for the night. They also had to find some information about the places they visited, such as Eilat, Beer Sheva, the Ramon Crater, a Bedouin tent, the Air force museum, Masada, David stream, the dead sea and more.
The projects were presented in class in Hebrew, using vocabulary we have learned. During working on this task the students practiced the reading, writing and speaking skill.
After presenting, we gave each other a positive feedback, emphasizing the good things about the trip and mentioning what was missing and could be done differently.
The students worked according to schedule and a guideline, and their final projects were serious and impressive.
In Hebrew class we learn about the Negev and today we had a Bedouin tent in class. We drank tea and ate Pita with Za’atar . We learned about the Bedouin habits (where they live, what they eat, their warm hospitality) and practiced new vocabulary items such as tent ( אוהל), guide (מדריך), meat (בשר), salad (סלט) and more. We practiced speaking skill – the students said what they want to drink and eat in Hebrew.
This week we learned a new song and also learned new words from it. We practiced the words (day, night gift, the seasons, soul, give, life, earth) with quizlet and also took a quiz. The kids did great!
We invited Omer the shinshin to our classroom to play for us while we sang.
Today we had an activity for sukkot.
After the holiday we will start to learn a new program, “Haverim B’ivrit”.
