A Couple Things We Enjoy

There are just a couple of things we've really enjoyed recently that I haven't mentioned before. One is that we're learning two or three new Hebrew songs per week. My favorite Jewish children's songbook (that I've seen so far) is The New Children's Songbook by Velvel Pasternak (not so new having first been published in 1981). It has a little of everything - shabbos songs, songs for the yamim tovim, everyday songs - all appropriate for early childhood Hebrew learners.

Another thing we've enjoyed is a question/answer game called Professor Noggin's Life in the Ocean Card Game. It has nice illustrations of all kinds of sea creatures, with sets of easy questions and sets of hard questions. We went through the whole deck three times today. :) We don't use the actual games rules; we just enjoy identifying the pictures and answering the questions. Nothing original, but Amirah loves playing with it.

That's all for now! But of course, the night is young...
