Kindergarten students are working their way through the Hebrew alef-bet. With each new letter that is introduced, students learn to recognize the letter, write the letter, pronounce the letter, and identify Hebrew words that include that letter. Through this practice, their vocabulary grows by leaps and bounds. Recently they learned the letter ל (pronounced lamed). One word that begins with this letter is לְטָאָה (pronounced l-ta-a) and means lizard. The students constructed their own lizards out of paper and took them for a walk out in nature. The לטאות (lizards) climbed trees, hid in bushes, and did all manner of lizardy things. Ask a PJA kindergarten student what letter they learned this week!
