Yesterday it was Gabbie’s turn to bring home the Estimation Jar. She was to put objects in the jar between the amount of 10 and 30 and her friends at school will estimate how many objects there are. We decided to use buttons, and Gabbie put in 19. She then had to draw a picture of her objects.
Today, she brought home a special card for me. Since she is learning Hebrew dates at school, I told her yesterday that 11 Cheshvan is my Hebrew birthday. She remembered!
Although I’ve always known my Hebrew birth date, I never realized that I share this date with the yahrzeit of Rachel Imeinu. Apparently, this day is considered by some to be the Jewish Mother’s Day. Gabbie learned all about Rachel today and told me immediately after giving me my card that she had learned something else important about this date. It’s amazing how much she is learning!
