Well, last week was full of costume parades to wonderful Purim music, groggers, hamentaschen, and craziness.
This week I am organizing Passover music and started teaching Ma Nishtana.
WOW! Where did this school year go? I love teaching music from the Hagada. It is fun and I find it interesting while it certainly enhances the seders. A couple of my private students are good singers and we enjoy singing together. It will be fun teaching them song of the tunes!
At TBO there will be a family education day for my 6th grade class which I am starting to organize. We will be teaching the parents about the differences between Ashkenazic and Sefardic seders, as well as singing some songs from the Hagada. I will be integrating getting the kids ready for their home seders and preparing for education day April 1st.
I have one school opened this week. I know that many students watch You Tube, so I showed them Passover videos from many of the singing groups like The Fountainheads, Six13, Shlomones, and a couple more. Next week is Hagada time.
Share with me some of your Passover Seder traditions and let me know if they are Ashkenazic or Sefardic!
If you are on Spring Break, enjoy!!
