I haven’t posted many of these lately, but we’re still doing them. Naomi’s illustrations are more of the stick-person variety than the detailed scenarios she was sketching before, but they are still cheerful and fun. Today, she wanted to write her own narration – I wouldn’t let her for the main narration (you can see my lousy handwriting down below), but she added her own caption on the left-hand side.
(the baby carriage floating over the king’s Torah isn’t really floating – it’s in the background)
She got the thing about needing “three things – a chumash, a gemara and a mishna” is from My First Parsha Reader, which said every Jewish home needs these things as part of the mitzvah of writing a sefer Torah. And then Naomi started correcting me and said, “Every sentence must begin with a capital letter [I write in all-caps, but make the first letter bigger]… and end with a pyramid.” She meant period, but I drew a little pyramid over the period after Mishna, just to be funny.
Anyway, I am SO proud of her handwriting… isn’t it beautiful?! Her spelling is also much improved, although she’s still a bit lazy sometimes, even with words we’ve done before. Some words in here would have given her a very hard time, even just a couple of months ago (people, come, listen, hear). I didn’t correct any spelling on this (babys, shod, evry). The point was learning parsha, and parsha she has learned.
Kol HaKavod to you both! The narration looks great and yours isn't too bad either (lol)!ReplyDelete
