IBECC Students Search for Circles

While learning about Rosh Hashanah, children at the Iris Berman Early Childhood Center at Suburban Torah in Livingston were interested in the concept of the cycle of the year. The teachers likened it to a circle: that the year doesn’t have a finite end, but ends and begins again right away. The children noticed items for the Rosh Hashanah table that are circular in shape such as the round challah and apples, and were excited to search the classroom for other circular items. As a Reggio Emilia-inspired preschool, it was exciting to see the children take the lead with their interest, meshing Jewish culture with mathematical concepts.
