Hebrew Alphabet & Bible Notebook

Last week for Day 36 of MFW 1st Grade, we took a look at the Hebrew and Greek alphabets so that the children could see the languages the Bible was originally written in.  For dinner, we had macaroni and cheese made with these:

I used the recipe on the back of the package (modified the types of cheese, though, to what I had on hand) and it was really good! 

Today, for Day 41, we started our Bible Notebooks.  I felt this was something that Cupcake and Snickerdoodle could do also, so I gave them each one of those 6" x 9" writing tablets (plain pages) and had them decorate the cover similar to Sweet Potato's.  They were all very proud of their work!

Now that we are back in our school room (after being back at the dining room table temporarily) here is a picture of the big board we use each day.
On here we have our mini white-board for the date and Number of the Day, our Menu for the "Sunshine Cafe" plus receipts, 100 chart, Jewish Calendar (I had to replace the one that came with the curriculum), ABC chart, Days of the Week, Months of the Year, Calendar, Reading Chart, Proverb of the Week (2 weeks' worth), and Books of the Bible chart.  It was really handy when we schooled in the dining room because it can be folded up and stashed behind a cabinet, but now it's propped up on our 4' x 6' white board.  I got this idea from someone else online (sorry, I don't remember who it was or I'd give the credit.)  We will probably do a new one once we start Adventures in the fall.  I am also thinking of getting a second one to use for our timeline.  Anyone have any good ideas for timelines?  The walls in our school room are concrete and it's hard to tape things to them.

Where did you find the Hebrew Alefbet soup? I've been trying to find it everywhere?
