In Jewish Studies, we have been studying Pesach and learning the Hagaddah in class. We look forward to showing you what we know at our Model Seder on Monday, April 2nd at 1:30. Mark your calendars to join us! The entire seder will be in Hebrew, and we are so proud of our accomplishments! If your child wants to use his/her beautiful pillowcase at the model seder, then please send a pillow with him/her on Monday morning. Make sure you write their name on it! We will put the pillowcases on and have them ready for the seder.
In Math this week, we reviewed the concepts learned in Units 1 – 5 and took a cumulative test. During a very challenging problem solving activity, we discussed the strategies of “process of elimination” and “trial and error.” Here are some pictures of the kids working hard and using their brain muscles!
In Reading this week, we learned about firefighters. We read a story in our class reading book and enjoyed books from the public library. The students also had a chance to earn up to 5 white slips for our Great Behavior Jar by answering 5 Research Questions. This is the second week that we’ve had extra credit questions, and the kids seem to enjoy them. I love learning new facts too!
Today, while I was reading aloud our book 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (which has been adapted for children), we were discussing the south pole and Antarctica. When I pointed to our world map, several students came up and started exploring it on their own. This was not a staged photo! : )
In preparation for Monday’s seder, we tie-dyed our pillowcases on Thursday, and it was so much fun!
Have a restful weekend,
Morah Rivka & Miss Stein
