This week in Jewish Studies, we studied the seventh day of Creation (Shabbat). We learned that it’s called Shabbat because God rested on this day. In Parashat Mishpatim, we talked about the laws that God gave to the Jewish people. For example: giving Tzedakah, taking care of orphans, and protecting each other from dangerous situations.
We’re continuing to create Tu B’Shevat projects using the app called Pixie. We finished studying the prayer, Ashrei. Next week, I’ll start testing the kids on this prayer, so please practice at home.
We also work in reading groups this week!
This week in Math, we studied money, which tied in perfectly with Presidents’ Day! Please see Monday’s blogpost for more information.
We were all so proud of the kids’ musical performance Thursday night at Sea to Shining Sea! 🙂
Our Mystery Reader today was Blake’s mom! We loved having Blake’s sister spend time with us too!
Next week, we will be doing some fun, hands-on, creative learning stations, in order to study Presidents’ Day! Here, Mrs. Freedman described the activities to the children, who seemed very excited!
We also did a fun, Presidents’ Day activity today during Library class, with Mrs. Hallett. This research and technology-based project is ongoing, so we will give you more details soon.
This was an exciting Spirit Week! Thank you for all of your involvement and participation with the costumes!
