In Torah this week, we talked about the punishment that God gave to Adam and the woman for eating the forbidden fruit; and to the snake for convincing them to do it.
We continued our unit on Yom Ha’Atzmaut by studying the special prayer for Israel, singing songs, and discussing what we could be doing if we were living in Israel.
This week in Math class, we began studying Picture Graphs and Bar Graphs. We learned that there are different ways that data can be displayed.
This week, we studied our final Wordly Wise lesson! The students should be proud of how hard they worked, and of all the new vocabulary words they learned!
In Language Arts, we have finished our narrative writing, and have moved on to expository writing. Ms. Wulbern and I modeled the prewriting and drafting of a sample report on leopards, and now the students are working on their own animal reports.
Here is a Science update from Mrs. Jaffa:
We have been working on different land formations, and how weathering and erosion create the types of land we find on Earth. On Monday, to finish our studies, we went over composite, shield, and cinder volcanoes. Each student was asked to make a type of volcano with all of its parts. After asking each student about their volcano, we simulated an eruption. Here are some pictures from that day.
Our Mystery Reader today was Maya’s dad! Not only did he read us two fun books, he also demonstrated his ability to mimic the voices of characters like Mickey Mouse, Popeye, and Cookie Monster!
We would like to acknowledge that tomorrow will be Armed Forces Day.
There will be no school on Monday due to a Professional Development Day for the teachers. There will also be no school next Friday due to Parent/Teacher Conferences. We will enjoy some fun and educational activities during our upcoming three-day week!
