What a great week in Jewish Studies!
In Torah, we learned about the second day of Creation. God created the sky. The kids had lots of questions, and it was a lively discussion!
In Parashat Haye Sarah, we talked about the death of Sarah at age 127, and how Abraham purchased a burial plot. We also discussed how he decided to find a wife for his son, Isaac. Through the story of Rebekah, we learned to take care of our animals, and to feed them before feeding ourselves.
In the unit of Tov Bakita, we learned about the tools we use in order to study Hebrew. We use songs, stories, holiday traditions, etc. We also studied past tense verbs in grammar.
On Tuesday in General Studies, we discussed the history of Veterans’ Day. We even integrated math into our discussion by calculating the lengths of several wars.
In Language Arts, we studied ABC Order. We practiced the skill of alphabetizing words, first with Veterans’ Day vocabulary, and then with our own, personal spelling words! The flash cards that I’m sending home today in your child’s white folder have been put into ABC order.
We also put solar system words into ABC Order!
Before the students chose Read-to-Self or Read-to-Someone in Daily 5, we had mini lessons on Setting. It was great to see the kids searching for the settings of their own books, and then sharing the information with the class!
In Math class, we had so much fun playing The Renaming Game! This activity prepares the kids for regrouping ones and tens. When we reached our target number of 100, you should have heard the cheer!
