This week in Jewish Studies, we read two Parashot, Parashat B’har and Parashat B’hukotai. We talked about giving the land and crops a rest every seven years; the Jubilee tradition every 50 years; and the benefits and punishments of following God’s rules.
We digitally “visited” the Kotel and wrote notes about our wishes.
Shavuot is coming soon! We studied the different names for the holiday, and read a story about receiving the Torah. Remember that our Bikkurim Celebration is taking place next Friday, 5/22. Please have your child wear all white, and bring a small basket of fruits and/or veggies. If you would like the basket returned to you, please label it with your name!
In Math class this week, we studied fractions in a group.
After a math test this week, we enjoyed a spontaneous moment of reading together!
In Library with Mrs. Hallett and Mrs. Freedman, the kids have been doing biography research, using books and kid-friendly websites. After gathering their information, they have begun writing their reports in General Studies. Here are some of the students sharing their Biographies with their classmates.
We enjoyed meeting with you during our conferences today, and look forward to meeting with the rest of you next week!
