We hope you had a wonderful Passover! This was a very productive week of school.
In Jewish Studies, we prepared for Yom Ha’Atzmaut, by studying the date and traditions of the holiday. We compared and contrasted the birthday of Israel with our own birthdays.
We will be celebrating Yom Ha’Atzmaut next Thursday. Please have your child wear blue and white.
In Parashat Shemini, we discussed kosher and non-kosher animals. We also talked about the kosher symbols.
In Math class, we continued working on multiplication and division. The kids are doing a wonderful job of seeing the relationship between “families of numbers!” The students took a test, which is coming home today in their white folders.
Today, we discussed another way to write a division problem, and I explained that they will use that form in the future for long division. Then, we created a silly representation of that form, by having students become the divisor, dividend, and quotient!
In Reading class, we learned about Helen Keller, and had a “word hunt,” searching for vocabulary words in the story.
We also studied poetry this week! Since it is National Poetry Month, we’ll continue to read, write, and enjoy poems throughout April.
Since there is no school on Monday, we look forward to seeing the students on Tuesday. If your child is in the Talent Show, please remember to send in any music they’ll be using on Tuesday!
