Each class was able to work on some Hebrew! Third and fourth graders learned about Chanukkah as they read from their "Jewish Holidays" book and practiced various Hebrew words connected to the holiday! Students will have a quiz this Sunday!
The fifth graders spent time working in their Hebrew books and engaged in conversation about Thanksgiving and it's similarities to Jewish celebrations and Jewish education at the start of the day! They compared Hebrew words and talked about "final" letters! Ask you fifth grader which Hebrew letters have a final letter!
Sixth grade spent some time talking about ways to improve their classroom experience, talking about plans for working together for a successful year, and encouraging a positive learning environment. I'm very excited to see what the sixth grade group does with all of their potential! Students also worked in their history of American Jews curriculum. Homework is to read chapter 3 from their "Let Freedom Ring" textbook.
The seventh graders again worked in Hebrew and read this week's Torah portion, Parshat Hashuvah- Vayishlach. Students also continued working on Chapter One from their holocaust book, discussing this difficult topic as a group.
We look forward to seeing everyone this Sunday! If you haven't signed up for a Parent Teacher Conference, please contact me or your child's teacher! Thanks!
