Mrs. Schleicher's Schmooze

Weekly Note from Mrs. Schleicher
It really was snowing, even though it's hard to see!! This week we were able to take part in helping to develop a Google Expedition using google cardboard, an I phone, and a Google App. The 2nd graders visually visited several biomes that we will be studying about next trimester: desert, tundra, tropical rainforest, savannah, and more! It was a very cool experience where the kids were immersed in the lesson and felt like they were actually in each of those habitats walking around!
Have a wonderful, long weekend and Shabbat Shalom!! Stacy
What Did We Learn This Week?
Dear 2nd grade parents,
In Hebrew class, this past week, we took a deep breath and reviewed all the letters we have learned so far:
א, ו, י, נ, ן, ג, ה, ר, ב, ס, ש, ח, ק, ד, כ, ך, ז, מ, ם, ל
We practiced all the Hebrew cursive letters we know, using smart board activities and work sheets. We even took a Hebrew spelling test.
Here is a great activity to review Hebrew at home:
2/15- No school, mid winter break
2/19- all school Kabbalat Shabbat
2/21- Mother/Son Bowling and Father/Daughter Dance
2/21- play practice, 10-12
2/24-2nd and 3rd grade play practice
2/28- play practice 10-1
3/4-end of trimester 2 and noon dismissal for students (Kabbalat Shabbat is for faculty/staff only today)
4/19- our class' Passover Seder, 8:15 AM
