What Did We Learn This Week?
Tefillah / Class Meeting
In one of our class meetings, we talked about our grade level mitzvah project, the Atlanta Food Bank, and learned about a food bank in Israel called Leket. Some of our tzedakah this year will be sent to Israel to help this food bank. During our other class meeting, we read Mitzvah Magician and discussed how we can be responsible citizens.
In Tefillah, we learned about the Shema and how we have to be quiet when saying this prayer. We talked about what we hear when we are silent and how we can cover our eyes or put our fingers into a shin over our head when we pray.
Dear 2nd grade parents,
The letter - א aleph in cursive Hebrew was our focus this past week. We worked in our Ariot books, practiced reading and completed our first spelling challenge.
