We had a great full week back at school! Mazel Tov to all the kids in our class who were in the play. We LOVED the performance our class saw on Tuesday. It was truly fantastic!
We are looking forward to our class Seder next week and we look forward to sharing the interactive experience with you. Please read the Reuse-It Recycle project email I sent out on Thursday. I am also sending a printed copy home in the Friday Folder.
I hope all of you have a fantastic weekend and Happy Spring!!

What Did We Learn This Week?
Dear 2nd grade parents,
This week was all about Passover— פסח ; we read the holiday story, sang holiday songs, learned related vocabulary and practiced for the Seder.
Here is some Passover vocabulary to review:
קְעָרָה- Passover plate (KE-AH-RAH)
חָמֵץ- not kosher for Passover (CHAMETZ)
לֵיל הַסֵּדֶר- the night of the SEDER= order (LEYL HASEDER)
הַגָּדָה- book of telling the story of Passover (HAGADAH)
עֶשֶׂר מַכּוֹת- 10 plagues (ESER MAKOT)
In our Ariot book, we covered the letters פ (PEY), פ (FEY) and ף (FEY SOFIT).
