## Language Arts

This week we learned about writing with adjectives to make a clearer picture of what we are saying. For example, The cute baby has pretty eyes. Also, we are learning about the articles a, an, and the and how to use them in a sentence. We took another reading test which went home for you to sign this week. In cursive, it's all about the tow truck letters- o, w, v, and b! We are having fun collaging our pictures in our autobiography books!

## Math

We learned the basics about fractions this week. We kick started the week using candy that we saw was divided into halves, fourths, sixths, etc. Then, we learned the terms numerator and denominator and that fractions are a part of a whole. We had fun "making pizza" fractions too!

## Science

This week we learned all about vertebrates, animals with backbones. We classified them into mammals, reptiles, fish, birds, and amphibians. We read books about each group of animals and then listed 4 important facts about that group. We will have a test next Friday over these groups and will be reviewing next week.

## Hebrew

יוֹם הָעַצְמָאוּת (YOM HA-AH-TZMAUT) = Israel’s Independence Day was our main topic this week.

The excitement is in the air as we are finishing the last pages in our “ARIOT KOTEV” book.

We just finished learning all the cursive letters in the Hebrew alphabet. MAZAL-TOV!

Please use the following link to practice and review all the cursive Hebrew letters we know:
