What Did We Learn This Week?
This week it was so much fun learning about how rocks are formed. We learned about the rock cycle and explored metamorphic rocks! We had the most fun "making" metamorphic rock using Starburst. We had to use LOTS of pressure and heat and I think the kids will never forget how metamorphic rock is formed!!
Dear 2nd grade parents,
Mazal-Tov to all 2nd graders and their families for a wonderful KABALAT HASIDUR ceremony!
Our introduction to the holiday of Chanukah started with reading the historical story, few pages each day.
We sang Chanukah songs, learned holiday vocabulary like:
סְבִיבוֹן- spinning top
דְּמֵי-חֲנֻכָּה - gelt
כַּד שֶׁמֶן- jag of oil
In our ARIOT KOTEV book, we worked on the cursive letters כּ, כ, ך (KAF, CHAF and final CHAF).

Not only are students using technology but they are also learning to build it. Through a global initiative known as Hour of Code, students all over the globe were encouraged to participate in one hour of coding throughout the week of December 8th. Parents, students, and faculty of The Davis Academy participated in this global event. In your child’s Friday folder, you will find a certificate honoring the students for their participation. Computer Science does not have to be limited to school. Students and adults can continue to practice their coding skills by going to code.org to locate additional resources and activities.
