Weekly Note from Mrs. Schleicher
What a week! From the Lion King performance, to baking hamantaschen, to the Purim festivities, and finally to selling our awesome baked goods at the Second Grade Bake Sale for our Food Bank Mitzvah Project we all agree that this was an awesome (and busy) week of school! Thanks so much to Laura Schilling, Randi Steuer, and Janine Peck for helping our class make the delicious hamantaschen! Thank you Randi, for also making the dough for us! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
Shabbat Shalom!! Stacy
What Did We Learn This Week?
Dear 2nd grade parents,
We concluded the Purim unit with a great Purim carnival and worked on our holiday worksheets.
We continued with ARIOT and worked on the letter פ, ף (PEY and FAY)
These are the 4 mitzvahs (commandments) for PURIM- challenge your child to do all four:
1. Reading the Megilah מְגִלָּה
2. Exchanging gifts of food מִשְׁלוֹחַ מָנוֹת
3. Giving Tzedakah to the poor צְדָקָה
4. Having a Purim feast סְעוּדַת פּוּרִים
