This Week in 2nd Grade
October 21, 2018
After our Morning Meeting, we reviewed and learned more about Shabbat. Ask your child why it is traditional to eat two challah on Shabbat and what it represents. We made Creation Wheels to help us remember the story of creation and the purpose of Shabbat. He rested by admiring all of his hard work and creativity and gearing up for another week ahead. As a very special treat today, we got to bake our own individual challah with Mrs. Kite! They smelled delicious!
Back in our room, we generated a list of mitzvot that 2nd graders can do to make the world a better place, one mitzvah at a time! Ask your child what s/he can do this week.
Finally (can you believe we had time for more?), we learned our first Hebrew letter, BET! Ask your child to show you how to write a bet. If they need a prompt, remind them to kick the ball, dive down, take your pencil out of the water, kick the ball again even farther, dot! Next week we'll learn the letter TAV.
HELP TAKE CARE OF YOUR FAMILY'S (OR NEIGHBOR/FRIEND'S) PET.
Good luck to everyone attempting the challenge!
We loved this rhyming "Challah"-day story while we worked on our Creation Wheels!
Look how many of us are meeting the Mitzvah Madness Challenge!
We can't wait to have the whole wall covered with our mitzvah certificates!
A very busy morning with zero board space left!
