What Did We Learn This Week?
Dear 2nd grade Parents,
This week we practiced our class routines, writing, reading fluency and saying our full name with an appropriate greeting:
You may want to ask your child:
מָה הַשֵּׁם שֶׁלְּךָ?- What is your name? (ma hashem shelchah?)
מָה שֵׁם הַמִּשְׁפָּחָה שֶׁלָּךְ?- What is your last name? (ma shem hamishpachah shlcha?)
Rosh Hashanah ראש השנה was a central idea this past week.
We sang holiday songs, learned about the symbols and customs of the חגCHAG (holiday) and learned the names of the Hebrew months.
We also started working with holiday work pages.
We received our cursive Hebrew letter ARIOT book- MAZAL TOV!
שלום. In Judaics this week we continued our study of the books of the Torah. We delved deeper and began to understand the language and structure of a Tanakh. The main focus was being able to distinguish book (סֵפֶר), chapter פֶּרֶק)), and verse (פָּסוּק). It was very exciting as much of the class did not realize that the Torah in printed form had these elements just like other books. Wishing you an amazing Shabbat and a fun long weekend. -Morah Rivkah
Thank you to Brian Unell for being our mystery reader this week.
Ethan and Leah!
