## Weekly Note from Mrs. London

We had a blast celebrating the 100th day of school this week! We also had fun choosing a faculty or staff member that we wanted to interview to go along with our unit on biographies. Then, we learned how to conduct an interview and made an appointment to interview that person. Some students even began to interview the person they chose this week!

Have a wonderful weekend and Shabbat Shalom!!

## Language Arts

This week we continued the beginnings of cursive as we practiced our strokes and letter c. We began a new unit in vocabulary and our test will be next Tuesday. In grammar, we learned about action verbs. We also took our first CARS test independently. The kids did amazing! We went back over the test and how to make corrections if we missed a question. I sent these home in your child's Friday folder, so please review the test, sign it and send it back to school on Monday.

We finished our Super Kid Glasses stories and they are hanging in the second grade hall! We can't for you to read them!

We had a great time celebrating 100th day of school in centers this week. We loved the app where we combined two apps, Aging Booth and Chatterpix, to tell about what we would be when we are 100 years old. We also wrote about what we would do if we had \$100, created art with the numbers 1-0-0 and made predictions for rolling a dice 100 times and flipping a coin 100 times.

## Math

Our week was fun as we played subtraction basketball to review for our quiz on subtraction with regrouping. Then, we learned about clue words in subtraction word problems and how to solve them by writing a number model, the answer, and identifying the unit. On the 100th day of school, we filled out a 100's board and cut out the number squares. On the other side of the 100's board was a picture of each student. The last step was gluing the picture back together and creating 100 pieces of me!

## Science

We have started on new unit on Simple Machines! We watched the Simple Machines Bainpop Jr. and took the quizzes together to review. Also, we learned many important vocabulary words: energy, force, friction, work, push and pull. We also learned about inclined planes and levers this week. I hope you all have fun learning along with your child with this new science topic!

## Hebrew

In our ARIOT KOTEVאריאות כּוֹתֵב book, we covered the letter ל (LAMED) with a review of all the letters we already know,

practicing the formation of the letter, vocabulary withל LAMED and writing drills.

At the end of the week, we used our שָׁלוֹם SHALOM book to learn the story:אופס! (OOPS!).

Here are some verbs with the letter ל LAMED to review at home:
