A Note from Mrs. Buc

What a week! We celebrated 100's Day in style! We each cut up our faces into 100 squares and glued them back together. Plus, 100's Day would not be complete without food! We each made a trail mix with 100 goodies and then decorated cupcakes with a small Twizzler (1) and gummy Lifesavers (00). We did a fabulous job leading Shabbat. Our game show parody was a hit with the audience! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Shabbat Shalom!

What Did We Learn This Week?

Language Arts

This week we continued the beginnings of cursive as we practiced our strokes and letter c. Bossy r was our focus in spelling. We began a new unit in vocabulary and our test will be next Tuesday. In grammar, we learned about action verbs. We took our first CARS test independently. The kids did amazing! We had a great time celebrating 100th day of school in centers this week. We loved combining two apps, Aging Booth and Chatterpix to tell about what we would be when we are 100 years old.

Math

Our week was fun as we played Subtraction Jeopardy to review for our quiz. 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.

Hebrew

Dear 2nd grade parents,

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:

שׁוֹאֵל- asks (shoel)

הוֹלֵךְ- walks, goes (holech)

לוֹמֵד- studies (lomed)

Shabbat shalom,

Galia Sabbag

Science

The kids are super excited to learn all about simple machines! We watched Brainpop Jr. and took the quizzes together. Also, we learned many important vocabulary words: energy, force, friction, work, push and pull. We watched a couple videos and read about inclined planes.
