What Did We Learn This Week?

Language Arts

Math

Hebrew

Dear 2nd grade parents,

Learning cursive Hebrew letters is interesting and enjoyable!

We covered four related letters this week: ו(VAV), י (YOD), נ (NUN), and ן (NOON SOFIT- final NUN).

We practiced the correct formation of these letters in writing and our proficiency in reading them.

Here are our verbs this week: נוֹתְנִים (NOTNEEM- giving), קוֹרְאִים (KOREEM- reading).

Looking for a fun Hebrew activity to do at home?
