Buc's Bulletin

Our Weekly Class Newsletter February 8th- February 12th

A Note from Mrs. Buc

It really was snowing, a blizzard actually by the look of this photo! Ha! This week, we were able to take part in helping to develop a Google Expedition using google cardboard, an I phone, and a Google App. The 2nd graders visually visited several biomes that we will be studying about next trimester: desert, tundra, tropical rainforest, savannah, and more! It was a very cool experience where the kids were immersed in the lesson and felt like they were actually in each of those habitats walking around!

Have a wonderful long weekend.

Shabbat Shalom!

What Did We Learn This Week?

Language Arts

We had a great time interviewing the Davis staff. Some of us have begun to type the interview into a paragraph. The students will get to choose a font, size, and color along with learning some computer skills in Microsoft Word! In grammar, we learned about making subjects and verbs agree. Also, we began to fill in an outline about our present life in 2nd grade!


We finished learning about clue words in word problems for addition and subtraction. We also started a new book very similar to our Daily Oral Language, but in this case, it's to practice daily math concepts.


Dear 2nd grade parents,

In Hebrew class, this past week, we took a deep breath and reviewed all the letters we have learned so far:

א, ו, י, נ, ן, ג, ה, ר, ב, ס, ש, ח, ק, ד, כ, ך, ז, מ, ם, ל

We practiced all the Hebrew cursive letters we know, using smart board activities and work sheets. We even took a Hebrew spelling test.

Here is a great activity to review Hebrew at home:


Shabbat shalom,

Galia Sabbag


We had fun learning more simple machines this week. We focused on the lever, pulley and screw. We watched interesting and educational videos about each type of simple machine. We are looking forward to an in school field trip by High Touch/High Tech where we get to build simple machines!!
