Our Weekly Class Newsletter October 12- October 15
A Note from Mrs. Buc
It was so nice to have a full week of school! I forgot what it felt like! It was busy, but full of fun! We learned about the Shema and V'ahavta prayers and made beautiful mezzuzot. We talked about how those prayers are rolled up inside the mezzuzah, why we have them around our homes, kosher vs non kosher scrolls and we looked at images of all kinds of mezzuzot (many had the Hebrew letter shin). I can't wait to hear where your child decides to hang theirs once they come home! They are just about done.

What Did We Learn This Week?
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?
Shabbat shalom, שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם
