What Did We Learn This Week?
In math this week we continued practicing with addition word problems and being able to also identify our estimation clue words: about, roughly, and approximately. We know that if we have an estimation clue word in our story problem we have to round before we can add. After our assessment, we moved into subtraction and have started to go over subtraction with regrouping to the 10s. Regrouping with subtraction can be challenging, so please let me know if your child could use some extra support and I am happy to have tutorial with them.

Week of January 8th, 2016
In our first week back from break, we reflected on the women of Shemot (Exodus). We discussed how each could be called a heroine and why. To best illustrate the actions and qualities that made them a heroine, the class created a portrait gallery. Each group was assigned a heroine and was then asked to create a portrait of them. In addition to the illustration on the portrait, each group had to write specific details about their heroine. These details included: name, age (their guess), background information (where they grow up, etc.…), what they are best known for, and a personal motto the person would have had. The kids truly excelled at this project.
Week of January 11th, 2016
This week we read the story of Moses and the burning bush, and took a very close look at the dialogue between Moses and G-d. We learn in this parsha that Moses is “slow of speech” and that he is concerned that the Israelites in Egypt will not believe him when he speaks of their freedom. Moving forward, we will be examining Moses’ role as a leader to the people of Israel.
