Welcome back and reviewing what we’ve learned!

This week our weekday Second graders began to wrap up their Yachad studies this year by reviewing what they’ve learned through games and activities!

Tuesday Jewish Studies

As we wrap up the year, we’ve begun reviewing the characters and stories we learned from Genesis and Exodus. We played a fun board game and work on activity sheets to review. Next week, we will be making Torah covers for the Torahs we have been working on all year.

Dear Parents,

It is very nice to go back and study together after Passover. Hope you enjoyed the holiday. We are starting the last stages of the year, and this week we began to summarize the story we have learned. We played a nice board game about the exit from Egypt, and we filled a workbook together, full of activities that the children enjoyed.

Have a wonderful day, and spring blooms,

David

Hebrew Through Movement

Tuesday

Shalom Families,

We are doing a small unit on Israel and focusing on Yom Atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day. We are learning how to follow Hebrew commands to draw the Israeli flag. On Tuesday, we focused on the following vocabulary words: degel (flag), degel yisrael (Israel flag), l’malah (up), l’matah (down) and b’emtzah (in the middle). We played a game where students had to respond quickly to the Hebrew commands to place their hands up high, low or on their tummy (in the middle). Next week we will focus on the shapes and colors in the flag.

B’shalom,
Sharone
