Weeks 3 and 4: Monday, September 17th – Friday, September 28th

Hebrew Dear Parents, These few days students continued to explore describing things in their world through their senses. Students watched an Israeli TV program about the 5 senses, practiced having conversations in the Shuk describing what they see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. Students also wrote and acted out short skits using the new vocabulary, using both present and past tense. I wish you all Hag Sameach, Andreea Heritage להורים שלום, השבוע המשכנו לעבוד על היחידה “מעשה טוב” במהלכה תלמידים שיתפו במעשה טוב שהם עשו במהלך החגים כלפי חבריהם, בני משפחה או בכלל. למדנו את העקרון “תעביר את זה הלאה”,...

HUMANITIES This week in Social Studies class, students learned all about what defines a civilization, and which features all civilizations have in common.

It was fun to hear about their creative, made-up worlds, and to see how they all incorporated the key features of a civilization in different ways. In ELA class, we are just beginning our first class text: The Epic of Gilgamesh. This tale, which...

Sukkot Trip, Social Learning

Writing In Writing Workshop we studied authors who have written meaningful small moment stories. We read the story Owl Moon by Jane Yolen, and noticed how she described this one night of owling and stretched it over so many pages! We got to writing our small moment narratives, using ideas from our decorated writing folders, and studying Jane Yolen’s writing to help us stretch our stories. With our writing buddies we talked about our ideas, brainstormed ways authors decide on their small moments, and shared our writing. We can’t wait to read The Leaving Morning by Angela Johnson next week...
