Writers Workshop

Our writers have been busy adding lots of information to their expert books! They learned what a glossary is, how to use one and how to make their own. Then they added them to their expert books in alphabetical order while using the dictionary for the definitions!


We have been learning about singular and plural nouns. The students learned the rules: when the word has a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) before the letter y, you add the letters s and when the word has a consonant(b,c,d etc) before the letter y you remove the y and replace it with ies.


We started learning about multiplication and division this week. In this unit we will practice the skills:

Using equal groups and repeated addition to multiply.

Writing multiplication equations.

Relating multiplication and division.


The students learned the Megillaht Esther – the story of Purim and the importance of standing up for your Rights. They learned sentences in Hebrew using the Purim vocabulary like Masecha, mishloach Manot, Matanot Leevyonim.

They created their own mask and tried to scared their friends in the other grades… it didn’t work but they had a lot of fun as in Purim we should be happy all the time

משנכנס אדר מרבין בשמחה.

Next week we will celebrate Purim with the whole school and the children’s grandparents and the students can not wait to visit the Sephardic center in Brooklyn as our first Social Action trip!
