January is abuzz!

Humanities

In humanities class, the year is 1776 and the students are about to go on a wild adventure through the American Revolution. This week we reviewed the political and topographical geography of the American colonies and will soon talk about Loyalists and Patriots.

In ELA, students conquered the enormous feat of writing an in-class argumentative essay ending out our unit on Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. You should really be very proud of their enormous dedication.

 

Math

It’s our first full week back at Senesh and the 8th grade has a lot to do! They are working hard balancing play rehearsals with academics. In Math, they are learning about different topics in Data and Statistics such as Measures of Central Tendency, Dot Plot Distributions, Frequency Histograms, Box Plots, and Standard Deviation. It’s been interesting to explore how these different areas of Statistics are applied in the real world and what kind of observations we can make from data when it’s given in values versus when it’s displayed on a graph.

 

Hebrew

Dear parents ,
It has been a pleasure to see your children back in school, well rested and re-energized.
This week  both groups started viewing an Israeli film “Apples From The Desert” that presents the conflicts that a hound religious girl is facing in trying to integrate in the wider Israeli society.
In addition, in Hebrew 8K we have been busy reviewing verbs we have learned over the years and their use in all tenses.
In Hebrew 8J we have been studying vocabulary and structures related to taking trips.
I wish you a relaxing weekend,
Andreea

 

להורים יקרים,
השבוע התלמידים המשיכו לעבוד על פרויקט המסכם את היחידה “אנשים עם מוגבלויות” אשר במהלכו נחשפו התלמידים לסוגים שונים של קשיים ביום יום של ילדים בני גילם. הפרויקט מורכב מכמה שלבים בהם התלמידים חוקרים וכותבים באופן עצמאי אודות ארגון או עמותה שבחרו המסייעת לילדים עם מוגבלויות.
סוף שבוע נעים,
אילנה
