Hope you are all enjoying the beautiful summer weather! Remember to:
Our Director of Special Education, Sharon Reichstein has recently added an excellent post to her blog that is a must read. Please take a moment to read it in its entirety. It has some tips on how to navigate the last 3 weeks of school along with some resources on how to reduce stress.
Thank-you for being great partners during this very difficult and challenging time.
Hello lovely Grade 1 families,
It is hard to believe that we are entering the last stretch…
The coming two weeks we will be focusing on vocabulary related to our house.
Monday we focus on the house itself – what type of rooms does it have and how many (bedroom, kitchen, basement, etc…) and sructural related vocabulary (roof, stairs, etc..). Each day after that we will focus on different rooms within the house.
Most of you are already using Quizlet, which is great; however, this week it will be used as their dictionary so I decided to imbed the flashcards and the match study modes for each below, to encourage easy access for everyone. (If you are comfortable I still recomend going to the site itself where there are more options and it is larger)
.If this is your first time using flashcards – You use the arrows to move from one card to the next, and you touch the card itself to flip it over. When written word is visual, you can tap the speaker to listen to the pronunciation of the word.
Within the assignments there are several options of how to present. Please encourage your children to use different options throughout the two weeks.
Monday – …לַבַּיִת שֶׁלִי יֵשׁ
Tuesday – חֲפָצִים בַּחֲדַר הַשֶׁינָה
Thursday – חֲפָצִים בַּשֵׁרוּתִים
Next Friday we will all be participating in the Maccabiah Games. Below is some information you will need ahead of time. There will be more instructions coming your way about how to navigate the GooseChase app. It will be an awesome event filled with RUAH and FUN!!
The day will be a mixture of team meetings on Google Meet (links will be on our regular class schedule) and a series of missions on the app GooseChase. This is an event for the whole family! Parents and siblings can all play together! Please let Morah Ann-Lynn know if your child is NOT going to be playing with a parent or older sibling so we can team them up with an older student or teacher.
Here is a Powerpoint you can use to listen and review our new unit vocabulary at home!
I’ve put together this PowerPoint so that you can practice and listen to our new unit vocabulary at home!
This week’s readings include 2 songs.:
1. Yachad Lev el Lev
Reading Part 1 – Monday
Reading Part 2 – Tuesday
2. Beh’Ivrit Lo Mesha’amem
Reading Part 1 – Wednesday
Reading Part 2 – Thursday
What a fun start to our day.
We will definitely need to continue cooking/baking together during our distance learning together.
My husband had so much fun joining us and together with you, the students and their parents, learn Ivrit while making charoset for Pesach.
A few of you already toldwrote me you will make it again during the holiday.
Now put your thinking caps on, what other simple recipes would you like to make together? If you have an idea let me know in the comments or email me the recipe (Try to figure out the words for the ingredients in Hebrew).
Have a lovely day,
Hi Kita Alef,
I am so proud of how you are all managing to continue learning from home these days.
You are such a wonderful group of children and your ability to make others happy shines through with your little acts of kindness towards each other (your patience during our Google Meet, contacting each other to chat), your family (Helping your siblings and your parents), your teachers (sharing your thoughts and working together) and your community (like the pictures we sent Hillel Lodge Residents)..
The pictures made them very very happy. Knowing we thought of them at this time meant so much to them.
Marilyn Adler wanted me to share this with you:
“On behalf of the Residents of Hillel Lodge please extend a warm and appreciative thank you to all the students in Kitah Alef for creating beautiful cards to share with the Residents. We are all aware that at this time the students are not attending school which makes it even more heartwarming to know that the Residents of the Lodge continue to be in their thoughts. Keep well and take care everyone.”
See you tomorrow,
