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.
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).
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.”
We hope you are all well and finding positive ways to deal with our new reality.
We are all working hard to create some learning consistency and routine to our students and you, the parents.
We understand that each family’s situation is unique and will try our best to accommodate you.
By tomorrow afternoon you will receive our weekly plan with more detailed explanation as to the expectations and our availability.
We will continue to treat the days as school days and will be available for the kids throughout, to assist in any way we can.
With regards to getting things from school tomorrow. It is not a necessity, given that some can make it and some cannot. If you do come, you are welcome to pick up their Siddur, but it is not a necessity. The rest will be on line for you to print as we go along. This is new territory for us to learn together, collaborate and communicate regularly. As always, we are looking forward to working with all of you to make this happen in the best possible way.
