Hi Kitah Alef,
Micha (from Grade 2) made a warm up video.
There are so many skills to learn when creating and sharing a video.
Can you think of some….
If you tried the video you can give Micah feedback through google hangout, or write him on chat.
…and here is another one:
We are Having soooo much fun this week. Our Kitah Alef Album is up to date… You should have a look to see some of what we have been up to… 😊
As you already know, next week is spirit week at OJCS. For Wednesday we are going to all dress up as Crayola crayons.
We are making the props in class; however, we need each student to decide (with your help… Clothes dependent) what colour they will be.
Please search their closet and decide by Thursday, so they can use the proper colour for their props…
Thanks for your help.
Welcome back everyone!
It was soooo nice to recieve such happy hellos today (and some heartwarming hugs… that’s really why I love teaching Kitah Alef 😉 ) We shared what we did this past week and got right back into our routine.
They were all so excited to use their new Siddurim during our Tefilah today! You would have been so proud.
As It is Rosh Chodesh Adar this week we are welcoming it with joy and excitement, as we are done our ‘learning to read’ booklets and what better way than reading Purim books.
Each student took a book for the week (if they are done quickly, I will accept early returns, and give them another book.). However, I would strongly recommend not to rush through the book but rather, read a few pages daily to continue the habit and to keep the quality of reading (a week away already made a difference for some).
The books are in a ziplock bag and inside is also a table for you to write the pages they read and sign – There is only 3 spaces for each book, but you can write the pages on same line (for example after two days, you can write 3-7, 8-10 and then sign your name in the following square.).
Bellow are recordings of the books; They are each divided into 5 parts:
לִכְבוֹד פּוּרִים – מִי בַּכִּיתָה (Lichvod Purim Mee Bakitah?)
מִשְׁלוֹחַ מָנוֹת מֵאֲרָיאוֹת (Mishloach Manot Mee Ariot)
2 p. 8-10
וְנַהֲפוֹךְ הוּא (Veh’Nahafoch Hoo)
1 p. 3-7
Woohoo! We are less nervous now that we had a few rehearsals in the gym … and we were great!
Please try to have your child/children at school as close to 8:30am as possible.
I am linking you to the children’s sitting arrangement so you can plan your spot. I recommend that you sit opposite to where your child is on the stage, so you see them better (i.e., if your child is on the right side of our semicircle, you are better off sitting on the left side of the stage.
Also, we ask that the children wear their nice clothes for the celebration (NO track pants or hoodies).
If they rather wear their uniform that is ok as well; however, please make sure it is with no stains or holes, and use a white shirt.
To save their nice clothes, we ask that they bring uniform with them, to change into after our celebration.
Looking forward to having you join us on this special day!
This week’s reading:
Monday – p6 – tzu, yu and ru
Tuesday – p7 – vu, chu and ku
Wednesday – p8 – fu, su and zu
Thursday – p9 – tu
Almost there everybody…. 😉
We will be sending the reading parts home again this weekend. please help your child by encouraging to stand streight, look at you and say it loud, slow and clear. Many of them can do it without their papers already.
Also, a gentle reminder to have the covers in school by monday (we need them for photos)
…and here is a list to enter the amount of guests your child will be having on the day itself. Please include siblings that go to our school in your overall amount (do not include your grade 1 child/ren).
See you all very soon.
