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.
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!
As we continue to navigate digital learning, I’ve created this PowerPoint (with audio links) that students can use to practice and review our clothing vocabulary at home.
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.
Take care and…
Grade 1 team.
