Wow! what a great start to our Kitah Alef this year!
We have already learned so much and the year has just begun. We are getting to know each other, both students and teachers, we are learning how to read in 3 languages, we are gaining new vocabulary every single day, we have our routines down packed and we are having lots of fun doing all this…
As you know, we also had some special guests visit our classroom last week…
We want to invite you to follow us here, on our blog to see photos and learn about what is happening in our classrooms throughout the year.
Please check out our back to school page above for information about our curriculum, homework, behaviour management, communication and more.
We wish you all a Shana Tova Umetuka and we are looking forward to this wonderful year together.
If you are not able to attend our Back to School Night or in need of a review, please see the following videos and slides. If you have questions, do not hesitate to contact us.
It is definately a different begining in Kitah Alef this year!
We are all working togerher on keeping distance and helping each other by being respectful of each other’s space, keeping our masks on, using only the tools asigned to us and so much more. Every day we come across new situations that require ‘covid time sollutions’ and together, we figure it out… We definately have to be creative in our thought.
So far, our Kitah Alef students are demonstarting kindness, patience, respect, curiousity, and so much more that makes it a joy learn together.
We created a kindness web in a cursive Alef to remind us to always be kind… and we are already practicing acts of kindness in class and in our OJCS community…
We heard that Kitah Gimel really wanted to play on the structures so we offered to switch spaces with them on Fridays… It was so nice to see how happy we made them today.
We are slowly getting into our routines and are looking forward to meeting you all on our virtual Back to School Night and tell you some more about our year.

May it be a healthy year filled with family and friends.
