2nd Grade (Bet) Class Update



Bet 1 & 2

Dear Kitah Bet 1 and 2 (2nd-grade) Families,


I hope everyone had a wonderful Pesach! Now that we have returned from Pesach Break, we can look back at the school year and see how much the students have learned!


In Etta’s Hebrew reading class, the students continue to learn more skills and strengthen the skills previously learned. During March, students learned almost every letter and vowel, in order to be able to read the Four Questions. In April and May, we will continue to study Hebrew reading through two different approaches.

  • Students are now working in Volume 2 of their text, Z’man Likro. In the textbook work, the students will continue to strengthen their reading skills by focusing on certain letters and vowels in each lesson.

  • Our other reading focus is the learning of Prayers and Blessings. Students will experience the language through phrases, sentences, and paragraphs. We are starting with the prayers the students have learned orally in class. Students are learning about prayers and the six or ten words of introduction for Brachot. (See picture)


In Michelle’s class, the students completed their study of Jewish Mitzvot. (See pictures.) They are now beginning their booklet about Israel’s cities. The booklet starts with Jerusalem--the Old City and the Modern City.


B’Shalom,

Etta and Michelle

We are starting with the prayers the students have learned orally in class. Students are learning about prayers and the 6 or 10 words of introduction for Brachot.


Students are also learning about Israel. The class started the unit by learning about the holidays, Yom HaZikaron and Yom HaAtzma’ut. The students are now studying using their Israel booklet about the cities of Israel. The booklet begins as a trip through Israel starting with Jerusalem, the old city and the new city, and the Dead Sea. This unit has created lively classroom discussions.


B’Shalom,

Etta Bernstein
