Happy New Year 2020 and Happy Tevet 5780
Dear Parents of Kitah Dalet (4th grade) 1 & 2,

A Special Family Blessing Program for Dalet 1 and 2 will take place the morning of February 23, 2020 inviting parents to join their child at 9:45am in the Beit Knesset. RSVP!!
We came back from Winter Break ready to continue our work in learning Hebrew. We learned the difference between male and female nouns and how to pluralize them. We continued working with our book and practiced our reading. We are practicing writing words and forming letters in Hebrew script and are moving through our handwriting books. Here is a link to our Hebrew text book so you can review and practice reading with your child at home.
We continued our interactive lessons with Mr. Tzedakah, where we learned a song called Eretz Yisrael Sheli. It is about how the country of Israel came to be. Some of the keywords in the song were Bayit (House),Shir (Song) and Gesher (Bridge).
Etgar Yesodi Curriculum:
We continued to study and analyze various Torah Texts that taught us about the stories and struggles of our Patriarchs and Matriarchs. Recently we learned about Yaakov and Esav. What lessons can we learn from the way Yaakov greeted Esav? How do you greet your peers and family?
Practice Sheets and Interviews:
As a reminder, for extra practice at home you can download our Hebrew textbook here, and have your kids read the short stories at the beginning of each chapter and go over each chapter’s vocabulary.
Interview sheets were sent home with your child in order to interview an older family member. The due date was Wednesday, January 15, so if you haven’t already returned them, please do so immediately. We are excited to share these important stories in class and create art memorials to celebrate the lives of our family members, as well as those who may no longer be with us.
Community and Communication
Please make your best effort to have your child attend regularly and be on time to class. We have only a short amount of time together every week, and a lot of fun things to cover.
With a clear vision in “20/20” and counting our blessings!
Morah (Teacher) Schear
