Dear Dalet 1 and Dalet 2 Families,
From the Etgar (Challenge) Curriculum: Your child has begun a unit about Blessings. During the first part of this unit our students learned about the recitation of daily Blessings/Brachot as a way of recognizing the good in our lives. They will focus on their daily actions as a way to access what they have to be grateful for. As part of this unit students will write personal blessings based on their daily experiences. They will be recording artistic representations of these personal blessings Our lessons will include: Counting our Blessings, Responding to difficult circumstances. We will be making a 100 blessing chain link, pop up cards and do Torah text studies to learn about the Blessings in our lives.
At the conclusion of this unit we will be inviting parents, family members, and special people at home to participate in a family program titled an “Attitude of Gratitude”. During this program we will eat, discuss, dance and will explore the blessing of your family by creating a unique piece of Judaica, a plaque with a blessing for your home that you will be composing together with your child.
Please RSVP to join us March 10 beginning in the Cafeteria at 9:45am. Students will be asked to attend our school-wide Mifgash Class at the regular time of 9am. We look forward to sharing your thoughts on gratitude and blessing with you, and look forward to learn together at our family program.
We continue to celebrate Judaics, Israel and the Hebrew language as we read and speak in class, dance and sing with Mr. Tzedakah, pray and discuss during Mifgash, and read and discuss about different areas in Israel from our Passport packets.
Please continue to take time to listen to your child read in Hebrew at home for continued practice.
Shavua Tov, Counting Our Blessings,
Morah Schear, Moreh Avi and Morah Elana
