Kitah Bet/Grade 2 Update from Margie
Posted on September 21, 2015
Kitah Bet (second Grade) has had a terrific start to the year!
We all had a lot fun at the Apple and Honey Olympics; it was a great way to welcome everyone back and to meet some new friends.
Sunday morning began with talking about what we are looking forward to achieving this year over a breakfast of cinnamon apple cheerios, followed by singing with Cantor Ken and the entire school.
Back in the classroom we had our first Hebrew lesson reviewing the letter “Shin” and combining it with an “AH” vowel. We brainstormed ideas for appropriate classroom behavior and agreed on the need to be kind and respectful to each other. We also talked about trying our best, being creative and learning from our mistakes.
We ended our day learning about how we observe Yom Kippur in the Synagogue; this included a “field trip” to the sanctuary to see the Torah scrolls dressed in white. The students were impressed at how many chairs filled the space, speculating on how many people come to services on the High Holidays. We read a book called “The Hardest Word”, asks your child what the word is and how it connects to Yom Kippur.
Wishing you all Tzum Kal, an easy fast and a happy and healthy New Year,
