to our fourth-grade families.
This year we will be co-teaching your children. Hilary on Sundays and Marsha on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Both are experienced teachers and are excited to begin the new school year.
Today was our first Tuesday class. Marsha welcomed the students to the new school year. We discussed, treating others as we would want to be treated. Respecting fellow students and the teacher. Personal space was also addressed in today’s class. The children sang the Aleph Bet song and recited the brachot before eating their snack. To have some movement, we played a game of “Moshe says”. The 5778 Apple and Honey Olympics, began with the shofar being sounded. The students had a fun time with their classmates playing games and earning pennies. The pennies were put into a jar, of the charity of their choice. They received honey sticks and a good time was had by all.
Tomorrow, the students in the Wednesday class will have the same day. Please have the children wear shoes for outdoor play and appropriate clothes for use of acrylic paints.
We will keep in touch with you throughout the school year. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns that may arise. It would also be helpful, if you would contact us, when you know that your child will be missing a class.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful fourth graders with us this year. We are happy to be at Temple Israel and look forward to meeting you.
