Grade 5 Update

Posted on March 22, 2018

Dear Kitah Hey families,
The kids have been working so hard in class! On Sunday, we had a special program called Understanding Our Differences. This program helped our class continue to build a positive classroom community. The students had some serious discussions about allergies and chronic diseases like diabetes. We even had some students in our class speak out to share their differences. After learning a bit about the challenges many people have to live with, the class had a chance to count carbohydrates and balance the number of carbohydrates they want to consume with the amount of insulin needed. The students were very engaged in this lesson and learned so much! We continued our discussion of differences and what it means to have empathy for others in several other activities during our values class.

In Hebrew, the class participated in a jeopardy game where they were able to work with team members to practice their reading. The jeopardy game was divided into four categories. Each category was a different prayer the students have been studying this year. On each card for the given category, students had to correctly read one line from the given prayer. They did such an amazing job! We were very impressed with their motivation and all they have learned in class.
Best,
Diana and Tali
