My Grade 5 was working on some brainstorming ideas for Pesach. These are some moments of the groups working on the project.
Grade 5 Ivrit students have been learning about Jerusalem; her places, it’s history, the different people that live there and the religions that are practiced in Jerusalem and much more. To conclude the unit and before moving on to learning about Yam Hamelach (the Dead Sea), students were very busy building a small model of Jerusalem. As you can see, the model of Jerusalem turned out beautifully!
Kitah 5 Ivrit class had a great time today baking “Oznei Haman” (Hamantaschens) with Jaimee Mitzmacher. The result was DELICIOUS!
Kitah 5 Ivrit enjoyed baking “Oznei Haman” (Hamentashens) with help from Jaimee Mitzmacher. They turned out DELICIOUS!!!!!
Purim is coming up soon and Middle School is preparing a carnival and we are looking for small prizes to provide students. If you have any gently used toys, small gifts, “chachkas” or anything that you think a child would enjoy to choose as a prize, please send in your items to your child’s homeroom teacher. We thank you for your support and help in making this year’s Purim festival the best ever!
