We look forward to welcoming the students back (virtually) tomorrow! Below you will find brief instructions, expectations and a schedule for the following 3 days. We appreciate that this will be a difficult time for many and we hope to make it as painless and enjoyable for everyone as possible. Please contact us directly if you have any questions or concerns and we will do our best to find a solution in a timely manner. We are all in this together!
For the following 3 days, you will not need to print any materials for your child. Your child will be working on a digital platform or will be using lined paper to complete all general studies activities this week. Please make sure that your child has a notebook or loose-leaf paper, pencil and eraser available at the beginning of each day. Please also refer to the rule picture below for some hopeful tips that will set your child up for success. My slides can be found on the page ‘Ms. Whitteker’s Daily Slides’ on the blog each day or through the linked schedule document.
Weekly I will post the link for the weekly slides on the OJCS weekly slides and on the blog. On my first slide there is a link for the google meet. On the second slide I’m going to add all the required printings of the specific week and also all the activities that we did so everyone can check that they submitted all the required work of the week.
Schedule for January 5th-7th (this is a working document and may have changes throughout the week)
Dear grade 5 ,
Our weekly schedule which include all the links and activities and important dates of the week could be found under Morah Marina’s weekly slides.
In this week’s Parsha we were learning with the students about the power of words and what “Lashon hara” can do. For the parsha activity students were writing good things about their classmates, then they shared how they felt when someone said a good thing about them. We all agreed that “Lashon hara” has the opposite effect.
We should always think before we speak and not to use “lashon hara”, it can hurt somebody’s feelings.
What a great activity to finish the week with:)
On Tuesday Feb.2nd ,we are going to have our Chumash Quiz on the topic “Lavan and Yaakov”. The Quiz Preparation worksheet is going to be very similar to the quiz itself.
If you have any questions please let me! GOOD LUCK!
In grade 5A students made this beautiful presentation about Parashat Vayetze. Enjoy!!
Hello Grade 5B families,
Please see below the Grade 5B General studies video. This is the detailed, extended version of my recording which gives a little more information. The shorter version I will share tonight in our Back to School virtual meeting.
Please see the below slides document from Morah Ofra detailing the 5B Hebrew curriculum and protocols
Thank you and hopefully ‘see’ you tonight!
Miss Mellenthin and Morah Ofra
Hard to believe that this year is over. I had a pleasure teaching you grade 5 students in the last few months and must say that this has been a wonderful but also a very challenging time.
Distance Learning was challenging but at the same time it brought us closer together despite the physical distance. I am glad that I had a chance to see you a few days ago at the entrance to your home and I hope that this coming September we can all go back to class. I wish you a healthy, joyful summer and can’t wait to see you in 3D.
