Mazel tov again to all of kitah bet students and families! Your teachers are so proud of you!
Some have asked for links to the recorded video and the slide shows.
Shalom and erev tov!
Tomorrow at 12pm, kitah bet is going on a Zoom call with the kitah bet class in Metulla, Israel to celebrate Shavuot together. No obligation, but parents are more than welcome to join us on this call. It should last about 20 minutes. Here is the zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/94767483068
The teachers have put together a choice board full of activities for Shavuot. You may wish to do some of these together as a family over the holiday weekend.
Chag Shavuot Sameach!
Shalom and welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful Passover holiday and break!
SAVE THE DATE: Kitah bet will be having their “Chagigat haTorah” just before Shavuot this year. The date is booked for Friday, May 14th at 9am. We hope that you can join us virtually to celebrate our Torah learning.
HOMEWORK: This term our Hebrew homework will focus more on Hebrew reading and cursive writing. Each night, Monday through Thursday, students will get a small reading text plus an option to either copy 3 of the sentences in cursive or create their own sentences with the words in bold. Feel free to print the cursive letters here.
The homeowrk can be found in the Hebrew workbooks in their backpacks. Please reach out if your child is having difficulty completing the homework. I am happy to make any modifications.
Have a wonderful week!
Spring is on it’s way which means so is Passover!
For homework this week the students will be learning/reviewing songs for Passover. Use this Slide deck to have your child(ren) read the words of the song and practise singing them too.
Shalom Kitah Bet!
Hebrew homework is coming home in notetotes today. It’s the shortened version of the story of Purim. We are reading the full version in class! Students should read the story and have an adult sign it. It is due anytime before next Monday.
Tomorrow we are making רַעֲשָׁנִים (graggers) so that we are ready to hear the Megillah on Friday. Please send in empty toilet paper rolls. The more the better!
Shavua tov! This week the homework for kitah bet will be a combination of Classkick and a supplementary worksheet.
On Classkick, students will read a Purim story. Each Classkick slide has a voice recording telling the students what to do on that slide.
This worksheet will be sent home in their homework folder. Students are to write down all of the “opposites” mentioned in the Purim story. Then they can think and write down some other opposites they know: גָּדוֹל – קָטָן (big-small)
As always, please reach out if you have any questions.
It’s amazing how much fun we can have, even online, when celebrating holidays at OJCS!
Today we learned about Eliezer Ben Yehuda and some of the words he invented, we exercised in Hebrew and danced as trees. We drew a fruit basket and we created some beautiful trees with fruit and vegetables for our snack. We even had ALL our teachers (yes! even the English and French teachers) read us a story in Hebrew. What a special day!
The students made such creative “tree” snacks today. If you have not had a chance to upload their picture on Classkick, or send me a copy, please do so…take a look at the slide deck (so far). I will share our creations with the class tomorrow.
Here are the Slides we used today with all the links to the videos/stories, etc. as requested by some of our students.
Morah Ruthie and her grade 8 class created a wonderful and very informative “broadcast” in honour of Hebrew language day. Please take some time to watch with your family.
Wishing you all an early Shabbat Shalom!
We practised lighting the “Virtual Hanukkiah” today in class. Kitah bet students want to try it out at home. Here is the link: Virtual Hanukkiah
Chag Hanukkah Sameach!!
