Hebrew Homework Feb. 23 and a Request

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!

Purim Homework Feb. 8-12

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.

Classkick 2A   Classkick 2B

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.

Tu B’shvat Fun!


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!

Shavua tov!

For homework this week and next we will continue learning the Ashrei prayer.

1) When we practise Ashrei, we are practising our Hebrew reading!

2) We are learning that we know many words that are “hidden” inside bigger words.

(like  וּגְדוּלָּתְךָ comes from the word גָדוֹל)   

3) We are learning that Ashrei is a really long prayer. 

Homework sheet is found in your child’s blue Hebrew homework folder.
