Franco-Ontarien day on September 25

Good morning!

I wanted to let you know that we will be celebrating Franco-Ontarien day tomorrow, Friday September 25.

We will be having treats, watching a live-stream of the celebration (raising of the flag, concert, activities), and creating our own flag with the ADKs and Grade 1s.

The live stream is available on:

Célébrons le 25 septembre ! (contenu)

Given that it will be a dress down day, I encourage the kids to wear green and white (Franco-Ontarien flag colors).

Have a great day!

French reading

Good evening!

Your child will come home this week with a book called “Dans ma salle de classe” which we put together using classroom vocabulary. Please ask your child to read you this book (more than once if it is difficult). We have practiced this book in class and your child should be able to explain and translate each page. If your child has memorized the book, please have them read the words out of order and if possible, translate them to English or Hebrew.

Getting Ready for Rosh Hashanah

In kitah bet we are getting ready for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Last week we read a story called, “Why do we blow the shofar in the Hebrew month of Elul?” We learned that the shofar is telling us to: “WAKE UP! A NEW YEAR IS COMING AND WE HAVE TO GET READY!” 

Bolded are the words we are learning in Hebrew.

What items do we need to get ready? 

תַפּוּחִים בִּדְבַשׁApples and honey for a sweet new year. (tapuchim b’dvash)

רִימוֹנִים – Pomegranates to represent all the mitzvot we will do this year. (rimonim)

חָלוֹת עַגוּלוֹת – Round Challah so that we will have a good year all year round. (challot agulot)

מַחֲזוֹר – Special prayer book to read the prayers just for the High Holidays. (machzor)

כַּרְטִיסֵי בְּרָכָה – Rosh Hashanah greeting cards to wish others a Shana Tova. (kartees bracha)

 

What else can we do to get ready for Rosh Hashanah?

תְּשׁוּבָה – We reflect on our year and think if there’s anything we can do better or change next year. (teshuvah)

סְלִיחָה – We say sorry to anyone we may have wronged. (selicha)

מִצְווֹת – We can do lots of good deeds to prepare for the new year. (mitzvot)
