We also ask that each student come to school dressed in holiday clothing. If they wish to change out of their nice clothing, please send in their uniform.

Hebrew Homework

Shalom Kitah bet! Happy “almost” month of Adar!

For the next several weeks we will be changing up the Hebrew homework just a bit:

  • Students will continue to bring home their blue machberet with a new reading insert.
  • Students will have as many nights as needed to do the reading and get it initialed by a parent.
  • As they finish a reading, they will take a new one in class. This will allow for those who wish to practise more, to move ahead, and for those who want to take their time, to do so at there own pace.
  • Students should copy the first 2 – 3 sentences in cursive. They will have some time in class to begin this.
  • Hyflex students will get the reading inserts when they return to class.

As always, please reach out if you have any questions.

Hebrew Homework – January 24

Shavua tov,

Today the children are bringing home their blue Hebrew notebook (machberet). Their homework is to copy the first 3 sentences in cursive (most of them have completed this step in class). They are to read the short story about a turtle and get an adult to initial the page.

Some students have two questions to answer in Hebrew as well. If your child doesn’t have the two questions in their machberet, they are welcome to find them here on the blog and answer them.

This is due on Wednesday. They will receive another short story on Wednesday which will be due on Friday. Part of the homework is to be responisble for returning their machberet and not forgetting it at home. 🙂

Have a wonderful rest of your week!

Hebrew Homework Nov. 8th

Kitah bet will continue reading the story about the fisherman, his greedy wife and the golden fish on Classkick. Next week will be the last week of this story. Please check that your child is following along as they listen to me reading the story. This should help them recognize words when they read it themselves. Don’t worry if your child makes mistakes while reading; I want to know what sounds they need to work on. Click here to access homework. Shavua Tov!
