All School News – February 2, 2017

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

Kindergarten began their unit on dental health. Did you know that children have 20 teeth, while adults will have as many as 32? We learned the Super Smile song about the importance of daily brushing and flossing, and created mouths using marshmallows for teeth. No kindergarten unit on dental health would be complete without discussing the tooth fairy! Kindergarten read several different books and discussed that there are multiple perspectives regarding the validity of the tooth fairy.

In math, we have continued building to 100 and working on our number sense as we prepare for the 100th day of school. The children are learning about how numbers follow a pattern. Once they realize this, counting becomes a much easier task. Please help you child by encouraging him or her to count on from a random number: “Begin counting at 56…” or, “Count from 45-57”.

In Hebrew, we are continuing to learn about creation. Thus far, the children have learned what God created on days 1 (darkness and light), 2 (waters and sky), 3 (trees and flowers), and 4 (sun, moon, and stars). Please ask your child to sing The Creation Song to hear all about God’s beautiful creations in Hebrew.

Additionally, the students have been immersed in a Creation science unit. They have discussed various sources of light, their feelings in darkness and light, the three main types of clouds, and they have made predictions of whether a plant will grow with or without the presence of light and/or water.

In Mindfulness, Kindergartners continue to explore the power of being in the here and now. We have talked a lot about our thoughts and how they continually tend to drift back to the past or catapult us into the future. We have had many class discussions on how Mindfulness can anchor us in the here and now, allowing the conscious mind to intervene at such moments with a light touch, a gentle redirection of our mental energies so that we stay in the present; aware, mindful, and creative.

Warmly,

The Kindergarten Teachers

Dear 1st Grade Parents,

This week in 1st grade we learned “r” blends, with words such as “crab,” “brag,” and “frog.” In math we began learning about measuring using weight. We discussed vocabulary such as heavier, lighter, and as heavy as. We are learning how to compare items based on weight and how to use scales.

In honor of the upcoming President’s Day, in social studies we are beginning to learn about Abraham Lincoln. Today we are excited to learn about Groundhog’s Day and make our predictions on whether the groundhog will see his shadow.

In Mindfulness, 1st graders continue to explore the power of being in the here and now. We have talked a lot about our thoughts and how they continually tend to drift back to the past or catapult us into the future. We have had many class discussions on how Mindfulness can anchor us in the here and now, allowing the conscious mind to intervene at such moments with a light touch, a gentle redirection of our mental energies so that we stay in the present; aware, mindful, and creative.

Dear 2nd Grade Parents,

Last week, the 2nd graders finished writing their own dreams about how to make a difference in the world. They all had wonderful ideas for what they would do to help make the world a better place. Some of the beautiful dreams included helping the poor, the environment, and the sick. What menches we are raising…our future is in good hands! We are looking forward to beginning our study in the upcoming weeks about the different presidents that helped found and shape our country.

In Hebrew, the students finished their story “Ba-yeet” (House) and proudly read it to their families as a part of their homework. The children explained in Hebrew who was next to their house and who was in the house. In addition, we are continuing to move forward in our study of the Hebrew letters and vowels and practicing how to blend them.

Second graders are still hard at work rewriting and refining their soon-to-be published essays on their personal heroes. A request will be coming home shortly for photographs of the person who they wrote about. Please find a clear picture of the person….if you don’t have a hard copy, please snap one with your phone and email it to Mrs. Volterra. She will take care of printing it. You can always take a picture of a picture too! In addition, we have all been busy preparing for our 2nd grade Shabbat dinner this Friday, February 3rd. Looking forward to seeing you there!

In Mindfulness, 2nd graders continue to explore the power of being in the here and now. We have talked a lot about our thoughts and how they continually tend to drift back to the past or catapult us into the future. We have had many class discussions on how Mindfulness can anchor us in the here and now, allowing the conscious mind to intervene at such moments with a light touch, a gentle redirection of our mental energies so that we stay in the present; aware, mindful, and creative.

We look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow night at our 2nd grade Shabbat dinner.

Dear 3rd Grade Parents,

In social studies, we are deepening our knowledge of slavery and the Underground Railroad by learning about Harriet Tubman. We are exploring Harriet Tubman’s life and her role as an escaped slave, a conductor on the Underground Railroad, and as an abolitionist. In our reading class, we are also learning about slavery as we continue to read With Open Hands: A Story About Biddy Mason. The book chronicles Biddy Mason’s life from being born a slave in Georgia, to moving to Utah with her owner and his family, and finally coming to Los Angeles, California. Biddy Mason did many amazing things to contribute to her community in Los Angeles—ask your child to tell you some of the things Biddy Mason did!

In 3rd grade Hebrew, students are working diligently, focusing on conversation skills through games and pair work. Some of the students are learning a unit about friends and are practicing the verbs live, throw, catch, and play. Some of the students are learning and conversing about birthdays and writing a project about their birthdays in which they are practicing the verbs give, sit, and stand. We are so proud of their ability to converse!

Our 3rd graders have written beautiful essays about what it was like on the first Shabbat after God created the world. Integrating art and using their imaginations and descriptive words, the students are now going to paint the scene that illustrates their writing. All of the 3rd graders have now had a turn leading the services as Klei Kodesh. They did a beautiful job and shared their heartfelt connection to the prayer. Everyone felt their genuine compassion and sincerity that was conveyed through their words.

In Mindfulness, 3rd graders continue to explore the power of being in the here and now. We have talked a lot about our thoughts and how they continually tend to drift back to the past or catapult us into the future. We have had many class discussions on how Mindfulness can anchor us in the here and now, allowing the conscious mind to intervene at such moments with a light touch, a gentle redirection of our mental energies so that we stay in the present; aware, mindful, and creative.

Dear 4th Grade Parents,

Last week in 4th grade we continued our research for our mission essays. We are going through the entire writing process and learning how to self and peer edit our work. We also had a Word Wisdom unit test on words that involved character traits.

This week in Hebrew, the 4th graders used the proper speech patterns while using adjectives. The students explored how adjectives function in the Hebrew language when using descriptive speech and writing.

In Judaic Studies, as we are learning about Tu B’shvat, students are raising their awareness on how to be partners in protecting the environment. Students are working on developing strategies on how to conserve our precious resources. We will honor Andrew Pakravan, David Stein, Joel Rusanow, Jasmine Abaian, Ben Amodio and Noa Foruzanfar as our Klei Kodesh leaders on Friday.

In Mindfulness, 4th graders continue to explore the power of being in the here and now. We have talked a lot about our thoughts and how they continually tend to drift back to the past or catapult us into the future. We have had many class discussions on how Mindfulness can anchor us in the here and now, allowing the conscious mind to intervene at such moments with a light touch, a gentle redirection of our mental energies so that we stay in the present; aware, mindful, and creative.

Dear 5th Grade Parents,

We are using the events leading up to the American Revolution to practice writing TPEs, a strategy to summarize passages (through Title, Passage, and Ending). In students’ TPEs, they are pinpointing key elements of events that can be considered a cause or an effect, and are analyzing the sequential nature of these events. While sharpening the students’ summarizing skills, we will use these TPEs as a form of assessment for this chapter.

In the world of words, we are moving on to Unit 4 in Word Wisdom, focusing on communication. We will continue to practice analogies alongside our work with the words presented in the three lessons in the unit.

Next week, on Tuesday, February the 7th, we will be headed to the Skirball Cultural Center for a hands-on Immigration experience. We will leave the school at 9:30 and return no later than 12:15. No special instructions regarding lunch is required; students will bring a small snack with them.

In 5th grade Hebrew we continue to improve our phonetic reading skills, looking at unusual combinations of consonants and vowels, and learning to sound them out. There is more work to do on the infinitive format, breaking away from simple verbs, and using the “assist” verb such as  Need to… and able to… Within unit three in Chaverim Beivrit, we are learning a song about a baby goat – the kid, who ran to the water spring to drink water – El Hamaayan. This song is connected to the Midrash, about Moses, the devoted shepherd, and the kid (a baby goat) who ran away from the heard because he was thirsty. We are also working on sequential order in a story, first, then, and at the end. Last but not least, in connection with our Wise Learning Process, we are using our depth and complexity tools to look at the big idea of learning deeply through writing or typing unanswered questions. The students read two passages and applied their multiple perspective lenses to write specific questions related to these passages. They all had to include factual, evaluative, and analytical questions. It was very exciting to witness how engaged the students became at their individual level of critical thinking.

In Judaic Studies, students are presenting their work on the three movements within Judaism and about Askenazic and Sephardic Jews. In honor of Tu B’Shvat, we will be exploring various biblical and rabbinic texts relating to our responsibility of taking care of the environment and looking at multiple perspectives amongst the rabbis. We honored Tyler Shahery, Sophia Mevorakh and Alex Binafard at our Thursday Shacharit service. This Friday, Bianca Dardashti and Tyler Khaloyan will share their D’var Torah in each of their classrooms.

In Mindfulness, 5th graders continue to explore the power of being in the here and now. We have talked a lot about our thoughts and how they continually tend to drift back to the past or catapult us into the future. We have had many class discussions on how Mindfulness can anchor us in the here and now, allowing the conscious mind to intervene at such moments with a light touch, a gentle redirection of our mental energies so that we stay in the present; aware, mindful, and creative.

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

The 6th grade mathematicians are starting the third book in the Math Innovations series which focuses on geometry, measurement, and graphing. Their first project will be cutting out a tangram. Tangrams are Chinese puzzles that are cut into seven geometric shapes and can be combined to form a variety of objects and figures.

In social studies, the students are continuing to work on their independent research papers on a topic of their choice relating to ancient Egypt. They are also beginning to learn about various features of the ancient civilizations in the Indus Valley.

In Hebrew, we are deepening our learning by looking for context clues in the text and using them to draw conclusions about a concept or an idea. In Judaic Studies, our 6th graders are studying Judaism in the modern era, discovering how the freedoms promised by the American Revolution, the French Revolution, and Emancipation shape Jewish thought and Jewish practice. Soon, most of the students will be studying the birth of Reform, Conservative, and Orthodox Judaism, so be sure to ask them a few questions!

In Mindfulness, 6th graders continue to explore the power of being in the here and now. We have talked a lot about our thoughts and how they continually tend to drift back to the past or catapult us into the future. We have had many class discussions on how Mindfulness can anchor us in the here and now, allowing the conscious mind to intervene at such moments with a light touch, a gentle redirection of our mental energies so that we stay in the present; aware, mindful, and creative.
