All School News – March 30, 2017

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

Kindergartners have been busy researching flamingos, condors, and okapis as we complete our animal study units. The students have worked across disciplines, integrating science, math, art, and language arts into a variety of projects. We look forward to inviting you all into our classrooms to see our learning up close and in person on March 31.

In math, students have been learning how to count on and count back. For example, if there are 10 objects, and 4 are in view, how many are hidden? Try rolling a dot die with your kindergartner, and asking them how many more are needed to make a 10.

In Hebrew and Judaic Studies, the students have been learning about the Passover holiday. They have been practicing singing the songs, chanting the blessings, and learning the Passover narrative. Students are working hard to complete Haggadot that they will be able to use at their home Seders.

When we stop to find good in every situation, we discover that suddenly our life is filled with gratitude. Gratitude is a feeling that nurtures the soul – when we steer our attention to what’s good about our experiences, we naturally feel a greater sense of joy. It’s important to note, however, that gratitude isn’t about denying what’s wrong; solely acknowledging the positive and avoiding the negative can do us much psychological harm. We continue to bring an awareness to Wise kindergartners in noticing the good things and the bad, without attachments to either. Mindful gratitude helps us appreciate those lovely moments in life, whilst at the same time enabling us to make more of those lovely moments for others. We can’t feel grateful for things we don’t notice, and so mindfulness and gratitude go hand-in-hand.

Warmly,

The Kindergarten Teachers

Dear 1st Grade Parents,

In 1st grade this past week, our spelling and phonics pattern has been hard c and soft c. For example, we learned that if the c is followed by an i, an e, or a y, it is a soft c (i.e. face, circle). We are continuing to work in our individualized phonics and reading groups, which allow for differentiation. In math, we’ve started learning double-digit addition without regrouping – we have a bunch of budding mathematicians in 1st grade!

In our study of American symbols in social studies, we have just wrapped up learning about the Liberty Bell. Did you know it weighs 2,080 pounds??? As we move forward, we will be focusing on Mount Rushmore and its unique history and meaning…we’ll have more fun facts for you soon!

First Graders went straight from Purim to Passover! We are on a journey to the Seder as we learn the order of the meal, the blessings, prayers and songs. We are engaging in simple Hebrew conversations about the symbols and continuing to create our Torah that is teaching us the significance of the holiday. Spring is here and we are very busy little bees!

When we stop to find good in every situation, we discover that suddenly our life is filled with gratitude. Gratitude is a feeling that nurtures the soul – when we steer our attention to what’s good about our experiences, we naturally feel a greater sense of joy. It’s important to note, however, that gratitude isn’t about denying what’s wrong; solely acknowledging the positive and avoiding the negative can do us much psychological harm. We continue to bring an awareness to Wise 1st graders in noticing the good things and the bad, without attachments to either. Mindful gratitude helps us appreciate those lovely moments in life, whilst at the same time enabling us to make more of those lovely moments for others. We can’t feel grateful for things we don’t notice, and so mindfulness and gratitude go hand-in-hand.

Dear 2nd Grade Parents,

Last week, 2nd graders were busy taking a pretend road trip through the state of California. They learned about various locations, famous landmarks, and tourist attractions. In addition, we studied the major cities and the unique qualities of the national parks in California. They created their own map of California and used it to help them write about their very own pretend road trip through the state. This exercise allowed them to demonstrate their knowledge of directional words. This week, we are very excited to start our Heroes unit. We continue to practice the skill of note-taking. This will prepare the students to delve into their biography books and start taking their own notes.

In Hebrew, 2nd graders have finished studying the unit on Shabbat. We have learned to read and have conversations using Shabbat vocabulary. As a culminating activity, both classes joined Mrs. Bahat in Room 52 for a Shabbat celebration (you can view the video on the 2nd Grade Facebook Group page). We recited prayers, sang songs, played games, and enjoyed that special Shabbat feeling together. We are now busy preparing for our beautiful 2nd grade Seder.

In Judaic Studies, students have been working very hard on Passover preparations. They have been practicing the four questions, learning the prayers, singing the songs, understanding the significance of the number 4 in relation to Passover, and becoming familiar with the objects on the Seder plate and their special meaning. In addition, we have been reading the stories of Moses and his sister, Miriam, and understanding why we consider them our heroes. Our big 2nd grade Seder will be next Thursday, April 6th. You will be notified by your room parent regarding your Passover food assignment.

Second grade Praying with Parents is tomorrow, March 31 at 8:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary. We look forward to sharing a meaningful Shabbat experience with you and your child – see you there!

Dear 3rd Grade Parents,

Last week in social studies, the 3rd graders began their presentations focusing on a Los Angeles historical site. They have been practicing with specific guidelines for a strong presentation in mind: preparedness, speaking clearly, proper eye contact, and enthusiasm for their topic. We are all learning so much about our city and look forward to hearing the remaining presentations this week.

In 3rd grade Hebrew, students are having fun singing Passover songs, reading in the Haggadah, and learning about the Seder plate and what each item symbolizes. Students are learning about the mispar 4 (the number 4) in the Haggadah and are practicing their oral skills by explaining how to celebrate Passover in Hebrew to a friend!

In Judaic Studies, 3rd graders have been hard at work preparing for Passover. We are totally immersed in the holiday as we practice the prayers and songs, and learn about the stories, customs and traditions! We are finalizing our writing on the person we interviewed about their personal path to freedom. If you have not yet sent in a photograph, please do so ASAP…an email attachment to Mrs. Volterra is the quickest and easiest method. These completed projects will be on display after the Passover Miracle performance, next Friday, April 7th. Looking forward to an interesting and meaningful performance by our 3rd graders!

When we stop to find good in every situation, we discover that suddenly our life is filled with gratitude. Gratitude is a feeling that nurtures the soul – when we steer our attention to what’s good about our experiences, we naturally feel a greater sense of joy. It’s important to note, however, that gratitude isn’t about denying what’s wrong; solely acknowledging the positive and avoiding the negative can do us much psychological harm. We continue to bring an awareness to Wise 3rd graders in noticing the good things and the bad, without attachments to either. Mindful gratitude helps us appreciate those lovely moments in life, whilst at the same time enabling us to make more of those lovely moments for others. We can’t feel grateful for things we don’t notice, and so mindfulness and gratitude go hand-in-hand.

Dear 4th Grade Parents,

Last week in 4th grade we continued to learn about disenos and ranchos. Students worked together to create a thoughtful land grant proposal in order to persuade the Governor to grant them their land. With terrific effort and thought, the students’ diseno blueprints came out absolutely beautiful. In math, we continue our unit on geometry, as well as understanding the difference between and how to calculate area and perimeter. We have been very busy!

Next Tuesday, April 4, our 4th graders will be participating in a special Passover Experience. Students will be able to explore Jewish values related to Passover, along with highlighting ways to celebrate Passover in a meaningful way. Room parents were notified with items needed for this grade level event.

In 4th grade Hebrew, students have been practicing the Hagaddah reading and focusing on the idea of power and leadership. Their writing assignment about a Passover Seder requires them to use patterns and details to create sentences that will describe their Passover experience.

When we stop to find good in every situation, we discover that suddenly our life is filled with gratitude. Gratitude is a feeling that nurtures the soul – when we steer our attention to what’s good about our experiences, we naturally feel a greater sense of joy. It’s important to note, however, that gratitude isn’t about denying what’s wrong; solely acknowledging the positive and avoiding the negative can do us much psychological harm. We continue to bring an awareness to Wise 4th graders in noticing the good things and the bad, without attachments to either. Mindful gratitude helps us appreciate those lovely moments in life, whilst at the same time enabling us to make more of those lovely moments for others. We can’t feel grateful for things we don’t notice, and so mindfulness and gratitude go hand-in-hand.

Dear 5th Grade Parents,

“Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” What do these words mean? How do they impact you? After our analysis of the Declaration of Independence, the 5th grade students have an idea! From the Declaration, we move forward into the writing of the US Constitution, the laws of our new country. Concurrent with this study, we will dive into a mini research project: The ABC’s of the American Revolution and Constitution. We’re starting our research before break in order to determine important people on which to focus our investigation, and select reputable sources for information. During the break, students need to continue gathering information about their selected person. After the break, we will instruct students on how to compile the research into mini essays. Additionally, we will help students create accompanying illustrations that demonstrate their understanding of the chosen people and their impacts on the Revolution and/or Constitution.

We will continue Unit 5 of Word Wisdom after break; students will have each lesson’s words on Quizlet to review so they’re not forgotten!

Next Wednesday, April 5, our 5th graders will be participating in our Passover Journey. Room parents were notified with items needed for this class event. At our Thursday morning service, we honored Olivia Pink, David Tishbi, Katie Frohlich, Ethan Saba and Alex Novian as our Klei Kodesh leaders. Sophie Tenenbaum, Michel Benun, Emmily Ghadooshahy and Alexa Simantob will share their D’var Torah in their respective classes.

On Monday we kicked off the Wise Passover SOVA Drive. In connection with this important project, this week we are focusing on numerous big ideas from the Haggadah. The Seder, with its customs and rituals, is a rich meal that takes place in a certain order. While matzah is called the “bread of affliction” or “the bread of poverty”, we learned the big idea that Pesach is a holiday that invites everyone to join us for the Seder. No one should remain hungry, or left behind alone. The students, speaking in short paragraphs in Hebrew, are conversing and asking each other thought provoking questions about these subjects. These exercises are also helping the students expand their ability while using the infinitive form – they are becoming more skilled in their speech.

When we stop to find good in every situation, we discover that suddenly our life is filled with gratitude. Gratitude is a feeling that nurtures the soul – when we steer our attention to what’s good about our experiences, we naturally feel a greater sense of joy. It’s important to note, however, that gratitude isn’t about denying what’s wrong; solely acknowledging the positive and avoiding the negative can do us much psychological harm. We continue to bring an awareness to Wise 5th graders in noticing the good things and the bad, without attachments to either. Mindful gratitude helps us appreciate those lovely moments in life, whilst at the same time enabling us to make more of those lovely moments for others.

Dear 6th Grade Parents,

In Mrs. Tanner’s reading class, students are now reading Wonder by R.J. Palacio, and they will be connecting it to the themes of previously read novels, such as “don’t judge a book by its cover.” One of the themes they will be exploring is kindness, examining how it develops throughout the novel while making connections to their own lives.

In social studies, 6th graders are beginning their unit on the Silk Road. They will be learning about the items and ideas exchanged, challenges experienced, and the long term effects on global connections. As a culminating project, the students will be creating a journal from the perspective of a traveler on the Silk Road.

Important Upcoming Dates:
Social Studies Journal Project | Thursday, April 6
Miss Shpall’s Reading Class | Quiz on Friday, April 7

In Hebrew, we are getting ready to celebrate a meaningful Pesach. The students are reading from the Haggadah, singing the songs and talking about the customs and rituals…all in Hebrew!

In Judaic Studies, our 6th graders have embraced their study of Zionism, exploring how early Zionists gathered support, addressed the logistical problems associated with creating a new country, and gave birth to a culture that continues to enrich World Judaism today. In order to deepen their understandings of Zionism before and during the Palestinian Mandate, students worked together to create advertisements for Jewish, Arab, and British interests from the period, as well as European and American Zionists.

When we stop to find good in every situation, we discover that suddenly our life is filled with gratitude. Gratitude is a feeling that nurtures the soul – when we steer our attention to what’s good about our experiences, we naturally feel a greater sense of joy. It’s important to note, however, that gratitude isn’t about denying what’s wrong; solely acknowledging the positive and avoiding the negative can do us much psychological harm. We continue to bring an awareness to Wise 6th graders in noticing the good things and the bad, without attachments to either. Mindful gratitude helps us appreciate those lovely moments in life, whilst at the same time enabling us to make more of those lovely moments for others. We can’t feel grateful for things we don’t notice, and so mindfulness and gratitude go hand-in-hand.
